Sounds Of Hopscotch 2013 #2: Water Liars

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.

There's a sort of reverie to be had in the music of Water Liars. Beautiful, hazy, and humid, the duo currently based in Oxford, Mississippi draws from folk, traditional, good old rock and roll, and even spiritual elements in their songs, resulting in a tender frankness and acceptance of the way things really are. Utterly addictive, I declare them a must-see for any Hopscotch-goer.
