Powder Ridge Rock Festival – August, 1970


 
“The Powder Ridge Rock Festival was scheduled to be held July 31- August 2, 1970 in Middlefield, Connecticut. A legal injunction forced the event to be canceled, keeping the musicians away; but a crowd of 30,000 attendees arrived anyway, to find no food, no entertainment, no adequate plumbing, and at least seventy drug dealers. William Manchester wrote: “Powder Ridge was an accident waiting to happen, and it happened.” Volunteer doctor William Abruzzi declared a drug “crisis” on 1 August and said “Woodstock was a pale pot scene. This is a heavy hallucinogens scene.”

Before The Sun Sets – EP review

EP Artwork by KNOWNAIM.

‘Before the sun sets’ is the brand new EP from Stefan Melbourne, you may remember us posting a little piece on him earlier, which you can see here.

_______________________________________________________

At Dirt Cheap we usually seem to align ourselves to the Hip Hop/Electronic genres, however we can appreciate other genres too (honest!). I know little of the indie/acoustic/folk scenes however I will endeavour to describe and review the EP as best I can!

Even though this is not our usual thing, the EP has been on repeat in our office since we had it delivered last week! The four tracks work really well together and are definitely stylistically quite strong and distinctive. The sound is to me quite melancholic, though maybe that is the wrong word… possibly nostalgic is a better fit, Stefan’s lyrics make quite vivid pictures in my mind, almost cinematic in a way, and I would definitely say listening to the songs I can imagine them as the soundtrack to the penultimate scene in a movie.
