The Untitled Interview #155 – Hopscotch Edition: Starring Disappears

If there’s one thing I love, it’s going to a new festival for the first time. And this weekend yours truly shall be heading down to Raleigh for some serious festival goodness in the form of Hopscotch. With a varied, all sorts of awesome lineup, I have no doubt this weekend will be a hot diggity dog dandy. I tracked down some of the most interesting out-of-town prospects playing Hopscotch this year to get their collective take on the joy of fests.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am in love with Disappears. The Chicago noisesmiths make a pummeling, battering brand of rock, replete with a kicky swagger amidst all that droning and thrashing. I like to think of their music as a maelstrom of shoegaze and post-punk and late 60s Detroit. I'm a smidge obsessed with "Superstition," and those galavanting vocals with all the drone and guitars hellbent on making your eardrums bleed. It'sla glorious noise indeed. Read on for the Disappears festival scorecard.
