Multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, songwriter, visual artist and record label owner John Dwyer was one of the curators for Le Guess Who? 2021, presenting his personal program with inspirations and fellow like-minded artists. As part of the curation, Dwyer also performed twice himself on the final day of the festival: first with jam-loving collective Bent Arcana, and later that day with his main project OSEES

You can now relive both performances. First off, there's the video of OSEES performing 'Turned Out Light' as the closing song of their show. It's short and sweet. Need more? We've got your back. You can also listen to Bent Arcana's full set at the festival (which features a.o. Kyp Malone on electronics), which marked the group's European live premiere. 

"During the first song the audience is on its feet rocking out. Two drummers create these incredible foundations on which the guitars and vocals can stand strong and reach to the skies. The perfect way to end a turbulent weekend" - Louder Than War

"John Dwyer’s Bent Arcana with TV On The Radio’s Kyp Malone on modular synth [present a] vortex of improv-fusion with krautrock leanings" - MOJO Magazine
