The Untitled Interview #184 - Hopscotch Edition: Starring Jeffrey Silverstein (Secret Mountains)

As y’all know, I had a rather enjoyable time down in Raleigh last year for my first ever Hopscotch, and it was so very good that I just had to go back again this year! The lineup looks frighteningly good, which means that yours truly will be making some seriously difficult decisions about how to spend her time. And of course, I had to get in touch with some folks that I was super excited about getting a chance to see in this installment of the festival. If you’ll be down for Hopscotch this year, make sure you keep these bands on your radar. And now, friends, let's get into it with this year's INTERVIEWSCOTCH!

There's really no better place to start than one of Baltimore's finest, Secret Mountains. The smoky, homespun psychsters are starting to cause a little bit of an attention ruckus, and I must say it's incredibly well-deserved (and about damn time). Mr. Jeffrey Silverstein took some time to answer all those burning festivalian questions, which you can check out below. And if you see him in Raleigh, odds are good he'll be accompanied by chicken on a stick. Stay tuned for more out of me about these folks in the future, too.
