Cage The Elephant – ‘Tell Me I’m Pretty’ [Review]

Cage The Elephant - Tell Me I'm Pretty

Rock’n’roll, garage rock, psychedelic rock, alternative rock – call it what you like, throw a rock today and you might well hit someone in a soundalike, dime-a-dozen band matching one of those descriptions. They look the same, sound (almost) the same, pose the same way in pictures – and they’ve occupied the “wrong side of the tracks” position in the mainstream for over a decade.

Few things in life feel as good as immersing yourself in something you love. Diving deep into awesomeness, allowing the world’s worries to slip away, replacing baggage with better things. Escaping.

2000 Trees Festival are letting you loose on their stage this year. What can the curious expect from your set?

I know right? Idiots!

So basically Jurassic Pop pride ourselves on bringing a lo-fi set full of brazen dinosaur enthusiasm, pop hooks, and every lyric carefully crafted about Jurassic Park. There will be Read more…
