Best of SXSW 2012, Part I

I've reviewed more than 200 videos: believe it or not, less than half those submitted to the mega-multimedia festival SXSW, happening this week in Austin, Texas. Of those 200+, I've selected the top ten to show today.

My FRIDAY SONG PICK OF THE DAY belongs to a band which should make host city Austin very proud. Alt-rock trio Ume will hook you with their melodies, which are both lush and jarring. Have a look at the official video for Captive , the third track on their sophomore album, Phantoms (Modern Outsider, 30 August 2011).
