((Airiel)) Band Profile and Upcoming SXSW Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Written by Patrick McNamara

Airiel has been a band for almost 20 years.

But I just heard them for the first time last week.

I don't know how this happened.

Maybe I just got too distracted by my day job trying to find good new under-the-radar bands to champion.

Well, whatever. We're here now!

And remember, it's never ever too late to get into something excellent.

If you somehow missed out on this Chicago band too, I highly suggest you start your Airiel journey by listening to this epic nine minute swirly gem of a jam (from their album released in 2003 A.D., no less) and sail away to better places.

"One of the greatest shoegaze songs ever made," says whoever posted this video on YouTube years ago.

I don't feel comfortable disagreeing with that statement.
