Sounds of Secret Stages 2017 #16: Swarming Branch

Alabama in August is a pretty hot place, and it's not just because of the heat (and the humidity). Secret Stages has been keeping things hot in Birmingham for years, staying true to their mission of showcasing musical talent from across the South (and beyond). This year is no different. If you're free August 4-5, you might just take a jaunt down to Bham to check out this Dixie dandy.

If it's off kilter, quirky vintage pop you're looking for, look no further than Swarming Branch. Their far out, glammed-up folk is more than a little on the theatrical side, and there's no way to accuse this band of being shy, retiring violets. There's a lot going on in their songs, and it's all rather transfixing and rather wonderful.
