Monolith Festival: The Twilight Sad.

The Twilight Sad at Monolith.

Maybe there’s something inherently intense about growing up in Scotland. Maybe I just think every Scot is one small provocation away from going William Wallace, Braveheart-style crazy on any unfortunate chump that is foolish enough to slight them.

Anyway, The Twilight Sad is a noisy, moody bunch. There’s nothing wrong with that. Until some drunk-ass shouts “Billy Corgan!” in reference to frontman James Graham’s very slight resemblance to the similarly buzz-headed Smashing Pumpkins singer (whom The Twilight Sad have toured with, mind you).

“Whut did yew saye? Billly Corrrgan? Funny.” I doubt Graham was being sincere. And then bassist Craig Orzel’s amp crapped out, leading to a frantic change where he borrow Deer Tick‘s bass rig. Despite it all — The Twilight Sad played wonderfully. Definitively one of the best and most surprising gems of the entire festival, these Scots have toured with, but are certainly an improvement over bands like Mogwai, The Smashing Pumpkins and Idlewild.

Grab their new record, Forget The Night Ahead in October.

Monolith Festival: Bad Veins.

Bad Veins.

Bad Veins.

I’m rooting for Bad Veins to make a splash having finally released their debut album. I first saw them in Cincinnati back in 2007 playing for an art auction benefit for my friends’ son. They were good then, and are better now.

Benjamin Davis employs a vintage reel-to-reel tape deck to cover pre-recorded  backing tracks while he alternates between keyboards, crunchy guitar, a telephone and a megaphone. And it’s hard not to notice Sebastien Schultz plugging away efficiently on the drums.

They’ll be back in Denver Oct. 10 at the Hi-Dive. If you missed one of the better shows at Monolith, you’ll want to check them out.

Monolith Festival: Neon Indian.

Written by michael. Filed under Music. Tagged , , , , , , , , . No comments.
Neon Indian. In neon.

Neon Indian. In neon.

Neon Indian is likely to see some breakthrough success when their debut album Psychic Chasms drops this October.

Already awash in buzz, Alan Palomo (of VEGA fame) is crafting a delectable little lo-fi funky groove that should have malnourished hipsters across the nation dancing in their colorful sneakers.

Unfortunately, with their Monolith performance being only the third ever live Neon Indian show, there are definitely some kinks to work out. Still, there’s tons of potential. I, for one, would much rather shake — or briefly consider, then dismiss the idea of shaking — my pale booty to Neon Indian than Girl Talk. Just sayin’.

Palomo even sampled a ‘lil bit of audience participation for a future track. If you were there, you’re famous! Where do we send mailing info for royalties?

Monolith Festival: These United States.

Written by michael. Filed under Music. Tagged , , , , , , . No comments.

Above: These United States, “Honor Amongst Thieves.”

Next up, we ventured downstairs into the visitor center to check out These United States on the WOXY.COM Stage. Here’s the secret if you end up at Monolith in the future: Downstairs is where it’s at for checking out “on-the-cusp” bands that may slip through the cracks. There are some real gems, especially on the WOXY Stage — my butt wasn’t parked in that claustrophobic little room just to stay dry once the rain started. The Walkmen aside, the WOXY Stage was home to all my favorite acts at Monolith.

These United States on the WOXY.COM Stage.

These United States typify my claim. They. Were. Awesome. I was too busy gently nodding my head (a display of extreme excitement and intense joy for me and as expressive as I am capable of being) to film a full song. Their third album, “Everything Touches Everything,” (link to buy) just dropped, do yourself a favor and have ‘em a listen.
