I’ve danced in the mud, hugged strangers and seen many a good band this bank holiday weekend. I’ve been at Leeds Festival!
Foals properly stepped it up in their co-headline slot, The 1975 proved they have headliner potential, the Jack Daniels stage truly rocked and despite the Red Hot Chili Peppers newest member not quite filling John Frusciante’s boots they certainly knew how to provoke a crowd-wide singalong.As this was my last festival of the summer I can already but maybe I’ll catch this lot in a field somewhere next summer? Kate Tempest – Don’t Fall In The ever-talented Kate Tempest returns with easy flowing 'Don’t Fall In', the first taste of the follow up to the Mercury Prize nominated Everybody Down. Lyrically, the track is as dark and disillusioned as the grinding beat Tempest throws her vocals over. Thundercat – Bus in These Streets You may recognise Thundercat’s name from his Grammy award for contribution to Kendrick Lamar’s 'These Walls' and if so you may be expecting great things. 'Bus in These Streets' is certainly a great thing, the “comedic ode to our dependence on technology” is a breezy melody, led by sprightly chimes, a steady beat and smooth falsetto all carefully fine-tuned by long-time collaborator Flying Lotus. Danny Brown – Pneumonia Gearing up for the release of his first record in nearly three years, Atrocity Exhibition, Danny Brown has dropped the tantalising 'Pneumonia'. The Detroit-based rapper enlists Evian Christ’s bulky production and a minor appearance from Schoolboy Q as he spits bars at his unadulterated best, painting an ever darker expectation for the next record. LUH – Lost Under Heaven Ex WU LYF front-man Ellery Roberts and audio-visual artist Ebony Hoom AKA Lost Under Heaven (LUH), have released an enigmatic new live video for one of the stand out tracks from their acclaimed Spiritual Songs For Lovers to Sing. This track is an intense wall of sound, with the duo’s vocals clashing as violently as the instruments that lay behind them.
