Sounds of Hopscotch #4: Doldrums

Hopscotch is a long weekend-long festivus of musical goodness, and the closer it gets the more excited I get about it. The lineup is so good that I won't be able to see all of the wondrous bands I'd like to, dangit. Sounds of Hopscotch shares the bands that I've got my eye on, and that regardless of whether or not you'll be in Raleigh for the fest, you really ought to get to know as well.

O, Canada. I don't know how you do it, but your music scene is often pretty rad. As in the case of the definitely misleadingly-named Doldrums, the one-man project of Airick Woodhead. There is nothing dull, boring, lifeless, or any other such adjective that remotely fits in with Woodhead's Doldrums tracks. They are spooky and slinky and suggestive, and I all sorts of like it. Edgily ethereal, Doldrums conjures up all sorts of interesting places, and I imagine the live experience might just be pretty intense.
