Germany 2018 [no label, 1CD]

Hurricane Festival. Eichenring, Scheeßel, Germany; June 22, 2018. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV webcast).

London Grammar’s music has been described as “a blend of ambient, ethereal and classical sounds” with melancholy guitar, soaring vocals, plaintive lyrics and in the case of the track “Hey Now”, very heavy sub-bass. - wikipedia

Think trip-hop, or what trip-hop did next: chillout - given a bit of 2013 spit and polish. - The Guardian

Singer Hannah Reid has a big, important-sounding voice though, and elsewhere she and her bandmates come up with compelling stuff… ‘Metal & Dust’, a classy combination of pop hooks and trip-hop beats. - NME

It’s no surprise that Reid’s strong vocals are at the forefront of London Grammar’s sound… although at times they come close to overshadowing the subtle instrumentation provided by keyboardist Dominic Major and guitarist Dan Rothman, it’s actually the intrinsic balance between the contributions of all three that defines their sound. -

  6. I’m (nearly) as old as the hills but I like these, and her voice,. Thanks BigO.

  7. Being a Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen fan, great technical singing skill is not high on my musical requirements, but a voice that nonetheless rings through and draws me in is necessary. Unfortunately, hers does not.

    Still, kudos to Bigo for posting such a wide variety of artists.
