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