KVRX Local Live 5 - the annual comp. of the best cuts from KVRX Austin's Local Live show. Disc 2 is some fine mellow indie rock & a couple electronic oriented things, while Disc 1 is a variety of Texas homegrown with something for *everyone*.|

2. Downtrodden country tune
*3. Solo acoustic guitar; sliding blues, with a jig at the end
4. Dance-like, jaunty, Jewish
5. Rock song with a little bite
*6. Male singer & his guitar with some weepy phasing effects
7. Pop emo cliches
