NFR Setlist 5th March, 2009

Here's our first setlist from the Penthouse for our new blog!

First up, Meatbreak's jamz. The first hour was pretty stargazey droney and intense - School Of Seven Bells clicked it back into the realms of pop and we hit it up and off, kicking and screaming from there:

Crippled Black Phoenix – Rise Up And Fight (The Resurrectionists, Invada) - Endtime ballads for USX lovers and big sound stargazers.

Heavy Winged – Wool And Water (Monolith:Earth 12”, Music Fellowship) - live improv cerebral sturm-und-drang-dangadang.

Wolves In The Throne Room – Ahrimanic Trance (Black Cascade, Southern Lord) - eco-black-metal grooves and drones like never before.

Kontakte – Motorik (Soundtrack To Lost Road Movies, Drifting Falling) - London post-rock going drum machine supernova.

These Feathers Have Plumes – Quiet Sun, Indian Summer (These Feathers Have Plumes, Period Tapes) - heavy heavy languid bass bliss + kids toys.

Six Organs Of Admittance - Punish The Chasms With Wings (RTZ, Drag City) - Ben Chasney's 19 minute epic percussive finale from the first CD of this double album.

School Of Seven Bells – Iamundernodisguise (Alpinisms, Ghostly International) - Ex-Secret Machine's daydream shoe-gaze (nu-gaze?!) outfit with twin girls = As real a fantasy as you're ever going to get.

Passion Pit – Sleepyhead (Demo) - Next big thing say a lot of the press. We're not so sure. This song is the one peopel are talking about but it's very annoying.

Minnaars – To Jackals (Minnaars EP, Self-Released) - Foals + Futureheads = better than you'd credit!

Turbowolf – Seven Severed Heads (7”, X-Taster) - New single from the next big thing that people don't quite know about but it's only a matter of time. Awesome hyper fast 1.20 speed-pop-metal-punk.

Lloop – Lei-Tei (60 Hertz, The Agriculture) - New Yorker's second lp in years is a 90's nostalgic dub heavy head-nodder. Deep groove and then some.

Distance – Konkrete (Repucussions, Planet Mu) - savagely distorted London dubstep. The sound of buildings collapsing at 140bpm.

Yeah Yeah Yeah’s – Zero (It’s Blitz, Interscope) - Lead track of new album is the weakest and the most different, but interesting all the same.

Mayyors – Airplanes (Megan’s LOLZ 7“, Self-Released) - Full on out there up in the red noise storm of riffs and feedback gore with a pitchshifted breakdown/build up combo that wipes the smile clean off yr face and smashes it straight back on again.

Everyone To The Anderson – Harpoon Flesh Wound (Doodlebug, Toy Soldier) Taut, aggressive, Dischord rock from the Best Band In Brighton : we shit you not.

Action Beat – Dinosaur (The Noise Band From Bletchley, Southern) 3 Sonic Youths playing at the same time, in slow motion.

Cotti – The Search (12”, Soul Jazz) The heaviest bass track I could find in 2008. Played once more for effect (and for Jonathan, coz I know he loves it - we do do request, we do).

Apollo Sunshine – Brotherhood Of Death (Shall Noise Upon, Headless Heroes) Filthy blues atonement screaming LOVE! LOVE! LOVELOVELOVE!!! EVIL!!!!! EVIL!!!!!!

The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – This Love Is Fucking Right (The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Slumberland) - Scene-leaders/stealers of the nu-gaze movement.

Turbowolf – Read And Write (7”, X-Taster) - Most exciting UK band's new single song two.

Crippled Black Phoenix – Rise Up And Fight (The Resurrectionists, Invada) - So good I played it twice.

Quttinirpaaq – The Sea And The Birdman (Dragged Through The Streets, Blackest Rainbow) Texan dust storm Doooooooooooooooom.

Ty Segal – Watching You (Ty Segal, Castle Face) - One man band rockadoowapthefuck!

Blank Dogs – Spinning (The Fields, Woodsist) - One man band Joy Divisiony shoegazeskronkpop.

Lotus Plaza – Different Mirrors (The Floodlight Collective, Kranky) - One man band Deerhunter relative releases beautiful new sound bubble that might burst everyone's brains.

Wormsblood – Inheritor (In The Stars, Skulls Of Heaven) Two people! Weird, rocking,
Back Metal craziness.

Emeralds – Living Room (What Happened, No Fun Productions) - layers of guitar and keyboard brainfuzz love.

Alva Noto – Xerrox Phaser Acat 1 (Xerroxx Vol II, Raster Norton) - Sunn O))) sampling bass noise bliss.
