Pick of the Week: Pitchfork Music Festival at Union Park (July 17 – 19, 2015)

I am very looking forward to seeing  Mac DeMarco play this Friday at Pitchfork Music Festival. Mac DeMarco is a Canadian singer-songwriter. His solo albums contain ‘Rock and Roll Night Club’ and ‘Salad Days’ His sound is very unique and has been described as indie-rock, jangle pop, blue wave, and even includes jazz influences. Although I have never heard a song  of his I didn’t like, some of my favorite  songs include ‘My Kind Of Woman’ ‘Chamber of Reflection’  ‘Ode To Viceroy’ and ‘Blue Boy’

I have been listening to Future Islands for a while now and was very excited to see that they are on the Pitchfork lineup this year. Future Islands is an American synthpop, indie pop and alternative rock band that is based in Baltimore, Maryland. They are playing Pitchfork on Saturday at 7:25pm on the Red Stage. My favorite songs from them are ‘Seasons’ and ‘A Dream Of You and Me’

As an avid listener of The XX, I am obviously very looking forward to seeing Jamie XX perform this  Sunday at Pitchfork. Jamie XX is an English remix artist and music producer known from his solo act Jamie XX and as a member of The XX. I am excited to hear ‘Loud Places’ and ‘I Know Theres Gonna Be Good Times’

Here is an incredible video of Jamie XX feat. Romy perfoming Loud Places on Le Grand Journal.
