Before My Bloody Valentine performed, screens on the sides of the stage encouraged fans to pick up complimentary pairs of earplugs. It was not an idle warning: My Bloody Valentine was the loudest band I heard perform at the main stage all weekend, though a friend insists that The Melvins were louder.

Shortly after the band’s eagerly awaited m b v was released this year, I recall reading that after blowing out a few amps and multiple bouts of tinnitus, My Bloody Valentine was never quite able to fully re-create the Loveless tones in concert. Most of last night’s songs sounded a little different, notably “Only Shallow,” but the variances in guitar tones kept things interesting. Bilinda Butcher’s voice still sounds the same and Kevin Shields still creates the swirling guitar sounds by using countless effects pedals.

The band performed quite a few Loveless tracks, with “When You Sleep” being an early stand out track. m b v’s “New You” followed, once again showing off the band’s digital effect skills. Even though m b v was released over two decades after Loveless, the band’s old and new material meshed together seamlessly. [Phoenix New Times]

LA’s two-day FYF Fest wrapped up on Sunday (8/25) with one of the few US appearances of 2013 from shoegaze legends My Bloody Valentine (who unfortunately didn’t allow photographers), the continuously more psychedelic MGMT, and a mix of metal (Baroness, The Melvins), hardcore (Touche Amore), dream pop (Beach House, Washed Out), garage rock (The Orwells, Mikal Cronin) and more. In this post, we’ve got shots of MGMT, Beach House, Baroness, and Washed Out, plus Solange, Kurt Vile, Yo La Tengo, Chelsea Wolfe (who is currently streaming her new album), and more.
