Sounds Of Secret Stages 2018: Dogwood Lung

While I may not be there in body, my mind and heart will be away down south in Dixie this weekend. Why, you may ask? Well, it's Secret Stages, y'all! August 3-4 sees this boutique festival take over Birmingham, bringing together sounds from all ends of the spectrum. If you're in the vicinity, you should absolutely stop what you're doing and go see some folks do their thing. I've put together a shortlist of some artists I'd make time for if I was at the festival, and I hope you'll check them out regardless of whether you're in Alabama this weekend or not.

As a UA graduate, I'm not allowed to like much about Auburn. But the city of Auburn is home to a band called Dogwood Lung, and they're worth stepping across enemy lines for. Tender yet with a kick, this "alternative dream pop" outfit's alchemy stems from poignant, magnetic vocals and swirls of noise that might just give you goosebumps.
