Harmony Korine/Die Antwoord Short to Premiere at SXSW, Tristen Gets Stoned, Across Tundras on A.V.



Die Antwoord at The Cannery Ballroom in Nov. 2010
* As you may recall, Die Antwoord shot a short film with director Harmony Korine when they were in Nashville to play The Cannery. The Spin was invited to be on set for part of that, then told that the band wouldn't allow it. So we missed seeing the wheelchair-bound gun-shooting mayhem firsthand. But Pitchfork reports that the film, Umshini Wam, will premiere at South by Southwest on Tuesday, March 15 at Austin's State Theatre. [P4K]

* Denise Grollmus penned a painful, intimate essay reflecting on her marriage to, and divorce from, The Black Keys' Patrick Carney. "I couldn't be a tour widow anymore," she writes. "It was killing me." And at one point she refers to Dan Auerbach as "a soccer jock who idolized Dave Matthews and G. Love and the Special Sauce." I don't know anyone involved personally, so all I can say is that it's an incredibly intense read. [Salon]

* Tristen's Charlatans at the Garden Gate garners three-and-a-half stars from Will Hermes at Rolling Stone, thank you very much: "She flaunts a philosophy major's palette amidst echoes of vintage rockabilly and girl group pop." [Rolling Stone]

* Across Tundras get a shout from The A.V. Club, probably because they know a guy there, but probably also because they're awesome and signed to Neurot. [The A.V. Club]
