A SAVAGE + JACK COOPER

Wednesday 31st January ● Broadcast Glasgow

Daybreak tends to creep up on you. Emerging from starry darkness, the sun wobbles at first but proceeds on its scheduled arc. You can’t help but wonder if it ever looks back in disbelief, or regret. This feeling of self-reflection—of looking back to see how far you’ve come—is precisely the sentiment of Thawing Dawn, the first solo record from A. Savage, released on Dull Tools. The songs on Thawing Dawn form a guided tour through the romantic environs of A. Savage’s mirrored mind. While some were written recently, other tunes were penned over the past decade. For one reason or another, these compositions didn’t land with any of Savage’s other groups, and instead are presented now as a distinct collection. Reflecting back, Savage says, “Once I realized I had a small body of work that didn’t fit anywhere else, I started to examine the commonalities: What’s the common denominator of all this and how I can expand on it?” Savage is best known as the frontman for Parquet Court, a duty split with fellow Texan Austin Brown. Their last record, Human Performance, delved into the emotional wreckage of a broken heart, to critical acclaim. But withThawing Dawn, it’s clear that Savage has matured. While assembling the record, he fell in love. Now, for the first time, we hear songs about being on the inside of love. Rather than lamenting the end of a relationship, we hear a voice trying, in the moment, to make sense of love’s mysteries. “Part of this maturity,” he says, “is reflecting on something when it’s happening, not just when it’s gone.” Thawing Dawn gives us honesty: We see the artist at home in bed, more singer-songwriter portrait than esoteric statement. Throughout his discography Savage has long abbreviated his first name as a kind of writerly gesture. He says, of the move, “I am an uncivilized member of modern civilization--I’m just a savage.” Like Duchamp’s R. Mutt signature on a urinal, the shortening embodies a mischievous directness, enabling this savage to introduce his slanted honesty into the universe.“ Special Guest: Jack Cooper (Ultimate Painting)”

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.”

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.

24Slowcoaches + Monster Treasure + Tongue TrapBroadcast
Broadcast, Glasgow
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.

25Crazy Town + LOKA + Monkey PuzzleBroadcast
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

30Jacques Greene Sneaky Pete's
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.

A hundred memories flood through you when Girl Ray start to play. The happier the surface of their songs appear to be, the more profound you feel when the sadness kicks in underneath it all. On their debut single ‘Trouble’, Girl Ray boldly and breathlessly introduced their sound as an essential voice in these modern times of love, life and physical disconnect. To give their music your attention for a split second, is enough to marvel at how excellently they have crafted their warm Nico-tinged pop.

Manchester five-piece PINS have announced a new tour for November with tickets on sale now. The band also premiered a short film of their EP Bad Thing recently.

The new live dates follow the band’s recent spring headline tour, which included a sold out show at London’s Moth Club, and their support shows with Maximo Park. Tour dates go on sale at 10am on Friday 21st July.

PINS new short film, which was made by Olivier Richomme and Sarah Jenny Johnson and executively produced by the band themselves, features 5 separate videos for each track on the band’s Bad Thing EP which fit together to make up one 20-minute film. The footage, featuring a guest performance from actress Alice Barry, is largely filmed in the band’s hometown of Manchester and portrays a vibrant place full of liberal minded friendly people and is a true celebration of a wonderful city.

PINS say, “In many ways the video is an ode to Manchester, from filming on the eerie surrounding moors to partying in a former public toilet, Temple Bar, with Shameless' own Alice Barrie! We filmed in a few of our favourite venues and bars in Manchester and we just got to have some drinks and listen to music whilst the filming went on. We also filmed on the moors as we wanted some contrast and calm to the chaotic scenes of the night before. The snow was perfect, and so was the pastel sunset”.

Director Olivier Richomme says, “It's been such a treat to get to be involved in this ambitious project, so many people came to help us and it wouldn't have been possible without their support. It feels like we all created this film together and the creative process was really instinctive and natural. We were privileged to get Alice Barry involved and she was such a dream to work with.”

PINS new EP Bad Thing was released recently and was recorded in the Scottish Borders last October and produced by Mark Vernon and PINS. The EP and film opens with the teasing Bad Thing before moving into the addictive Aggrophobe, featuring Iggy Pop’s iconic vocal, leading onto the chant-like pop of All Hail and the dreamy and synth-laden In Nightmares, before ending with PINS own take on Dead Souls originally by Joy Division.

Sneaky Pete's, Edinburgh
Slugabed is Gregory Feldwick, who runs the Activia Benz label and has released records for Ninja Tune and Planet Mu (OFFICIAL). His latest, Inherit The Earth, marks his debut for the weirdo hip-hop and electronica enclave Anticon. It’s an apocalyptic collection — one that begins in earnest with “Stupid Earth” and ends with “Earth Is Gone Sorry” — but there’s so much beauty in Feldwick’s visions of decay.

He’s at a unique confluence of music scenes: he DJ’s at Berghain, remixed Roots Manuva’s ‘Witness (1 Hope)’, established the wonky end of dance music nearly a decade ago with the Donky Pitch crew in Brighton, and has accumulated praise over the years from a wide range of respected DJs including Mary Anne Hobbs, Mark Pritchard, Benji B, Laurent Garnier and Surgeon as well as Tom Ravenscroft and Huw Stevens on BBC Radio 1.

Basically everyone across techno and bass has nothing but the highest praise for him.

Hosting this LIVE show is a real coup, we are truly honoured to be hosting such a talented artist. On his new album ‘Inherit The Earth’ he makes bass music of a sort, but it’s part jazz odyssey, part hip-hop beat tape, part future-pop deconstruction, part Part John Carpenter soundtrack, part post-rock adventure. Once again, he’s miles out there, mystical, astral, and yet still making music that works on the dancefloor.

Night Music is our series of late live shows with a midnight curfew. Past guests have included Machinedrum, Daedalus, Com Truise, Tiger & Woods, Auntie Flo and Koreless.

O2 ABC, Glasgow
Milburn embark on their biggest ever UK tour in November 2017 to celebrate the release of their third studio album.

As comebacks go, the return of milburn has been a pretty bloody successful one. What began as a handful of one off shows early last year culminated in a self curated festival on Sheffield's famous Don Valley Bowl in front of 8,000 adoring fans in June 2017. To put the whole thing in perspective, in just over a year the band have sold a little under 20,000 tickets in their hometown (no that's not a typo) and a further 10,000 around the rest of the UK. Add to that a raucous European tour and a number of high profile festival slots, then you begin to understand just what this band still means to people.

This is not just another 'pay the mortgage off' style calculated comeback either. To cement their place as one of the UK's best guitar bands, the lads now return with an accomplished third studio album which was produced by the highly rated Bill Ryder-Jones at Parr Street studios in Liverpool (set for release on 15/09/17). With support from Steve Lamacq and Shaun Keaveney at BBC 6 music, it's clear that milburn are still making music that is as relevant as ever.
