DMA'S

Wednesday 29th November ● Motherwell Civic Centre, Motherwell

DMA’S (dee-em-ayes) is Johnny Took, Matt Mason and Tommy O’Dell – three friends who came together making nostalgic garage pop in a bedroom in Newtown, Australia.

Since the release of their brilliant debut album 'Hills End', DMA’S have not stopped for a second. From playing the coveted secret slot at Glastonbury, to smashing it on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, to having ‘Delete’ added to BBC Radio 1 A Rotation – the band have certainly shown the world just what all the fuss is about!

DMA’S have been selling out shows across four continents, and playing on the bills of the world’s biggest festivals including Coachella, Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, Reading & Leeds, Splendour In The Grass, Laneway, Bonnaroo, Osheaga to name but a few.

“…the euphoria they evoke at this packed show is undeniably special.” – NME

KANE STRANG

Thursday 16th November ● Broadcast Glasgow

Kane Strang’s sensibilities for songwriting err toward the peculiar, being enhanced rather than restricted by a lo-fi psych-pop sound. Strang’s path toward a melody is always surprising, and he never misses a beat delivering his wryly deadpan lines bemoaning lost love and . “Strang has a gift for pulling diamonds from the rough”, said a recent Pitchfork review, “[his] songs have a way of making modest acts seem heroic.”

KAGOULE + CATHOLIC ACTION

Tuesday 7th November ● Broadcast Glasgow

For Fans of: Jawbox, Lungfish, Unwound, other bands that scraped at their angst with jagged guitars and body-confusing post-punk charge.

Why You Should Pay Attention: The teenage trio from Nottingham, England had a bit of a coming-out party at this year’s Glastonbury festival, where they made good on U.K. hype built on their artfully retro sound and an ebulliently downcast live show. The band will be releasing their debut full-length soon and, if their great 2014 single “It Knows It” b/w “Adjust the Way” is any indication, it should be a fun little bummer of a record.”

LIAM GALLAGHER

Monday 4th December ● SSE Hydro Glasgow

Representing his first tour following the October 6th release of his debut solo album ‘As You Were’, the announcement comes as Liam is back at the height of his powers. His return has been nothing short of spectacular, from emotive scenes in Manchester to huge sing-a-longs at Glastonbury, while three new tracks – ‘Wall of Glass’, ‘Chinatown’ and ‘For What It’s Worth’ – are already establishing themselves as towering anthems, delivered with Liam’s once-in-a-lifetime vocal.

Liam wrote or co-wrote every song that features on ‘As You Were’. In addition to Dan Grech-Marguerat, other key collaborators include Greg Kurstin and Andrew Wyatt. One of the most striking aspects of the album is that all the songs have a purpose. There’s no flab, nothing to cut. They all feel directed at something or someone, setting the record straight or getting his side of the story over.

LIARS + HAPPY MEALS

Wednesday 1st November ● The Art School Glasgow

“When I first started working on this record, I was trying to explore the idea of being isolated,” says Angus Andrew, before falling silent for a few seconds. “Sorry,” he begins again, “I lost my train of thought there. I was looking at a kangaroo through the window.”

Angus is calling from a remote spot near Sydney, Australia – “In the super-bush, offshore,” he says. “I live in a National Park. There are no cars, it’s all rainwater and septic tanks.” Compared to the locations where previous Liars albums have been recorded – Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Berlin, bustling metropolises all – Angus’ current base of operations marks something of a left-turn. But, then, so does TFCF, (which stands for Theme From Crying Fountain), Liars’ eighth and latest full-length.

JOHN MAUS

Saturday 25th November ● CCA 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.

KING KRULE

Friday 15th December ● 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.

24PSYCH SUNDAY III: BO NINGEN + Mr TC + Sweaty PalmsBroadcast
Broadcast, Glasgow
This year's PSYCH SUNDAY headliners, BO NINGEN are a Japanese four-piece acid punk band consisting of Taigen Kawabe, Yuki Tsujii, Kohhei Matsuda and Monchan Monna. Though they come from Gumma, Tajimi, Nishinomiya, and Tokyo, they coalesced in London.

Musically, they channel their country’s legacy of obscure, brain-warping heavy-psych: Les Ralizes Denudés, High Rise, Sweet and Honey and Flower Travellin’ Band all traceable beneath their esoteric sound. It’s evident from the place they had all found themselves in their twenties however that they were in the mood for discovery: they regurgitated their tastes in Acid Folk and Noise and hurled them into the electric cataclysm too. Though challenging to process, any cautious, sensible listeners were saved by a weighty dose of Sabbath and Nirvana.

They’ve released 3 fantastic albums and have toured with Primal Scream, collaborated with Savages, earning widespread acclaim from the likes of The Quietus, DIY, Line of Best Fit and The New York Times. To them “Being ‘psychedelic’ means to stand quietly / loudly in the middle of interzone and stare at both sides at once”.

In September 2016, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club released their new album, The Commandments According to SCAC. It has been 24 years since Slim Cessna parted ways with The Denver Gentlemen, that grand progenitor of the peculiar strain of Gothic Americana unique to the Mile High City, to form Slim Cessna’s Auto Club with a group of talented peers.

Many bands with a long and successful run like that would stick close to its roots. But rather than rest on well-earned laurels, the Auto Club challenged itself to break with well-worn modes of operating for the new record.

Nice N Sleazy, Glasgow
Good Morning are a two piece recording project made up of Stefan Blair and Liam Parsons from Melbourne, Australia. The two met in high school and have been writing songs ever since. In 2013, they went halvies in a Foxtex 4 track tape machine; Good Morning is the result of that investment.

They have released two mildly received EPs, Shawcross and Glory, and some similarly received singles. In a live setting they are joined by James Macleod and John Considine. Together they have performed in the United States at CMJ Music Marathon and most of Australia.

Career highlights include being unfavourably compared to Mac DeMarco a lot, that time Urban Outfitters asked to play their music in stores and when Tyler, the Creator tweeted the cover of Shawcross.

This July, Melbourne-based independent label Bedroom Suck Records will re-issue these two beautifully produced and incredibly catchy records on one 12′′ vinyl package, available from July 7, 2017.

1Little CubBroadcast
Broadcast, Glasgow
Made up of Dominic Gore, Duncan Tootill, and Ady Acolatse, Little Cub are an alternative/indie pop trio based in South-East London, U.K. Although their sound developed primarily in London, the ensemble actually formed in Dorking, Surrey in 2015. Gore and Tootill met by chance and instantly bonded over a shared passion for LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy and his label, DFA Records, alongside other seminal acts such as New Order and Aphex Twin. Gore then went on to meet Acolatse during a club night at London’s infamous Fabric. The three friends then began to brainstorm, sharing musical ideas, and Little Cub was born. Drawing across a range of influences, the trio’s sound encapsulated sleek noir-pop with ethereal atmospherics inspired by a multitude of electronic genres, alongside lyrics that traverse love, loss, and introspection. After amassing a number of strong compositions, the ensemble got to work performing in and around London; they released their first single, "Breathing Space," in the summer of 2016. The track garnered widespread acclaim and eventually caught the attention of Domino Records. They then put out their debut release for the label, Loveless, later that year. The song received further praise for its woozy, sparse, and lush electronics and soaring yet soft chorus melody. Little Cub released their first full-length album, Still Life, in April 2017 via Domino Records.

4BrutusBroadcast
Broadcast, Glasgow
Brutus rage like a maelstrom. They are a meteor shower of sound. This trio from Leuven, Belgium create expansive, stratospheric punk not quite like any other band around.

With post-rock construction, black metal dynamics, hardcore energy, prog and math-rock flourishes and pure pop melodies all detectable on their debut album Burst, Brutus manage to straddle the significant divide between Slayer and Savages, The Smiths and Slowdive, Dillinger Escape Plan and Deus - and all with just three members expertly colluding to make a sound as monolithic as it is emotive.

The searing, soaring guitars of shoegaze are amped up to hardcore punk speed, drums gallop like wild horses over open larval planes and drumming singer Stefanie Mannaerts offers some of the most impassioned vocals heard in recent times, capable of shifting from deceptively melodic to out-right larynx-punishing in the blink of an eye.

In 2014 and 2015 they played mostly all over Belgium. Pukkelpop, Rock Herk, Dour Festival, Boomtown, AB Club, Botanique, Depot, Stuk, Trix, ... and more than 100 intense small shows.

In April 2016 Brutus decamped to Vancouver (Canada) to record their debut-album Burst with Jesse Gander (White Lung, Japandroids, ...). It was a wise move. Burst is a 21st century rock album: challenging and exhilarating. Colossal. A cathedral-sized noise. A unique listening experience. Brutus are here.

4Baby In Vain plus guests Sneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
Making rumbling rock and grimy grunge that’s as malevolent as a midnight knife fight, their sound is equal parts Kyuss and Sleater-Kinney, with a dash of Babes In Toyland for extra punch.

Baby In Vain are not your typical Scandinavian indie band. Drawing on the gang-mentality and bluesy swagger of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Queens Of The Stone Age, they’ve been together six years, but are still quite young; Lola’s 19, Benedicte is 21 and Andrea 22. Their early material saw them producing their own twist on stoner-rock, but over the past five years they’ve branched out into much broader territory, pulling in the industrial menace of post-punk alongside fuzzy expeditions into the fringes of doom and garage punk.

EMA began with the urge to self-exile. After the success of ‘Past Life Martyred Saints’ and 2014’s prophetic ‘The Future’s Void, EMA retreated to a basement in Portland, Oregon – a generic apartment complex in a non-trendy neighborhood, with beige carpeting and cheap slat blinds.
She returns with a portrait of a world both familiar and alien: ‘The Outer Ring’, a pitch-black world of half-empty subdivisions, American flags hung over basement windows, big-box stores and strip malls and rage. In a year dominated by working-class alienation, EMA — a Midwesterner who has never lost her thousand-yard stare — has delivered an album that renders American poverty and resentment with frightening realism and deep empathy.

Today, Grizzly Bear has announced the August 18 release of PAINTED RUINS, their highly anticipated fifth full-length album, and first for RCA Records. In addition, the band has shared new album track “Mourning Sound.” That song follows “Three Rings,” another track from PAINTED RUINS released earlier this month and hailed as “spellbinding” (Rolling Stone), “insistent” (The New York Times), and “a sonically ambitious return” (Pigeons & Planes).

Grizzly Bear – Chris Bear, Ed Droste, Daniel Rossen and Chris Taylor – spent the better part of two years writing and recording the eleven new compositions on PAINTED RUINS. Taylor produced the album with sessions taking place primarily at Allaire Studios in upstate New York, and at various locations around Los Angeles, including his own Terrible Studios (Three members of Grizzly Bear now live in Los Angeles; Rossen lives in Santa Fe, NM).

Grizzly Bear will embark on a worldwide headlining tour following the release of PAINTED RUINS. PAINTED RUINS follows 2012’s Shields, which was a critical and commercial breakthrough. Debuting at #7 on the Billboard 200 and named the #1 Album of the Year by Apple iTunes, Shields earned the band Pitchfork Best New Music and four star Rolling Stone reviews; performances on Colbert, Fallon, Letterman, Austin City Limits and Ellen; and sold out shows at Radio City Music Hall in New York City and the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.

Shame instigated the daredevil club night, Chimney Shitters and creating a politically outspoken, DIY ethos reflecting a punk spirit in today’s world. “We are not puppets. Everything we do, we do ourselves,” says former Camberwell student, Steen. “From our songs to our clothes to the artwork for the singles, T-shirts, and fanzines. It’s all us.

They have just completed their second LP, to be released on Sub Pop Records, working with Greg Norman and Fugazi’s Guy Picciotto, and they join the countless people filling streets and airports around the USA to loudly proclaim #NoBan, #NoRegistry, #FuckWhiteSupremacy.

They bring an aggressive dissonance to make a harmonious message against the erasure of people of color, queer people, femmes, and those of us who have always been in the center of the pit whether you knew it or not.

Based in Providence, RI, the band released their acclaimed debut album, Full Communism, in 2015, and they have been touring their powerful live show throughout North America and Europe since 2012.

Now that the United States has a despot instead of a president, Downtown Boys are that much more driven to use their anger and their joy to drill away at the walls of white supremacy’s brain.

17Diet Cig plus The Spook School Sneaky Pete's
Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
Diet Cig are here to have fun. They’re here to tear you away from the soul-sucking sanctity of your dumpster-fire life and replace it with pop-blessed punk jams about navigating the impending doom of adulthood when all you want is to have ice cream on your birthday.

Alex Luciano (guitar and vocals) and Noah Bowman (drums) have been playing music together ever since Luciano interrupted the set of Bowman's previous band for a lighter. The New York duo have since released the infectious, 2015 ‘Over Easy’ EP that introduced consistent sing-a-long lyrics with thrashing drums and strums that never held back.

‘Swear I’m Good At This’ is the first full-length from the band and accumulates their tenacity for crafting life-affirming, relatable tales with a gutsy heart at their core. Luciano has the ability to write lyrics that are both vulnerable and badass, perfecting a storm of emotive reflection that creates a vision of a sweaty, pumped-up room screaming these lines in unison. Diet Cig make it okay to be the hot mess that you are.

But there’s also a deeper, more powerful fuck-you among the bangers that see Diet Cig grow into an unstoppable and inspiring force. “I’m not being dramatic, I’ve just fucking had it with the things that you say you think that I should be” spits Luciano on “Link in Bio”; “I am bigger than the outside shell of my body and if you touch it without asking then you’ll be sorry” she yells on “Maid Of The Mist”. It’s the sound of a band doing things on their own terms.

Wrapping up ‘Swear I’m Good At This’ on Halloween 2016, exactly two years after they finished recording ‘Over Easy’ on Halloween 2014, Diet Cig’s first, full-length LP validates the experiences of punks who aren’t always accepted first time around; the punks who throw their deuces up at the dominating bro-dudes and ignite the importance of owning everything that you are.

London-based punk-fuelled trio Slowcoaches have announced their biggest headline tour to date for October and November this year. Vocalist / Bassist Heather Perkins says of the shows: "This is the biggest headline tour we've done so far, so we're excited to play some of our favourite venues and visit some new cities. It'll be the first outing for a lot of new material too. We look forward to hanging out and making a lot of mess. Please note that all of our shows are safe spaces. This doesn't mean don't mosh. It means don't be a dick.”

The band’s riotous live show has been known to cause grown men to headbang so vigourously they end up headbutting the monitors before projectile vomiting all over the stage. Expect the unexpected but know you’ll be in for a wild ride. Think the grubby grunge of Mudhoney and early punk of The Germs meeting 1970s LA icons The Nerves and the sassy stance of Babes In Toyland down a dark alley somewhere in east London and you’re halfway there.

Slowcoaches’ debut album ‘Nothing Gives’ was released at the tail end of last year via Leisure & District and, though it could easily soundtrack a fun time, the themes of the record detail all the bad stuff that happens in life: break-ups, breakdowns, a pre-mid life crisis, a drug induced mental illness, falling out with friends, getting way too wrecked, losing your job then desperately trying to find a job… the list goes on.

Broadcast, Glasgow
When the new millennium arrived the music industry was in the midst of a new music revolution. The free delivery via shared files online created a new “outlaw” brand, that would prove instrumental in the way music would be not just delivered but created. One of the breakout bands to not just embrace but help shift the tectonic plates of the music industry was Crazy Town. As one of the first hybrid brands, they brought a new ball into the game. Equal parts urban and suburban, Chevrolet and Bentley, they rolled onto the music scene with a slow build that erupted when a “Butterfly” entered the room. The two founding members, Seth Binzer and Bret Mazur were introduced to each other by Will I Am of the Black Eye Peas. Binzer brought in his longtime friend DJ AM and Crazytown was born.

The band was all the buzz in the industry, the talk of LA. Crazytown-mania created a classic Hollywood record label bidding war in which Columbia Records ultimately won. It was the Columbia/Sony worldwide reach which appealed the most to Crazytown and that reach had them touring the world and eventually garnered them a number 1 record in more than 15 countries, and selling more than 6 million copies of their first album, The Gift of Game. The success of their worldwide smash hit Butterfly in 2001 was inescapable and reached iconic status

Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
Back again, one of the DJ producers who is closest to our heart.

Jacques Greene is the enigmatic, young artist who broke out of a generation of independent electronic labels Uno, 3024, Night Slugs and LuckyMe as a genre-defining producer and DJ (via 2011’s ’Another Girl’ – one of Pitchfork’s Songs of the Decade, 2013 favourite ’On Your Side’ ft. How To Dress Well and 2016’s club anthem ’You Can’t Deny’). Jacques Greene crafted a musical blueprint that inspired a generation who were raised at the intersection of contemporary music in the 90s: hip hop, RnB, house and techno.

At its heart, ‘Feel Infinite’ is a record about the utopian idea of club culture - music about the club, as well as for the club in and of itself. Written over the course of two years, this debut album is the purest, most personal expression of the Jacques Greene sound created by the born and raised Montrealer, renowned for collaborating and remixing Tinashe, Radiohead, Sampha and Shlohmo. Present on the record are Jacques Greene RnB vocal chops that he popularised in new club music - but here he returns to their original purpose: his own reference to Masters Of Work. Where they drew from their primary influence in disco, JG draws upon his own formative chart music.

This is a DJ show.
