The David Mayfield Parade – “Human Cannonball”


Pairs Well With…The Avett Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show, Trampled By Turtles


Authentic country-roots band The David Mayfield Parade returns to SXSW in 2014 in support of last year’s Good Man Down, a mature songwriter’s record that is equally pop-centric and traditionally based. The David Mayfield Parade have the musical prowess to own any stage down in Austin, show stealers with the heart of back-porch pickers.

2012 Review: This honest folk rock band displays their Nashville country roots on their sleeves. Unsurprisingly, The David Mayfield Parade has close ties to The Avett Brothers. Their brand of music is of a slower tempo, carrying an emotional weight to their performances. It’s so important to come off as authentic in this genre, which The David Mayfield Parade brings in spades. Both hopeful and heartbreaking, I could see this band continuing to build momentum throughout the coming years. Their appearance at SXSW will most likely be in support of some new music as their solid debut record was released over a year ago.

Elizabeth & The Catapult – “Salt of the Earth” (live)

 

Pairs Well With…Feist, Tori Amos, Rufus Wainwright

 

After four years, OEB can confirm that Elizabeth & The Catapult have indeed lined up a follow up to The Other Side of Zero.  Like It Never Happened is due in January and we’ve got a few live tracks to go off at this point, including the intriguing vocal adventure “Salt of the Earth”.  Look for jazz, pop, rock and folk all to take turns throughout the eclectic artist’s third album.

2013 Review: Elizabeth & The Catapult return to Austin for their third straight SXSW supporting 2010’s The Other Side of Zero.  I’m sure the Brooklyn indie pop outfit will have some new tunes up their sleeves that hopefully continue their track record of gorgeous piano rock ballads and pop songs.

2012 Review: Elizabeth & the Catapult are making a return appearance to SXSW in support of 2010’s excellent release The Other Side of Zero.  I caught onto the band through last year’s SXSW project and my opinion remains the same.  Vocally, Elizabeth Ziman has an inviting tone, but she can wail a pop melody with the best of them.  There’s a bounciness that is inherent in Elizabeth & the Catapult’s music; I’m surprised she hasn’t been asked to contribute to an iPhone commercial yet.  Lastly, there’s an adventurous spirit in their music, whether if it’s a quirky and inventive break, hand claps or a joyous horn melody (all of which, by the way, can be found throughout the key track “Race You”).  I imagine Elizabeth & the Catapult will be road-testing songs from a third LP for 2012, which given their diverse catalog, could lead us through many different paths.

I bet they are a lot of fun to see live!

I can’t lie about this one, I LOVED Color Me Badd back in the day and this man is the main reason why. I never saw them perform live, but I did see them on enough talk shows to know that his voice is the real deal. 

That being said, this new song from Bryan is catchy and radio worthy, but I feel like it also over processed his gorgeous voice. Great song, Bryan, but I hope you have more coming where I can hear you sing because I know you don’t just sing but SAAAAAANNNG if you know what I’m sayin’ and I think that you do.
