Sounds of Hopscotch 2017 #15: Melkbelly

It's time once again to cast a longing glance down to Raleigh and the delectable Hopscotch. In my humble opinion, this is one of the best festivals around, and since 2010 it's been doing nothing but get bigger and better every year. Sadly, I won't be there this year, but I've pored over the lineup and have a handful of picks that I think you should pay close attention to.

From Chicago comes the ravenously riotous raging of Melkbelly. Their ferocity comes in spurts, after the onslaught of building waves of delightful discord, while at times they're taut and nervy with so much simmering just below the surface. Bottom line, this is a band that commands attention.

Melkbelly plays Slim's at 10:30 PM on 9/8.
