Sounds of Secret Stages 2016 #17: Nest Egg

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.

Smoky Mountain high, Carolina. Asheville's Nest Egg might just make your mind melt, y'all. With a wall of sound that's thick as mud, vocals swirling like mist through the mountainside all around you, and a devilish dirge of a rhythm section, this is some serious psych noise. And they can thrash, to boot. Surely not to be missed up close and in person.
