Sounds Of O+ Festival 2013 #4: Coke Weed

Y'all know I love a festival. Being around well-curated music for days at a time is nigh on heavenly to me. But sometimes, festivals can go above and beyond even that personal experience and not only provide miles and miles of glorious music and art, but a worthwhile cause to boot. Witness the O+ Festival, held this coming weekend in scenic Kingston, NY (with Left Coast activities too). O+ not only brings together some seriously great bands but seeks to provide health services for musicians. It's a darned noble cause, worthy of much attention and heaps of praise. I'm highlighting a selection of bands on this year's O+ roster that definitely merit a closer look.

Hot damn, y'all. Hot. Damn. I don't where Coke Weed has been hiding (the answer is Bar Harbor, Maine), but I sure am glad O+ brought them into my life. Definitely in with the psych crowd, these Maine folks at times bring a little grungy sunshine scuzzy fuzz to their breed of psych rock, at others going hazy folk sludge. I all sorts of love it. This definitely will not be the last you hear me foam at the mouth about this band.
