While we’re collecting our thoughts over Pinkpop and getting ready for most posts from that recent festival, here’s one of the highlights of another festival earlier this year.
Wall-of-Guitar/Psychmeisters Papir, who hail from Copenhagen Denmark, are a three piece instrumental band who won’t have you scrounging around looking for your Danish/English dictionary.
They have been characterized in numerous reviews as one of the best bands to come out of Denmark in a very long time. I would second that and extend their influence to include most of Europe.
Minus the vocals, they remind me of an early Ride, a band I consider landmark and legendary. And that’s good company to be in.
Tonight it’s a set from Papir at the Roadburn Festival in The Netherlands, recorded on April 11th of this year. As always, by the ever-present and ever-reliable VPRO and their rock station 3VOOR12 in Hilversum.
Play loud and forget what day it is.
