Sounds of Savannah Stopover 2016 #23: Mothers

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.

Holy hell, y'all. If you haven't yet heard of Mothers, I don't expect that to be the case for much longer. Started by Athens artiste Kristine Leschper, Mothers is now a band at full strength imparting some majorly impressive noise. Delightful sonic textures build and weave themselves through Leschper's haunting, passionate vocals, a result which will undoubtedly leave you wanting more.
