Doomsquad - Ice Storm

You can read my general notes on Camp Wavelength here. Looking totally at home on a big festival stage, this is still the sort of band that will pause before playing to light some incense sticks and push them into the grass in front of the stage. (This small-scale gesture, sadly, was quickly obviated by the crew of photographers that descended on the stage moments later, trampling them into the turf.) Playing big, sweeping songs that felt right at home without walls to contain them, Doomsquad could only fit five tracks in their forty minutes on stage, including this wonderfully-sprawling set-opener from their recent Pageantry Suite EP — very suited to grooving a bit with the feel of the earth under your feet.
