Sounds Of Hopscotch 2013 #15: Golden Void

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 don't ask for much. My needs are few, really. Just give me some good psych rock and I'm a happy girl. It took about five seconds of listening to San Francisco's Golden Void for me to be very, very happy. Theirs is psych of the late 60s careening into the 70s, heavy and wailing and trippy. Nothing would really suggest that they're not 70s escapees somehow plopped down in the middle of right now. And right now is where they should be. Hot damn.
