Interview: At First Sight Festival – The Laurels
Sydney’s inaugural At First Sight festival launched at Carriageworks in Sydney on Saturday, pulling in an array of music fans and seemingly every vinyl lover – be they mild enthusiast or feverish addict – to throw their support behind independent record stores. Though the enormous record fair was certainly a main attraction, the live music was also a big calling card, with a great lineup of bands and DJs performing. Music Feeds was on ground for the whole show, and we got to talk to a bunch of the lovely people playing.
The Laurels graced us with their presence straight off the back of their run of US tour dates, not to mention their performance at Austin Psych Fest, which was curated by The Black Angels. We had chat about their tour, and with their 2012 album Plains now pushing a year old we also discussed new material from the band and when we can expect it.
