Sounds of SXSW 2015 #36: FOGG

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 tell you what, y'all. If it's mind-melting, heavy psych you're after, you might just want to look into FOGG. These Fort Worth fellows make music to lose your mind to, and then some. Their noise is loud, it's thick, it's very 70s revival...and it's pretty dang good. And I can't even imagine how epic they can be in person, so if you're in Austin, go check these dudes out.
