Manchester Orchestra

Nothing to do with the famous Halle, but five guys from Atlanta, Georgia. The comparison isn't entirely false, though, as they attempt to fuse emo angst with the epic guitar sound of, say, Muse without the bombast or even Band Of Susans. Unfortunately, they don't yet have anything to offer which goes beyond the pleasant but undistinguished. This means that the most interesting part of their set is when the sound of Gogol Bordello on the main stage interferes with theirs, creating a mad mash-up of gypsy punk and wailing guitars.
