COLD SPECKS (CA)
Saturday 07.07.12 - 19:30 - Pavilion
’Doom soul’, she calls her music. Canadian act Cold Specks’ bony arrangements sound more like classic, American blues folk with a distinctive singer at the centre.
Close your eyes while the music is playing and you can almost sense cotton-harvesting Southern states of bygone times.
With soft pickings on her acoustic guitar – occasionally accompanied by a little cello and piano – Al Spx creates a goosebumps-inducing atmosphere. Full of dust, patina and longing for deliverance. A brand-new debutant with a voice from the old days.
Label: Mute / 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.
