NPR Music recently released their Austin 100 playlist consisting of 100 songs by 100 different artists performing at SXSW this year. The playlist has introduced me to many new artists over the past few years, some of whom I've become a huge fan of.
Several artists of this year's playlist have stood out to me, but so far, Possessed by Paul James has caught my ear the most. "Hurricane" is exactly what its title promises: a whirlwind of sound, emotion and raw talent. Enjoy.
