PAGEANTS (USA)

90’s nostalgists Pageants played solid indie pop tunes with a winsome attitude. This isn’t the kind of band that’s going to generate superficial, vacuous buzz but it is the kind of band that I want to support and jam out to on a Sunday morning.

LAETITIA SADIER (FRANCE)

Sadier is a worldwide musical treasure with or without Stereolab. Gorgeous, mellow songs with a deep emotional resonance. I felt so overwhelmed after Sadier dedicated a tune to the late Trish Keenan. Despite a broken bass string (props to Pageants’ drummer for saving the night with a replacement bass) this was an inspired, sublime performance.

    I teared up when Laetitia dedicated that song to Trish… now I regret not finding out sooner what it was! Do you know the title? Thank you

    Sorry, I can’t remember the title either!
