Check out all of Uncut’s reports on the second day of this year’s End Of The Road festival, including performances from Bat For Lashes, Goat, Cat’s Eyes and Ezra Furman…
Bat For Lashes
“The fullest realisation of Natasha Khan’s concept comes when a man proposes live on stage; his partner says yes…”
“These days, the old Beta Band enigma is more pugnacious than flakey, and appears to be dressed as a member of some vintage expeditionary force…”
“As a frontman, Furman can magnetise his punters, with a mixture of intense confessional, and genuine right-back-atcha affection…”
Goat and Cat’s Eyes
“Desert blues, hi-life breaks and Ethiopiques shuffles are today generally overwhelmed by a frenetic blend of guitar grunge disco, copious wah-wah and some fruitful long term study of ‘Maggot Brain’…”
Jeffrey Lewis & Los Bolts
“Lewis’ nasal Lou Reed drawl, and songs of wry intelligence, humour and heart, succeed in brightening the sheeting drizzle…”
“He’s music may be intense, but Meilyr Jones is a funny, apparently hyper-confident stage presence, introducing the band six times over while prone on the floor…”
