Nick Cave may have been the bracket veteran, but neither he nor his Bad Seeds were any match for third-ranked Tame Impala. “Eventually” moves on to face The Preatures and “Somebody’s Talking,” which pulled down an impressive 69% over Jagwar Ma.
The first-round matchup between Hiatus Kaiyote and Taxidermy Hall was the most exciting in the tournament thus far. It went into overtime, and the second-ranked Kaiyotes staved off an upset with a buzzer-beater against the upstart Rob Dickens. “Molasses” moves on to face Courtney Barnett after her “Depreston” garnered an impressive 69% over Lord Echo in their first-round affair.
