Sounds of Hopscotch 2015 #11: Echo Courts

It's that time, y'all. Hopscotch time. Despite being a relative new kid on the festival block, with every year the Raleigh festivus gets bigger and harder to ignore. And I'm delighted to report that after a brief hiatus, your intrepid hostess will be venturing down I-85 to check out this year's impressive musical offerings. The only bummer is that I can't see every band the festival has to offer. These are my Hopscotch picks, imperative listening whether you're going to be in Raleigh this coming weekend or not.

A little jangle and a little fuzz, y'all, that's sometimes all it takes to make me happy. Echo Courts, of Greensboro, NC, has plenty of both. They definitely give the impression that their live shows are a mighty good time, so easy is it to get into their sing-along choruses and general scuzz pop likability.
