Loji - Proof

Since 2009, the summer Wavelength festival has been a highlight of the season, slowing down the hectic "festival experience" to an Island pace and making the whole thing as much about the vibe and the location as the (always well-curated) music. When this spring's floods shut the Island down, there was a ripple of apprehension from many quarters at the loss of favourite summer hangs, culminating in the festival decamping to the mainland. The WL crew did an excellent job in emulating the festival experience in the outdoor/daytime portion, but it was harder to feel the same sense of relaxation and freedom in a bar.

Indeed, heading into The Garrison, there was a vibe more like February's anniversary festival than August's Island excursion, a feeling that lingered through a night of groove-friendly programming. At least to start things off there was a home-y, DIY feel with Wavelength fixture Marko Cindric onstage with Sam Earle in this smooth-wiggling duo. Dressed in black (but, y'know, saucy see-through black) the pair were always moving and bopping even as they attended to their knobs and dials.

* Thanks to the band for passing along the title to this one!
