Sounds of SXSW 2015 #42: Summer Cannibals

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.

It's been a little bit of a long while since I last mentioned Summer Cannibals, and that's no bueno. The Portland outfit has expanded to a foursome, which only helps them more easily articulate their rough and rollicking, gritty and hellishly catchy rock noises. They've still got a few gigs down there in Austin, so if you're indulging in SXSW, why not indulge in a little Summer Cannibalism.
