Sounds of Hopscotch 2015 #7: Wymyns Prysyn

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 a little bit (ok, a lot) of a rather anti-social snarl that emanates from the noise made by Atlanta's Wymyns Prysyn, and I kinda like it. Combative, moody, and surly, the band churns along in a dark cloud. I'd expect the live versions of a WP set are even more intense.
