I finally got to see Lankum last night almost three years after they were due to play at Green Man. It was worth the wait. Glad I’ll get to see them again at Green Man this year. Do you reckon they’ll be on the Mountain Stage?
Another shout out for Islet here. They were excellent last Friday in Cardiff playing the inaugural Celebrate This Place (named after the Islet EP from 2010) festival. Other honorable mentions for Saloon Dion, C.O.F.F.I.N, Lambrini Girls, Bug Club, Dream Wife and Psychedelic Porn Crumpets at the same festival.
I still have to catch up on much of the Glastonbury coverage but good to see quite a few who are also playing Green Man. Young Fathers and Comet Is Coming had good reviews and both on my must see list. Can’t help thinking now would have been a great time to book Sparks.
Some good stuff at Llais festival in Cardiff this October. A re-formed Rachel Unthank & The Winterset will play The Bairns at The Unthanks All-Dayer; Bat For Lashes; James Yorkston and Nina Persson; Gwenno; and an evening with guests celebrating Joni Mitchell’s Both Sides Now and Travelogue.
