Never before has it been more tempting to go on about our perception of LP’s lyrics. “One Night In The Sun” just boils and freezes one’s conscience in singular still frames of the hazards of an ending love. And LP, as an experienced heart surgeon, is very precise and clever with her cuts. The words are so dazzlingly brilliant. Maybe the best we’ve ever read from LP. Tangible, sensual, sunburnt.

Many different elements combined to form how special this entire show seemed to us, even before it actually happened. It was LP’s first gig of 2017 and also her first event after she had spent a few months playing almost exclusively in Europe, finishing the year with her intense Lost In Europe tour in mid-December of 2016.

It’s peculiar, the way we came across The Mars Volta. It was some ten years ago, on some old pen drive of unknown origin, when we found an mp3 off The Mars Volta’s second album, Frances the Mute (2005). The music got our attention right away. Quite likely, the way the band loosely speaks with the early work of Pink Floyd did the trick. Read more

It’s probably a bit late for this, 15 months in, but we feel we should explain the idea behind our “outstanding performance” series. An interesting thing about the general idea of standing out is that there’s always some grabbing element to it. And whenever you get to be the receiving party, you’re granted this rare opportunity of letting it influence you in some peculiar way. Read more
