Sounds of SXSW 2015 #30: The Ghost Wolves

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.

Y'all know I like it when a band creates their own genre, and Austin's very own The Ghost Wolves have done just that. Their muddy, moon-howling comic book gritty rock is known as stomp'n'roll, and that works for me. This duo makes a whole lot of racket, and I like it.
