ANIMAL COLLECTIVE (US)
Thursday 04.07.13 - 23:00 - Arena
The residents of Animal Collective – Avey Tare, Panda Bear, Geologist and Deakin – have pushed pop music into a whole new dimension on a number of deeply curious albums, latest on Centipede Hz from 2012.
The Americans' music – inspired by avant-garde and minimalist art music – sounds like a batch of children high on sugar let loose behind synthesizers, microphones and drums. Playfulness and joy of music in all colors of the rainbow.
Below the turbulent soundtrack a pop heart beats, not unlike that of Beach Boy Brian Wilson's.
Animal Collective is a wild celebration of the potential of music – sparkling with life and alien forms.
Label: Domino / Playground
Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
