Artist: Beliefs

Recorded at The Garrison (Wavelength Music Festival 16 – Night 2), February 13, 2016.

Beliefs - Ghosts

Wavelength's sixteenth anniversary festival was a little less adventurous than last year's sesquidecade spectacular. For the first time in recent memory, the festival settled into one home base for three nights (along with one daytime excursion off-site) and the programming eschewed retrospective turns for a future-focused weekend, daring audiences to invest in the musical here-and-now. The festival's middle night saw the most rock action and the biggest crowd, packed in on a cold night to get sweaty. It's been a little while since I saw Beliefs — not since their sophomore Leaper album had dropped, consolidating some of the new songs that had been building up in their setlist for a while now. This time out, there were a couple familiar faces on stage stepping into the band, including Vallens' Robyn Phillips on guit and Fake Palms' Michael Le Riche on bass, supporting mainstays Jesse Crowe and Josh Korody. As always, though, there was a padded wall of glorious guitar sounds.
