Live preview of HarvestFestival 2012

Santigold

WHAT TO EXPECT

“Ever the entertainer, Santigold was full of encouragement for those willing to dance, inviting about 25 extras on stage to help out on Creator, and later, while the band jammed away during a costume change, the stage was led by a two-piece horse dancing away while the backups did their best to lasso the thing.” That’s what FL’s reviewer in Melbourne witnessed when Santi visited us for Parklife last year. Just over a year later she’s back, but this time she has a new album to celebrate.

The gang at Clash saw Santi perform in London a few months back and reported back that “amidst all the choreography and the pantomime horses, it's the music that stands out more than anything else. Tonight is as much about the songs as it is about the spectacle and Santigold has more than enough good tunes to warrant a great night out. The music world is a better place for her presence.”

SET HIGHLIGHT

We’re sure Santi’s show at Harvest will have plenty of musical highlights including the stage-invasion madness of Creator and new album faves like The Keepers and Disparate Youth, but will any other acts be dancing with a pantomime horse?

WHAT IT WILL LOOK LIKE

Beruit

WHAT TO EXPECT

Zach Condon and his Beirut cohorts visited us earlier this year playing a festival dates and a few sideshows including a date a the Sydney Opera House. FL’s reviewer at the Opera House gig gave us a preview of what to expect at Harvest by reporting that “The range of Beirut’s sound – from intimate to epic – is one of the band’s defining characteristics on record. It was more evident, however, in their live show. Rich brass lines formed musical collages with percussive blasts and walls of sound formed as quickly as they were broken, leaving behind a solo serenading of Condon. The band’s ability to relish in both extremes served as a true testament to the versatility that has made them as lauded as they are amongst their peers.”

LIKELY BERUIT SETLIST

The Shrew
Elephant Gun
Vagabond
Postcards From Italy
Mimizan

SET HIGHLIGHT

We’re looking forward to lying back on the grass at Harvest with a beer in hand as the afternoon sun fades and the drum solos, complex accordion lines and flaring brass crescendos of Nantes wash over a the crowd. Bliss.

I think Urlo Negro was only played that early in Mondo Cane's set because the rain made all the violinists and whatnot run off stage for a while.

It was a great show, but at Harvest I don't know if there's any point choosing them over another band in the event of a clash as I don't think it'll be much different.

or, possibly an "unlikely" set list.

seriously shouldn't you have something more on add to this article then attempting to predict a set list for shows that are 4 months away.

i doubt that this is will be the likely set list at all; but i guess this is more a form of advertising than informing.

typical fasterlouder article;
and, lets us all pray that "loser" is out.

Hey Mark,

Harvest aren't spending one cent with FL. We do these articles cause all anyone talks about leading up to a festival that is four months away, is what is going to happen at that festival that is four months away.

This is a set that Beck played at a festival less than a few weeks ago and has played since, sooo pretty sure it is the likely set list. And Loser will be in.

Not that I should bother wasting my breath on a dude that interns for Music Feeds.

Sincerely,

Suck it.

LOL

I should be honest, I don't know if there is an MF connection. I was just trying to think of the worst thing I could call someone...
