pitch4k1@ZackTeibloom After the great success that was yesterday (reviews to come shortly), it’s with great anticipation and a tad bit of sadness that I attack today’s lineup. I always get a little melancholy on the last day of a festival. The tiny voice in the back of your head saying, “Yep, tomorrow you’ll be at work.” No matter. Today’s going to be glorious.

Here are five bands that I think you should check out today.

5. Blitzen Trapper (2:30 Stage A) – With a country rock flair liken to Neil Young and a solid reputation within the indie rock circle, these Portland boys garnered much acclaim and airplay with their latest
album, Furr, released back in 2008. I have to thank @rainnwilson for sharing the love and linking to their site one day a few months back.

4. Women (3:35 Stage B) – Pitchfork loves Canada this year. It seems that almost every band is from our brother to the north. Women, straight outta Calgary, in fact has no females in the band and has a echoy chamber pop beach sound that is sort of unnerving and all awesome.

3. M83 (6:15 Stage A) – I’ve listened to this band longer than I knew what the name of the band was. Strange. However that has since been quickly resolved and M83 has become a staple of my chill afternoon music collection. Mostly the work of Frenchman Anthony Gonzalez, M83’s textured and synth-driven sound is sure to keep the crowds at Pitchfork on their feet.

2. Grizzly Bear (7:25 Stage C) – Probably one of my favorite bands ever, I am super pumped to finally see them live. I got my sticky little fingers on a leak of their newest album Vecktimest back in March and was instantly mesmerized. No album from these guys ever sounds quite the same as the others. After Pitchfork, Grizzly Bear kicks of their European tour until late November so they won’t be back in the States for a while. You better go see ‘em.

1. The Flaming Lips (8:40 Stage A) – After years and years on the festival circuit, The Flaming Lips still draw in the crowds at every single one. With some of the most psychedelic and imaginative music to come out this quarter of a century, no wonder they are still alive and kicking with such a strong and loyal fan base. I’m determined to find my way on stage. Wish me luck.

Honorable Mention:
The Very Best (8:30 Stage B) – Why on earth would they put such a great band up against The Flaming Lips?! Singer Esau Mwamwaya from Malawi partnered up with a production team called Radioclit to create a style that sounds like a cross between native Malawian music and the best of 2008 mix tape you made for your best friend last year. Singing over songs such as “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa” and “Heart It Races”, it’s a shame they put him against the main headliner of the weekend. If you aren’t a Flaming Lips fan, DEFINITELY check them out.

Catch you on the flip side, P4Kers
