Foster the People, Kimbra

There are a few buzz bands at South by Southwest each year—OK, nearly a thousand of them. In 2012, many ears were turned to Kimbra, the New Zealand pop singer, who recently received notoriety in the United States for her contribution to Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know,” as well as back home and in Australia for the fall release of her full-length Vows, later released in North America in May. When I finally caught the doll-faced frontwoman in Austin, she stole the show from Dr. John, as she glamorously strutted her stuff and billowed eyes-closed melodies from somewhere deep inside her petite frame before the NOLA legend’s slot. Foster the People headline the show; Mayer Hawthorne & the County are also on the bill.
