Danny Malone

Danny Malone is considered progressive folk music or folk ‘n’ roll. What makes his performances stand out is his mixture of his indie rock folk sound with his pop ‘n’ lock choreography. Indie Sounds music blog left favorable reviews for Danny Malone’s 2009 album Cuddlebug. His new album Balloons has garnered interest especially because of his new song “Spiderlegs” which online magazine, In Your Speakers, believes to be his most versed track yet as well as being Loudersoft’s song of the week. He has performed official shows on SXSW from 2010 to 2012 and has also been featured in the Austin Chronicle for the past two weeks.





Taft

A 4-5 piece rock band that writes vocal forward, dynamic songs. Drawing from influences like The Dirty Projectors and Radiohead, Taft crafts songs that lean heavily on the different textures that the voice is able to make. Without forgetting the importance of a good beat, Taft writes songs with rhythms that you want to move your foot and (god forbid) wave your arms too! Tonight Taft release their new EP, Intarsia.
