Sounds of SXSW 2015 #26: Low Cut Connie

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 like a good backstory, and it just so happens that Low Cut Connie's got a pretty good one. Founding members that decide to form a band whilst stuck in an elevator for hours? Not bad. Purveyors of "rock and roll played for your loving consumption," these gents worship at the altar of rock's founding fathers. Adding their own special breed of scuzz and grit, Low Cut Connie can definitely show a gal a heck of a good time.
