Place Jungle alongside Rudimental with less electronic mayhem but better beats. Josh Lloyd-Watson is as close to focal point as they have, and he takes well to the position, but this is a collective buzz and the next album should tell the story. Meanwhile, great to see them and free of charge.
I am not sure what is catching your eye here, but I know what I see: THE TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND FREE CONCERT. What else: Jungle, the Carole King songs, always the Summer Recital Series is a must see, Whodini… and the 30th anniversary night looks fabulous.

Golden – Lady Antebellum – Golden – Moribund country song featuring Stevie Nicks who has too much life in her voice for this nasty little love song with weak rhymes and melody by numbers. Whatever happened to these guys? – C-
