Sounds of Savannah Stopover 2016 #14: New Madrid

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.

From Athens to Savannah goes New Madrid, a four-headed monster that is sure to ensnare many unsuspecting ears with their potent swamp psych-coated noise concoctions. They can kick out some serious quietude, too, it's not all raucousness. I have no doubt they put on a heck of a show, y'all, so if you're heading to the Stopover don't miss these dudes.
