Each March, a host of bands from around the world descend upon Austin, Texas, for South by Southwest (SXSW), an event that provides up-and-coming bands a chance to showcase their music for music fans and industry figures. Fortunately for Mobile, some of these bands make a pit stop here en route to SXSW.
Alabama rockers Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires will be stopping in Mobile on their way to Austin. Bains’ time with The Dexateens helped build a musical legacy that has grown even stronger with his Glory Fires project.
Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires have joined the ranks of the legendary Sub Pop label. The “Sweet Disorder” 7-inch, their latest effort on Sub Pop, is a double shot of Bains’ homegrown sounds. The title track offers a fuzzy blast of the group’s rootsy garage rock. “Stars” follows with its ethereal ambience that provides both contrast and balance to the record’s A side.
