Primavera Sound 2013 MP3 Collection

The annual Primavera Sound Festival took place this May at Parc Del Forum in Barcelona, Spain. The festival's line-up is consistantly impressive, bringing together a mix of artists from across genres and generations. 

For the past 5 years, WFMU has been incredibly honored to be the festival's official American radio station. and to have so many incredible acts have give us permission to carry their sets.

These recordings wouldn't be possible without help from WFMU staffers who occupied the mosquito-infested double-wide broadcasting tent during the coldest Primavera festival yet. This includes WFMU's Liz Berg (you love her FMA podcasts and weekly mixes), Brian Turner (thank him for our recent live Mudhoney session), Scott Williams, Evan "Funk" Davies and Scott Konzelmann. You can explore the rest of the archived, streamable (non-downloadable) sets here and here.

All of these artist-approved live recordings are being offered under a Download Only License, which means they welcome you to listen but not remix or use in videos.

Primavera Sound 2012 MP3 Collection, Pt. 2

And we're back with more live music from this Summer's Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona. We've got six artists on deck for the second batch, including:

Sharon Van Etten :: Afrocubism :: Dirty Three :: The Field :: The Pop Group :: James Ferraro

Brooklyn's Sharon Van Etten is on quite the up and up with her soulful blend of folk and pop - we've got her full set from Primavera for your listening pleasure, and don't miss her performance at the WFMU studios this past February. Afrocubism packs an impressive amount of international talent onto one stage, featuring Eliades Ochoa of Buena Vista Social Club and master Kora player Toumani Diabate backed by the finest musicians Mali and Cuba have to offer. Australian instrumental rockers Dirty Three have graciously allowed us to post their full set, including the hillariously foul banter between songs that we couldn't play on the radio. The Field's Axel Willner has been a mainstay of the Kompakt roster since 2004 and we've got the last two numbers from his mind-expanding set this Summer. The Pop Group are still going strong after transforming post-punk in the late '70s, represented here by five selections from their genre-bending set. This batch finishes strong with a sunny performance from experimental man of mystery James Ferraro

If you missed the first batch of Primavera 2012 uploads you can find the write up here, and the whole collection here.

Primavera Sound 2012 MP3 Collection, Pt. 1

WFMU returned to Barcelona in early June for yet another fantastic festival from the folks at Primavera Sound. As always, the line-up is curated with a freeform mentality, bringing a diverse array of artists spanning multiple genres and generations. We've had a few weeks now to recoup from our sleepless broadcast coverage of the festival [playlists here and here] and we're excited to present our first batch of downloadable artist-approved live recordings! 
 
Part 1 begins with:
 
 
Brooklyn's Obits are no strangers to the Free Music Archive, and they've taken the time to remaster this recording of their Primavera performance just for the FMA. It sounds great! Seattle's Mudhoney inspired heaps of Grunge rockers with their early singles on Sub Pop in the late eighties. Now they're back and still kicking ass - don't miss their set, a fan favorite! Despite multiple attempts from Michael Gira (pictured above) over the years to slip obsenities into our Primavera broadcast, our FCC dump button still got the better of him. For our troubles, he let us share a song from his excellent solo performance in Barcelona. Olympia's Milk Music visited the WFMU studios on Brian Turner's show last Summer (session here). This Summer we caught up with them in sunny Spain for some afternoon tunage on the Mediterranean (pictured at Left). Liturgy's brand of "transcendental black metal" gave way to the hypnotically buiding "Generation" and finally, The Men, who headlined our show at SXSW, offer another sampling of their post-punk stylings with a few new songs sprinkled in. 
 
Take a look at the Primavera Sound 2012 Collection for all of the livesets uploaded to date, and be sure to check back in the next couple weeks as we continue to upload more and more great sets from this year's festival. Below you'll find some highlights from our first batch...

Ganglians Live at Primavera Sound Festival 2010

I've previously expressed my love for Sacramento, and have attempted to explain why so many great bands have risen from CA's capital, so I will restrain myself from repetition. I will say that it was amazing to stand in the midst of a crowd of a few thousand people at the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona last month to see a little Sacto fuzz pop band get some major love.

Ganglians are one of many bands who belong to the reverb-worship cult, but unlike many, they do not employ the effect to mask tonedeaf vocals. On the contrary, these fellahs actually harmonize.

Comparisons have already been made to the Beach Boys (for those vocal harmonies) and Animal Collective (layered euphoric pop with cheap keyboard effects). Ganglians manage to create honest, lo-fi psych-pop songs at an effortlessly loping and patient pace, a pace that can only be achieved by folks who are used to driving a lot over flat terrain on sunny days.

We'd like to apologize to drummer Alex's mom who missed WFMU's live broadcast of Ganglians' set due to some last minute schedule shuffling on our end (we found out that she missed it via WFMU's playlist comments and felt bad about it). Sorry Alex's mom! Listen to the whole set here.
