Watch American Aquarium Jam a Few Songs in a Van at SXSW
Every single time we catch American Aquarium live, we're more and more impressed. From frontman BJ Barham's perfectly crafted lyrics to the entire band sounding as tight as ever, few alt-country rockers do it better than the boys from Raleigh, North Carolina.
At this year's edition of SXSW, American Aquarium played nine shows in three days, kicking things off with a session with Jam in the Van at the GQ House. Jam in the Van is the world's first solar powered mobile music studio, and Barham and company crowded in to film three live tracks from their latest full-length album, Wolves. Check out "Southern Sadness" in the video above and "Losing Side of Twenty Five" and "Family Problems" below.
Jam in the Van has an exciting 2015 planned, with stops at the California Roots Festival, BottleRock, High Sierra Music Festival and Telluride Blues and Brews Festival. You can stay up-to-date with everything happening in the mobile studio's world here.
American Aquarium's self-released new record, Wolves, is out now on CD, digital and vinyl formats. Pick up a copy at the band's official website and then make sure to check out their always-packed tour itinerary.
