Songs that build have become a lost art, which is why Deep Sea Diver caught our attention. And we have a keeper here.
The voice belongs to Jessica Dobson, who's played guitar in The Shins and for Beck. But here, Dobson is the main event, and she's earned it with "One By One" from Deep Sea Diver's new Always Waiting EP.
We've also been combing over the lineup this year, and now feel fully prepared to offer up our official Hopscotch track for 2014. See it below, and scroll all the way down for a little added bonus -- a handy Spotify playlist of most of the bands we'll be checking out.
Three day passes are almost gone, so if you're on the fence, listen below then get your tix!
In chronological order:
Toon and the Real Laww

Young Summer has been a favorite of ours since last year's "Fever Dream," and with yesterday's release of her full-length, Siren, she's stuck in our heads once again. There are many tracks that provide immediate satisfaction, like "Striking Distance" and "Taken," but our favorite is today's Jam of the Day, "Leave Your Love." Have a listen below, and purchase Siren here.
