SXSW 2013 Preview: Paws

Paws might be the best 90's College-Rock act that never was. Based in Glasgow, they played their first gig in 2010 and have released a plethora of singles, and EPs. However, it was the release of their full-length record, Cokefloat! that really started to gain the band a reputation. Filled with hooky, garage-pop it's hard to not think about bands like Dinosaur Jr or Polaris when you listen to Paws but is there really anything wrong with that? I suppose you could consider bands like Yuck and The Joy Formidable to be their peers but I feel like even if you don't like those band you might still like Paws.

It's usually a good sign for an artist when they have multiple, official showcases at SXSW. As you can see, if you're strictly official you still have two chances to catch a set from Paws. If you're unofficial or doing the blend, you have twice as many opportunities.
