Leave it to three Argentinians living in Spain to show all of SXSW how to rock! While their blend of garage rock, blues, and proto-punk made for one of the finest albums of last year, Capsula must be heard (and seen) live to be fully appreciated. Guitarist and vocalist Martin Guevara simultaneously channels Iggy, Stiv, and Lux as he throws around his guitar, swallows his mic, and screams bloody murder. Coni Duchess meanwhile, like a Latina Kim Gordon, shakes and thumps the bass with equal parts power and seduction. And Drummer Ignacio Villarejo hammers the kit to oblivion while he propels the group through one scuzzy riff-laden jam after another. Check out these videos to get just a sense of Capsula’s live raw power:
