The festival will be headlined by
The Black Keys . The US duo, made up of guitarist
Dan Auerbach and drummer
Patrick Charney , will perform their new album
Turn Blue for the first time in public and will go over their full repertoire, which ranges from the pure blues-rock of their beginnings to the more sophisticated styles that have emerged since their paths crossed with producer,
Danger Mouse . With his help, they have added soul and other herbs and spices to a sound that has since received public acclaim and numerous of
Grammy awards for the albums, Brothers and El Camino.
Special mention should be made of The Replacements, whose presence in the festival is preceded by their reputation as key players in alternative rock. Formed in Minneapolis in 1979 by guitarist and singer Paul Westerberg, they gained success in the 80s with a series of albums – now classics – like Let It Be and Pleased to Meet Me. They mixed influences from The Rolling Stones and Faces with the punk-rock energy of Ramones and The Clash in songs characterised by strong guitar performance and the raspy voice of their frontman – not to forget some heart-breaking ballads. Song titles such as Alex Chilton showed who their influencers were. Their performances in Barcelona and Porto will be the first in a short European tour.
The Strokes and Interpol, survivors of the New York punk-rock scene, are also worth mentioning. Interpol and along with it, Paul Banks, will be presenting the sinister epic El Pintor not once but twice: first in a small concert at Apolo and then at a grand event at El Fòrum.
The Strokes will also be celebrating the festival’s fifteenth anniversary and showing us if their live performances still have the guts of the days of Is This It or if their sound has softened and synthesised, as their latest disc Comedown Machine would indicate. Singer Julian Casablancas will also be performing in his side project The Voidz.
The presence of Spiritualized testifies to the festival’s loyalty to the groups it supports. The space-rock of Jason Pierce’s band forms part of Primavera Sound’s musical backbone – as does the indie pop of Belle & Sebastian, the riot grrrl punk of Sleater-Kinney and the mix of psychedelic rock and shoegaze of the newly reborn Ride, whose performance will be the only one on Spanish soil.
Among the contemporary indie rock attractions is Unkown Mortal Orchestra: a New Zealander band led by guitar virtuoso, composer and singer Ruban Nielson. They will be presenting their brilliant third album Multi-Love – released this week. Another indie shining-light is Perfume Genius, stage name of Seattle singer-songwriter Mike Hadreas. Also with three albums under his belt, his melancholic chamber pop permeates the highly emotional songs that he uses to denounce homophobia. Just as refined is the indie rock of multi-instrumentalist and singer Shara Worden’s project: My Brightest Diamond.
A special paragraph should be dedicated to Patti Smith, the great punk-rock muse, who will once again be centre-stage with her band, which continues to include the no less legendary Lenny Kaye (guitar) and Jay Dee Daugherty (drums), with whom she will be reproducing the influential album Hoses (Friday) as well as giving a spoken word performance (Saturday).
