SXSW review

“Prince Rama was, undoubtedly, the weirdest, most compelling show I saw all week. Two drummers playing a part that could have easily been done by a lone, competent percussionist? A spacey, autoharp strumming neo-flower child operatically moaning into the microphone? A dirty-moustached, head-banging, keyboard mashing teenager opposite? And when the power blew – as it would several times at Treasure City Thrift over the course of the afternoon – a stomping, clapping, a capella gospel number? Wait, what?

Of the thirty-odd bands I saw at SXSW, Prince Rama also has the songs that stick most clearly in my mind. Processional, noisy, distorted lamentations and proclamations about God-knows-what make Prince Rama a band that one is compelled towards and mesmerized by like Odysseus to his sirens.”

“We use electronics that have the ability to make dance music, but we use these tools to sequence and create a much different sound.” To say the least. Truman Peyote is an astonishing mix of primitivist clattering and modern electronic twerks. It sounds like a Martian tribe emulating pygmy music, or ghostly reverberations from a dancefloor in the future. – Weekly Dig
