MG&V: Dawes, Delta Spirit and Deer Tick frontmen form "supergroup"

MG&V: McCauley, Goldsmith & Vasquez

A bit late to the party on this, but when the frontmen of three of my favorite bands form a new band, I can't help but make note of it.  For those that haven't heard, Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Matt Vasquez (Delta Spirit) and John McCauley (Deer Tick) are playing SXSW together under the "MG&V" moniker (McCauley Goldsmith & Vasquez).  Apparently there is an album forthcoming too.  Check out more details on brooklyn vegan

With three guitarists and a penchant for harmonies, I'm not sure if I should expect something CSN-like...or rough-around-the-edges country-rock like each's regular band.  In my musical world this constitutes a supergroup - but not sure these dudes carry the clout (yet) for that term.  Either way I can't wait to hear the results.   And this is one more reason to kick myself about not being at SXSW
