Benicàssim Festival, Valencia, SpainFIVE MORE ADDITIONS TO THE FIB BENICASSIM FESTIVAL

Joining the already announced Arctic Moneys, The Strokes and Brandon Flowers are Plan B, James Murphy, The Joy Formidable, Antònia Font and Indienella!

PLAN B – Benjamin Paul Ballance-Grew, aka Plan B, has published two albums: “Who Needs Actions When You Got Words” (2006) and “The Defamation of Strickland Banks” (2010). The first album is Hip Hop and the second, Soul. The stylistic jump – Gin this case, going back in time-, just shows that Plan B is a composer and interpreter of great talent. Smokey Robinson, Michael Jackson and Marvin Gaye all soar throughout “The Defamation of Strickland Banks”, the work that has definitely placed him number 1 on British rankings.

JAMES MURPHY – James Murphy has revolutionized pop music in general and electronic music more particularly for years. He’s been the head of the highly influential label DFA on one hand and frontman of volcanic LCD Soundsystem on the other. Unfortunately, Murphy has recently decided to end the NY combo’s career after a decade agitating dance floors and a discography full of great findings and unrepeatable moments that have already become an important part of Music history.

THE JOY FORMIDABLE – The highly demanded trio from Wales (based in London) started their career with the publication of ‘A Balloon Called Moaning’ (2008). This mini Lp with 8 songs ended up awakening the interest of well known British and International publications. Their 90’s rock songs mixed in with a frenetic, epic and popular touch led them to sign with Canvasback Music/Atlantic records and work with mixer and producer Rich Costey (Foo Fighters, Muse, Glasvegas)

ANTÒNIA FONT – The origins of the band from Mallorca go back to 1997 when they published a demo with four songs with which they toured around the Island’s bars. From there on, they went to publishing their first LP, “Antònia Font” (1999), which would define their particular style that lies somewhere between the fantastic and domestic; alternating between journeys to made up worlds and the most mundane routines, with the special touch that Catalan language adds to them

INDIENELLA – Sofía Pedreira (vocals and bass) and Luis Mayo (vocals and guitar) formed Indienella in Gijón (Spain) in 2005. Their first demo had an important impact in Internet as well as radio and nationally held contests. Their music sounds like a lo-fi minimalist garage very much in line with that of TV personalities
