Feedback: The Power List

Readers respond to Eminem, Milla Jovovich, and Noomi Rapace

Frontman Charlie Brand — whose acoustic guitar was festooned with the logo of Lost’s Dharma Initiative — led the shaggy quartet through an hour of joyful indie-pop jams, mostly from their sophomore LP, Fortress. The performance was just one stop in a whirlwind year of touring. ”A lot of doors have opened up for us,” says Brand. Expect the very busy band to hit the studio next year. We’ll be waiting…
