    Magnetic South at SXSW

    March 11, 2013

    If you are in Austin this week, there is one stop you gotta make: Schmaltz. Yes, this is the best vegan food truck in the city but it's also ground zero for a Magnetic South Revue. Our dear pals from Southern Indiana are back in the mess that is SXSW for some unofficial shenanigans, mostly spear-headed by Apache Dropout and Thee Open Sex. On Thursday they will take over the area of 913 E Cesar Chavez from 1 to 6 p.m. Also on this Hoosier bill: Thee Tsunamis, Crys, Vacation Club and our cousins from Knoxville, the Psychic Baos. Eat a couple seitan reubans and hi-five the Tsunamis for us since we can't make it this year.

    Point yr compass south

    February 14, 2013

    Our best pals at Magnetic South studio/label in Bloomington released two amazing records this month, debut LP of Thee Open Sex and Circuit Des Yeux 10-inch. Outside of an Apache Dropout 45, the studio has released a ton of cassettes from Southern Indiana bands and assorted mix tapes of lost/found singles -- yet these sides are their first majorly distributed statments. Thee Open Sex somehow mash Popul Vu trance and Iggy Pop fatalism. It's a bizarre, heavy rock record that we've been playing non-stop lately. Fab cover art comes via Mad Monk and Xerox the Kid. Check 'em out.
