Sounds of SXSW 2015 #2: Avers

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.

Y'all know that Richmond holds a pretty special place in my heart for a whole mess of reasons, not least of which among them is due to how much musical talent lives in that city. Avers is one of the shining lights in RVA these days, all psychedelic smokiness and subtle, serpentine grooves for days. Definitely a cut above.
