Sounds of SXSW 2015 #39: Pinecones

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.

Georgia is just one of those places, and Pinecones is just one of those Georgia bands. Which already means they're pretty alright. Pinecones takes some of the more traditional Southern rock sound and throws in a few decibels, featuring loud guitar riffage and wonderfully shouty vocals. Probably pretty killer live, I suspect.
