Lowlands Notebooks – Sunday etc

Lykke Li:

magnetic personality – eclectic music – tendency towards hit or miss -banging single

+

MGMT:

songs all either “bleeeeep or faaar away” (thank you Katie) – limp – bad

Sigur Rós:

quiet loud fairytale thing – not half as bowled over as my friends – most of the set ordinary – regular gig, not theatre set-up as Oxegen 2006 – highlights did hit the nordic sublime

+

The Roots:

sore neck from jerking it and trying to dance to rap – unused to this – virtuouso instrumentalists – guitar/bass solos for twelve hours – rap as part of the music, not over the music – ultimate fun – genius festival closer

  1. love the haiku like reviews Karl. You are the Ernest Hemingway of bloggers with your economical yet powerfully descriptive style. *pop* that’s my head safely removed from your ass.

  2. Actually, they were meant to just be notes for actual reviews, but between Analogue pieces, work and needing to sleep sometimes, I decided to plump for this.

    Wish I was the Ernest Hemingway of Bloggers, I love Ernest Hemingway.
