Sounds of Hopscotch 2015 #6: Flock of Dimes

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.

I'm a big advocate for side projects, especially when they're as divine as Flock of Dimes, the solo endeavor of Wye Oak's Jenn Wasner. Shimmering synthy textures undulate behind Wasner's lush velvet vocals, leaving a rather decadent feeling behind.
