You get 10 bands and 10 bands only

Recommended Posts

Waxahatchee's new album mean's she's replaced Perfume Genius on my ten 'must-sees'.  Found it really difficult to narrow down to ten though. 

Bill Callahan
Courtney Marie Andrews
Daniel Romano
Waxahatchee
Japandroids
Aaron Lee Tasjan
Lemon Twigs
Father John Misty
Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
Shovels and Rope

The Friday from about 3pm is pretty light for me.  Any recommendations?

I can picture myself nursing a hangover and lying on the grass listening to him

Jens Lekman

Hogni

Aldous Harding

Bill Callahan

Perfume Genius

Let's Eat Grandma

Douglas Dare

Penguin Cafe

Amanda Bergman

Timber Timbre

 

Would be my top ten. 

I've seen Jens ten times so far and will also see him in the week before eotr, and it's still not enough.

I was extremely happy to find out that Hogni is the lead singer of an Icelandic band that I love to pieces, called Hjaltalin, so I'll definitely be watching him.

Aldous Harding I've seen a few times, and she's extremely good live.

Perfume Genius I've also seen a few times, and Let's Eat Grandma once.

The other bands/acts will be my first time of seeing them.

Watched FJM's set at Glastonbury on TV and was totally blown away, so he now edges out Ty Segall. Mdou Moctar unfortunately loses out due to clashes.

Really want to see Perfume Genius again, but fear we will have to bail by then, 1st day at school for sprogs in the morning. so happy bands are on Thursday to get an extra music evening out of it.

There's a couple of new songs from Alex Cameron doing the rounds, one with Angel Olsen, that are quite brilliant. He may be creeping onto my list.

I was bored silly watching Car Seat Headrest 2 years back but reviews suggest they are a good live act. Maybe they've upped their game or maybe I just need to give them another chance.

I really don't understand the hype surrounding Car Seat Headrest. Listening to Teens of Denial I can't help but think it's all been done a million times before. Some of those songs are much much longer than they need to be as well.

I love the Car Seat album and saw them in Porto last year. I think they were good live but you got to remember that he has only recently worked with a band as his first albums were made on his computer

They good a Primavera and great the week latter at Beaches Brew in Italy. I think the album is fab. Could be another Ought moment in the Garden. 

(But then it's basically one guy and a pick up backing band so if they've changed personel to session type musos then it might be poor).
