|Misty's Big Adventure.|
Happily the vintage tents made a nice distraction. I also checked out new indie rock hopefuls, Marshmallow Palace* I enjoyed their music but didn't love it. They sound a little bit like Interpol. Hats off to them though, playing in a muddy tent and arriving in their own small van, doing rock n roll the old school way.
Lanterns on the Lake were one of the best acts I got to see. what surprised me
was that their blend of folk and rock is amazingly un-twee. They used violin and a violin bow on a guitar to create a brooding atmosphere. The dark and well crafted songs Lanterns on the Lake produce are a welcome alternative to the likes of Mumford and Sons.
(Part Two is coming up shortly)
*Which sounds like something from Adventure Time
** I have no idea whether these are the correct terms
