13The Low AnthemBroadcast, Glasgow
The Low Anthem return from an extraordinary five-year journey with EYELAND, an unprecedented collection of multi-dimensional future folk crafted with uncommon vision and emotional depth. The Providence, RI-based band’s fifth full-length recording, EYELAND began as a “vague and rather abstract” short story by co-founder/singer/guitarist Ben Knox Miller, based around the “sonic mythology of a moth’s dreams.” The tall tale became real life as The Low Anthem immersed themselves in the creation of their own Eyeland Studios, developing Providence’s once obsolete Columbus Theatre into an innovative and in-demand recording space and live concert venue. EYELAND proves a prism of the album’s inner themes, refracting Miller and co-founding drummer/multi-instrumentalist Jeff Prystowsky’s sonic escapades into a full-blown Möbius strip of music and meaning. The Low Anthem’s lofty aspirations and creative capriciousness resonate throughout songs like “The Pepsi Moon” and “Behind The Airport Mirror,” their elegiac arrangements and lyrical frankness marked by shimmering ambience and a hauntingly defiant tension. Psychedelic in the truest sense of that overused word, EYELAND is a perspective-shifting musical experience at once elliptical and intangible yet still precise and powerfully personal.

15VodunBroadcast, Glasgow
VŌDŪN are a heavy, weird & soulful tribe from London - A raw and powerful slice of voodoo fuelled turbo-metal riffage not to be missed.

Featuring two members of one of London’s finest underground bands, Invasion, who disbanded in 2011, Vodun have taken the basic blueprint of that band, added a huge West African voodoo influence and ramped up the intensity across the board. Oya (vocals) and Ogun (drums) found a kindred spirit in The Marassa (guitar) and emerged as a more technically accomplished, musically aggressive and energetic band.

They are lucky to have at their disposal an awesome drummer, amazing guitarist and a truly brilliant vocalist in Chantal Brown as Oya (ex ‘Do Me Bad Things’ front woman) – a new kind of power. They rock like no one else and are also a mesmerising live experience.

Living Body is the new project from Leeds-based Chicagoan Jeff T. Smith (formerly, Juffage) featuring longtime collaborators Katie Harkin (Harkin, Sky Larkin, Wild Beasts, Sleater-Kinney) and Tom Evans (Vessels). Rising from the ashes of their acclaimed “Sonic Cauldron” concert at Left Bank Leeds in 2013, the group is now augmented by new and additional live members Alice Rowan (Mayshe-Mayshe) & Sarah Statham (Esper Scout). Expanding on the need for music to bring joy into the lives of others, and Smith’s fascination with the contortion of the pop song into a uniquely imaginative and immediate form, Living body aims to exist in a world of skin and information overload in 2016.

2ImarhanBroadcast, Glasgow
The band’s debut album is intent on dismantling the ideas western listeners have about popularized Tuareg music. This new wave of Tuareg musicians sound very different to the desert distortion that accompanies groups like Mdou Moctar or Group Inerane. Instead, it finds a calm and passionate soul, provides sumptuous slow burners, and a complexity of composition that hasn’t been demonstrated by previous music exported from the Saharan people’s musical repertoire.

Even if the band has a direct DNA link to trail blazers Tinariwen - (Eyadou Ag Leche of Tinawiren is a cousin of frontman Sadam, and guided their evolution and produced and co-wrote several songs on this album), their poetry and flow has a more integrally urban base than the ancestral tamashek poetry and traditional rhythms of their elders, Tinariwen. Instead they offer something much more fresh and intricate; there is a lot of sensitivity and space in these jams, a lot of room for your mind to ponder and drift.

This intimacy of Imarhan’s sound is no coincidence. In the language of the Kel Tamashek people ‘Imarhan’ means ‘the ones I care about’ - Iyad Moussa Ben Abderahmane aka Sadam, Tahar Khaldi, Hicham Bouhasse, Haiballah Akhamouk and Abdelkader Ourzig all grew up near each other in Tamanrasset, Southern Algeria, in a Tuareg community of Northern Malian descent. The giant divide between their spiritual home and physical home is heard in their tracks: the funkier groove of Western Africa, the emptier, subtle tones of Saharan Traditional folk music and the fire and romance of Algerian Rai music. No other Tuareg release to date has had such a variance of rhythms, tempo and feeling.

Imarhan’s record is a heads-up to anyone who thought Tuareg music as just one thing: it’s an invitation to closer listening and also an album that will stay fresh for a long time and influence those from the Sahara and beyond.

Show Me The Body are a Queens hardcore/hip-hop hybrid whose membership runs in the same circles as Ratking.

13The Oh HellosCCA, Glasgow


*Tickets on sale Friday 20th May at 10am*

Dear Wormwood, the latest album from beloved brother and sister act The Oh Hellos, is out now. It was recorded, piece by piece, in the house where Maggie and Tyler live in San Marcos, TX, and much like The Oh Hellos' live performance, the album presents two alternating faces: at times delicate, intimate, affectionate; and at others, soaring and towering and joyfully explosive. Their influences range from Fleet Foxes and Sufjan Stevens to The Middle East and the Muppets, bending and blending styles and genres into a unique mixture of eclectic folk rock.

Since forming, The Oh Hellos has earned a rightful reputation as a very special live act. The siblings are joined on stage by an often-epic ensemble—a rotating roster of pickers and players numbering as many as 13 at any given time.

The Oh Hellos are Maggie and Tyler Heath from Southern Texas. The two began making music together in 2011 with a song written for their mom’s birthday, followed later that year by their self-titled, self-produced, independently released EP. The 4-track recording featured the hit song “Hello My Old Heart” which received national airplay in the US and currently has over nine million streams on Spotify.

22Julianna BarwickElectric Circus, Edinburgh
Conceived and self-produced over the past year in a variety of locations, the ominous, compelling Will is a departure from 2013’s Alex Somers-produced Nepenthe. If that last record conjured images of gentle, thick fog rolling over desolate mountains, then Will is a late afternoon thunderstorm, a cathartic collision of sharp and soft textures that sounds looming and restorative all at once.

The electric current that runs through the album takes on various shapes of intoxicating instability. Featuring contributions from Thomas Arsenault (Mas Ysa), Dutch cellist Maarten Vos and percussionist, Jamie Ingalls (Chairlift, Tanlines, Beverly), Will is largely a product of ups and downs, a reflection of a life lived somewhere in between transience and standing still. The beguiling, beautifully complicated Will is the result of that curiosity, and proof of Barwick’s irresistibly engaging talent as a composer and vocalist.

13NothingBroadcast, Glasgow
People often wonder why Philadelphia's NOTHING are so damn loud. In the case of many artists, the volume stems from a preoccupation with negativity, misanthropy and the human condition. But while NOTHING's attitude lines up with these ideas, their personality isn't one that the band picked from a list of cliches. Instead, it's one that's been molded by the band's own experiences, from family troubles and personal tragedy to a string of bad luck that Murphy's Law would balk at. And that volume, rather than a selling point, is the only way the band has been able to translate the difficulty of real-life events into musical form.

Formed in Blackpool (Great Britain) by brothers Larry and Vin Cassidy in 1978. Section 25 were initially mentored by Joy Division, and went on to record four albums for Factory Records between 1980 and 1986. The first of these, Always Now, combined post-punk textures with spacey psychedelia, produced by Martin "Zero" Hannett. Their third, From The Hip, produced in 1984 by New Order's Bernard Sumner, explored electro terrain, and spawned the oft-sampled techno hit Looking From A Hilltop.

Now recognized as a leading genre band, Section 25 continue to play across the UK,Europe and America.

18Junius MeyvantBroadcast, Glasgow
Júníus Meyvant is the artist name of Vestmann Islands born singer-songwriter Unnar Gísli Sigurmundsson. As a young boy he was an eccentric to a small degree and he only loved two things, skateboarding and painting. Every now and then he asked the Muses if he should learn to play an instrument but his wild and free behavior terminated his dreams as he was quickly suspended out of music school. All through his teens he rambled on without even considering becoming a musician or even playing any instrument.

In his early twenties Unnar stumbled upon a beat up guitar at his parents’ house and started noodling around. By playing the guitar he managed to tame his inner beast and his sense for songs and melodies burst like rockets. The uncontrollable urge for writing music and constant flow of ideas kept him tossing and turning every night and day forever and a day. For a while he filtered his ideas through a band that didn’t live up to his creative requirements so he decided to undertake his alter ego Júníus Meyvant.

The sound of Júníus Meyvant is a rich and afflicted take on freaky folk pop with a familiar and soulful feel. The feeling you get from listening to Júníus equally as comfortable as resting under a thick wool blanket with a hot cup of cocoa in or even when one settles with an exotic beverage on a hot sandy beach far and away.

27Colleen Green & Cassie RamoneBroadcast, Glasgow


This latest collection of songs follows a newly 30-year-old Green as she carefully navigates a minefield of emotion. Her firm belief in true love is challenged by the inner turmoil caused by entering modern adulthood, but that doesn’t mean that her faith is defeated. With a nod to her heroes, sentimental SoCal punks The Descendents, Green too wonders what it will be like when she gets old. Throughout songs such as “Some People,” “Deeper Than Love,” and the illustrative title track, the listener has no choice but to feel the sympathetic growing pains of revelatory maturation and the anxieties that come along with it.

Sonically the album is a major change for the LA-based songwriter, who has come to be known for her homemade recordings and merchandise. Her past offerings have been purely Green; testaments to her self-sufficiency and, perhaps, trepidation. This time, she’s got a little help from her friends: the full band heard here includes JEFF the Brotherhood’s Jake Orrall and Diarrhea Planet’s Casey Weissbuch, who collaborated with Green over ten days at Sputnik Sound in Nashville, TN.

I Want to Grow Up is an experience, not unlike life: questioning, learning, taking risks. And in true CG fashion, a quote from a beloved 90s film seems the perfect summation: ”Understanding is reached only after confrontation.”

Blasted grassland, the thin ribbon line of the freeway unspooling beneath wheels, skies stretched wide between mountaintop. It is dream music, foggy, atmospheric, the melodies you hear while you gazing out through fingerprint smeared windows into a constantly moving, metamorphing – landscape…. It makes sense then, that BRONCHO, born out of out a film project, its initial incarnation sparked when founder Ryan Lindsey was asked to create music, “to set to an early 80s punk film.” “That’s all I knew about it,” he remembers, “they were looking for songs that touched this era. And songs kept coming to me and turned something on inside of me artistically.” Lindsey found himself in the midst of prolific run of songs and he liked the idea “of starting out there and seeing where it could go.”.

5White DenimO2 ABC, Glasgow
Frantic and freewheeling indie rock combo White Denim hail from Austin, Texas, where bandmates Josh Block (drums), Steve Terebecki (bass), and James Petralli (guitars, vocals) first set up shop in 2005. All three members were veterans of the Austin scene; Block and Petralli had previously played together in the alt-rock band Parque Torche, while Terebecki was a member of Peach Train. Drawing from a number of punk and garage rock influences, the group fashioned a hard-hitting sound with crunchy guitar riffs and frantic energy. Let's Talk About It, a 7" EP, marked the band's studio debut in 2007. After releasing another EP in 2008, the group retooled many of its older songs for Explosion, White Denim's first full-length release. The band had amassed a sizable audience in the U.K. by this point, prompting the sophomore album Fits to hit British shores several months before its American release in October 2009. The following year, the group expanded its lineup to include second guitarist Austin Jenkins, and shortly afterwards self-released Last Day of Summer as a way for the bandmembers to clear out song ideas they'd been bouncing around for the past four years. In 2011, White Denim released their fourth full-length album, D, on Downtown Records. The following year they fleshed out their sound with fourth member Austin Jenkins (guitar) and embarked on a tour with Wilco. After some late-night conversations, Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy agreed to lend a hand in the production of their fifth full-length release, Corsicana Lemonade, which was released in late 2013. The band quickly followed up with The Pretty Green EP in 2014. In 2015, Josh Block and Austin Jenkins left the lineup, and James Petralli and Steve Terebecki recruited two new members to take their places, guitarist Jonathan Horne and drummer Jeffrey Olson. The new edition of White Denim went into the studio with producer Ethan Johns and returned with their sixth full-length album, Stiff, released in March 2016.

‘United Crushers’ (March 4, Mom + Pop / Memphis Industries) is POLIÇA’s third full length release and most remarkable album to date. The band, which includes Channy Leaneagh, dual drummers, Drew Christopherson and Ben Ivascu and Chris Beirden on bass with producer Ryan Olson at the helm, collectively wrote the album in Minneapolis in the winter of 2015 during their first true break from two years of touring. They recorded it at the renowned Sonic Ranch Studios in El Paso, TX, nestled just a few short miles from the US/Mexico border. The new album builds on POLIÇA’s signature synthesizer and percussion-heavy sound with more complex arrangements and a bigger, crisper hi fi punch due to the new approach they took to writing and recording together, all in the same
room. There's a tighter groove to these songs and a more vulnerable quality to them, especially in Leaneagh's singing. Her incredible vocal range is on display throughout, beautifully raw and less electronically affected than on previous recordings.

In September 2016, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club is releasing its new album ‘The Commandments According to SCAC’. It has been twenty-four 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.

Whatever the true source of this transformation, The Commandments According to SCAC’ sounds like a band marshalling its creative inspiration to mark out a new chapter of its existence. When you get to see the Auto Club tour following the album’s release, you’ll get to see an already mighty band reinvigorated by this new spirit as well as by the fire that has long burned in its collective belly.

Los Angeles quartet Allah-Las announce the release of their third album Calico Review, and first on Mexican Summer, on September 9th , 2016. To mark the announcement, Allah-Las are revealing their first new album track and video, directed by Robbie Simon, for “Famous Phone Figure”, watch the video below. The song cradles character sketches over delicate strains of string instruments with a careful underlining of a three-note drumming theme that casts a phantom sadness over the proceedings of an unknowable woman. It’s a prime example of how the Allah-Las so master exerting a touch both light and steady enough to bring your mood to where theirs resides.

21GOATO2 ABC, Glasgow
Swedish psych outfit GOAT are back with a UK tour in October, including a date at the O2 ABC Glasgow.

“I Sing In Silence,” is the A-side from the forthcoming GOAT single. The new visual was directed by Henrik Nyblom and Christofer Högberg. The directorial duo had this to offer about the video: “It was an intense experience where we could visualize our art. It’s a short trip of the life spectre. Look close and you might find easter eggs.”

Stereogum premiered the video and had this to say, “Through its distorted filmography, the video incites a celebration of this brightness and of the quiet and calm that exists, too. As a hooded figured engages with the jovial beauty in the world, they illustrate just how powerful the connectivity of it all can be…The song itself is a folksy psych-pop lope that could almost pass for Woods covering Animal Collective, so a trek into nature is highly appropriate here (see video premiere Monday, May 9th).”

5Whitney + Julia JacklinCCA, Glasgow
*On sale on Thursday, 26 May 2016 at 10AM*

Whitney make casually melancholic music that combines the wounded drawl of Townes Van Zandt, the rambunctious energy of Jim Ford, the stoned affability of Bobby Charles, the American otherworldliness of The Band, and the slack groove of early Pavement. Their debut, Light Upon the Lake, is due in June on Secretly Canadian, and it marks the culmination of a short, but incredibly intense, creative period for the band. To say that Whitney is more than the sum of its parts would be a criminal understatement. Formed from the core of guitarist Max Kakacek and singing drummer Julien Ehrlich, the band itself is something bigger, something visionary, something neither of them could have accomplished alone.

Classic and modern at the same time, they revel in concrete details, evocative turns of phrase, and thorny emotions that don't have exact names. These ten songs on Light Upon the Lake sound like they could have been written at any time in the last fifty years. Ehrlich and Kakacek emerge as imaginative and insightful songwriting partners, impressive in their scope and restraint as they mold classic rock lyricism into new and personal shapes without sound revivalist or retro. “I'm searching for those golden
days,” sings Ehrlich, with a subtle ripple of something that sounds like hope, on the track “Golden Days”. It's a song that defines Whitney as a band. “There's a lot of true feeling behind these songs,” says Ehrlich. “We wanted them to have a part of our personalities in them. We wanted the songs to have soul.” - Stephen Duesner

Okkervil River have announced new album 'Away' and share new song 'Okkervil River R.I.P'. We are delighted to announce that Will Sheff & co. will play at Glasgow Stereo Cafe Bar on Sunday 13th November. Listen to the new track below now.



Some words from Will Sheff on the new album:
The new Okkervil River album is called Away. I didn’t plan to make it and initially wasn’t sure if it was going to be an Okkervil River album or if I’d ever put it out. I wrote the songs during a confusing time of transition in my personal and professional life and recorded them quickly with a brand new group of musicians. I got together the best New York players I could think of, people whose playing and personalities I was fans of and who came more out of a jazz or avant garde background, and we cut the songs live in one or two takes – trying to keep things as natural and immediate as possible – over three days in a studio on Long Island that hosts the Neve 8068 console which recorded Steely Dan’s Aja and John Lennon’s Double Fantasy. Iasked Marissa Nadler to sing on it and got the composer Nathan Thatcher to write some beautiful orchestral arrangements, we recorded them with the classical ensemble yMusic and then I mixed the record with Jonathan Wilson out in Los Angeles.

Dinosaur Jr. - Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not

Let's face facts -- in 2016 it is remarkable that there's a new Dinosaur Jr. album to go ape over. After all, the original line-up of the band (J Mascis, Lou Barlow & Murph) only recorded three full albums during their initial run in the 1980s. Everyone was gob-smacked when they reunited in 2005. Even more so when they opted to stay together, as they have for 11 years now. And with the release of Give a Glimpse, this trio has released more albums in the 21st Century than they did in the 20th. It's enough to make a man take a long, thoughtful slug of maple-flavored bourbon and count some lucky stars.

With all the insanity that is stalking the Earth in 2016, it's nice to have something to rely on. Who'd've dared to think it'd be Dinosaur Jr.?

25Scott MatthewsThe Lemon Tree, Aberdeen
Scott Matthews, born 15th Jan 1976 in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, UK, was raised in a very musical family. His father was a drummer and introduced Scott to such iconic artists as Marc Bolan, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan.

Upon acquiring his first guitar at the tender age of seven, It didn't take long before Scott realised that music was his true calling in life. Scott's diverse musical taste would later lead to experimentations with funk, soul and indie rock, with various local bands, before finally deciding to embark on a career as a solo artist.

In 2003 Scott played his first ever solo show, and was spotted by a local dj, who would eventually become Scott’s manager. By 2004 Scott had signed a recording contract with independent label San Remo Records, the label that would release Scott's 2006 ground-breaking album "Passing Stranger".

Passing Stranger contained an eclectic mix of styles and feaured the world renowned tabla player, Sukvinder Singh Namdari, who had played alongside such artists as Ry Cooder and Ravi Shankar and it wasn't long before Scott was getting national airplay from the likes of Janice Long, Mark Radcliffe and Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2.

Scott's first single "Elusive" was released in September 2006. The single received much airplay from BBC Radio DJs Jo Whiley, Dermot O'Leary, and Zane Lowe. Lowe played "Elusive" once each night as his chosen Single of the Week. Matthews also visited the station to perform "Elusive" and other songs from the album in May and August 2006.

In May 2007, "Elusive" won the Ivor Novello Award for "Best Song Musically and Lyrically".

The extensive media attention lead to a licensing deal with Universal Island Records, who were the releasing label for Scott's 2nd album "Elsewhere", which was released in May 2009 to critical acclaim.

Scott has not only embarked on a number of sell-out headline tours, but has also been fortunate enough to tour with some of the world's most respected artists, including, Foo Fighters, Snow Patrol, Rufus Wainwright,Tori Amos and Robert Plant.

Scott is about to release a live album, recorded at Shepherd's Bush Empire, London and is also currently recording his 3rd album, entitled "What the Night Delivers". Both of which will be released on the San Remo label.
