Sounds of SXSW 2015 #18: Daddy Long Legs

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.

I get the feeling that the gents of Daddy Long Legs wouldn't mind having been in a band in the 60s. Their sound is firmly rooted in the past, and they mine soul, British Invasion, and Detroit with aplomb, mixing it all together and conjuring one heck of a sound. It's not a stretch to imagine their live performances are pretty dang great.
