‘Where are the guitars?’ questions many are alarmed at Pukkelpop. However, they are under more Rolling Blackouts, the Coastal Fever. Four pieces, including the beautiful Gretsch singer-guitarist Tom Russo.
RBCF – hey, Red Hot Chili Peppers you may also abbreviate – meegesurft from Australia on the wave fashioned abrasive guitars that we have already all of King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Courtney Barnett toestopte. Between all those languid trapbeats, tropical pop songs and twisted electronics were their grimy indierocksongs a breath of fresh air. However, more people found that, apparently, because The Elevator – okay, not the greatest tent – ran all the way full for the five of us from Melbourne.
War on Drugs, amphetamines
Live were not only the onbeteugeld ringing guitars of the band, but also the three overlapping vocal lines of Russo and his guitar-playing colleagues Joe White and Fran Keaney. And then the motorikdrums of Marcel Tussie, that the songs did voortdenderen as a runaway train in search of the behind the horizon setting sun.
‘Crazy Horse, with pepper in his hole’, recorded by ‘Talking straight’, one of the fast-paced songs that RBCF‘s debut Hope downs do drop down from the endorphins. It also had ” The War On Drugs creaking on amphetamines on Highway 61’. Just as often, it did still lick The Go-Betweens and a nod to the young REM.
The jakkerde all due to a sometimes what uniform pace, but ‘Mainland’, a song about their and our privileged position on this side of the vluchtelingencrisis, threw his bunches out to a catchy melody. Finale ‘French press’ koketteerde with the best in each other hakende guitars since Television.
Rolling Blackouts, the Coastal Fever, made us shiver, but from pleasure.
