No matter how many parties and showcases I tried to squeeze in last week at SxSW, I still managed to miss a band I heard a ton of awesome things about: Portland's Red Fang. These guys sound like the missing link between The Melvins and Queens of the Stone Age, with a laconic Sword influence thrown in. I haven't been able to stop listening to their self-titled debut all goddamn weekend.
Here's a video for Red Fang's "Prehistoric Dog."
...And a bonus video of them performing "Sharks" in Austin.
Just shut up and listen.
