I know I shouldn’t read too much into it, but Quruli, the one band I want to see more than anything this year at SXSW, is scheduled as part of the Barsuk Records showcase.

Of course, John Vanderslice, a Barsuk artist, is signed to Quruli’s indie label Noise McCartney Records in Japan, so this could very well be a case of reciprocity.

But it would be very, very cool if Barsuk issued Quruli albums here in the States.
