Don’t know about the rest of the record but this is basically a black metal cover of Smetana’s orchestral piece of the same name.
Feels weird to refer to something as a cover of a classical song, but there you have it.
watch your fucking back Deer____ bands
Oh my god. Grow up.
Uh maybe I’m misunderstanding you, but you’ve got the wrong festival. This was the Ottawa Folk Festival. Folk is in the name. It’s a folk festival. And for the most part, bands have a folk-ish element to their music. Most genre festivals bring in bigger bands with more tenuous roots to the genre, just to pay the bills. But still and all, largely a folk festival. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ottawa_Folk_Festival
Eh he played another show the day before at the same festival, and was similarly ripping on the comparatively unknown country-folk-ish band you could hear in the background at the time too. (“You guys got hillbillies in Ottawa too?!”). Guess which show’s comments make the blog news though.
He’s just taking the piss to give the show a little juice. Not to mention in that first show the spill-over was loud enough to be obnoxious for the quieter kind of music he plays. I can only imagine how much worse it would have been when a louder band like War on Drugs played.
I don’t even like Sun Kil Moon that much. It’s just clear to me this is being spun into something it isn’t.
thats very Tight Butthole
That Black Mirror episode where the woman’s husband dies and in her attempts to cope with the grief, gets a robot with an AI personality tailored to be like him, is one of the saddest hours of television ever aired. Non-stop tears.
it was “ok”
Love everything of hers that I’ve heard so far. Sounds like a fierce desert wind.
