The Megaphonic Thrift – SXSW 2010 at WOXY

Posted 18 Mar 2010

Hailing all the way from Norway, The Megaphonic Thrift have quickly become my favorite new band.  On my first listen, I simply stated “Sonic Youth;” clearly there’s an influence there.  But with a heavy, straight-forward neo-psych sound, the band is also reminiscent The Brian Jonestown Massacre and follow Norwegians Serena-Maneesh.  We were lucky enough to have them stop by the WOXY studio for a flawless set during SXSW 2010.  Fellow fan Joe Long and I even got to name our own set!  Check out our number one request, “Talks Like a Weed Kind,” in the video we captured during their Lounge Act performance.
