Yet another music blog, blah blah blah The Hearing Aid. Looking for a Goodnight Lenin out? This is what we're like B-side Brum song listing P and Dav Mostly Jazz Da Pages Home All the bands I have ever seen Cool music, lovely people, real ale, steam trains, sun Yes, yes it would. Teen Canteen opened the whole shebang, relocating the sound of classic 60s girl bands to 21 st century Glasgow.
Loved those sparkly hot pants too. Beans it is then. Next up The Chills who, inc redibly, are nudging close to their 35 th anniversary. Phew, what a scorcher. The Church Stage was jam packed for Elopes, in fact it actually seemed hot enough to actually make jam in there so we stood outside to listen.
Gender politics pop is that a genre Does humour belong in music? Behind the humour and some of his stuff is ruddy funny the dude speaks a huge amount of sense, and you can see where the comparisons to Billy Bragg albeit a Billy Bragg on happy pills come from.
Their soaringly super falsetto-ly fantastic Spooky Love headed straight into my top five Indietracks moments. Not many things would draw me to a packed out tin chapel on the hottest day of the year but then again not many artists are like multi-instrumentalist Laura J Martin who loops flute, mandolin, xylophone and a weird plucky thing to create a Japanese flavoured fairy tale world of wonder.
If Studio Ghibli hooked up with Kate Bush this is what it would sound like. It was the more low key revenge anthem Hopelessly Devoted To You that stole the show though, cramming in the kind of plotline that would keep Eastenders going for a year in just over 60 seconds. Horrible clash time The Spook School and Joanna Gruesome overlapped.
On top of a fine line in Hey Sailor Buoy! - Various - Indietracks Compilation 2014 style indie punk The Spook School have something of a secret weapon in their moustachioed drummer, one of the chattiest and most hilarious men in indiedom. All too soon Joanna Gruesome Hit 38 - Gallio / Streuli - Hits / Stills calling though.
Good grief. Tempus fugit eh? That just left Gruff Rhys to deliver a typically original set, this time in support of current project American Interior, an album, book, film and app Hey Sailor Buoy!
- Various - Indietracks Compilation 2014 a distant relative, John Evans, who left Wales for the US way back in searching for a lost tribe of Welsh speaking Native Americans believed to be descended from Prince Madog. Got that? It was all charmingly ramshackle in that unique way that Gruff has whilst at the same time telling a pretty incredible story. Would you have fancied travelling to the mysterious and often downright dangerous US back in the 18 th century?
No Virgin Atlantic or high speed railway lines in those days, just rickety old boats and your own two feet. Inspiring stuff. Another non American Interiors track also made it into the set, Sensations In The Dark which, although missing the full on mariachi brass, was still a treat.
Day Three and for anyone suffering Cheddar Valley related hangovers ouch Spanish three piece Axolotes Mexicanos I Dont Care - Marcia Griffiths - Put A Little Love In Your Heart manna from heaven.
How sweet is their lead singer Olaya? The sweetness masks an edgier side to the band though with tracks like Abortion which Olaya dedicated to her brother Indiest band of the weekend. The only thing that could draw me away was the prospect of seeing Ravioli Me Away but they failed to show up for some reason. Hey Sailor Buoy! - Various - Indietracks Compilation 2014 Ah, it seems they got lost on the way and missed their slot.
Shame, maybe next year then? Bordeauxxx bought all the joy of Los Campesinos to Indietracks, which is pretty high praise in my books. Kneeling on the floor with her xylophone Liz sang songs about boys at least most of them seemed to be about boys as we gently chuffed through the Derbyshire countryside. Lovely stuff. Damn those timings! Outside again and The Flatmates, part of the original indiepop scene back in the 80s, mashed up The Clash, Undertones and The Ramones to produce a set that well and truly gave the young 'uns okay, so maybe half the band are young 'uns but still a run for their money with the insanely catchy Do The Angels Care.
By now the clock was ticking Allegro Moderato - Händel*, Albrechtsberger*, Mozart* – Nicanor Zabaleta - Harfenkonzerte, like a kid oh alright then, middle aged chap in an indie pop sweet shop, I was trying manically to scoff as many bands as possible.
With all this ringing in our ears it was back up to the Church Stage for Mega Emotions who unexpectedly delivered one of the best performances of the whole weekend.

Hearing Aid favourites Goodnight Lenin play the Hare and Hounds on Friday 1 st August with fine support from MidnightBonfires as anticipation for their long awaited debut album builds.
Good things come to those who wait though eh? The night's also a bit of a warm up for Moseley Folk Festival which has one of the strongest line up's ever. Cop a load of this lot!
Posted by The Baron at am No comments:. Wow, according to Wikipedia so Hey Sailor Buoy! - Various - Indietracks Compilation 2014 must be true That was then, but this is now. If not Tonight was the last date in their brief UK tour and, unusually for the Symphony Hall crowd, from the moment they came onstage, pretty much everyone was on their feet.
Oh the shame of it. That choppy guitar riff and sultry sax still sounds cool. The chiming Out Of Touch was followed by a rifftastic and hard rocking Family Man with the first of many impressive guitar solos from various members of the band and, taking things all the way back to the start, the Bee Gees meets Springsteen of Back Together Again. It still sounds remarkably fresh, possibly thanks to the revitalising influence of the aforementioned Hey Sailor Buoy!
- Various - Indietracks Compilation 2014 and Chromeo, and tonight the band make the most of it with De Chant blowing up a storm on the sax and various guitar solos extending the thing way, way beyond its allotted 4 minutes or so. No complaints here. Highlight of the night. Posted by The Baron at pm No comments:. Tuesday, July 22, Indietracks Compilation Hailed as a genius in the making Hey Sailor Buoy! - Various - Indietracks Compilation 2014 his track Dear Lincoln and its accompanying album Bowler Hat Soup was released last year the then 17 year old Kieran Leonard was even touted as a spiritual heir to the relentlessly inventive Frank Zappa.
Le Retour Du Mari - Iawa - Bora - Amazone - Indiens Iawa up though, and rather brilliantly mis-billed as Top Peel on a sign downstairs directing gig goers to the right room, Mr TomPeel. Quite how he manages to do all this whilst still carrying a tune and dancing around without rupturing himself is, quite frankly, one of the wonders of our time.
Endlessly entertaining no matter how often you witness it tonight he really was on Tom Next up, The Shalfontsfronted by the exotically accented well Norwegian sounds pretty Katy Perry Feat.
Migos - Bon Appétit (Amir Afargan Remix) (File) compared with Castle Bromwich Bryn Bowen. It sounds even nuttier than that in reality, the sort of thing that Beck may have come up with during an acid trip party with Arial Pink. One for the beard strokers, head bangers and prog munchers to unite over.
Where does he go from here? Anywhere he damn well likes. The Grandsons of Invention anyone? Thursday, July 17, This is what we're like B-side Brum song listing revealed.
