Sounds of Treefort 2016 #1: The Hound Mystic

The way things are going, I can't help but feel that I enjoy the smaller, more boutique festivals more than those bigger, big name events. One of the fests I have on my radar for getting to one of these days (hopefully) is Treefort, a five-day festival of multitudinous good times in scenic downtown Boise. Maybe one of the festival circuit's best-kept secrets for now, I'd imagine it's not long before the great state of Idaho is on many festival-goer's radars. I've been perusing the lineup of this year's installment and have plenty of great bands to bring to your attention.

It's not hard to imagine music like The Hound Mystic's coming out of Salt Lake City. All those mountains and that blue, blue sky are surely inspiring of many a lucid dream, and this spellbinding, earthy psych sprawl must sound right at home. I have no doubt the live experience is on the transcendent side.
