Sounds of Hopscotch 2015 #14: Leapling

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.

There's something just a little off about Leapling. And I mean that in the best way possible. The way a multitude of free flowing musical idiosyncrasies permeate their delightful songs is incredibly engaging, making this Brooklyn crew a little bit nerdy but a whole lot rock and roll. In their own special way.
