Sounds of Savannah Stopover 2016 #17: Washer

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.

Fresh off releasing their debut record with Exploding in Sound, Brooklyn's Washer is joining the excellent crop of bands convening in Savannah in the very near future. The duo's noise is wonderfully lo-fi and sludgy, equally at home in a DIY house show or onstage at established venues. Highly recommended.
