FYF Fest 2013 presents yet more new acts for its 10th annual weekend this August including comedians Doug Benson, Brett Gelman and Karen Kilgariff.
FYF is an alternative music festival spread over two days - this year, August 25th and 26th - at the LA State Historic Park. This summer we'll see no doubt spectacular headline sets from New Yorkers the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Dublin rockers My Bloody Valentine, as well as performances from MGMT, Devendra Banhart, Les Savy Fav, Holy Ghost!, Deerhunter, New Jersey's Yo La Tengo, chillwave producer Toro Y Moi, the chart hitting Kurt Vile & the Violators and Californian duo Foxygen.
Just announced are some equally brilliant comedy acts (as if you weren't going to have a massive laugh anyway) from the likes of 'Home Movies' writer Brendon Small, 'The League' star Paul Scheer with Rob Huebel, 'Eagleheart' comedian Brett Gelman and former 'Last Comic Standing' contestant Doug Benson.

Les Savy Fav
Let's Stay Friends
Label - Wichita
There's a swathe of North American indie bands, like Modest Mouse, Fiery Furnaces and Arcade Fire that you should really be listening to. To that list, New York's Les Savy Fav have quietly been adding their own name, through great records, great punk attitude and great (sometimes scary) live shows. Think Denmark's Figurines (and probably, therefore, The Cure) demolishing Band of Horses. Guest guitarist Andrew Reuland helps the band towards a nice Built To Spill sophistication, and the sound of the album does reach new levels of thrilling rock majesty. In fact, while there's no single musical theme running through Let's Stay Friends, the lyrical theme is an exploration of what it means to stay true while all around you goes nuts. This is punk, but played well - it's the Kaiser Chiefs with Pistols and Arctics character - and the spirit of the 70s is alive and well throughout. Let's Stay Friends is by some distance Les Savy Fav's best record.
