KCRW at South by Southwest
There's only a handful of bands I came to SXSW determined to see and Seattle's Telekinesis was one of them. I caught them at the Austinist day party. They have a singing drummer who had a raccoon stuffed animal on his kit, nice touch.
Here We Go Magic is such a good band name I wanted to hear their music as soon as I heard that a band with such a name existed. Not only that, but singer Luke Temple is the frontman. It took me a few listens to get into the CD but once I did, I really liked the combination of soundscapes, both dreamy and tribal, and straightforward songs. They were really late to start but they drew the crowd out of the shade as soon as they got going.
Waiting on the Harlem Shakes...
