Jack White - yawn
Grimes - yawn
Alabama Shakes - music alright, vocals are my least favourite type of vocals.
and so on
i thought it was one of the best ones for ages.
Found it impossible to hate alabama shakes, though was completely ready to. They were actually... ok... didn't mind he jack white songs at all and was happily underwhelmed by the overhyped grimes. Plus, hot girl violinist with the chieftains making their presence forgiveable.
But, jack white, girl or boy band, who was better?
also guy keyboardist is Ikey from The Mars volta
seem to be in a tizzy about that Grimes performance http://www.nialler9.com/13891-grimes-genesis-live-jools-holland/
although I can never quite tell if some people celebrate acts like Grimes in order to 'fit in' or self-define, rather than because they genuinely think she is incredible. Like, I think she's good, and an interesting new act, but let's not go overboard here...
Going overboard is your kind of thing. That rendition of Genesis was the first Grimes song I heard, and it prompted me to give Visions a go, which I am currently enjoying very much.
Now I'm not saying hyping Grimes is anyway more valid than doing the same to Polica/SVIIB etc...but surely its understandable.
Matt Lucas in a wig?
but seriously? SERIOUSLY? It was like some kind of sub-2002 blues rock dirge. I have no idea what people are going crazy about.
Grimes was OK.
seems a bit pointless, live.
but certainly lacked a bit of magic
I heard a rumour that St Vincent was on next week.
Thought Jack White was great and Grimes too.
Rest of it inoffensive.
Norah Jones was actually pretty good (then again, anything sounds 50% more awesome with a Wurlitzer)
The beard of the bassist in Alabama Shakes was clearly the best thing about the show
It was nice to see Jack White with a decent drummer for a change.
The Chieftians were class.
the alabama shakes' success is just utterly despairing isn't it. why would anyone make, or listen, to this music
but it could be a lot worse, I mean I don't mind listening to it (though won't out of choice), though I was shocked to find out the lead vocalist was actually a women
it really couldn't be worse. there isn't anything redeeming about them at all.
whose the chick in the red dress, that was shit
it is offensive though. really, really, really boring blues rock with some shit purposefully 'raw' gurning vocals over the top. awful
Think the beat artist though was probably Norah Jones. No lie.
yeah agree on both counts. love that old nancy sinatra style guitar on the last song. fairly sure it's the best style of playing
and i quite like Grimes
not really. it's live looping. like your ed sheerans
Jack White's first band sounded just like his second band
Sounded much better than on record, and the lightshow was quite nice
Erm... she HAS got a great voice, but why is she using it backed by a current day version of Counting Crows? I was expecting something exciting, from everything I'd read.
I really enjoyed Jack White though.
