Sounds of SXSW 2015 #37: The Parrots

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.

Madrid (as in Spain) might not be the spot you immediately think of when conjuring up hotbeds of super fuzzed out, gritty garage hijinks. But that's the home of The Parrots, and they fit that bill and then some. Brash as can be, loud as you like, this trio is young but capable and they're already buzzing in Europe. Ladies and gents, these lads are worth a listen.
