SXSW Music Highlights Pt. II

Still absorbing the excellent music I heard in Austin last week, some of it expected — if not long-awaited, but much of it newly discovered. Here are some cuts from some of my surprisingly awesome discoveries (new to me, at least) at SXSW.

The Ruby Suns – Tane Mahuta
Spindrift – Beauty
album coverThe Builders and the Butchers – Black Dresses

Clicking on the band name and/or album cover will lead you to an opportunity to purchase the tracks/album.

See my other SXSW posts here and here.

Will probably add a few more to this before all is said and done — but here are the greatest pics from SXSW 2008, Music edition. My photos from interactive are here. Click on individual photos to view captions and please click thru to flickr to add tags, comments and notes!

VIDEO: Icebergs Broken Off the Upsala Glacier & New Years

I took some short videos on my trip — this one was from the catamaran trip to various glaciers in Parque Nacional Los Glaciares. According to the guides, three days prior to our tour, the Upsala Glacier began breaking up sending off these brilliant icebergs seen below and in my photos. Usually the catamaran would go right up to the glacier — which is 4 times the size of Buenos Aires and twice the size of the famous Perito Moreno Glacier. Temperatures had been warm — even for summer.

Also, check out the band just after New Years (and finally it begins getting dark) at Los Cauquenes near Ushuaia, Argentina.
