wow, interesting stuff, to say the least. the drumming seems really simple, repetitive. what would a bass and a second guitar do to those pieces? i agree, they tend to be solo stuff...

"the clearest of the clips sounds rather like live versions of unknown Isn't Anything-era material...", not sure what you mean here. Is it because one sounds a tiny bit like "all i need"? None of the drum patterns are anything like mbv has ever put out.

No, I hear it too. There is another song I saw on instagram with a definite 'punky' sound and chord progression reminiscent of that 'You Made Me Realise/Isn't Anything era. Kevin's probably got way more tunes in his back pocket then many realise.

Sounds really good, although the drumming there seemed pretty uninspired. Those guitar sounds, though...

Have there been any decent recordings of this, or just clips on Instagram?

I couldn't find anything on YT (searched under North and north, North and down, Noršur og Nišur etc.). I guess it will start popping up with time.

I'm not so sure. It's almost counter-intuitive but a decent recording of such an event was far more likely a decade or two ago. Everyone there seems to have relied on their phone, which is one of the worst ways to record a show like this.

not sure about a decent recording, but I'm surprised at the lack of videos otherwise. I guess it was a smaller(?) festival, but I assumed there would be at least one full song out there somewhere.

hm, interesting. Would be nice to get more info. Who was that on drums?

It's the guy from Godspeed..., and the drums are far too high in the mix and they're pretty poisonous to the whole effect too, having listened to those clips more than once.

It has to be solo Kevin stuff. I'm sure he has plenty of stuff kicking around. Hopefully this is just an indication that Kevin is letting his hair down so to speak and we will get more material on a semi regular basis, at least that's my optimistic way of looking at it. Does sound cool from those clips

This was the track I was talking about. It's got that steady krautrock beat and Kevin's guitar has that grungey rumble to it.

Oh yeah, that's quite funky, rather than droney or ambient. Sounds cool.

Sounds more like Nothing Is than anything else... Btw, I don't remember seeing this blue Jazzmaster in previous live sessions.

Yeah, if it has a similarity (not that I am looking for one) I too would say nothing is. And, loving your guitar knowledge ctu! ;-)
