Sounds of Hopscotch 2015 #8: Booher

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.

The name comes from main man Michael Booher, and the sound comes from Austin, TX. Booher fills their collective boots well, strolling through Americana loved up on some warm, golden AM radio energy. The music is lively, unapologetically so, and definitely warrants further investigation.
