SXSW Preview: Yearbook Committee

Yearbook Committee

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting bands that are playing at SXSW whose SXSW preview track I enjoyed. I have no idea if a live set will live up to the promise of a track but hopefully, these can help augment your Austin schedules!

Yearbook Committee‘s “Like Seasons Overlapping” gives off a wonderful Glen Hansard/Swell Season/Damien Rice vibe and the lyrics contain simple gems like “You and I are like seasons overlapping”. The crescendo up to a trumpet release reminds me a bit of Sufjan Stevens. The recording is a bit raw but I’m eager to hear what it sounds like live! They’ll be playing at The Velveeta Room on Thursday, March 15 from 8:00PM – 8:40PM.

    Shawn, thanks for the write-up! I know I’m biased, but “Like Seasons Overlapping” is GREAT live. We hope to see you at the show! :)
