Absentee – Something to Bang
I have a few friends heading to the Electric Picnic for the weekend who, due to a combination of not recognising a fair few names on the bill and being underwhelmed by many of the ones they do, feel like they might have a bit of time to kill during three days of taking in the general ‘craic’ of the atmosphere. Should you be in a similar position, perhaps you might give Absentee a go – they play the Cosby stage at 13:30 on Sunday.
If I were going, I’d also be sure to check out The Balanescu Quartet, Faust, Kormac, Breakology vs. Breakdown, Dawn Landes, Tinariwen, Donal Dineen, Rarely Seen Above Ground, A-Trak, Cut Copy, Santogold, Cathy Davey, Laura Marling, YACHT, Henry Rollins, The Black Lips, The Dodos, Micah P. Hinson and of course all the obvious good stuff like The Breeders, My Bloody Valentine and George Clinton.
