WETDOG album launch and new shows for ARIEL PINK and AUSMUTEANTS

-->
Afternoon all!
Our WETDOG party on Saturday is the order of the day, advance tickets have sold out but we will have 20 tickets available on the door from 7.30pm! You can find the full listing for their Power Lunches spectacular below with NO BRA, MUSIC RECORDINGS and JOHN DAKER all set to perform. Here’s the entrancingly strange new video for ‘Divine Times’ by the band to get you in the mood, set the scene, tickle your fancy…



We’ve also made two new additions to our upcoming shows programme this week, with Australia’s AUSMUTEANTS playing for us on June 10th at The Shacklewell Arms, followed one week later with an intimate concert from ARIEL PINK at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club (tickets onsale tomorrow from 9am). I can’t imagine a more perfect match of venue / artist, one for the fans! Alright! Here’s the whole story…



\\\\\    SATURDAY    /////



WETDOG  *** ALBUM LAUNCH ***
NO BRA
MUSIC RECORDINGS
JOHN DAKER
Saturday 18 April
Power Lunches, 446 Kingsland Road, Haggerston, E8 4AE
7.30pm | £5

WETDOG are Rivka Gillieron, Sarah Datbylgu and Billy Easter, three individuals with an expertise for chasing down melodies across their songs. Previous albums on Angular and Captured Tracks have indicated their interest with the minimal palette of post punk and whilst that remains a glowing core to their coals over the last five years WETDOG have evolved in their approach to making music. Whereas their debut album ‘Enterprise Reversal’ was overflowing with melodic clatter, their follow up ‘Frauhaus’ seemed decidedly darker and disparate. Since that release WETDOG have become a transatlantic proposal. Separated by an ocean, the trio have had to work harder than ever to rope together their instincts. This commitment to staying in touch with each other as well as in touch with their sound can be heard throughout their new album ‘Divine Times’, released by Upset The Rhythm on May 4th. It has all of the tropes of what you’d expect from WETDOG, the characteristic fervor, deadpan humour, falling-to-bits willfulness, yet ‘Divine Times’ transcends the band’s love of all things disjointed and accidentally happy. It’s the sound of WETDOG confident out there on their own limb.

NO BRA is the music/art project of Susanne Oberbeck, active since 2003. Known for her signature long straight hair and steely vocal delivery, German native Oberbeck became something of a cult icon amongst London’s alterna-queer set. Currently based in New York, she recently released the follow-up to 2006’s ‘Dance and Walk’ called ‘Candy’, an exploration of the pervasiveness of casual harassment. Repeating “cross the line/don’t cross the line/cross the line/don’t cross the line,” Oberbeck puts the listener in juxtaposed positions, trading off between being the victim or the victimiser, whilst building up a feeling of uncomfortable tension, asking: “What is your candy store?”

MUSIC RECORDINGS aka Max Syed-Tollan was long assumed lost to the vagaries of time, he is the Quintessential Horse Whisperer’ as his songs attest! You will not believe your eyes. You will pulsate rhythmically and gurgle like a frog. You will not have the opportunity to purchase merchandise.

JOHN DAKER are two women making music from the words stored at the sides of their brains, fractured keyboard beats and surreal melodies. Putting the performance into musical performance!

Happy Meals in London, Hackney Record Fair and WETDOG album launch!!!


Good afternoon!
Thanks so much to all of you who’ve come recently to see Purling Hiss, Future Islands and Neil Hagerty at Upset The Rhythm! It’s been such an unusual few weeks, I’m really glad you could come along with us on such an interesting trip. We haven’t quite arrived yet though as this Thursday we’ll set up base camp at Power Lunches for a Night School Records double-header with the ascendant HAPPY MEALS and APOSTILLE both performing. We’re also privileged to have DESIGN A WAVE playing too, who is without a doubt one of our favourite musicians. Now that’s what I call cosmic, warped and willful music, Volume One! Full details on that show can be found below in full.

Furthermore, this Sunday you’ll find us at the inaugural Hackney Record Fair, we’ll have most of our back catalogue for sale (including a copy of our very first record!), new t-shirts / badges / stickers and some rare items too! This poster gives you the total gist.


This is too good an opportunity to pass on telling you about our upcoming WETDOG album party on April 18th so find that listing coming up next. Also at Power Lunches, this show sees NO BRA, MUSIC RECORDINGS and JOHN DAKER all supporting on the lineup. Lots to read, I’ll leave you to it…


\\\\\    THURSDAY    /////


HAPPY MEALS
APOSTILLE
DESIGN A WAVE
Thursday 9 April
Power Lunches, 446 Kingsland Road, Dalston, E8 4AE

HAPPY MEALS make sensual, spellbinding lo-fi pop. Sounding like the work of Saada Bonaire's long-lost slacker offspring, debut album ’Apéro' is actually the produce of two Glasgow-based artists, Suzanne Rodden and Lewis Cook, who originally hail from the Scottish borders. Suzanne sings in a unique mix of French and Scottish, occasionally sharing the mic with Lewis over the course of six songs taking the 100% Silk/NNF pop aesthetic and psych-dub freedom of Peaking Lights to a more ambiguous, enchanted headspace. It's all top notch stuff, from the nine minute celestial sashay of 'Crystal Salutation' through the chiming boogie of 'Altered Images' to the blown-out dub-pop of 'The Age Of Love', and the Balearic acid of 'Le Voyage’. ’Apéro' is available now on LP/CD through Night School Records.
https://soundcloud.com/nightschool/altered-images

APOSTILLE is the recording and performing project of Night School head honcho Michael Kasparis (of Please and The Lowest Form). Having started as a home-damaged pop music, Apostille has grown into a live-wire synth punk prospect that bridges physicality with emotive bleed. Insistent flickering beats hold down a sturdy framework for Kasparis' clouds of echoed vocals and synth cluster quests. Sometimes Michael's voice soars above the music, hanging their like an apparition, other times the cloaked notes surge forwards, bouncing between distorted handclaps, wonky basslines and oblique incantations to deliriously wondrous effect. Apostille’s debut album ‘Powerless’ will be released next month through Night School records.
http://apostille.bandcamp.com/

DESIGN A WAVE is the long standing project of London-based artist Tom Hirst. Propelled equally by the misuse of digital signal processing, analogue synthesizers and parasitic earworms, these recordings serve as a milestone in this continuing adventure. Electronic tones multiply and subtract thoughout the release in a sublime cosmic flurry, paying homage to electro pioneers that came before. Above the transistorised jumble, crystalline synths emerge through deeply rooted rhythms. Weaving throughout experimental electronics to more dance ready tracks, Design a Wave veers sharply left, to carve his own wayward path.
