Sounds of Secret Stages 2016 #14: Thayer Sarrano

It's sweltering out there, which can only mean it's getting to be about time for the 2016 installment of Alabama's awesome little music festival, Secret Stages. In a mere few days, a bunch of great local/regional/further afield bands will descend on Birmingham for what promises to be a heck of a good time. (Once again) I won't be there, dangit, but here's who I think is really worth checking out from the excellent lineup.

Hearing Thayer Sarrano, I'm instantly reminded of Hope Sandoval and that haunted, gorgeous voice. Cut through with longing and sadness, Sarrano's songs are a vision in ghostly dreampop, dark folk songs filled with shadows and memories.
