Electric Agenda creates a mobile friendly schedule for the Movement festival

http://electricagenda.com/

Surprisingly enough there doesn’t seem to be to many great ways to stay up on the festival schedule besides carrying around a paper version, or pinching and zooming the large, obnoxious pdf that every website seems to be displaying.

We were stoked to hear about the mobile friendly web app that www.electricagenda.com made to solve this. Check it out.

Laneway Festival Artist Profiles : The Movement/Ghostly Stage

Today we continue to profile the artists you will be seeing at St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival this Saturday at Meadow Brook Music Festival in Rochester Hills. Movement, Paxahau, and Ghostly International are three names synonymous with electronic music in the Detroit area and known elsewhere around the world for their high standard of quality when it comes to the artists they manage and work with. Ghostly International is actually based out of Ann Arbor, but has strong roots in Detroit working closely with Paxahau, the brains behind the Movement festival in Hart Plaza each May. The five acts on the Ghostly International label chosen for the stage at Laneway represent a full spectrum of electronic styles that fit effortlessly into the indie genres most of the artists at Laneway can be categorized in — think of their stage at Laneway as a miniature Movement.

Heathered Pearls

  • Taking the Movement/Ghostly Stage from 2:40-3:25 pm

Heathered Pearls is the alias of Ghostly International artist Jakub Alexander, who is not only a seasoned DJ, but also a record label founder in his own right with Moodgadget. Disco has always been an influence on Alexander’s style, as his first stint out of Ann Arbor was playing alongside Brooklyn disco duo Worst Friends. Listeners can hear influence from atmospheric rock, synth, and disco in the work of Heathered Pearls, a sure way to get the Movement/Ghostly Stage crowd in the mood without wearing them down right away.

 

 

Beacon

  • Taking the Movement/Ghostly Stage from 3:30-4:15 pm
beacon-band-entry-2012-064-580x384

Thunderous bass, R&B sexuality, and dark ambient electronics sound like an enticing and appropriate trifecta for a music festival, which is exactly what Brooklyn duo Beacon want to bring to the Movement/Ghostly Stage at Laneway. Thomas Mullarney III and Jacob Gossett were studying fine arts at the Pratt Institute and blending their two aesthetics together, created a sound that is one part smooth, and one part sinister. The Ways We Seperate is the latest release from Beacon on Ghostly International, come check them out at 3:30 to see how the songs translate on the stage.

 

 

Shigeto

  • Taking the Movement/Ghostly Stage from 4:20-5:10 pm
shigeto

Zachary Shigeto Saginaw goes by simply Shigeto, but the sounds he creates are anything but simplistic. The Ann Arbor-born Shigeto plays off of shades of jazz, hip-hop instrumentals, and layered melodies to create a vibrant style of electronic that triumphantly grows bigger as the music plays on (Shigeto translates to “to grow bigger”). Shigeto will provide listeners with a cool breeze of electronic in the early evening beginning at 4:45.

ADULT.

  • Taking the Movement/Ghostly Stage from 5:30-6:30 pm
adult-band-500x332

Detroit’s ADULT. have been called electropunk pioneers for good reason — they have been around since 1998, helping to shape the sound that punk rock creates when it fuses with drum machines and dark synths, which resonates with Detroit listeners and fuels their popularity in Europe. Adam Lee Miller and Nicola Kuperus have been married almost 15 years, and in their music as well as in their other art-world pursuits (film, painting, photography, etc.) they collaborate to explore every possible outlet for their creative visions. ADULT. will cast their spell on the crowd beginning at 5:30 on the Movement/Ghostly Stage.

 

 

Matthew Dear

  • Taking the Movement/Ghostly Stage from 6:50-7:50 pm

Matthew Dear is perhaps the most well-recognized artist on the Ghostly International label. Not only did he co-found the label with Sam Valenti, Matthew Dear has also collaborated and produced music for some of the most well-known artists in the contemporary indie & electronic genres today (The xx, Hot Chip, The Chemical Brothers, and The Postal Service to name a few). It comes as no surprise that he was chosen to headline the Movement/Ghostly Stage with his avant-pop sensibilities and affinity to hypnotize festival crowds with distinctive vocals and deep rhythms. Matthew Dear’s finale on the Ghostly/Movement Stage will be a set for electronic and indie lovers alike to come together and groove.

Laneway Makes Its Way to Michigan

Laneway

Back in 2004, two men by the name of Jerome Borazio and Danny Rogers were steadily booking several up-and-coming indie bands at St. Jerome’s Bar in the Caledonian Lane area of Melbourne, Australia.  The music started out inside of the bar during the summer month series, and after a request from Borazio and Rogers to the band The Avalanches, the music was taken into the street, closing down the lane and beginning the very first installment of the now internationally known St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival.  The spontaneous excitement and organization that was in the air over the very first Laneway in Melbourne is now coming to the United States for the first time, where hundreds of music fans looking to see what is happening in the contemporary indie music scene will come to Meadowbrook Music Festival in Rochester Hills, MI on September 14.

The size of the festivals, the locations and the way we encourage community all form part of the way in which the Laneway team strive to present an urban music experience like no other.

-St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival Philosophy Statement

The Laneway Festival began expanding throughout several cities in Australia beginning in 2006, including Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth, and now covers Singapore as well as the United States.  The announcement of the festival coming to Michigan came during Laneway’s party at the SXSW Festival in Austin, TX this past March. Not only does this mark the first time that Laneway has come to the United States, it also marks the first time that an Australian music festival has come to North America. When the curiosity began to buzz about why Laneway organizers chose the Detroit area as a sensible location for the festival, Danny Rogers shared that he believes “Detroit is having its rebirth and as Laneway continues to evolve, we can identify with a city that is continuing to evolve as well.”

Laneway has featured several artists vital to the contemporary indie music scene in their past lineups, including Yo La Tengo, Feist, Mumford & Sons, Blonde Redhead, and M83, among dozens of others. The Laneway Detroit lineup features co-headliners The National and Sigur Rós, both of whom released albums earlier in 2013 and are known for their grandiose live performances.  Rounding out the bill are other indie favorites Deerhunter and The Dismemberment Plan, as well as newly teamed Hip-Hop heavyweights Killer Mike and EL-P performing as Run The Jewels.  With a lineup that boasts several acts showcasing sub-genres under the indie music umbrella, festival attendees will get a chance to see some of the newer examples of artists who draw influence from Lo-Fi (Washed Out, Youth Lagoon), Electronica (CHVRCHES, Icona Pop, Charlie XCX), R&B (Solange), and Post-Punk (Savages).  At the end of June, Laneway organizers also announced that they would be adding a stage hosted by Detroit’s own Movement Electronic Music Festival/Paxahau, and Ann Arbor originals, electronic music label Ghostly International.  This new addition to the festival will feature 5 electronic artists on the Ghostly International label, including Matthew Dear, Adult., Beacon, Heathered Pearls, and Shigeto.

Meadowbrook Music Festival on the campus of Oakland University in Rochester Hills will feature four stages total for the September 14th festival; the Movement/Ghostly International stage, as well as two other stages which will be built on the grounds of Meadowbrook, and the main Meadowbrook amphitheatre itself. Specific set times and vendor names have yet to be announced, but festival organizers have promised that spaces will be dedicated to local food, drink, and merchandise vendors. For more information about getting to the festival, purchasing tickets ($79.50 in advance including parking fees, VIP package tickets for $199, and limited 4-packs for $64.50 per ticket are still available), and answers to other questions you may have, visit detroit.lanewayfestival.com.
