Sounds of SXSW 2015 #20: Whiskey Shivers

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.

If ever there was a band to chug some moonshine to and do a lot of silly drunken Virginia Reeling to, it's Whiskey Shivers. Part bluegrass, part folk, and part straight up crazy party, these Austin transplants give twang a great name. And I have no doubt they put on a heck of a show.
