Posted at November 25th, 2015 | by Guest Writer | in

There are a lot of international acts performing at the NH7 Weekender this year which can prove to be pretty darn confusing when you have to plan your gig schedule. So to make it a little bit easier we have formed a list (this list excludes big names like Megadeth, The Wailers and Mark Ronson) of the Top 6 International Acts Not To Be Missed At The NH7 Weekender :

1. Mogwai
Mogwai is a Scottish post-rock band, formed in 1995 in Glasgow. The band typically composes lengthy guitar-based instrumental pieces featuring dynamic contrast, melodic bass guitar lines, and heavy use of distortion and effects. Their music is noted for the absence of lyrics for the most part. The band were for several years signed to renowned Glasgow indie label Chemikal Underground, and have been distributed by different labels such as Matador in the US and Play It Again Sam in the UK, but now use their own label Rock Action Records in the UK, and Sub Pop in North America.

He has worked with artists such as Erykah Badu, Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke.

Most of their recordings consist of instrumental duets on the classical guitar.

In 2010 they even performed at The White House for President Barack Obama.

Live the duo are joined by an interchanging cast of friends and musicians to bring their collective sound to the stage.

6. Acollective
Acollective is a 7-piece band and social movement, fronted by Roy Rieck and Idan Rabinovici. Their music is  a self-described mix of “boogied-folk, electronic-jazz and a Middle Eastern-bluesy twang.” Formed in 2008, the band’s early shows became a weekly cult gathering in Tel-Aviv, and they were soon playing sold-out shows – establishing a loyal fan-base and gaining critical acclaim and extensive airplay in Israel – all this without any support or plan of any sort.

Melancholia.

 

Breakapart :
A song about regrets and the past.
