MP3: Powersolo - Pirates of the oblivion

As a media partner for that "Danish Dynamite" SXSW showcase on Friday, March 20 (see the banner on the right), it is my duty to tell you at least a little bit about some of the bands playing, so I'll do my best to touch on a few highlights throughout the week. Picking a favorite however, is easy. Powersolo's weirdo hillbilly twang has kept me entertained for many years now and this must be their 2nd or 3rd trip to SXSW, but they've yet to truly break and I'm thinking it's gotta happen eventually. Perhaps this might be the year? They're certainly stepping off on the right foot because "Pirates of the oblivion" is quite possibly their best single ever aside from maybe "Juanito" and that one only ranks so high because of the brilliant video. (Seriously! Go watch it! Now!) But yeah, "Pirates..." is a better song - a bit more driving and way more hand-clappy and perhaps a little less goofy, though the lyrics are still completely nonsensical. It doesn't matter though, it's all about the delivery and I'm sure it's even better in-person. How could it not be? Browse a few live clips and you'll understand.
