This Michigan-based indie band springs forward with an upbeat garage pop. Led by Autumn Wetli, the tracks on “Just for Fools” focus in on personal experiences with past lovers without overdoing gloom and doom. Quite to the contrary, for example, “Kiss You” is all high energy pop.

The album is very much stream-of-consciousness with plenty of innuendo. So, listen carefully.

Festival Recap: This is Not a Love Song

FOALS LIVE at TINALS

FOALS LIVE at TINALS

By Kayla Flores

What a Festival! Taking place at the Paloma venue, in Nîmes this past weekend of June 3-5, 2016. Consisting of 3 days and nights of various international indie and rock groups, organic vendors, and great beers, this festival in the south of France truly is a great time. Compared to festivals in the United States, such as Coachella, Outside Lands, and Lollapalooza, TINALS can be ranked amongst them in terms of quality, music selection, and organization. I would say pricing was reasonably cheaper in comparison, but it is also a smaller event with bands performing in the later afternoon and nighttime. Saturday and Sunday had two groups play in the early afternoon inviting anyone to come listen, free of charge. The eco-friendly festival provided various activities such as flower headband crafts, games, Elvis ordaining weddings, even a ‘50s style hair cut for men. It was truly a unique experience. Below is a short recap of some of the bands that performed this weekend. Enjoy!


Friday, June 3

CHOCOLATE- Arriving a bit late due to traffic, Chocolate was the first band we got to enjoy on opening night! Not only did they really wail, with excellent guitar solos, Chocolate provides great energy, and the crowd was loving it.

FOALS- As one of the closing acts, Foals was probably one of the most popular bands that headlined the festival itself. With the crowd singing along, Foals really gave a great performance. With an excellent presence and production team, they put on a great show with the effects of color and light techniques.


Saturday, June 4

MY GREAT BLUE CADILLAC- One of the early afternoon acts, My Great Blue Cadillac was able to pull in festival goers with their intense sound. Arriving early, we enjoyed some beer awaiting the next group when My Great Blue Cadillac began with chants drawing in a crowd quickly. They really put out a lot of energy in their performance. Lead vocals alternating between the two members, Eddy and Louise, was energetic. Lyrical emotions were greatly executed in the performance. With alternating vocals, they also switched instruments (guitar and drums) effortlessly for each song, and their chemistry on stage allowed the dup to deliver a hauntingly kickass performance. Ending their act with Eddy smashing his drum sticks into the drum, while chanting their name he finished with destroying the guitar as well.

SHEER MAG- Another opening act, Sheer Mag really kept up the energy with the impending rain storm approaching and was able to keep the crowd. The early afternoon slot leaves for a guessing game of who’s who but they pulled a great crowd with their sound. Good vibes. Garage band feel with the energy of a closing group! Truly ‘party time, excellent’ as Wayne would say… Their ability to pull a crowd in the rain was remarkably reflective of their energy. Reminded me of summer rock shows in California. Positive energy all the way and great sound!

PALEHOUND- The band opened with a sultry whispering melodic and dramatic song. A huge crowd was awaiting prior and the American band killed it. Minor sound issues but the band was able to pull through. I would describe this band as a Rilo Kiley meets a garage heroin group. The band was truly thankful for the opportunity to be apart of the line up, and lead singer, Ellen Kempner even shared some debut creations, performing two songs solo.

LUSH-Raining in from the United Kingdom and performing on the main outdoor stage, Lush had great energy and even sang one song in French with the help of a translated lyric board.

DIRTY FENCES- This Brooklyn band is truly unique. With members who can really play their instruments, you can definitely hear the influences of the Ramones in their sound. Great energy!

PARCELS- Coming from England, Parcels truly is groovy-rock at its finest.

AIR- French electro-pop band was really a group that has created a sound that seduces your ears and forces you to sway to the beat. Featured on the soundtrack for “The Virgin Suicides”, they returned to touring and joined the TINALS lineup.

HER- One of my favorite performances of the weekend. Positive energy and a great dynamic between the two front mans. Alternating lead vocals, they could really hit some high notes. Engaged the crowd and got them dancing and singing along.

Sunday, June 5

STEVE GUNN BAND- As one of the openers for the festival was alive and soothing. Almost country rock and pulled in a great crowd with great the great weather

QUETZAL SNAKES- This band was psychedelic rock. French band who truly gave good vibes with their sound. With three guitars, one bass, and drums they started getting everyone’s head bobbing. Garage meets psychedelic they had an interesting sound…

METZ- Their performance had crowd surfers galore. This band really gave the crowd some energy!

PORCHES- With the use of synthesizers and folk guitar, Porches gave a soothing performance.

LUKE WINSLOW KING- This New Orleans blues band was a big hit in the early afternoon. The band really drew a crowd, getting everyone singing and dancing along. Bass guitarist was extremely engaging with the crowd and the band seemed to have just as much fun as the crowd.

PARQUET COURTS- A group from Texas, this group really pulls elements and the personality of iconic bands like Pavement with Some Strokes and Sonic Youth, you have Parquet Courts. Personally, I hear a similar sound to the band Cake, slow and mellow but they can rock out.

TORTOISE- A group of 6 individuals conquered the stage with their post-rock sound. Composed of two drums, two keyboards, and alternating guitars and various other instruments, void of vocals, they sure have an interesting sound.

BEACH HOUSE- Ending not only the night but the entire weekend with this dream pop, the electronic duo created magic. With amazing sound and lightening choreographed, Beach House suspended time.

Underlying greatness of this festival was its contributions to an eco-friendly cause. Each guest was given a coupon for a free goblet /day promoting the decrease in usage of cups per person (cost 1€ for cup) and its recycle bins located throughout the park. They had dry toilets which eliminated the usage of water and instead provided bags of hay to absorb the components and would later be used as manure. For food, they had various food trucks featuring vegetarian, vegan, and organic cuisines such as burgers, ‘Mexican’ food, falafel and more.
