Decoding the Sound on Sound Leak

Medieval music convergence reveals lineup tease in video

Sound on Sound Fest returns to Sherwood Forest Nov. 10-12 for its second year of music, comedy, and medieval vibes. The lineup drops next week, but the fest released a video this morning with three reveals.

The clip begins with Chicago rapper Noname’s “Diddy Bop.” The song, off her poetic January debut album Telefone, features Raury and Cam O’bi. Watch Noname perform the track at this year’s Fader Fort.

The hazy hint also mixes in indie rock anthem “Two Weeks” by Grizzly Bear. Here’s the Brooklyn band’s 2009 video for the tune.

The SOS video concludes with a cork-popping sound from Dinosaur Jr.’s “Feel the Pain,” a fan favorite appearing on the power trio’s 1994 album Without a Sound.

The announcement conforms to the festival’s trademark mix of established artists and emerging hopefuls, continuing the tradition of precursor Fun Fun Fun Fest. SOS currently offers pre-sale passes on sale ’til Wednesday.
