Roskilde Festival 2010

Monday, July 5th, 2010

So it’s all over now and all that is left is echoes of the music in the form of static hiss in the ears. Great festival. Not the best program, but very good concerts from Alice In Chains, Them Crooked Vultures (perhaps the best of the festival), Möterhead, Kasabian, Beachhouse, LCD Soundsystem (from a-very-far – now that’s a lot of people in a small tent) and Kissaway Trail (Our very own X Sessioneers). Much to my regret, I missed Robyn, Die Antwoord and Dirty Projectors, because of conflicting concerts. National were excellent. Pavement were decent. Titus Andronicus was a bit of a dissapointment… Prince was ridiculous – he actually wore a jumpsuit – Elvis style and with a picture of Elvis on it. No song played in at under 15 minutes, with at least 4 solo’s, gospel choir call and response… in every fucking song. But that boy can play – gotta give him that.

I kind of missed more digital stuff this year – maybe a bit of programming and maybe I was just in a rocky mood. I also missed a big metal name. Meshuggah and The Kandidate were OK.

See ya next year.

Basically the X Sessions is taking 17 of the best bands in Denmark and recording about four songs with each of them per session. So far we’ve launched 16 songs and videos, for free streaming and download . And we wont stop until all 70 songs are out there… and then we will record some more. God willing…and Morten from Sony Ericsson:-) If you want updates then follow The X Sessions on facebook or twitter or even Youtube. Of course you can just follow us on www.xsessions.dk. Uh and we launch Oh No Ono on thursday. Don’t miss it.
