Sounds Of SXSW #24: Low Times

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.

Y'all. We need to talk. Let's talk about Low Times. Low fucking Times. This devilishly good San Antonio trio hasn't been on my radar very long, but they are IT. Theirs is the sound of Texas as it ought to be; Dirty, grimy, beat up as hell, stumbling down, stinking drunk bluesy garage rock with spectres of psych floating around. I once heard a sportscaster use the phrase "filthy, filthy, nasty, filthy," and damned if it doesn't fit Low Times perfectly. Head over to their Soundcloud to hear tons of killer tracks. And get ready to hear me talk about them again.
