It will come as no shock to the occasional brokenbranches reader that I rather enjoy the yearly festival expedition, mostly to Lowlands. This year is no different. And while the brokenbranches blog has been deceptively, and even disturbingly quiet, I have been using the medium of twitter to harass my unsuspecting followers with daily Lowlands tweets.

However, I felt bad for abandoning my much beloved blog for this new fangled twitterazzi business, and so from now on there will also be a little daily update here. Just to warn you: 90% is bound to be Lowlands related….

As I’ve already been counting down to Lowlands for a good three weeks with a video a day, here’s a rediculous list of tunes I’ve been assimilating into my cerebral archives so far.
