Sounds Of Hopscotch 2013 #10: Waxahatchee

Hard as it may be to believe, it's once again time for Hopscotch. One of my favorite festival happenings, Hopscotch is a mere hop, skip, and a jump or two from the DC metro in lovely Raleigh, North Carolina. For the past few years they've been reeling in some seriously impressive lineups, and this year looks to be no different. Thanks to scheduling conflicts, I won't be heading down for this year's sonic extravaganza, but (not at all surprisingly) I've got recommendations on who to check out if you're heading to the fest.

Sure, I'm quite content to be a music scribe. But there's a part of me, deep down in there, that wishes I could rock the fuck out with a guitar. Waxahatchee, as it happens, lives that dream for me. Miss Katie Crutchfield pulled up stakes from Alabama, moved to Brooklyn, and proceeded to be badass. While definitely not new on the scene, Waxahatchee is relatively new to me. From what I've heard, Waxahatchee keeps the aim true to her punk roots while sashaying around melody and extreme likeability like nobody's business. Oh, and this girl can absolutely wail with her guitar, too. I'm sold.
