Sound on Sound Review: Ariel Pink
Cali pop weirdo Ariel Pink remains both widely influential and subversive. Behind a decade of amassed live train wrecks and incendiary interviews, the avant-garde act’s Sunday night performance at Cheer Up Charlies proved the first Sound on Sound makeup show to sell out.

Kurt & Courtney’s Last Stand
Cerebral Aussie rocker Courtney Barnett and Philly psych twanger Kurt Vile are unparalleled in their detail-oriented, stream-of-consciousness songwriting. Lotta Sea Lice, a sleepy album coalescing the idiosyncrasies of both weirdos, dropped mid-October and sold out ACL Live at the Moody Theater Saturday night for the duo’s final show of the tour.

Sound on Sound Review: Yelle
The adage that music transcends language holds true for French electro-pop trio Yelle. The majority of the band’s full-house SOS audience had obviously forgotten what little French they learned in high school, but it hardly mattered.

Sound on Sound Review: Cannibal Corpse
Perfect pyramid: 30 minutes of death metal blort from Arizona’s opening Gatecreeper, 45 minutes of tearaway super thrash by Dallas marauders Power Trip in the middle, and 83 minutes behind the wall of gore erected courtesy of pioneer butchers Cannibal Corpse. Solely missing from Mohawk’s SOS bill Friday was a Ren faire forest 39 minutes east of Austin.
