Sounds of Hopscotch 2015 #12: Advaeta

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.

Like the Furies calling forth a vengeful tempest, Advaeta storms and shreds and wails enough to blow the house down. But they do it all with a honeyed coo, so sweet and so pretty that it's hard not to relish all that pummeling clamor. A rather smoldering, impassioned noise, and noise that I'm looking forward to hearing more of.
