SXSW Song Of The Day: Lift To Experience – Just As Was Told

Denton, Texas-based band Lift To Experience has had a bit of an interesting history. After playing the 2000 edition of SXSW, the trio signed to London-based label Bella Union and went on to release only one album. That album, 2001’s The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads, would go on to attain a certain cult status, although the band seems to have gained more of a following in the UK than they ever did stateside.

Now, all these years later, the band is back with a reissued, remastered version of the album and playing a couple of shows for SXSW 2017, including one in a church, which seems somewhat fitting for a band that made a post-rock/shoegaze concept album about the second coming of Jesus Christ in Texas.

Check out “Just As Was Told,” the Slint-esque opening track from that album below:
