Outside Lands 2014 will be headlined by Kanye West, The Killers and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.
Possibly the only major festival where you can enjoy fine gourmet cuisine while rocking out to an eclectic variety of international artists, Outside Lands has now unveiled the 2014 line-up as it prepares to return to San Francisco this August.
We just can't express our excitement enough at the newly revealed line-up for Outside Lands this year. Topping the bill are the likes of Kanye West, The Killers and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers; three very different artists which see the latter become the first act ever to headline twice following their incredible set in 2013. Now in its seventh year, Outside Lands are showing signs of development every single summer, and at much benefit for the city with a percentage of every ticket sale going to San Francisco's Recreation and Park Department.
Phosphorescent, the solo project of Matthew Houck, seemed to have established a comfortable grounding in the country tinged alt- rock genre, receiving critical acclaim with releases such as 2009's 'Willie' and its follow up 'Here's to Taking It Easy'. However, in his latest effort, 'Muchacho', a distinct change immediately becomes apparent.
The opening track, 'Sun, Arise! An Invocation, An Introduction', begins with Kraftwerk-esque arpeggios and a deep reverberating bass line, hinting at a move towards a synthesized, electronic form of instrumentation. As you're about to check if this is actually Phosphorescent's new album, Houck's reassuring vocals join the mix and stability is restored. 'Song for Zula' is the album's finest moment, striking a perfect balance between the new found electronic, almost ambient instrumentation and the delicate, heartfelt vocals with which Phosphorescent made his name.
Programmed, structured beats are combined with sprawling, emotional lyrics whilst string arrangements echo throughout.
