SXSW 2010 Festival Review: dd/mm/yyyy, Liars, Duchess Says, Explode Into Colors, Flying Lotus

This SxSW, FIVE REDEFINE staff members were on hand, rendering it the biggest SxSW for REDEFINE yet. And because three of us definitely attended many a show together, my top five list definitely shares some commonalities with Tim Vordtriede’s. Nonetheless, different takes by different folks, so duplicates be damned, man.   5. Flying Lotus www.flying-lotus.com...Read...

SXSW 2010 Festival Review: WhoMadeWho, The Black Angels, Liars, dd/mm/yyyy, Bear In Heaven

So, despite my whirlwind Americana tour of the Southwest (courtesy of the Cash Only: Diners, Dive Bars, and Yardsales Road Trip), I still managed to enjoy a healthy dose of sonic debauchery in Austin, Texas. Below are my TOP FIVER PICKS from this year’s SxSW Festivus Maximus!   5. The fold-out couch I drooled and...Read...

CMJ Music Marathon 2009: Duchess Says, Malajube, We Are Wolves, Think About Live Show Review

More than a year ago, I was introduced to the raucous electro-indie-punk stylings of Duchess Says. They represented, to me, the perfect hybrid of mainstream dance rock and teen center electro, and in my book, they had the perfect recipe for success. Their song “Black Flag” seemed an automatic indie hipster staple, provided the hipsters...Read...

These Arms Are Snakes Live Show Review

It’s official: These Arms Are Snakes’ frontman Steve Snere is my favorite frontman. Simultaneously goofy and raw, Snere is the kind of guy you might think would run out of signature moves — he has so many, after all — but on this evening in Washington, D.C., far away from where I usually catch them...Read...

SXSW 2009 Festival Review: Hyperpotamus, Scissors For Lefty, Freeland, The Everyday Visuals, Port O’ Brien

Perhaps I’m jaded these days, but out of the 30+ bands I saw this year at SxSW, only one truly astounded me. HEALTH, Constantines, and Anavan won my heart last year, but this year, my heart goes solely to Madrid’s Hyperpotamus, brought to SxSW by SonicBids. Nonetheless, there were definitely other enjoyable acts – albeit...Read...

SXSW 2008 Festival Review: Constantines, Anavan, HEALTH, Old Time Relijun, The Helio Sequence

This year was the first year that any Redefine staff members have managed to make it down to SxSW in Austin. We didn’t know what to expect since SxSW’s reputation proceeds it. Although slightly daunting and involving way too much standing around, SxSW is one amazing event. Some people are mistaken in thinking that SxSW...Read...
