Sounds of Hopscotch 2015 #5: Black Clouds

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.

It's always a treat to see some DC folks on festival bills, and this time it's the moody, expansive walls of noise made by Black Clouds that's heading to Raleigh to melt some faces. The trio's cavernous waves of towering sludge are sure to cause a stir. And that reminds me, it's time to buy earplugs.
