1, 2, 3 - "Riding Coach" & "Heat Lightnin'"

1,2,3, are a Pittsburgh band on the rise. Here is what The New York Times had to say about their SXSW appearance

"1,2,3 — a band from Pittsburgh with a Google-defying name — fought technical problems to play songs that put cantankerous twists into taut rock structures. During its brief set, songs hinted at lurching roots-rock, Talking Heads’ new wave funk, the keyboard filigree of progressive rock and the slow roll of a soul ballad. Lead vocals had a wry, scratchy edge, even as they delivered scrappy, snappy choruses: “I’m scared,” went one, “but not that scared.”
