Janelle Monae, Neon Indian, Mountain Man for Picnic
More great additions to the fantastic Electric Picnic bill, via http://www.irishtimes.com/blogs/ontherecord/. Among them: pop sensation Janelle Monae, whose eclectic, Outkast-influenced concept album The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III) is getting well-deserved rave reviews across the board; chillwave Texans Neon Indian; and Mountain Man, the all-female folk trio whose debut Made the Harbour is one of the highlights of the year so far:
Dennis Alcapone & the Dubcats
Vengeance & the Panther Queen
More to come as well, apparently!
Mountain Man - Soft Skin by Bella Union
Freelance Whales - Hannah by Freelance Whales
Memory Tapes and Breakestra are OUT due to 'unforeseen circumstances'. Hmmmm.
