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.
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.

A new musical group orbits Barcelona with a proposal that wouldn't let you down. La Piccola Orchestra Gagarin lives up to its name in every way. It's small because there are only three players, but it sounds like an original orchestra (with instruments tuned to that point). And "Gagarin" is a nod to history's first cosmonaut launched into space, with whom they share the same uncertainty when they go up on stage, never rehearsed.
This trio of the Italian Paolo Angeli (Sardinian prepared guitar), the Russian Sasha Agranov (cello) and Catalan Oriol Roca (drums) has released the album Platos Combinados - "Mixed Dishes" - which is a true pleasure. All improvised on the spot, by the way, and characterized by creative freedom with no additives.
Who knows which planet they are on looking to for inspiration? But if you want a clue, know that their style is as much pop art as free jazz, indie and folk music of Sardinia.
