Sounds of SXSW 2015 #19: Crosss

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.

Crosss has declared their music to be psychedelic metal and futuristic grunge. No arguments from this corner, as those are actually both pretty accurate. Whatever you're inclined to call it, these Canadian sonic shamans create dark, sludgy incantations sure to appeal to my fellow psych lovers.
