Podcast 14 - ACL 2010

When it comes to music festivals in Austin, you can trust me to help you navigate the sea of unknown artists. Just like I did for SXSW, I have listened to every artist coming to ACL and put together a mix of those essentially unknown artists that I think deserve a little more attention. Since I only had time for 8 songs there are obviously some people missing. So in addition to those on the mix, here are the rest of my picks for the show.

Beats Antique
Matt & Kim
Manchester Orchestra
Ted Leo and the Pharmacists
The National
Ruby Jane

Notethat you can go to the ACL website and preview songs from every band. That was my main source.

If you're goin, enjoy the show, and if not, well, maybe next year.

Thanks for listening and don't forget to support the artists,
