In the final installment of our South X Lullaby series, rising songwriter Torres met us at 2:30 a.m. outside Central Presbyterian Church in Austin, where she had just blown away a large portion of our contingent in SXSW.
Torres, known to the IRS as Mackenzie Scott, performed a plugged-in, but still very intimate version of "A Proper Polish Welcome," one of the early peeks of her upcoming album Sprinter. Considering how much our All Songs Considered crew raved about Scott's performances in Austin, it was the perfect way to end the festival.
