Sounds Of Hopscotch 2013 #17: The Kingsbury Manx

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 pretty sure we can go ahead and call Chapel Hill tunesmiths The Kingsbury Manx a fixture of the Triangle scene. After all, they've been making their delightfully offbeat, Americana-slanted indie rock for years now, and haven't lost a step. When it comes to Hopscotch, they're some serious local heroes. It's next to impossible not to like these dudes, and they also happen to be pretty darn good live (and on record - buy their new one!!). But don't just take my word for it.
