Joe Pug @ SXSW (part one)

Joe Pug was kind enough to play two shows with us at SXSW. I read somewhere that his style resembles that of someone who delivers each line as though it were the last one. I have only seem Joe perform twice, but I couldn't agree more. He sings about conflicts and concerns as universal as folk songs, but with a very modern emotion behind it that makes it unique. And as irrelevant as it is, he's a lovely bloke as well. These two are from the first half of his set. My favorite "How Good You Are" and one from his latest EP (NATION OF HEAT), called simply "Hymn #35."
