Not sure what to expect from Night+Day next month? This beautifully shot video of the Lisbon leg offers up a lovely taster of what to expect. We’re getting very excited now and the line-up - Solange, Mount Kimbie, Polica, Kindness, Jamie xx (DJ), Benji B (DJ), Sampha (DJ) - promises to provide some sweltering music.
You can watch The xx’s full set at Coachella above, and it was a pretty special one too. The trio were joined by Solange at once point to cover Aaliyah’s Hot like Fire. Brilliant stuff… Have a look above and buy tickets to The xx’s Night + Day below.
Field Day and Rough Trade have teamed up for a very special compilation album.
The double disc, out on Record Store Day, has been put together by Field Day and Eat Your Own Ears man Tom Baker and is full of classics from acts on the 2013 bill including Animal Collective, Bat For Lashes, Django Django, Four Tet (Official), Savages, Solange, TNGHT and many more.
To find out more (including tracklist) head to Rough Trade, where you can also pre-order a ticket/CD bundle. http://www.roughtrade.com/albums/71506
