Sounds Of Hopscotch 2013 #20: Black Zinfandel

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 tend to like bands with the word "Black" in the title, and Black Zinfandel doesn't stray from this truism. The Raleigh-based trio tends to blast their way through songs, merging punkish attitude with something a bit more psychedelic in practice. Whatever they're doing, it works. It's loud, and I like it.
