SXSW 2011: Austra

As an armchair warrior of SXSW 2011, I’ve been glued to Twitter and the blogs for clues pointing to the buzz bands of 2011.  Fortunately, one doesn’t have to be extra sharp to pick up on the clear and present hype around Austra. Last night, tweets from two of my favorite music nuts, Amrit Singh at Stereogum and Seraphina at Buzz Bands LA, confirmed that Austra, clad in tons of glitter, ruled. (Period.)

#Trust me, you want to have Austra’s “Beat and the Pulse” (FREE via Soundcloud) on your playlist this Friday night.

Check out Stereogum’s pre-SXSW predictive post on Austra.
