Soupcans - Nice Nife

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. Soupcans are well known for their vibe — spasmodic noisebursts and a sense of creeping menace — but this set was noteworthy for being one of the best sounding 'Cans outings I can remember. Perhaps still laser-focused with the recent Soft Party out of their systems — or maybe there's something in the water.
