Finestkind of 2011

This year a bunch of us Finestkinders (20 in all) went to End of the Road Festival and dance we did to Tinariwen, Wooden Shjips. Lykke Li, Leisure Society… The rain stayed away, other than a shower on the last night. Thanks to the tip from Malcom of Rough Trade, we checked out Lanterns on The Lake, amazing and the album is beautiful too; Laura Marling was better than her new LP.

Other faves of the finest crowd was M Ward, Willy Mason, Beirut, I liked Black Angels from last year’s finestkind… Great fun.
