Lou Barlow - Hoxton Bar & Kitchen.
Great hair. Tied with Helena Espvall for coolest haircut in indie rock.

Just catching up here - Great review! Sounds like you have a blinder at Unsound. Love HTRK and love Donato Dozzy too, he's playing London's Corsica Studios soon. All good stuff there!

Was anyone else at the Liverpool Psych Fest? It was brilliant.

Hey Colossus were insane, rarely has the phrase "tearing the place to shreds" been more apt - 8pm on Saturday evening in the new "District" stage/room changed people's lives. Radar Men From the Moon were brilliant earlier on and you should all make a point of seeing them. The Heads were astronomical; I don't think I've ever heard such clarity in playing and such continual layering of rhythmic sounding noise from a band possibly ever. Also on the Saturday Lumerians and to end K-X-P were superb.

On Friday highlights were the amazing Karen Gwyer, after midnight took us on an amazing electronic exploration of deep and slow techno tones, got totally lost in it. I've seen Karen a lot and talk about her a lot, this was up there with the best I've seen and was perfect. The Octopus Project from Texas with Theremin and four members switching roles in a leave-your-attitude-at-the-door sort of show, wonderfully uplifting, Vuelvetoloca were a great start and Giant Swan, two young lads throwing down scrunchy fun electronic noises and some guitar were also brill (seem them before too).

It's a superb festival and we have a great and very heavy time of it!

Agreed. "Saw" them in Vancouver and it was probably in the top 10 best gigs I've ever "seen".

Beach house in London.

Dunno ... My love for beach house has allowed me to watch them countless times without being bored. I love the new records.

This show was bit of a nothing, not sure if it was due to it being quiet. Underwhelmed, and I'm sad to say it.

Quite a few since I last posted. Kate Bush, King Crimson and David Gilmour were all excellent. I did feel a bit "WHAT YEAR IS THIS!?" from Jumanji.

Also, hello again everyone! *waves*

Saw The Brian Jonestown Massacre. They played for a long time and it was a good show.

Autechre last night, in London, in a dark room. Impressive set, sounded so expansive. Hugely enjoyable.
