Drifting in and out of consciousness

My tweets

  • Wed, 20:08: *The Secret Rivals* Melodically shouty duets between the small keyboard lady & the lanky guitar man. Endearingly cheerful, rather Bis-esque.
  • Wed, 20:16: *The Cellar Family* The rumbling bass, off-kilter guitar & unsettling singing felt like mere backing to awesomely complex, shifting drumming
  • Wed, 20:40: *Deer Chicago* Warm blanket of guitar, plangent vocals, solid drums, sudden xylophone! Could be great with some hooks, simply pleasant as is
  • Wed, 21:50: *Tiger Mendoza* Drum machine, bass samples, guitar & rotating vocalists. Basic, but something about them punches through my filters into joy
  • Wed, 22:21: *Dallas Don't* Evocative lyrics melodically shouted over classic grunge guitars. Bleak but energetic, rather Pixies-y, very much my thing.
  • Wed, 22:29: *Half Decent* Pretty dope beats (dubstep Rhianna FTW!) under adequate rapping. The relentless optimism alternates between winning & tiresome
  • Wed, 22:40: So Oxford's Planet Hollywood has become a club with a roadworks theme? Did aliens scan the city & decide that must be our favourite thing?
  • Wed, 23:43: I will round off the evening's reviews with a selection of unfair snap judgements of bands that I only saw for a few minutes.
  • Wed, 23:45: *Tamara Parson-Baker* Promising murder ballads, but I wasn't in the mood. *Kill Murray* Boring indie rock. *Manacles of Acid* Generic house.
  • Wed, 23:56: Here ends my Punt, the annual venue-crawl of Oxford's best unsigned bands. It was great, & thanks to my companions @cleanskies & @timscience
