Sounds Of Hopscotch 2013 #14: Prypyat

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.

Their Bandcamp page promises to take you "to a world of free steaks and rainbows," but it's really even better than that. Prypyat, the darling pair comprised of Leah Gibson (Lost In the Trees/Bowerbirds) and Duncan Webster (Hammer No More the Fingers) is not only made up of two of my favorite North Carolinians, but is also a rather sweetly dynamic duo. Gentle, quirky folk suits them well, and suits me just fine too.
