Ezra Furman

Monday May 28th 2018 ● O2 ABC Glasgow

Transangelic Exodus is a new landmark for the American singer-songwriter: “Not a concept record, but almost a novel, or a cluster of stories on a theme, a combination of fiction and a half-true memoir,” according to its author. “A personal companion for a paranoid road trip. A queer outlaw saga.” The music is as much of an intense, dramatic event, full of brilliant hooks, with an equally evolved approach to recorded sound to match Furman’s narrative vision. In honour of this shift, his backing band has been newly christened: The Boy-Friends are dead, long live The Visions. In other words, the man who embodies the title of his last album ‘Perpetual Motion People’ is still on the move… Or, in the vernacular of the new album, on the run. “The narrative thread,” Furman declares, “is I’m in love with an angel, and a government is after us, and we have to leave home because angels are illegal, as is harbouring angels. The term ‘transangelic’ refers to the fact people become angels because they grow wings. The have an operation, and they’re transformed. And it causes panic because some people think it’s contagious, or it should just be outlawed.” “The album still works without the back story, though,” he vouches. “What’s essential is the mood - paranoid, authoritarian, the way certain people are stigmatised. It’s a theme in American life right now, and other so-called democracies.”

Yo La Tengo is one of the most beloved and respected bands in America. For nearly thirty years, Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley and James McNew have enjoyed success entirely on their own terms – playing the world’s best concert halls, museums, and dives, dominating critics’ lists, doing a Simpsons theme, playing the Velvet Underground in “I Shot Andy Warhol,” sharing stages with some of the most important musicians of our time, and even creating a holiday tradition onto themselves with their yearly series of Hanukkah shows at Hoboken, New Jersey’s legendary club Maxwells, from which they’ve donated hundreds of thousands to charity.

Moon Duo

Wednesday 31st January 2018 ● La Belle Angele Edinburgh

Meaning all things magick and supernatural the root of the word occult is that which is hidden, concealed, beyond the limits of our minds. If this is occult, then the Occult Architecture of Moon Duo’s fourth album – a psychedelic opus in two separate volumes released in 2017 – is an intricately woven hymn to the invisible structures found in the cycle of seasons and the journey of day into night, dark into light.

Forming in Leeds in early 2013, Autobahn blew audiences away with one of the most intense and visceral live shows in recent years. Encapsulating the landscape of their Yorkshire home, their sound soars from the harsh post-industrial concrete of the city right through to the endless Pennine expanses on its periphery. Following the release of two self-titled EPs, Autobahn released their debut album, Dissemble, on August 2015 via Tough Love. The band built their own studio in Leeds to record their second album 'The Moral Crossing' which will be released on November 3rd. 2017.

23Autobahn plus guests Sneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
We first caught Autobahn here as support to Eagulls where the audience reaction was unnervingly strong to the warm up band. Their towering take on motorik goth is equal parts energising and dumbfounding, and with their new album ‘The Moral Crossing’ they have really let loose, with tornados of percussion blasting through walls of guitar noise, their course stayed by Craig Johnson’s Curtis-like howl.

“The melancholic aspect of our music is often offset by an aggressive dissonance, but to me there’s also a romantic side to what we do, which isn’t always clear because of the 100mph drive of the band. That’s what we are exploring with this new album. “

25John Maus + Gary War (SOLD OUT)The Art School
The Art School, Glasgow
John Maus lives in his birthplace of Austin, Minnesota. Whilst working towards his PhD in Political Science he also composes music that taps into melancholic fantasy and affirms that we are all truly alive. Questing synthesisers, tensely strung bass lines and chasing drum machines provide the perfect backdrop for John's deeply resonant reverb-drenched vocal.

Born in the decade of synth pop and sharing his birthday with George Frideric Handel, John started making music when Nirvana posters went up on every teenager's wall. It's this curious conflux of influences that partially helps to describe John's music. It's a world where the Germs jam with Jerry Goldsmith, Cabaret Voltaire relocate to Eternia and Josquin des Prez writes a new score for RoboCop. The confrontation of punk, the fleeting poignancy of 80s movie soundtracks, the insistent pulse of Moroder and the spirituality of Medieval and Baroque music all find salvation in John Maus.

After a spell working alongside Ariel Pink and Gary War in Haunted Graffiti, 2006 saw the release of John's debut album proper through Upset The Rhythm.

Broadcast, Glasgow
Kllo are pleased to announce details of their debut LP Backwater, due for release on 20 October via Different Recordings. Today Kllo reveal ‘Virtue’, the album’s slow-building and euphoric first single. “‘Virtue’ is about not knowing what you’ve got till it’s gone, whether that be a part of yourself or somebody else,” the pair say. “It’s the present moment of finally coming to that realisation.”

Kllo – an electronic pop collaboration between Melbourne cousins Chloe Kaul and Simon Lam – waded in figurative backwater for much of 2016 amid an extensive world tour. These were exciting times; the duo’s Well Worn EP furthered the promise of 2014 EP Cusp, receiving millions of streams and landing Kllo on festival stages as well as Artists-to-Watch lists. Nonetheless, the stretch kept them far from home, isolated and vulnerable, treading through perpetual uncharted territory while yearning for the comforts of the familiar.

As a result, Kllo’s full-length debut depicts inner adjustment to outer change. Songs were written partially on the road and developed back at Lam’s bungalow, a haven that harbours creative spontaneity and catharsis.

“It’s the first time we hadn’t felt like kids anymore,” says Kaul. “We were really able to dive in deeper and bring out a lot more of us into the music.”

SWG3, Glasgow
King Krule has shared a video for “Czech One,” the first new music to surface from Archy Marshall’s acclaimed project since 2013. Directed by Frank Lebon, the video features Archy alone in his thoughts but surrounded by hundreds of strangers on a red-eye flight -- as he contemplates his past, present and future. The visuals are a Noir-esque reverie, echoing the song’s atmospheric-downtempo-lounge-jazz-dream-state, where Archy muses, “To when and where the stars were formed, that glance upon this night / lightyears to sit upon and paint us as we lie.”

“Czech One” will be available as the A-Side to a limited edition 7” coming out September 13th on True Panther Sounds/XL Recordings.

Following high profile festival slots this summer at Primavera and FYF, King Krule has announced a worldwide headline tour in the autumn, with a huge show at Glasgow's SWG3.

On general sale Friday 25th August at 10am.

16Moulettes plus guests Sneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
In early 2015, lead singer and songwriter Hannah Miller read a New Scientist article that described how the discovery of a microscopic creature had redefined the perimeters of life as we know it.
The ‘Halicephalobus Mephisto’ Nematode Worm has none of the requirements of other known life forms - able to survive deep underground, without oxygen or sunlight.
The seed was sown for ‘Preternatural’ - an eclectic 11-track opus for the Natural World, and the strange and beautiful creatures in it.

“It made me contemplate how much we still don't know about the planet we live on, and to consider that
moving space between what we do know, and what we can never know; at the frontier of science and
discovery.” says Miller. “The animal kingdom holds such a wealth of beauty, creativity, humour, ingenuity
and artistry. I wanted to celebrate it, to underline its fragility, to hold up a mirror and compare our own
species to others.”

The band, like the creatures they describe, have always been an evolving phenomenon, and each
album has seen a significant leap into new unchartered territory, their unusual music vision
prompting comparisons as disparate as «…the Kronos quartet, Roxy Music, Frank Zappa, Kate
Bush...echoes of early Pink Floyd, Bowie and Radiohead.. Kraftwerk and Björk» (R2 Magazine/Reuters.)

“We identify with bands who present their own kind of eclecticism,” says Oliver Austin. “From Zappa, and Gentle Giant to current bands like Field Music, John Grant, Snarky Puppy, Laura Mvula, My Brightest Diamond, tUnE-yArDs and Tortoise; these were all references for the record.”

It is a beautifully orchestrated ecosystem, experimental in parts but still accessible, fusing rich vocal harmonies, persuasive melodies, big riffs, detailed arrangements and sharp songcraft to make a genre-defying album, which explores the moving space between electronic and acoustic; DIY and big production.

The arrival of newest member Raevennan Husbandes catalysed a rockier mood, her stark and fluid electric guitar playing complementing Miller’s virtuosic cello to forge a muscular, unique sound-blend. Husbandes’ & Miller’s luminous voices deliver characteristic multi-layered harmonies locked in with a towering, thunderous rhythm section (Mortimore / Austin), the band’s synergy and tightness is a testament to their relentless touring schedule; their musical range described by Prog Magazine as “huge, complex and compelling. One of the most thrillingly nimble musical ensembles the UK has produced in decades.»

Incurably ambitious, this is a band that has always put an adventurous approach to Art at the heart of their craft. The front cover best demonstrates Moulettes for what it is: an eclectic, progressive hybrid, a bizarre and bombastic monster.

December 2017 is the concluding chapter of the two-year ‘Preternatural’ tour, and the last chance to see the «breathtaking» live show that has taken the band across Europe from Poland to Malta, and across Canada from Nova Scotia to Victoria Island.

Book early to avoid disappointment. Tickets on sale Friday 10am.
