Sounds Of Hopscotch 2013 #18: Body Games

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 something about the dudes that go it alone, musically-speaking. Take Triangle act Body Games, the outlet of Dax Beaton (no word on whether he's related to Cecil). Beaton brings his love of all things musical to his carefully composed songs, and tops them off with his chilly, tender vocals. From exuberant synthiness to more quiet moments, Beaton is definitely bringing something interesting to the table.
