Luella And The Sun: NPR Front Row At Austin's Continental Club During SXSW The Nashville foursome were one of our favorite discoveries at SXSW 2013. Watch Luella and her band bowl us over with fire and brimstone on "Sign of the Judgment."

Front Row

Luella And The Sun: NPR Front Row

Nashville's Luella and the Sun approach the blues and gospel-soul as if these traditions were the food of the gods and they haven't eaten for a week. Luella herself has a ferocious, feminine voice, and performs with zero fear. If you like the White Stripes, you will love the fire and brimstone of "Sign of the Judgment," filmed at Austin's iconic Continental Club on South Congress.
