Look, we've done all the work for you
End of the Road begins at the end of this month (31 August). That’s four nights of music at Larmer Tree Gardens in Dorset kicking off with Slowcoaches, The Moonlandingz and Slowdive on the Thursday, right through to Bill Callahan bringing it all to a close on the Sunday. Among other stuff, we’re hosting the Big Top stage on Saturday with a line-up which features the likes of Gold Panda, Let’s Eat Grandma and Romare. If you’re heading along but are still scratching your chin about who to see, let us be your guide. These are our recommendations – we’re confident they’ll be highlights.
Timber Timbre (Sunday)
It’s a stone cold fact that Timber Timbre have released one of the best guitar albums of the year so far. The good news is that if ‘Sincerely, Future Pollution’ has passed you by, you’re not the only one, and so there’s still time to discover it and tell everybody else how good it is. A record about the “utter chaos and confusion” of 2016 (a great year), the Canadian band’s sixth album is coldwave if coldwave had a sleazy lounge groove, like Nick Cave fronting a bitter ’80s Vegas house band. Bring your black velvet suit for this one.
