every photo we took at sxsw

We started editing photos from SXSW and realized we took 864 shots. M|H thinks that number shows restraint on our part, but it’s still a lot of photos to comb through and edit. To keep you from having to wait, we put every single photo into a two minute and fifty-three second video for you. Check back for edited shots!

sxsw 2012: videos!

After a five-year hiatus, we finally made it back down to Austin, Texas’s South By Southwest festival. It was our first year going without a badge, and it turned out surprisingly well – things are now a lot more accessible to the average fan. To kick off the week, we’d like to share the videos we took of some the artists we were excited to see. Check back at the end of the week for some professionally shot videos we love. Enjoy!

this quiet little death

In the summer of 2003, The Jealous Sound released their debut album Kill Them With Kindness. It contained the gems “Hope For Us“, “Anxious Arms“, and “The Fold Out” – songs that I haven’t tired of to this day. The album had its roots in emo, but had more in common with the band’s 90s predecessors than with the crop of upstarts like Fall Out Boy.

Nine years later, the band has released its second full-length, A Gentle Reminder. The continuity is flawless; a little more refined, an updated sound – the band grew up with the rest of us. The core of the JS’s sound is still there – vocalist Blair Shehan’s deliberate delivery, the guitar work that guitar work that inevitably makes one think of something sad and far away, and a sense of urgency quietly nagging in the back of your brain.

A Gentle Reminder drops 01.31.12.

Stream the album below until its release on Tuesday.
