Photos: ATP/Major Lazer/Van Dyke Parks

I had a busy weekend and for the first time in ages decided to take a bunch of photos. I used to take my camera everywhere, especially to shows. But then [warning: boring explanation ahead] I upgraded my lenses. Which was great (I have a Canon 16-35 2.8 and a Canon 70-200mm 2.8) but they are very heavy and I am pretty scrawny and lazy. Carrying around heavy gear really tires me out and gradually I stopped taking my camera out.

But I hope to get back in good habits and muscle up; here are some photos from the weekend.

Me and my friends, Alan and Odhran in Alexandra Palace…

And my friend Gerlin, from my perspective on the grassy hill…

My namesake, Anika performing at ATP:

Big Freedia -

More from ATP are here. After that I went to shoot Major Lazer at the Roundhouse -

Major Lazer really know how to put on a great show. More photos here.

So does this man! VAN DYKE PARKS -

Sleepy Hollow

One of my favourite Orby songs. It appears on ‘Orbisongs’. Gotta love Roy.

Peggy Sue have made a really great record! All those ties to Mumford and Marling and the UK ‘folk’ scene are completely irrelevant because they sound nothing like that. I reckon lumping them in with that lot is kind of like calling a wedding cake a cupcake. But anyway, lazy associations aside; they’ve made a terrific album which you can buy from Rough Trade.

Purity Ring / Belispeak

I love this track. I didn’t like the other Purity Ring tracks I had heard previously, but I’m into this.

Listen here.
