Without a doubt, Treefort is at the top of my festival bucket list. This downtown Boise, ID festival once again features a lineup that is well and truly stacked from top to bottom, with the emphasis being on showcasing bands from the very, very fertile Western lands. After poring over this year's lineup, these are the bands I'm swooning over the hardest.
It's great to see a little DC on the Treefort lineup, and it's great that the captivating outfit Den-Mate will be part of that little DC conglomerate. At times playful, at others brooding and intense, the smoldering electro-infused slink can purr or scratch. Either way, it makes for rather daydreamy listening.
