Hands down. The one gig I look forward to the absolute most at SPOT Festival in Aarhus this week, 1-4 May is the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. This match-up made in heaven, Simon of When Saints Go Machine and San Diego’s NOTE The Rydah. The two have been making music together for quite a while and it’s a shame to admit they flew under the Poule’s radar up until now. They already released two great EPs a few years ago and now, at this year’s SPOT the duo will showcase some of their material – and sweet baby jesus, attached is On The Hunt off their 2012 EP Superconductor – one of the best songs to cross the Poule’s coop this year. Absolutely stellar track.
And most excitingly, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen will begin their concert with a short film about their collaboration in the months leading up to SPOT, produced by KnockKnock. The duo started making music together online in 2007, but they did not meet in a studio until 2012 – and you know Team Poule loves a good short film documentary. Watch the hysterical trailer, here.
