Pitchfork Music Festival 2012: Sunday

By Andrew Hertzberg

Wrapping up my account of "Pitchfork Music Festival With The Social Media I Would Have Posted If I Had Internet Access," below are my thoughts from Sunday. If you missed the posts for the first two days of the fest, you can check out Friday's here and Saturday's here. Also stay tuned for a recap of the entire fest coming shortly.

A Lull
The Oh Sees
My view for Kendrick Lamar
King Krule
King Krule I actually want to devote a few words to since I know few people will. Formerly known as Zoo Kid, the London based band is the brainchild of Archy Marshall, who’s obtuse chords backed by complex drumming and all-over-the-place basslines make me yearn for the days when there was still jazz at Pitchfork. Don’t let Marshall’s surprisingly low voice trick you: they are obviously a young band (the backing guitarist was wearing a Billabong shirt), but certainly a couple decades of potential. Technical difficulties marred the end of the set, and competing with Beach House is no easy task, but the four guys never got frustrated and just seemed content to play to an audience they knew appreciated them back.
