The folks at SXSW decided to make my life more complicated in adding more bands last Thursday (10/01/2013) to their officially showcasing list. Since I’d already published my pop and pop hybrid UK act list last Tuesday, I decided it wouldn’t be fair to leave anyone out, so here is an addendum…

Camera Obscura – I couldn’t be happier that Traceyanne Campbell and company are heading back to these shores, after only seeing them once – in 2009 – in support of ‘My Maudlin Career’, which still rates highly on my favourite albums of all time. Sterling songwriting that tickles the heartstrings? Yes, please.

Frightened Rabbit – Scottish indie rock band that started out as a cult favourite in Britain but are now pretty much household names in America, selling out increasingly larger venues on every successive North American tour. The group from Selkirk is showing everyone how it’s done – with great songs and loads of hard work.

Lovelife – whatever to became to Viva Brother? Singer Leonard Newell and former Mirrors member Ally Young have reconvened to this poppier duo.

Scanners – eclectic alt-pop band from London already beloved by America and the UK for all the times their songs that have already been used in television spots.
