Lowlands Notebooks – Saturday etc

50 Jaar Nederpop (Dutch pop retrospective, see here):

bim bam bom, House For Saaaaaaaaaaaale, Heideroosjes singer, fullest main stage ever, loads of fun

Los Campesinos:

Pete Dohertwee – nothing there – no gap between fun and good music

British Sea Power:

dull, soft focus, 4/4 rubbish

Breeders:

halfway between sloppy Sleater-Kinney and less self-absorbed Cat Power, even if they were there first. not very good.

Iron and Wine:

Vote For Pedro t-shirt brigade vs. my Dublin jersey – unfolding and uncertain – jam sensibilities – virtuoso drummer – Woman King opener – a little too spacey

+

No Age:

bedroom noise – attack! – youth abandon punk

+

Diplo:

mix mix mix – combining rhythms – Soulja Boy and Lil Wayne and Paper planes – Baltimore to bhangra

+

Modeselektor:

boring
