We're kicking Friday off inside with two artists from Israel, co-presented by Israeli fest Tune In Tel Aviv: Burger Records-approved shoegazers Vaadat Charigim and alt-pop singer Ninet Tayeb (who we just caught rescuing Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson at Beacon Theater).
After that, it's feminist punks Tacocat, followed by the driving piano-led pop duo Slingshot Dakota. Then it's Montclair, NJ indie rockers Pinegrove whose new album on Run For Cover has been getting a lot of buzz (including from us), followed by Ohio indie punks All Dogs. It gets a little quieter to end the day, with recent ATO signee Margaret Glaspy, and the prolific and talented Kevin Morby, whose new album is shaping up to be a good one.
On the outside stage, the day begins with LA R&B trio KING, who just blew us away at the NYC release show for their debut album. Then it's lo-fi indie rocker Alex G, psych rockers Night Beats, the promising new band with ex-Smith Westerns members Whitney, and UK indie rockers Yuck who are always a good time. Then it switches up a bit, with the wildly eccentric Prince Rama (whose new album on Carpark is a winner), and finally a band who's even more eccentric, Cocorosie. Their sixth album came out just a few months ago.
