10 reasons not to miss NOS Primavera Sound 2015 (pt1)

And by reasons we mean concerts. Only shitty festivals need attractions besides music itself. Here are 10 of the concerts not to miss in this year’s edition of NOS Primavera Sound that most people probably aren’t going to see, but they should. Antony & the Johnsons is, of course, absent from this list, because you already know you have to see him. Or flee from the festival grounds if you don’t like him at all.

#17: Giant Sand, “Heartbreak Pass”

In this week’s playlist we focus on the new Giant Sand album, Heartbreak Pass. Here’s to more 30 years of Howe Gelb writing better songs than you! One of the acts to check on this years’ NOS Primavera Sound in about a month. Be sure to check Twerps as well – we’ll let you know when the festival’s timetable is available! I wish I could say My Morning Jacket would be there too… Their new record is amazing. What a time to be alive.
