SXSW Interview with Albert Aguilar [VIDEO]
Albert Aguilar is a singer songwriter with some serious chops. Playing at a last minute venue change at Serranos on Symphony Square in Austin, he played a few songs from his album: Where To Go From Here as well as his upcoming EP, which will be released on April 22nd
Symphony Square is a really unique location, with amphitheater seating surrounding a stone stage. The setup actually helps with creating a great acoustic environment. The location was perfect for Albert’s music, adding to the intimacy of his performance.
Tracks from his album can be found at his MySpace page here: http://www.myspace.com/albertaguilarmusic
His songs are often cinematic and dreamy, in an elevated slow-motiony kind of way.
Specifically, if you ever find yourself in the back seat of a friends car, gazing out the window at strangers on the street, thinking about that certain someone (you know which one), playing his album might make a moment out of it.
Here’s Chloe interviewing Albert after the show.
