Report: Roadburn 2022 (Day 4)

As always the last day of a festival feels somewhat bittersweet. It has this greatness of having seen (and waiting to see) some amazing performances, and the blues coming with the realization that everything will come to an end in a mere few hours. Everyone will have to get back to their daily lives and [...]

The third day began with Midwife, the slow melodies and velvety voice helping to gently transition into festival mood while watching the artist plays her guitar and sing attached to a phone handset mic that gives this distinct vocal sound.
