Here’s a review & setlist from indielimerick blog.

Then on stage came the festival weekend highlight in the form of “Doves”. I really cant say much more about their new album “Kingdom of Rust” , It’s a serious record and will finishing highly in peoples top albums list of 2009. Go out and get it! I was really looking forward to these guys has I hadn’t seen them before and they were on my list of bands to see before I die.

They hit straight into my favourite song of their new album “Jetstream”. The lead singer doesn’t really portray a lot of emotion up on stage put the music throughout the set was flawless. 3 songs in they played the crowd favourite “Pounding” and the tent went suitable nuts! They boast a great back catalogue and what we got that night was a serious greatest hits set.

It truly was a magic gig played by them. The final song “The Fear” ended in the band all taking to a percussion instrument and leaving the crowd in a daze of brilliants. If I had gone home after Doves I would have been quite content with the festival

Review from Limerick Leader:

the gig of the weekend followed from Manchester band Doves, who opened with the excellent ‘Jetstream’ from their latest album Kingdom of Rust and never let the momentum drop throughout their near 20 song set.

“It’s great to be on the West Coast, what a beautiful day eh?” said lead singer Jez Williams, who was earlier seen wandering down main street in Kilkee. Final song There Goes The Fear, from excellent second album The Last Broadcast, was simply stunning and drew a huge reaction from the crowd that stayed to hear it.

Hot Press Interview & Bestival

doves at Bestival

Short recap of doves at Bestival found at strangeglue.

Performances of their much-admired tracks “Black And White Town” and “Kingdom Of Rust”. bought the band a lot of favour from the crowd as the sun began to wane on the sky. It’s good to know that the trio, who celebrate their 25th anniversary next year, have still got it. Pay heed MGMT.

Thanks to Brian, who let me know that a doves interview is featured in the current issue of Hot Press. Anyone able to send me a scan so I can post it for all to see?
