An irregular blog of stuff....Design, Music, Film and Media...things that can interrupt your day (in a good way). By Steven Thomas: Husband, Father, life long indie kid .. I run a digital start up called WOW247.com based in Edinburgh, Scotland.

"During most of the numbers, Hargett – eyes rolling, head turned high – appears as if in a trance induced by the mind-bending, notorious crystalline compound, and throughout the set, barely even breaks breath in between songs. But he need not say anything tonight; the music does all the talking for them."

Here’s DIIV, not sitting on the fence about SXSW… CS

Hi Austin. Fuck SXSW. There… I said it.
Here, the music comes last. 5 minute set-up, no sound check, 15 minute set.  The “music” element is all a front, it’s the first thing to be compromised. Corporate money everywhere but in the hands of the artists, at what is really just a glorified corporate networking party. Drunk corporate goons and other industry vampires and cocaine. Everyone is drunk, being cool. “Official” bureaucracy and all their mindless rules.  Branding, branding, branding. It’s bullshit… sorry.
