Here's a live shot of The Most Serene Republic at Emo's in Austin, Texas today (March 13th) for the Arts and Crafts Records day party. They rocked the early set at 12:30 P.M. and were so good that we've selected them for our Best of SXSW feature (coming soon), which will feature all of the great bands we see this week. For now check out our free playlists and SXSW 2008 Pre-Party. Here's the Download Music review of The Most Serene Republic:
"Even by Ontario standards, the latest from the Arts & Crafts top prospects is wildly eclectic. "Population" careers from clean neoclassical piano to earnest emo-punk vocalizing, and while the results are indie pop in allegiance, they don't feel scrawled so much as composed."
