The final day of Primavera Sound kicked off in a dehydrated panic after realising we’d slept in. Ponytail are about to play a midday session in the Joan Miro Park, so we dive out of bed and into a taxi. Arriving a couple of songs in, the loveliness of the outdoor setting is very much […]

Primavera Sound 2009: Day 2

1 Comment 06 June 2009

Deerhunter Live @ Noise Pop 2009

No Comments 02 March 2009

This video from last week’s Noise Pop festival in San Francisco is one of the best recordings of Deerhunter that I’ve seen. It sees the band unleash more new material amid songs from Crytograms and Microcastle; all wrapped up in eerie echoes and murky vocal loops… Setlist: Intro (3 mins of Bradford vocal echoes) / […]
