Portastatic - live from South by Southwest
A side project of Superchunk's Mac McCaughan, Portastatic's lo-fi indie rock retains some of its parent band's upbeat quirkiness, but explores quieter, acoustic sounds as well.
Austin, TX — McCaughan pilots the project, collaborating with a rotating lineup of musicians on each new recording. Portastatic released its first full-length, "I Hope Your Heart is Not Brittle," in 1994 and after many singles and EPs, followed with 2003's "Summer of the Shark."
Songs performed: "White Wave," "Spying on the Spys," and "I Wanna Know Girls."
