Sounds of SXSW 2015 #12: Black Linen

It's getting to be that time of year again, y'all. That time in March when spring is tantalizingly close, and when bands from just about every corner of the earth (and the music press who loves them) gathers in Austin for SXSW. I know some folks think it's just a big industry schmooze-fest, but I still get a thrill out of checking out the (massive) list of bands and finding someone new to fall in smit with. The bands I'm profiling this year are bands that I would definitely seek out were I going to SXSW this year. If you're going to Austin, or even if you're not, give them a listen.

Listening to Atlanta's Black Linen is little bit like being transported to a parallel universe and into some kind of funky 60s backlot party in a desert thrown by Ennio Morricone with backing by Sam the Sham's band The Pharaohs and saturated with acid bright colors. In other words, it's a pretty rad party.
