Sounds of Savannah Stopover 2016 #20: Ancient Warfare

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.

There's something about Ancient Warfare. Something about the Lexington-based outfit feels familiar, comforting almost. And yet there's that unexpected quality, as though you never quite know where their songs are going to take you. What you can expect are some gorgeous, smoky vocals and an instantly appealing psych folk sound. Very nice indeed.
