I was utterly utterly blown away by Antlers at Great Escape on Saturday. Like, properly, eyes shut, lost for the duration and all gooey eyed for several hours afterwards. Burst Apart sounds so much more live. I never thought I'd have flashes of Prince and Spiritualized rushing through the picture show in my head at the same time. They've just announced a tour in November and I encourage you to go see it:
8 – Concorde 2, Brighton
9 – Thekla, Bristol
10 – Koko, London
11 – Rainbow, Birmingham
12 – Stylus – Constellations Festival, Leeds
14 – Soundcontrol, Manchester
15 – King Tuts, Glasgow
I saw Gang Gang Dance at Great Escape too, but I'm sure you all know they're great. And Luke Abbott, was, just, wow, something else - never been so moved by a single dude twiddling nobs. Spose I should finish my festival review...
Who've you seen lately that has been rather superb?
