Three days into SXSW, and despite a day cut short due to a sick child, i think i may have found my favorite act of the festival. Boston's Tredici Bacci make wonderful homages to 1960's Italian film scores, a kind of mix of chamber pop, baroque orchestral movements, and a bit of tongue-in-cheek humor. The 10-piece band's live act also threw in some No Wave type chaos and some irreverent stage banter into the mix as well. I loved every second of it. Listen to "Drowned" featuring the lovely Jennifer Charles on guest vocals and score the "Amore Per Tutti" LP from NNA Records.
