Been on a kick of Sky Ferreira thanks to a friends recommendation from here I believe, and got to see her last night, holy poo poo was she good live. She came off as being really grateful to the crowd and a bit shy, but she opened up a bit more at the end.

Edit>> Something I thought of later today, about half way through the show her keyboard player handed her a paper plan and told her to throw it during a song. It went about 3 feet into someones face and she struggled to get back on vocals for a verse because she was laughing so much. poo poo like that makes me appreciate live shows so much.

On a side note, I finally saw Phantogram in a smaller venue and the people in this thread that said they were amazing live were completely right. Probably one of my favorite shows ever.

I saw them back in early October and it pretty much sparked me to see five other concerts in a months time. I've gone to bigger venues than the one they played at, yet Phantogram in a smaller place was still louder than any other, and wrecked my body for a good two days after the show. They will literally blow your tits off.

That's about the extent of my indie knowledge these days. I need to discover some new music. Are there any really great psychedelic bands out there right now?

Possibly Darkside. They got a great review from Pitchfork and one of the writers there labeled them as Pink Floyd-esk.

Another one I saw this year was Poliša, and they have a semi psychedelic feel to them I feel like.

Lead singer must of had singing lessons, sadly. Chorus comes in strong, and the music is tight which sounds great overall. Trademark lows come at the end of the song, so theres hope.

Ya, not feeling this. Really hope the rest of their new album isn't like this.

I've got:

St. Vincent in March, so excited :swoon:
Arcade Fire in August

This has been, and continues to be, a really lovely concert season, as far as I'm concerned.

e: Speaking of St. Vincent, what does everyone think of the two songs she's put out from her upcoming album?

Birth in Reverse: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0c5BhXdVBqw

Digital Witness: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7LsBjrqqHA

Digital Witness in particular is very weird, but I love them both. Cannot wait for the album.

I really like them, but I was just introduced to St Vincent in the past month, so I might not be as nostalgic for her older stuff like most seem to be.

I've recently discovered Banks and can not get enough of her. She only has a four song EP and a few other singles, but I swear I've listened to it all like ten times in the past two days.

Phantogram new album stream on NPR

First listen, I really like it, more-so than their debut.

Was listening to this earlier today, funny that I think only three or four songs on it haven't been released yet. It's got four from the EP and three singles they have released in the past month and a half. Still, I am super pumped for this album. Howling At The Moon is another power house of a song, 75% of the songs on Voices are phenomenal singles on their own.

I don't know if anyone knows about them outside of Europe, but they're a really good Indie Rock/Folk band, I guess they could be called a bit similar to The National but I think they're quite unique really.

I saw Gorillaz about three years ago and was so bummed out when they didn't have Del come out at the end for Clint Eastwood. Glad he finally did come out for one though, but would have loved to been there for it. I at least got De La Soul to do Feel Good Inc though, and that still remains one of my favorite concert moments.

Sorry if this is a repeat, couldn't find any mention of them quite a few pages back or search, but Sylvan Esso is absolutely amazing. They have only had a handful of songs for the past year and a half or so, but I just discovered they are releasing a full ten song album in May. The lead singer looks and dresses like some middle aged mom, but her voice is such beautiful ear candy. Posting some live performances to show they sound just as amazing without much digital clean up.

More St Vincent dates in Europe. I'm gonna have to go see her in London again, I think. Presales start tomorrow.

I did enjoy her show here last month, but be warned she has been canceling shows out of the blue to do others things. She moved two shows (two days after the show I saw her) in Ohio to the end of the year because she was asked to do the Nirvana induction and cancelled like another weeks worth of shows in London because Saturday Night Live asked her to be the musical guest. I understand big things like this can come up, but it's pretty lame to just dump on your fans like that.

I love St Vincent on record, but am I the only one who finds her current live choreographed schtick a little lame and cringey? You can tell she's been hanging out with David Byrne, but she doesn't really have the same charisma to pull it off and make it seem natural. I'm not hating too hard: her performance is awesome aside from that

Ps one of the performances is on YouTube if you're not in the UK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmnhY9Smj3M

This is the way I and a few friends felt after seeing her live. She sounds amazing on an album, but it doesn't seem to transfer over to a live performance very well. Her choreography is neat too, but it feels forced to me, like it isn't really her.
