MY TOP 30: Year 3 Posts of ALL-TIME!

20. Quiet Company pop quiz
The SXSW 2011 popolio pop quiz interviews are really making a dent in this countdown.  This is the fourth one and the first to feature an ATX band.  Quiet Company is holding it down at Number 20.  BRAIDS took the Number 30 spot with theirs, the Jezabels’ Number 23, and I just posted Peelander-Z’s at Number 21.

See the original Wednesday, March 9, 2011 post here — Quiet Company pop quiz interview – SXSW Artist.  It includes their song, “How Do You Do It,” and Leona Lewis’ video for “I See You” (Theme from Avatar).
