The Key of Drone

Posted by Jonathan Zwickel

Hypatia Lake is an extremely well-adjusted band. I don't mean that they make sure to call their moms every Sunday and navigate post-modern ennui with stylish aplomb (though maybe they do), but rather that they balance drone and melody in an extremely tuneful, accessible way.

One guitarist lead and another was dedicated to jagged squalls and slow, heavy washes of feedback. Playing the Rainier Stage to several hundred people (the crowd thickens as the hours pass), they made dissonance sound soothing and intricate interplay look easy. That's a good festival band.

Man Plus are on the Stockhouse Stage and sound really good. Back to more sunshine and music.
