Sounds of SXSW 2015 #27: Fatherson

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.

To be honest, I'm a little miffed that Fatherson is going from a show in NYC straight down to Austin, but I'll forgive them. The Glasgow trio has been getting a fair bit of attention at home, and are bringing their big, earnest rock clatter to our shores. Listening to them, it makes perfect sense to know that they've toured with countrymen Frightened Rabbit and Idlewild (among plenty of others). Well done, lads.
