  1. They're still making preparations for EOTR 2020. You can only hope.
  2. Sign up The Vaccines, they'd be good 😉
  3. I felt the same way about The Horrors after they pulled out. When they eventually played the Woods stage (2014) I was happy to write them off as "average". They have made some innovative records later in their career, I grudgingly admit. I'm also yet to quite forgive Dengue Fever for a similar act of treason.
  4. Disq's debut album "Collector" is really good. I'm looking forward to seeing them. Young indie rockers with some great musical chops and plenty of variety.
  5. Her previous work is great too. She's got a stunning voice.
  6. On the same weekend as EOTR. We might get some additions from his lineup, although other than Gruff Rhys I think we already have the ones I'd want. IF we're allowed to gather together in a field by then.
  7. Yes please... Throwing Muses Announce New Album, Drop ‘Dark Blue’
  8. I went to see Damien Jurado in Bristol last night (partly to make up for not seeing him at EOTR 2018 , where he was replaced by the Wave Pictures due to illness). He was in solo singer-songwriter mode last night, just him and an electric acoustic guitar, but very enjoyable. The support act was Dana Gavanski, who I later found out will be playing EOTR 2020. I heard elements of Cate Le Bon, American folk and even Lola vs. Powerman era Kinks in her sound. She was good, definitely worth checking out, and I could see her working well in either the Tipi tent or early afternoon on the Garden stage.
  9. I was there too. She was stunning and so was her band. Very much in moody arty character of the new album for the first half of last night's gig - dramatic and cinematic sounds that will be a perfect fit for the Woods stage. About halfway through, once her mug of whisky kicked in, the older songs came out, the lighting went up a notch and we saw a more intimate and light-hearted approach.
  10. "Half as large again" = 50% bigger than EOTR.
  11. Obviously a great first announcement, as seems to be agreed everywhere. I'm just amazed at the overlap of artists with Sea Change Festival (Totnes, 22-24 May) - Field Music, Katy J Pearson, Vanishing Twin, Squid, Dry Cleaning. Never mind, I don't mind seeing that lot twice.
  12. There is some lovely woodland, containing walking paths, art installations, games to play, a library, speaker stages and even a late night disco, but it is also possible to completely avoid it and still have a great time.
  13. That Alexandra Savior album really is great. I hear a bit of Bat for Lashes, Lana del Rey and Mattiel in there.
  14. I'm not a massive fan of Alabama Shakes but their Woods stage set in 2012 totally blew me away for the amount of musical talent on display and the way Brittany Howard had the audience in the palm of her hand. One of those times when I just had to put aside my musical preferences and say "wow". Probably one of the highlights of 10+ years at EOTR for me. Real Estate were good, if not stunning, when they played the Woods Stage.
  15. I was so disappointed when Tame Impala played EOTR. I really wanted to see them back then but they didn't play a single one of their early more psychedelic rock tracks from the first few EPs and album. And I haven't liked anything they've done since. Hey ho.
