The Hellen Hollins Singers- Consolation (Nicolas Jaar Edit)

Go Chile!!!

Nicolas Jaar has offered, through his Other People record people, a new edit of the Helen Hollins Singers' gospel and 80's song "Consolation". Two days ago Jaar tweeted that if Chile won their World Cup game against Brazil, he'd share a new track. Chile eventually lost the game (damn!!) but he decided to let go a new edit anyways.. and with the proper name "Consolation".

Although, there's only two stages open on Thurday, June 5, the line-up is quite impressive. The Portuguese group Os Da Cidade will officialy open the festivities at the primary stage while the Super Bock stage will be open by the Brazilian Rodrigo Amarante. Sky Ferreira, Haim and Jagwar Ma are a must see, but Caetano Veloso and Kendrick Lamar are the stars of the day.

Black Emperor  (22:25, ATP) or Pixies (22:35, NOS); John Wizards (00:00, Pitchfork); Darkside (01:30, Pitchfork); Todd Terje (02:55, Pitchfork). If at this time you still have some strengh, check Bicep too..

Last day of Primavera Sound, another day of hard decisions.. We will definitively check You Can't Win Charlie Brown (17:55, NOS); Neutral Milk Hotel (20:00, NOS); Mas Ysa (21:05, Pitchfork); John Grant (21:25, Super Bock); The National (22:30, NOS); Charles Bradley (23:00, ATP); St. Vincent (00:10, Super Bock); Glasser (01:30, Pitchfork); Ty Segall (01:55, ATP) and Pional at the Pitchfork stage to close 2014's edition of Primavera Sound. The weather forecast is not the best, so don't forget to bring a jacket and some wellies.
