Our night-time regular haunt during this year’s SXSW Festival was the series of shows presented by Impose Magazine. The “Austin Imposition” took place this year at Longbranch Inn, a cozy East side venue that had the perfect atmosphere for Impose’s steady stream of outstanding bands.

On Saturday night, the highlight of the final evening of SXSW was the performance by Prince Rama. I had seen Prince Rama a couple of years ago at Glasslands when they were a trio, but the band now consists a duo of sisters Taraka and Nimai Larson and their performance was a revelation. The sisters combined stand-up drums with keyboards and effects to create a hypnotic set that entranced the crowd. One spectator exclaimed “that was a religious experience” at the close of the set. Prince Rama played two songs from their most recent record, Trust Now (Paw Tracks), and three newer numbers. We are streaming “Rest in Peace”, the opening track from Trust Now which was nearly seven minutes of bliss at the Longbranch Inn that night.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser MKH-8040 cardioid microphones mounted on a stand at the front of the stage and combined the mics with a soundboard feed. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

    I really enjoyed this. It’s tough to classify the sound, but sweet and ethereal might not be off the mark. Their music moves me, which says a lot. Thank you very much for sharing.
