I returned from Austin, Texas only this evening, after being immersed in the information orgasm that is SXSW for an entire week +. The prospect of saying anything comprehensive about what went down this year is too daunting for a man fresh off a solid 24 hour stand-by airport sojourn, so I'll just drop a few mp3s on you for the moment and call it a post.
Ever heard of John Maus? He performed at the Todd P. showcase and verily scared the crap out of my friends with a very committed, intense and screamy lo-fi darkwave set.
He also played keys on a few Ariel Pink albums and your feeling about those songs will follow you here as well. They're much more mellow and 'verbed out than what he threw down upon us live.
