Sharp indie bands ready for Roskilde 2010

"Sharp indie bands ready for Roskilde 2010 | GoRockfest.Com - The Latest Rockfest, Artist's Live News"

Beach House, Dirty Projectors and Health join the programme.

Today Roskilde have good news for fans of alternative rock and pop. Roskilde Festival announces three wonderful US bands in this end of the genre spectrum.

BEACH HOUSE will have an unforgettable year in 2010 – not only because they will play their first Roskilde Festival concert. The duo's third album Teen Dream is an early contestant as one of 2010's lasting masterpieces. Beach House’s stately dream pop is full of intense, concentrated atmosphere, and Victoria Legrand has one of the strongest voices with her sonorous, mournful sound.

DIRTY PROJECTORS belong in the same skewed hall of fame as Byrne, Bowie and Eno. In 2009, front man Dave Longstreth and his band released the crooked masterpiece Bitte Orca, a mixture of African sounds, US indie and R&B. As a live band Dirty Projectors are also in a league of their own, and Roskilde look forward to presenting them at Roskilde Festival.

HEALTH belongs in the experimental and noisy end of the indie spectrum – the same place where you meet previous Roskilde bands such as No Age and Black Dice. With nihilistic noise, the L.A. punk band offers a wonderful ear massage for everyone with a comfortably depraved taste in music.

This week's bands are all stars and stripes. Next week Roskilde will jump back to our own side of the Atlantic. Roskilde expect a batch of British acts to fall into place, which Roskilde look forward to sharing with you in a very near future.
