We're back at Longitude for super Sunday with a report on a few of the day's highlights. Part one includes, Rusangano Family, Rationale, Courtney Barnett and Father John Misty.
Limerick’s Rusangano Family hit the stage running, for their Sunday afternoon set at Longitude. It was like they were headlining the whole shebang.
MuRli, God Knows and mynameisjOhn whipped the tent into a frenzy with a set that was heavy on tracks from their excellent debut Let The Dead Bury The Dead.The level of lyrical and literal gymnastics on display was a bit gobsmacking and by mid-set God Knows had given up on the stage, vaulted the barrier and was delivering his rhymes from the middle of the crowd. Having solidifyied their reputation as one of the island’s most exciting live acts, Rusangoano Family will be moving up the bill at future festivals –and fast.
Next up was Rationale at the Whelan's Stage, the London-based producer’s brand of silky soul funk a perfect accompaniment to those seeking shelter from the blazing sun. It has to be said that the man has an incredible voice, and the crowd were quickly won over and grooving along to the excellent backing band.
