Hello, my name is Marc Urselli and I am a 3-time Grammy Award winning engineer, mixer, producer, sound designer based in New York.
This year I attended SXSW again and I am always overwhelmed by the amount of bands that there are. Every year I try to see as many bands as I can and this year I managed to see about 6 per day on average.
I am trying to make the best out of SXSW by contacting all of the other bands I didn't get to see play live, which is why you are getting this email.
I apologize if this is impersonal but if you choose to write me back I promise you my reply will be personal and specific to your music. I don't like writing bulk emails either but there are sooooo many cool bands at SXSW and I regret not being able to see them all and interact with all of them. This is my attempt at doing so because SXSW is a networking opportunity after all and I am trying to network and make the best of it.
I would love for you to check out my discography and see if you find any artists whose music or sound you dig. If you think you might be interested in discussing the possibility of mixing your upcoming single or EP or album I would love to talk to you about it.
Anyway, if you did read my message all the way to here I want to thank you for your time and your patience and for not getting too aggravated by yet another impersonal email. I would love to hear back from you.

We are done. We have spent the last month in America eating pancakes and drinking PBR. We leave Sunday. Our first LP is now recorded (13minutes doesn't constitute a full length whatever most reviewers say or think) Anyways the record is called "OCD Go Go Go Girls" and it'll come out later this year. We recorded it in Portland with Pat Kearns, he's done records for the Exploding Hearts, Clorox girls, Red dons and a load more.

On the other side of things we'll be heading back to America in July to do a 2 week tour of the east coast. If anyone is up for helping with a show you need to contact

We'll be doing a full American tour in October and most likely 10 days in UK/Ireland in September followed by lots of European shows.

Big thanks to Michelle, Jesse, Mika Miko, Marcus, Le Face, Zak, Richie, Rough kids, Black Chris , Juan, Michael, Abe Vigoda, Eat Skull, Paul, Pat and Susan, Doug, Daniel, Red Dons and all the crazy people of Portland. Keep Portland weird!

Next show is with the YEAH YEAH YEAHS in London on April 26th. Followed by a Nottingham show with Blank Dogs, Times New Viking, Shitty Limits and more.

See you in England.
