Sounds Of Secret Stages 2018: Telefones

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.

Y'all know I like good old fashioned noise. With Nashville's Telefones, there's a whole lotta noise - with a wicked smirk to boot. They kinda look and kinda sound like they were sent straight from the beating heart of the 70s, able to do both wiry, skittering jangle or expansive, kaleidoscopic universes with dextrous skill. Every song has its own personality, and I can only imagine the things they can do when they're plugged in and on stage.
