I walked into Holy Mountain at SXSW an hour early to catch Holydrug Couple and heard the most beautiful noise coming from the back tent stage. These are the moments you yearn for at Southby, the perfect unknown (to you) band. The drummer from Woods (video) joins up with some New Hampshire friends, a flute and an organ and creates a psych sound that is all their own. When seen live, their music breathes, layer upon layer faster and faster until the prettiest blast comes from everywhere around you, letting you live in MMOSS’s noise forcefield for a moment. It’s early in the year, but their latest Only Children is already on my Best of 2013 list.
