If you have anything more than a passing interest in music, chances are you’ll either be spending the better part of March cramming in as many of the impossibly awesome/numerous performances and showcases SXSW has lined up for this year (Jack White! The Jesus and Mary Chain! 50 Cent!) or crying profusely over the fact that you’re anywhere but Austin, TX. Regardless of how you’ll be spending the coming weeks though, this week has been a splendid one as far as new music goes, with new tunes from Sufjan Stevens/Serengeti/Son Lux, Free Energy and Beach House. How’s that for a consolation prize?
