It's entirely possible that the musicians on PC Music aren't purposely critiquing our culture. There's an enigmatic nature to the label that makes it easy to overanalyse without having a specific voice to speak for the music. In an industry where everyone's trying to keep it 'real', it's ironically refreshing to have a label embracing some of the critiques of this generation.A.G. Cook's label PC Music will be putting on a SXSW showcase on Thursday, March 19 at Empire Garage with their artists Hannah Diamond, GFOTY, QT, Danny L Harle, Spinee, easyFun and Cook himself, plus affiliates SOPHIE, Felicita and Kane West. It runs from 8 PM to 2 AM, and badges will be accepted.
While I've tried to answer the question of 'what is PC Music?', I fear i've only further confused myself. Such is the intrigue of the label. The best way to discover it, is to listen to it. On first attempt, you'll most likely hate but like a sugar-addiction it will grow on you. Before you know it, you'll be asking "Please sir, can I have some more?" [TheInterns.net]
In conjunction with the announcement, A.G. Cook and Hannah Diamond released a new song, "Drop FM," which you can listen to below...

Perfect Pussy / people sitting on grass
One of Pitchfork's SXSW events in Austin this year was the first of two day parties at French Legation Museum, which we caught this past Wednesday (3/12). The show was set up across two outdoor stages in the museum's large grass area, with people (including many parents and their children) lounging around the entire venue, not just near the stages. For the most part, the stages were separated by genre, with the dancey sounds of SOPHIE, Cashmere Cat, The Range, DJ Rashad and more on one, and the rock sounds of Perfect Pussy, Speedy Ortiz, Ex Hex and more on the other.
I mainly caught the latter three. Perfect Pussy were plagued by some technical difficulties, but otherwise intense as always (we also caught them on a bridge, at NPR, and at Red 7). Speedy sounded great too. They get better every time and the new stuff was excellent live. Ex Hex also put on a fantastic set that has me looking very forward to their album. (We also caught Speedy and Ex Hex at our Saturday BV party. Stay tuned for pics from that.)
Amanda was there for Empress Of, SOPHIE, and Perfect Pussy. Pictures of those are in this post, and they continue below...
