Another dispatch from the Burmese music scene.

This one on rad rockers Side Effect, a band based in Yangon. They’ve been in the news a bit lately because they lost a few thousand dollars after the website they used to raise the money, IndieGoGo, decided that handing the cash over might put them on the wrong side of U.S. sanctions against Burma.

But mostly the story was fun because these guys rock. Check out their SoundCloud page, follow them on Twitter, etc. Thanks to Becky Palmstrom for recording the Yangon end of the interview.
