Yellow Swans

freedys.jpgTortoise played at Neumo’s on Tuesday night. They were underwhleming. I wanted more charisma or inventiveness. Something was lacking.

Yellow Swans played before Tortoise. They were wonderful. A blistering wall of noise — punctuated with enough melody to make listening enjoyable. It was certainly not pop music. But it was rewarding in a different way. I had to concentrate on the music — rather than enjoying it in the more emotional way that you enjoy a pop song.

Plus it was just cool to watch the disorder.
