Apparently some old geezers turned up at Copacabana beach in Rio and thrashed around in front of 1.5 million people.

The Donut? Meh. I'll stick to post-rock noodlings:

- Explosions in the Sky: least likely Austin, Texas sounding band you could imagine - Mogwai in a minor key and with shriller guitars;

- Labradford: a cross between the Boards of Canada, 1950s futurism and elevator music; and

- the Battles: the "new" post-rock supergroup sounding similar to the much lamented (around these parts) Don Caballero, math-rockers from Pittsburgh who shook the Black Cat club to its foundations back in about 1999 or so.
