Gearing up for SXSW Pt. 3: Lymbyc Systym

Hi everyone!

I've returned to the land of the living temporarily to announce a SXSW band that I'm excited about: Lymbyc Systym.

This indie post-rock lap-pop duo from Arizona opened for the Album Leaf on the AL's fall tour and had everyone at the shows as impressed as Mr. Jimmy LaValle himself. Some of us were even more impressed because, unlike our beloved LaValle, they don't try to sing along to their instrumental goodness. You know I love you, Jimmy, and that one day you'll have my Fennesz-lovin' lap-trip-hoppin' babies, but dear lord quit it with the singing!

If you're into music by Four Tet, Benevento Russo Duo, Tortoise, Sigur Ros, (you're getting it by now), Lymbyc Systym is guaranteed to be a new favorite. Come see them play in Austin on Friday, March 16 at Lovejoy's.

If you're in Birmingham, AL, you can catch them tonight at the Bottletree around 9:00 p.m. They've driven a long way to get some southern love. Your southern love.
