Sounds of Savannah Stopover 2016 #21: Expert Alterations

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.

I'm not sure why I'm only just learning of Expert Alterations, but I guess it's better late than never. Shame on y'all for not telling me about these dudes. This Baltimore trio hits a very sweet spot indeed, sounding more than a little like the lovable 80s bands out of the UK and New Zealand who indulged in some infectious jangly noise while at the same time sounding so very now. Don't count on this being the last time I gush about these gents.
