Sounds Of Hopscotch 2013 #21: Ex-Cult

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 a whole lot of rock'n'roll in engrained in the history of Memphis, so it's not a surprise to come across a band that brings the rock like Ex-Cult does. Sparse, live wire songs and growly, couldn't-give-a-fuck vocals highlight the band's sound, and as far as I'm concerned it's impossible not to dig it. Definitely a band I'd love to see do their thing live.
