This is the second part of ten bands that I intend to see in Primavera, the first part can be found here.
Llevant stage: Saturday 28th May, 18:45h
I'm not sure I need to repeat myself again, I've mentioned probably about twenty times just how stunning this band are, and even more so on the live stage. Looking forward to it.
ATP stage: Thursday 26th May, 18:00h
When I saw them last year, the show was utterly chaotic, tending to swap instruments between songs. Laden with clattering drums (a lot of clattering drums), skewed melodies, propulsive rhythms and either a single vocal or all members yelping at the same time - if you want to start your Primavera with a hypnotic, energetic show, Islet should be your port of call.
Pitchfork Stage: Friday 27th May, 17:00h
The girls speak in Catalan but don't let the language barrier put you off because if you are a fan of the surf-pop scene that's made Vivian Girls, Best Coast, Dum Dum Girls and so on nme darlings then you are sure to love Aias. Their album 'A La Piscina' is full of jangly, reverb-heavy fuzzy guitars, you know the sort, basically lo-fi pop sweetness and the girls will certainly be worth a go in their home-town.
San Miguel Stage: Saturday 28th May, 22:30h
I was probably the last person in the UK to fall for her, only really getting into her material with the release of 'Let England Shake' this year and I'm intrigued to hear her live show after the album has blown me away.
Llevant stage: Friday 27th May, 21:15h
Many of you will know what to expect during their 75 minute slot, hopefully the decent set length will mean we'll be treated to many favourites and a few surprises... Will we get to hear "Exile Vilify" or "Think You Can Wait"? At Brixton they played "Lucky You" which was rather wonderful, though in all honesty them turning up will be enough, but if they play the stunning live versions of "About, Today" and "Terrible Love" I'll leave one very happy camper.
Sure I missed off Animal Collective, Battles, Factory Floor etc. FF probably would have got a shout but they play at 03.45!!! Even armed with Pro Plus I cannot see my old bones being awake then!
