Are You Feeling This (SXSW Edition) | Julie Peel, Copacobana Club, The Deaf and Miss Li

Lots of songs never make it to the radio that are getting lots of attention online. Live tracks, sanctioned and unsanctioned remixes, mash-ups, overlooked gems by unsigned artists. Every week on “Are You Feeling This,” we invite you to hear what the buzz is all about. You tell us what you think. Vote in the Are You Feeling This poll, leave a comment, send us an e-mail.

In just one week, 88Nine Producer Adam Carr and myself will be heading to SXSW interactive, film, music conference and festival, so we decided to do a SXSW edition of “Are You Feeling This”.  All of the artists featured are performing at this year’s SXSW in Austin, TX. We have music from Julie Peel, Copacobana Club, The Deaf and Miss Li. Take a listen below and let us know what you think by voting in the “Are You Feeling This” listener poll.

Next up is a band out of Brazil that goes by the name of Copacobana Club. The band’s sound can be describe as an indie rock band with a Brazilian flavor. The band formed back in 2007 and their inspiration was to simply make good dance music and the track below is an example of that.

The final artist comes from the country of Sweden, which as of late has been producing a lot of great artists. Her name is Miss Li, and you have probably heard her music in a recent ipod nano video. From Wikipedia:
Linda Carlsson (born July 6, 1982), better known by her stage name Miss Li, is a Swedish singer. She was born in Borlänge, but now lives in Stockholm. Her single “Don’t Try To Fool Me” has been featured on the Showtime original series Weeds, as well as Grey’s Anatomy. Her song “Bourgeois Shangri-La” from the album Dancing the Whole Way Home was used by Apple in the iPod Nano 5G television commercial. Her song “Oh Boy” was used in a 2010 Volvo advert.
