“There’s no room for irony in rock and roll — I wish someone had told that to the bands in Austin for South by Southwest last March. It was the last Saturday of the festival, and I was suffering through a set by some “side project” band on the back stage at the Hole in the Wall. When I finally got up to leave, I was completely bludgeoned by the band on the front stage by the door. They played their melancholic and poppy hooks heavy, loud, and sludgy. The drummer bashed his kit, and the bass had a punchy, clean tone usually reserved for pop-punk. The front man played fuzzed-out and distorted melodic lines and power chords as he sang his pleas of heartache straight and clean. I had discovered New Orleans’ Lovey Dovies, and they kept me glued in front of the stage for the rest of their set.”
