Sounds Of SXSW #22: FIDLAR

SXSW is upon us once again, my friends, and sadly, for mostly work-related reasons, I won't be there (alas, alack, etc etc). However, there are plenty of good bands that will be in Austin, and I'm going to post little somethin-somethins for y'all to enjoy, whether you're headed down to Texas or not.

Holy hot damn six-barrel hellfire. I don't know what I've been doing with myself, but until I heard the glory of FIDLAR I sure as hell was doing something wrong, y'all. Learn from my mistake. "No Ass" is raunchily rowdy, a wee bit punkish, and also a smidge reminiscent of the high-energy thrashing, (mostly) concise jams of certain Brit bands like The Buzzcocks, minus a little of the structure. It snarls, reeks of way too much partying, and good luck trying to resist it. In short, this song fucking rules.
