MP3 of the Day #166: SPEAK

By on Tuesday, 13th April 2010 at 10:00 am

For those of you who might not know of the town in Texas and the March film / music / media annual phenomenon that is South by Southwest, Austin is *the* place to hear alternative music, because the scene there is so nurturing to up and coming bands. Here’s an example. SPEAK is an Austin quartet that’s been called a pop powerhouse by American music media, and local paper the Austin Chronicle named them ‘Best Band’ in their yearly Austin Music Awards. Not bad at all. The band recently signed to Playing in Traffic Records in America, and their debut album is scheduled to be released sometime in 2010.

This year at SXSW, the band held a release party for their EP ‘Hear Here’ at Austin club the Independent. One of the songs they unleashed live was their cover of ‘Digital Love’ by heralded French electropop duo Daft Punk. Today, we’ve got the track for you to download and enjoy. For those of you who are left cold with most electronic music, I suggest listening to this: it’ll make you go all warm inside by the fun vibe. Hearing this makes me wish I was there for the event. And I’m definitely interested in hearing more from this band very soon.
