KALPORZ AWARDS 2011: la lista degli ospiti

Il capolavoro di PJ Harvey “Let England Shake” che ricorre come un mantra, il viscerale revival wave di John Maus, la deviante psichedelia degli islandesi Dead Skeletons, le ipnosi spaziali di Oneohtrix Point Never, gli stridori di Tim Hecker e il folgorante esordio del collettivo hip hop di Seattle Shabazz Palaces sono le segnalazioni più diffuse di alcuni nomi internazionali e italiani interpellati per l’occasione.
