SXSW Preview Pt. 6 – Greg Koons’ “L.A. Looks Prettier On TV”

(Editor’s Note: Just in case you’re actually paying attention and visiting with any regularity, I thought I’d better warn you that I’m off on vacation from tomorrow (March 1) until Thursday (March 6). I’m pretty sure I won’t be posting during that time, so visit the other fine sites on my sidebar and wish me well down in Mexico.)

The debut record by Greg Koons has been produced by Matt Keating. It doesn’t arrive until the fall but I’ve been a big fan of Matt’s (here) so immediately gave this youngster the benefit of the doubt based on just this one song. “Los Angeles Looks Prettier On TV” has that rare element of a catchy chorus combined with plenty of expository details.

Greg Koons’ SXSW showcase is Thursday, March 13 at Stephen F’s Bar.

Selfishly I wanted to be one of the first to post about Sera Cahoone’s Sub Pop debut but Largehearted Boy has beat me to it. Largehearted Boy has the new song from Sera Cahoone.

  1. Sera Cahoone is local to my area, but I don’t think I’ve ever gotten to see her. I really like her stuff, though. I’m really glad she’s on Sub Pop.
