Death From Above 1979 at SXSW, by Graeme Flegenheimer

The great reunited Canadian duo Death From Above 1979 are less than a month away from releasing The Physical World, their first album in over a decade, but up until now, the only song we’ve heard from it is the badass single “Trainwreck 1979.” Last night, though, the band played a small show at the Troubadour in L.A., and they took the opportunity to debut another new one called “Right On, Frankenstein.” The fan-recorded live version of the song is no substitute for a studio recording, but it sounds frantic and intense and riff-happy, the way a DFA1979 song should. Check out the video below.
