The first Landmark Festival, like any music festival in its first year, didn’t have a flawless start. Social media proved that many attendees were disgusted by the long lines for beverages and food on the first day. Hand it to Landmark, however, for quickly addressing these issues, making for a truly remarkable experience for Day 2. To top it all off, the second day’s line-up was just a little bit more weird and more complimentary to the Super Blood Moon which made for a truly historic day surrounded by the living history of the festival grounds.
Image Courtesy of Chromeo It was a Monday night at the 9:30 club in DC on September 29th, but the venue was bouncing nonetheless. Chromeo, the electro-funk duo hailing from Montreal, was rolling in their usual funky style with lead vocalist and guitarist Dave 1 (David Macklovitch) sporting a bright red leather jacket, and […]
Text by Darragh Dandurand. Images by Teresa McCullough. Like an expensive and excessive whirlwind, the controlled chaos that is Made In America rocked Philadelphia this past weekend. Piles of Budweiser beer cans, cigarette butts, lost shoes, broken umbrellas, muddy American flags and miscellaneous trash covering the parkway on Sunday night told the story of a festival that once […]
Earlier this year, Consequence of Sound asked “Where are all the hip-hop festivals?” Made in America may have indie-rock, EDM, soul and other popular genres mixed in, but it was hip-hop and rap that took center stage yesterday in Philadelphia.
Queens-based rapper Bas tore up the Skate Park stage to get the day started, performing songs from his debut album, Last Winter—released via J. Cole’s Dreamville Records. Later on the same stage, Philly’s own Moosh & Twist went balls-to-the-walls with it, bouncing all over the stage and even climbing it. At just 21-years-old, ...

Sweetlife took over Merriweather Post Pavilion for the fourth year running this past Saturday. The DC area descended on Columbia, MD en masse for the sold out festival, which featured sets from Foster The People, Lana Del Rey, Chromeo, St. Lucia, ASTR and more. The always-awesome Nate Cover was on site to shoot photos for us. Check them about below

The Sweetlife Festival, celebrating its fifth year in the D.C. metropolitan area, brought an estimated 20,000 attendees to the Merriweather Post Pavilion for three stages of bands and several lots of food and beer. Presented by D.C. salad shop Sweetgreen, the festival stretched for about 11 hours, 20 musical acts and perhaps a combined 80 food vendors and retail stores on Saturday, May 10.
While the festival had a few repeat acts this year, I personally found the lineup a lot more to my musical tastes than last ...
Electrofunk duo Chromeo have always seemed like the band having the most fun, so it’s nice to see them letting other artists join in on it with their upcoming album White Women. After some deftly executed feature spots from Ezra Koenig and Toro Y Moi, Solange is entering the mix with an appearance on new track “Lost On The Way Home.” There ends up being plenty of room for both Ms. Knowles’ soulful pop and Chromeo’s funk. The song has a handclap beat and reverbing synths complemented by a deep bassline. Dave1′s falsetto trades off with Solange’s vocals in some call-and-response ...
Dave 1 and P-Thugg, better known collectively as electro-funk duo Chromeo, will release their fourth album, White Women, next week and look poised to be bigger than ever. Following up 2010′s Business Casual, which peaked at #70 on the Billboard 200 chart, the duo has promoted the new album with four singles, the latest being the outrageously catchy “Jealous (I Ain’t With It).” They’re currently booked for Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Glastonbury, Primavera Sound, a few other major festivals and a European tour, but first they’ll stop in a few U.S. cities.
This week’s playlist looks ahead to a packed upcoming concert schedule, with Haim, Chromeo, Chet Faker, Angel Olsen, and plenty more stopping in Philadelphia next week. There are also a couple of new albums highlighted: Nikki Lane’s excellent new country album, All or Nothin’, and tUnE-yArDs vibrant new Nikki Nack. Check out songs from each and much more below.
