INCUBATE FESTIVAL - SEP 10 - 16
Thursday 06 September 2012 at 10:16 am
This Monday Tilburg’s annual celebration of cutting-edge indie culture commences! Subbacultcha! editor Carly Blair picked some highlights.
Incubate has developed an excellent reputation not only for its rich and incredibly diverse line-up, but also for its unbridled sense of adventure, which aims to bring progressive music, contemporary dance, film and visual arts to an international audience in an intimate atmosphere. Below are but a few of this year’s many highlights.
By Carly Blair
Legendary Glaswegian post-rock band, known for their knack for seamlessly transitioning from delicate soundscapes to eardrum-shattering white noise.
This Vancouver duo’s latest album ranks among the rock most worth celebrating so far this century.
These Brooklyn veterans make extraterrestrial electronic jazz punk that 15 years into their existence sounds as uncompromising and vital as ever.
Brooklyn four-piece The Men are as virile and no-frills as their name implies, playing hardcore post-punk that’s melodic, distorted and LOUD.
MV & EE
This duo’s noodly, psychedelic folk is beautiful and best-suited to pot and back-porch jam sessions.
Producer Jack Colleran makes enchanting electronica warm and inviting enough to attract listeners like mmoths to a flame.
These LA DJs/producers specialise in chilly, stuttering electronica that defies stereotypes and easy categorisation.
The energetic mix of goth, hardcore and post-punk these precocious Danes have concocted has people labelling them the saviors of punk rock.
Mi Ami/Sex Worker
Audiences can delight doubly in Daniel Martin McCormick’s open and energetic stage presence with his main project Mi Ami, as well as his raw and intimate solo Sex Worker work.
