The Dorset festival returns with a varied mix of americana, folk, indie and psychedelia.
The first acts have been announced for this year's End Of The Road Festival in Dorset. The end of summer bash will host headliners Father John Misty and Mac De Marco, who top an eclectic bill which includes the multi-Grammy award winning singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams, indie troupers Real Estate, Scottish rockers The Jesus And Mary Chain, Malian husband and wife duo Amadou & Mariam, glam rock protégés The Lemon Twigs, and much more.
Mac De Marco's slot will be his only UK festival appearance this year, while Father John Misty is set to make his UK festival headline debut at the event. Both acts are set to release new material this year, with Father John Misty's Pure Comedy set for release in April, and De Marco's This Old Dog due to come out in May. The final headliner is yet to be announced. Last year saw Joanna Newsom, Cat Power and Animal Collective head the event.

In the '70s, 'Brian and Michael' signified beards, flat caps and 'Matchstalk Men and Matchstalk Cats and Dogs.' In 2016, Brian and Michael means precocious teenage New Yorkers, the D'Addario brothers. This, their debut album on 4AD, is a clear marker of their significant instrumental talent and their extensive musical knowledge. A lot of these songs were written two years ago; all most of us composed at seventeen or fifteen was the occasional turgid, navel-gazing poem. Much as the D'Addarios are the future, the album takes us back to the '70s and into in an ambitious, noisy madhouse of genres.
Here's the thing, though. You know when you go to one of those eateries where you pay up front and eat gutloads of whatever you fancy? You get excited. You amass things on a plate that don't necessarily go, but you just want them? You can't contain yourself. You feel a tad bilious by the end. That's how Do Hollywood feels. It begins sunnily, with a bit of 'Beach Boys meet Mud' doo-wop, and yet by track two, the cartoonish 'Those Days Is Comin', we're already into the song probably deemed too nuts by the Beatles for Sgt Pepper. Track three, the palpably daft 'Haroomata' morphs from prog guitar and keyboards into a gaudy circus theme, during which we expect one brother to ride in on a wonky-wheeled car, dressed as Rococo the Clown.
Lead single and misfit anthem, 'These Words' shows the brothers at their coherent best, "Why should I have to follow you to know just who I am?" raising the question whether they are magpies or curating connoisseurs when it comes to their music. Pure Ben Folds though it is, it will surely live longest in our memories. There's also a madcap, Muppet-like xylophone solo (naturally). 'As Long As We're Together' gives us a lo-fi White Stripes sound, with layers of fuzzed distortion, crazed shouting and a keyboard solo that sounds like Sweep from The Sooty Show being murdered.
