Odd Future

Out of the 3 days, 45 acts and blazing hot humid summer weather the biggest takeaway memory of the Pitchfork Music Festival was Los Angeles hip-hop group OFWGKTA (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All).

I can't figure out what I really think of them or their music, but their stage presence, personality and swagger won them the entire weekend.

If unfamiliar, I suggest you read everything New York Times Pop Critic Jon Caramanica has written about them...

"There were pieces of the Beastie Boys, MF Doom, the Sex Pistols and more in its act, and yet it felt like something new, in no one’s shadow." (the final sentence of Carmanica's Pitchfork Music Festival review)
