    Some might call Van Pierszalowski nautically inclined. His projects -- first Port O'Brien, and now WATERS -- always seem interested in the wide, expansive sea. Out In The Light finds Pierszalowski exploring a more explosive sound, generally infusing more of his patented sea-hooks with gritty electricity. From the heart-crushing sentiments of "Abridge My Love" to the frenetic acceleration of hopeful "For The One," WATERS represents as much of a personal rebirth for the singer as an artistic one. And never is the authentic emotional crest more evident than in our captured SXSW set. Van's captivating enthusiasm on stage can leave no trace of doubt about the deep, potent connection he has with these songs. They are mini-hurricanes of emotional ecstasy, jostling between turmoil and triumph like the ebb and flow of the chilly Arctic Sea. And yet, somehow, you come out the other end of the storm feeling warmer and stronger than ever before. Watch the full concert, and see what we mean.
