Sounds of Savannah Stopover 2016 #13: Wildhoney

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.

You'd be forgiven for thinking Wildhoney was from UK shores, and not from Baltimore. After all, their washes of undulating fuzzgaze, dream pop verve, and heavenly vocals don't immediately call to mind our neighbors to the immediate North (though the same can actually be said for several of my current favorite bands). Bottom line is, geographical surprises aside, there's an instant appeal to this lot, and an infatuation that will more than likely grow with number of listens.
