Sounds of Secret Stages 2016 #8: Hello Ocho

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.

If it's acid jazz meets Kraut sounds meets wacky psych jams you're after, Hello Ocho might be up your street. These Atlanta space cadets revel in the weird, and their unconventional sonic ramblings will sound so very good to any ear with an appreciation of the non-conformist noise. I can only imagine what kind of wonderful mess they make when they get up on a stage.
