Colour Me Unexcited: Laneway 2014

I had a reminder in my calendar set to go off 15 minutes before the Auckland Laneway 2014 annoucement. However, twitter was on fire with the line-up well before that.

For me, it felt like a balloon deflating. I had high hopes for at least one big band that would make me swoon...

Don't get me wrong, the line-up isn't bad. It's just not all for me. There are bands I know. A couple I even used tracks for various mixed-tapes... But with such an amazing (IMO) Big Day Out 2014 line-up (3 huge headlining acts), I'm not sure I want to part with my money...

This may all change. I've got some listening to do before Monday 27 January 2014.

Here is the line-up. I've highlighted bands I am interested in:

CHVRCHES
Danny Brown
Daughter
Doprah
Frightened Rabbit
Ghost Wave
Haim
Jamie xx
James Blake
Jagwar Ma

Kurt Vile
Lorde
Earl Sweatshirt
Run The Jewels
Mount Kimbie
Parquet Courts
PCP Eagles
Rackets
Savages
The Jezabels
Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Vance Joy
Watercolours
XXYYXX
Youth Lagoon

At a stretch I'd check out Lorde (good on her!), and UMO
