Live Photos: I'll Be Your Mirror Melbourne - My Bloody Valentine, Swans + More

Tuesday 19th February, 2013 9:57AM

Over the weekend we crossed the ditch for All Tomorrow's Parties' second outing in Australia and our first ATP experience. This time they threw one of their I'll Be Your Mirror festivals 13km out of Melbourne's CBD.  Curated by themselves and seminal Australian band The Drones,  we went to the first day curated by ATP with the recently reformed my bloody valentine headlining.

There was no doubt that mbv were the most anticipated act of the day but they didn't end up being our highlight. No for us that went to Swans - one of the most intense and menacing live acts we've ever seen. My Bloody Valentine's performance was a little perplexing, they appeared to suffer from a bad mix initially which left the crowd in a confused silence between songs - their set did improve as it progressed. Opening act Strangers From Now On made a lasting impression, it was great to catch locals The Dead C and HTRK were stunning.

Not only lucky enough to attend the festival, we were also granted a photo pass to capture the day - head over here to check out our pictures of the aforementioned acts as well as Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Thee Oh Sees, Sleepy Sun, New War and Standish/Carlyon.
