Electric Picnic 2010 - MNDR
Cosby stage, Friday 3rd September, 6.30pm
Describe in a tweet: ATL swoons, EP shrugs.
What happened: Weird one this. MNDR has worked with Yeah Yeah Yeahs and sings on the (superb) recent Mark Ronson single. Yet no one seems to care.
Electric Dreams: She's brilliant and ATL gradually falls in love. Ludicrously cool in leopard skin leggings and enormous white glasses, MDNR's singing over quirky electro and throwing herself about the stage. Queen of the scenesters she may well be, but what's not to love? It's just her up there - triggering backing tracks and hitting the odd sample in to keep busy. Mostly she dances like a short circuiting, nerdy sleazeball, which ATL enjoys very much.
Ants at a Picnic: There's hardly anyone here. As previously pointed out, no one seems to care.
Electric Picnic rating: 8/10
