Sounds Of Secret Stages 2018: The Lees Of Memory

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 once again, 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.

The Lees Of Memory has a serious rock pedigree, having been formed by a couple former Superdrag-ers (John Davis and Brandon Fisher). The Lees makes some pretty far out psych rock, tempered by some irresistible pop (as you might expect) and a hearty dose of fuzz and some mighty harmonies. Basically, this band has their cake and eats it, too.
