Sounds of Savannah Stopover 2016 #11: Wild Powwers

A funny thing has been happening on the way to SXSW, y'all. A whole lot of bands have been making a pitstop in Savannah, Georgia, on their way to the musical motherland of Austin. And the city best known for its history is making waves with this here shindig known as the Savannah Stopover, about to enjoy its sixth iteration. My head has been turned enough to give y'all some recommendations from said Stopover for your listening pleasure. And if you happen to be free from March 10-12, maybe you ought to just venture on down to Savannah for yourself.

Sweet mercy, y'all. That's pretty much all I have to say right about now. But I'll try to do a little better. It's just that Wild Powwers has pretty much knocked me senseless. Powerful, Valkyrie vocals against an endless barrage of noise that caresses while it bruises, this Seattle outfit is laying their collective cards on the table. And my oh my what a winning hand it is. I do believe this band is something pretty special, but don't just take my word for it.
