Sunday’s recap below…
In contrast to Saturday’s torrential downpours, emergency weather evacuation, and general air of hecticness, Sunday floated by, with cooler temperatures and even occasional breeziness, to ease out of three long festival days.
1:30 p.m. @ The Sony Stage: Poliça Swaying in the sun to Poliça’s dreamy experimental pop was a nice start to the day, as they played through a set mostly made of songs from their debut album, Give You The Ghost: “Dark Star,” “Happy Be Fine,” “Lay Your Cards Out,” “Wandering Star.” The Minneapolis group — a mix of R&B, psychedelica, and electronic pop — has been around for less than a year. But front-woman Channy Leaneagh is an interesting, confident performer — singing and twitching in a way that’s subdued but bold. Her lyrics are mostly inaudible, layered and delayed, pushed forward by two drummers. Even so, on the last song the band performed Sunday afternoon, “Leading To Death,” Leaneagh’s head snaps and punches carried her experimental pop jam like it was a protest song. If it’s hard to tell what she’s talking about, you know she means it.
