Lost In Austin: Suckers

Nathan and I were just discussing the other day when it was that we really got into Brooklyn based experimental pop group Suckers.  We think it was way back in 2009 when we sent out an email interview to the band for ACL fest and then left very impressed with an amazing live show from the upstart band.  From that point, Suckers has landed on year end lists for music, appeared on award’s lists for performances during SXSW, and eventually played our SXSW show this year.  All this culminated in a love affair with the band that has turned into a major bro-mance.  All that being said, we of course had to ask these guys to take part in our lost in Austin takeaways while they were in town at Red 7 last Friday.  The resulting video is a beautiful take on their new song “Chinese Brail” from the just released Candy Salad.  Follow the jump for video and more info.

This video is once again provided by the lovely gents over at Guerilla Waltz who really make all this possible.  They also have accumulated quite a nice youtube playlist since their big move to Austin.  You people not into the whole youtube thing can check out the new Suckers video on vimeo as well.

Thanks again amigos for doing the video and thanks to Dillon and the boys over at Guerilla Waltz for being awesome.
