SXSW 2012 Artist Spotlight – Of Monsters and Men


I’ve grown to really kinda love Of Monsters and Men’s EP Into The Woods over the last month or so, and when I saw they were playing out in Austin for SXSW, I made a mental note that I definitely didn’t want to miss this these guys. They have that indie-folk sound we all love so much, with the same dosage of heartbreak you get when you listen to your favorite Stars song; and their upcoming full length coming out in April should get quite a bit of attention if their hit “Little Talks” is any sort of indicator. But I really, REALLY want to see Of Monsters and Men to rub it in Laura’s face. She loves Of Monsters and Men, she’s the one who told me about them in fact, and she has to work. I mean, she wanted to come out, we really wanted her to come out. It seems like SXSW would be her sort of bag too, but she’s somewhere handcuffed to a desk. And I can’t wait to rub it in her face that I got to see Of Monsters and Men, and she didn’t.

    I just read this whole thing and I wish there was an emodicon of a middle finger!!!! While, I’m chained to my desk the Pinpoint team better be raging and singing with icelandic accents. That said Of Monsters and Men might just be worth catching the red eye….. Party on Wayne!
