Sounds of Hopscotch 2015 #20: King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard

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.

So this one's obviously coming after the fact, but having seen this band of wonderful kooks live last weekend in a sweaty, loud, frenzied show, I can heartily and unreservedly recommend to you the live performance of Aussies King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. Raucous psych infused with all sorts of intense energy make these Down Under dudes a must-see.
