ETAO SHIN + HACKSILVER + LISA MARIE GLOVER + DOUG HAYMAN + TEA LEAF

Facebook event pageetaoali

Etao Shin is a weird rock band from Bristol via Southampton. They combine irregular structures with bits of improv, noise, jazz and punk; their songs have genuine queerness (in both senses of the word) with a solid gold heart. They come highly recommended by legendary music journo Everett True and BBC Introducing: The South, with not-entirely-unfounded comparisons to Cardiacs, The Fall and Tune-Yards. The band have released three EPs since forming in 2010 and are currently working on their debut album, due out in Autumn 2014.

Hacksilver are Leeds hardcore oddballs with members from Endless Rope and War All The Time. 

Lisa Marie Glover is a singing/songwriting musical type lady and presenter of Bomb the Twist on BCB Radio. She rose from failed piano lessons, Catholic school choirs and singing along to Belinda Carlisle tapes with a hairbrush microphone. Her influences include Fleetwood Mac, Eddi Reader, Cole Porter, Tom Waits, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Wonder, Ben Folds Five and Nina Simone.
Doug Hayman is an acoustic singer/songwriter who is currently residing in a loft in Bedminster Bristol. His finger picking method of playing and soft vocal style creates a mellow melancholic sound that has been likened to acts such as Iron and Wine, Bon Iver, Elliott Smith and Nick Drake.
Tea Leaf "His songwriting is mildly reminiscent of that of Conor Oberst from Bright Eyes & heavy with teenage angst. Even edged at times, with a slight bitterness that conveys a depth to the stories that he sings.”
- Aaron Rose, ManGoneBlog

Ela Orleans / Flower-Campbell Duo / Ygrec

*Ela Orleans*

Baroque, smoky dream-pop, cinematic electronica and lush hypnagogic beat-scapes from a wonderful Female musician currently based in Glasgow via stints in New York and her home country, Poland. For fans of Broadcast, Portishead, Dirty Beaches, US Girls, John Barry, Billie Holiday and Grouper.


*Flower-Campbell Duo*


Highly regarded West Yorkshire-based improv. duo specialising in a sublime cosmic, motorik classicism; a sound that takes in trippy cerebral guitar cycles and banks of wild, fizzing psychedelic electronics. Simultaneously transcendental and thrillingly abrasive, these boys from the Vibracathedral Orchestra school of contemporary drone will leave your head reeling in a thoroughly satisfying manner.


*Ygrec*


New band with members of Please, Beards and The Wub exploring the world of sophisticated continental pop. A preoccupation with the low end of Motown underpins their fancy contrapuntal vocal lines and spidery surf framing. They are now a four-piece and have been hand-chosen to usher in what we expect to be a magical late Summer's night

+ DJ Ben Dewrance, setting da mood.

Facebook Event

7.30 pm tickets £5.50 adv (details to follow) £6.50 OTD. All acts finished in time for last trains to major destinations

Danopposite

 S.O.I. Industries Promotions Presents:-fieldharmonicsagain

 

 

 

 

A night of glacial pop, off kilter hip hop and electronic music… 

 

Field Harmonics (Rob Glover from Epic 45), Juffage, danopposite and Matt Robson:- live synth-pop, post-electronica, guitar strum and hip hop.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Field Harmonics

 

 

 

Rob Glover is one half of the mighty Epic 45, whose rustic pastoralism has been delighting many an introverted dreamer since the mid nineties. Glover's latest project, Field Harmonics presents a more urbane and less impressionistic sonic approach, embracing the directness of synth pop influenced by Glover's memories as a child. Whereas Epic 45's sound was tentative and delicate, the kind you would want to protect from unkind forces, Field Harmonics is bold and unafraid, full of catchy licks and bold choruses as last year's support slot with Visage will attest. Nevertheless, as is the case with all great synth pop, there is an undercurrent of pathos and sadness here that Epic 45 fans in particular will recognise and love.

 

 

 

 

 

danopposite

 

 

 

Unapologetic backpacker indie hip-hop from Leeds, masterminded by ex slam-poet, Daniel Hearn. danopposite presents a heady mixture of musical tropes that navigate a deliciously untidy line between the accessible and the experimental with a lyrical flow which is unashamed of its non-ghetto background. Equally able to poke fun at itself as much as it does at some of hip-hop’s loveable, yet absurd clichés, lyrical content discusses topics as diverse as the realities of being a wage slave to the importance of not mentioning your own name in a rap song.

 

 

 

Fans of the lyrical styles of Sage Francis and Scroobius Pip or the production chops of the likes of Odd Future, J Dilla, Shadowhuntaz, Clouddead and Prefuse 73 should find much to smile about from these local lads.

 

 

 

Matt Robson

 

 

 

Despite being named by Norman Records as the “Peter Pan of the Leeds Music Scene” Matt Robson has continued to fly under the radar in a musical aircraft long since condemned by the civil aviation authority as unfit for purpose.

 

 

 

Past projects include randomNumber, Ailsa Craig, Blanche Hudson Weekend, Sierpinski and Coping Saw. In his current guise, he picks up where randomNumber left off, gently moving away from the glitch based electronica of the early 00’s to take on a slightly more catchier yet proggy hip-hop vibe, or, what we are now rather annoyingly referring to as “post-electronica” (you heard it here first, kids). Expect a warm and organic take on contemporary electronic music which is surprisingly appealing and accessible.

 

 

 

For fans of Flying Lotus, Amon Tobin, Mount Kimbie or mid-period Fourtet.

 

 

 

This will be a free show but we encourage a £2 donation to help towards Field Harmonics travel costs.
