Sounds of Macrock 2014 #3: My Darling Fury

A wonderful thing happens every year in the beauteous mountains of Western Virginia. For one weekend in early April, the city of Harrisonburg is the epicenter of a dynamite little festival, the Mid Atlantic College Radio Conference, otherwise known as Macrock. I’ve been to a couple of these events, and have had a brilliant time taking in the bands and breathing the beautiful mountain air. Alas and alack, I won’t be in Harrisonburg this weekend for this year’s Macrock, but that doesn’t mean I’m not paying attention to who’s going to be playing. I’ve made a list of bands I think worthy of your time, whether you’re heading to the mountains or not.

There's something I like so very much about My Darling Fury. They've got a lovely, pastoral quality to their songs, but don't make it overly sweet or lay it on too thick. The Richmond collective keeps it pretty, but without being too twee. A great listen live, I would imagine.
