Am I the only one?

On a better note, Kate Miller Heidke was incredible.

Thoughts?

Yeah, and then just when I thought "OK, I can make my young ears adjust to this" she starts screaming into the mic at the top of her lungs. This is a style of music? I don't get it.

they should have just put an ipod on stage, the guitarist was doing nothing and the girl was just screaming.

The lead singer's sexual appeal notwithstanding, this is a band I whose music I will be enjoying from a purely studio recording standpoint.

The second she started doing that high pitched yelp into the microphone is when I walked away.


AND YES. Kate Miller Heidke was fucking amazing. Perfect way to start the weekend. I feel bad for whoever missed that set.

Yea, she kinda isn't as charming live. Like a poor man's ATR.
The reason the album is enjoyed is her singing is unfazed by the overlly loud music. Its an interesting mix, but not for everybody.

Earplugs were not designed to withstand this kind of abuse. I've heard jackhammers that are more forgiving than Sleigh Bells live

I almost missed her too, and then I was like "what the heck, this is what Coachella is all about, taking a chance on music you've never heard before". Very glad I stayed.

Sorry to jump on the Kenado, but it cracks me up that people think these guys are SOOOOO LOUD. It's like Atari Teenage Riot Lite. Fun stuff, but it's all been done before, and better.

To say that there are louder things out there doesn't change the fact that Sleigh Bells was too loud and not the good kind. See thats the main problem. It would be a little more bearable if they weren't plain bad live. The woman can't sing. I was there. Her voice is not melodious or charmingly styled, or anything. Its just loud.

Do you people "cacophonous" means "loud"? I was there too...not for very long because I didn't really care for it either. It wasn't particularly loud, at least not from where I was standing. "Loud" is a measurement of SPLs. You could take the most beautiful music in the world and amplify it to the point of pain.

More is seldom better. In this case the object in question being sound.

Take my favorite music for instance, (insert band), sure, I love them but that doesn't mean I'll turn them up so loud my ears bleed. Thats silly. And so are Sleigh Bells. Go ahead. please try and flame me. As you can see these other morons are doing a fine job. It entertains us.
