Sounds Of Hopscotch 2013 #7: Ex Cops

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.

I'm seriously crazy for Ex Cops. Their deliriously perfect, shimmery pop gems call to mind endless remembrances and touchstones, referential yet gloriously unique. Little surfer girls should especially dig "Spring Break Birthday Song," while something about the droll rhythms of "Seperator" makes me think of The Magnetic Fields. They're sweet as pie, these Brooklyners, and I suspect they put on a mighty fine show together.
