Sounds of Treefort 2016 #5: Freak Heat Waves

The way things are going, I can't help but feel that I enjoy the smaller, more boutique festivals more than those bigger, big name events. One of the fests I have on my radar for getting to one of these days (hopefully) is Treefort, a five-day festival of multitudinous good times in scenic downtown Boise. Maybe one of the festival circuit's best-kept secrets for now, I'd imagine it's not long before the great state of Idaho is on many festival-goer's radars. I've been perusing the lineup of this year's installment and have plenty of great bands to bring to your attention.

Straight up Canadian Kraut weirdness, that's what you get with Victoria's Freak Heat Waves. Offkilter beats, flatly droll vocal delivery, and swirling synthiness make this outfit well worth your while.
