Novillero
By Jill WilsonYou know you're in Texas when new fans of Winnipeg band Novillero pronounce the moniker's double Ls as a Y, giving it an unexpected Tex-Mex flair. Unfortunately, the band's early set time meant not enough people saw its tight, bright Kinks-influenced set full of sparkling melodies and sturdy rhythms. The band's affection for the '60s was a nice break from constant stream of new wave revivalists who seemed to define "retro” at SXSW. Even nicer was the way they weren't content merely to ape the styles of the era but redefined them and gave them a fresh, modern gloss.
