Sounds of SXSW 2015 #3: The Zoltars

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.

Austinites The Zoltars have the fuzzy garage thing down pretty well. It's the kind of sound you might throw on and initially wonder what under-the-radar 60s band you'd stumbled across. It's also the kind of sound that probably sounds mighty fine up close and personal.
