Sounds of Hopscotch 2015 #3: Las Rosas

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 no question that the gents of Brooklyn's Las Rosas have a little bit of a soft spot for the music of the 1960s. Their own sound is very simpatico with the classics, with plenty of tight, kicky jangling and some almost Zombies vibes floating around. Naturally, I'm more than a little intrigued.
