Sounds of SXSW 2015 #28: The Rich Hands

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.

The three fellas in The Rich Hands cite 50s and 60s sounds (rock and roll and pop, respectively) as influences, and you can definitely hear both pulsing through their energetic, slightly scuzzy rambunctiousness. The San Antonio lads have an easy appeal, and their salty sweet sound is sure to win folks over down Austin way.
