Sounds of SXSW 2015 #29: Royal Teeth

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 was intrigued, looking at Royal Teeth's SXSW info page, when I saw that the only thing under their bio was the following statement: "Royal Teeth makes music for adventures." My interest piqued, I gave "Wild" a listen, and can confirm that song definitely is adventure-ready. Glossy and uplifting, the songs made by this Big Easy band offer up a joie de vivre and an infectiousness that's undeniable.
