Antwon

Tuesday 24th April

Antwon + Dylan Ross

Antwon’s unique style makes all the more sense when one acknowledges his punk roots. From his Bay Area powerviolence-steeped past through his tenure in filth-ridden hardcore band Leather, Antwon’s love of hip-hop has been offset by his appreciation for the more brutal niches of underground rock. Despite rock and hip-hop’s domination in three decades of pop culture, few attempts at bridging the stylistic divide between the two communities have yielded respectable success stories. Perhaps the most obvious reason for the long list of failures in this brand of crossover stems from the glut of ham-fisted appropriations from guitar-centric artists who have no real grasp of hip-hop’s roots. For every Check Your Head, there are a million Significant Otherequivalents. Ultimately, the ability to operate in both worlds with any sort of style and credibility has required a genuine understanding and appreciation for their distinctively innate qualities. You can’t just cram rap verses into a rock format or lazily sample a Metallica hook and expect intriguing results. The magic of Antwon’s craft is that he manages to apply the aesthetics of crucial underground bands—the succinct outbursts of Infest, the mechanical throb and lush layers of Jesu, the cocaine-night nostalgia of Chromatics—into a hip-hop format.

Antwon’s deft ability to absorb and recontextualize disparate musical elements has not gone unrecognized. While it’s no surprise that his refreshing approach has won an audience in the hip-hop world, it’s the percolating excitement over his tracks in the fickle indie rock press world and the hardcore-matinee-level crowd eruptions at his shows that really demonstrate Antwon’s burgeoning position as one of the leading voices in the rap community. With this building fanbase sending him out for performances across the U.S., U.K., and the far reaches of the European continent, Antwon’s cross-pollinated empire looms larger every day.

She Past Away + Selofan & Soft Riot

She Past Away is dark-wave with a reworked 80’s sound. Signature guitar sound of the post-punk era, combined with minimalist poetry in Turkish. Often an outburst of sentimental anxiety through the nihilistic mind-frame, it is personal. Yet it is broad, a wondering mind brave enough to question taboo and existence.

She Past Away is driving, it is mesmerizing. It is a haunt.

Peter Cat + A. Wesley Chung + The Violet Kind

PETER CAT + A. WESLEY CHUNG + THE VIOLET KIND
 

A night of twisty, turny, abstract indie good stuff from Glasgow (with a bit of Long Beach, CA thrown in for good measure).

Headlining are friendly neighbourhood experimental chamber poppers PETER CAT (featuring current & former members of The Cosmic Dead, Halfrican, bell lungs) with a lush full-band performance; they’ve been described as having “just the right mix of brilliance and weirdness” by The Metaphorical Boat. Their new single & video ‘Hand Through Hair’ (mixed & directed by Chris McCrory of Catholic Action) rolls out in May, with a wide-ranging promotional tour taking in dates in London, Brighton, Rome and elsewhere in southern Italy. FFO: Sparks, The Divine Comedy, FFS, The Magnetic Fields.

The immensely talented A. WESLEY CHUNG (previously of noughties’ indie-folk collective Boris Smile and currently of LP Records artist The Great Albatross) will be performing his solo material with a full complement of musicians; The Line Of Best Fit recently described his new single ‘Restless’ as “both uplifting and blues-inducing…a moving tribute to missing the lonesome crowded west”.

THE VIOLET KIND are an exciting indie rock trio, playing catchy melodies entwined with bright chords and an experimental rhythm section. They’ve received critical acclaim from the likes of The Skinny, Tenement TV and Team Rock, and were named as ‘UK Artist of the Week” by The Vinyl District. Wreck My Brain hailed them as “an amalgamation of the more comprehensible side of shoegaze, the early years of Paramore and the sweet, sweet sounds of Californian lo-fi”.

Unsheltered: Chapter and Verse: An Evening with William McCarthy of Augustines

Since the disbanding of Augustines in late 2016, singer William McCarthy stayed touring internationally and has quietly emerged as a force, writing his debut record “Shelter” as well as accompanying book “Unsheltered”. Thus cementing his place in music as a visceral spokesman of independent rock and roll!

White Hills + GNOD

GNOD
Since their inception, Gnod’s musical trajectory has been one of constant fluctuation borne out of an incessant need to discover new sonic worlds. Beginning life as a shamanic drone ensemble, at times fitting up to 15 members on stage, these early rituals informed the core ideals that have come to define the group in their years of activity; community and trance-inducing repetition. Throughout a discography that has amassed dozens of CD-R’s, cassettes and vinyls for labels like Rocket Recordings, Trensmat, Krokodilo (Blackest Ever Black) and their own Tesla Tapes imprint, a restless yet organic need mutate their music into new realms has had critics clawing for comparative touch stones. Acts as far ranging as Hawkwind, Popul Vuh, Pan Sonic, Sunburned Hand of the Man and Pharaoh Sanders have all been referenced in attempt to pinpoint their output, one that has historically never aped any genre but with each record furthered their own unique place in truly independent music. It is the exact same dedication to the live arena that has seen Gnod become one of the most celebrated live bands in the UK and secured them multiple tours and festival appearances throughout Europe. In these times of cash in hand ‘glory days’ reunions and bands simply rehashing their recorded material pitch perfect live, Gnod are a stark and welcome anomaly. Already moving on from the barley released and universally acclaimed epic ‘Infinity Machines’, the current live incarnation of the band is characterised by a crushing, cataclysmic new protest music whose call to arms gravitas offers a meaningful defiance to Cameron’s Austerity Britain. Gnod have taken their very namesake and charged it with bludgeoning new edge that is as euphoric as it is nihilistic. It is one that stridently attests to the group’s spiritual center, one of community that is inclusive and respectful of its audience yet will never placate to their expectations. Instead, Gnod offer a gateway to an aural black hole and along with firm guiding hand, the opportunity to dive head and body first into a powerfully new psychedelic maelstrom full of possibilities.

WHITE HILLS
Fuzzed out psych rockers WHITE HILLS have a new album on Thrill Jockey. White Hills are proponents of psychedelia as transformation. The music made by Dave W. and Ego Sensation is risky and cutting edge, rooted in dystopian futurism and hyperconscious of society’s constant desire for a new and better drug.

That progressive aesthetic is at the heart of White Hills’ newest album Walks For Motorists, a radically stripped-down record that emphasizes rhythm and groove. The album bursts forth with a new kind of intensity, one born out of laser-focused precision and detail-oriented songwriting. Possibly surprising to fans familiar with the Hawkwindian guitar squall of earlier albums, the songs on Walks For Motorists began as a keyboard melody or bass line, and several songs on the album don’t even feature guitar at all. This is propulsive, open music, surreal to its core but made to inspire people to get out of their seats and move.

White Hills has been developing an entirely new live set focusing on new music, and will be playing many major festivals in 2015, including Roadburn, Primavera,and ATP Iceland. As anyone who has seen the band knows, they can command stages both gargantuan and intimate, and are one of the most legendary live acts in psychedelic rock today. The band’s relentless touring of the US and Europe has gained them a massive grassroots following worldwide, and even more touring is planned throughout 2015.

Deep Dark Woods + Kacey & Clayton

For nearly ten years Canadian’s Deep Dark Woods developed an international following with particular success in the Americana realm, nominated alongside Alabama Shakes and Dawes for Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2012 Americana Music Awards. Now wrest out of the woods, their outlook is decidedly more macabre, tapping into a rich vein of gothic surrealism that aligns with some of the great murder balladeers of our time. With Appalachian soil under his fingernails, they write in a deep tradition of bleak and forlorn storytelling, drawing lines from Ireland to Tennessee, the Oxford Girl to Folsom Prison.

Scott Matthews

Singer-songwriter Scott Matthews grew up listening to Led Zeppelin, Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan, got his first guitar when he was seven and knew then that music was his future.

His first album ‘Passing Stranger’ caught the attention of Janice Long, Mark Radcliffe and Lauren Laverne and won him the Ivor Novello award for the single ‘Elusive’.

He’s toured with the Foo Fighters, Robert Plant and Rufus Wainwright and his folk, blues and rock fusion continue to attract a devoted band of supporters.

Scott’s latest studio album ‘Home Part 2’ attracted incredible reviews, and new solo acoustic album will be out in Spring 2018 on own label Shedio Records

Screaming Females

New Jersey DIY-punk luminaries Screaming Females announced their seventh studio album All At Once, due out February 23, 2018 on Don Giovanni Records.

It will be made available in various formats including Digital, CD, Double-LP vinyl with a Limited Edition 7” and a Deluxe Limited Edition LPx3 with the 7” and an exclusive bonus LP of album demos. The band collaborated with producer Matt Bayles (Pearl Jam, Mastodon), setting out to make an album in the spirit of a salon-style gallery show, where larger pieces provide an eye-level focal point to a galaxy of smaller works. Concision took a back seat to experimentation, with arrangements meant to evoke the energy and spontaneity of their live performances.

Now more than a decade into its existence, Screaming Females can claim something that few of their peers possess in a comparable capacity: experience. “When you’ve been a band for 12 or 13 years, the resources can dry up and you just go back to what feels comfortable,” explains Dougherty. “The other option is that you develop stuff that a younger band would not have been able to do.” All At Once is the evidence of that growth — in its sprawl and scope, but also in its subtleties. “A song like ‘Glass House’ is something we knew we were capable of, but it took a while to fully embrace,” says Paternoster. “It’s very simple — just bass, drums, and two simple riffs. In the past, I might have insisted on adding more. Practicing self-restraint is something I have consciously been trying to do.”

The expectations that surround being in a band have changed a lot since Screaming Females started up in 2005. All At Once is a reminder there’s a hopeful and joyful energy to underground music-making. Patience, perseverance, and long term dedication still work. Be sure to catch Screaming Females on tour with Street Eaters and at their album release shows next year. Full list of dates here.

The Underground Youth

Started in 2008 as the creative project of Craig Dyer, The Underground Youth’s blend of darkly cinematic psychedelia and raw post-punk music has developed a worldwide loyal fan base that continues to grow.

Since 2012 the band have completed a number of lengthy tours throughout Europe seeing them consistently sell out shows and receive widespread praise for their festival performances.

Through independent record label Fuzz Club Records TUY have released 8 LP’s and 3 EP’s, receiving both a cult following and critical acclaim all of their original releases have since sold out and been re-mastered, re-pressed and re-released on different formats.

Having relocated from Manchester to Berlin before the release of their 8th LP ‘What Kind Of Dystopian Hellhole Is This?’ TUY are currently working on their 9th album.

The live band currently consists of Craig Dyer (Vocals, Guitar) Olya Dyer (Drums) Max James (Bass) and Leonard Kaage (Guitar). Combining walls of noise, raw energy and catchy melodies, TUY create a captivating live experience that is not to be missed.

Hamtramck16

Sunday 27th May

Moon King

Moon King is the alias of producer, singer and songwriter Daniel Benjamin. Born in Toronto, the musician spent 2016 in Detroit, where the musically fertile and offbeat neighborhood of Hamtramck became both his home and the inspiration for a new set of recordings. Hamtramck ’16 documents his arrival into a new and unfamiliar environment combined with a growing obsession for underground dance music, a sound and spirit that has always felt right at home in Detroit. Collaborating with local artists and musicians, and having the freedom to stretch out after several years of constant touring, Daniel put together a completely new band with a sound drawing from dance music’s early days, from synthpop, disco and house music up through the more pop-oriented songcraft of the Bee Gees or Prince. Daniel’s attention to detail in production, and willingness to break the mold of what he sees as his own potential, have made him an interesting figure to watch. With Hamtramck ’16 he has created a lo-fi pop gem that will leave listeners eager to hear what comes next.

GospelbeacH + The Hanging Stars

The second album from GospelbeacH continues to deftly honor the grand tradition of West Coast rock and roll. This time around it’s more 70’s FM rock than 60’s AM gold, more cosmo than country with a theme of timeless love.

Straightforward, inviting songwriting and singing by Brent Rademaker (a founding member of Beachwood Sparks).

Warm classic production and tight harmonies once again by guitarist/vocalist Jason Soda. Recorded in Los Angeles at Palomino Sound, Jason’s new 1970’s vintage artisan recording studio. Third GospelbeacH core member Jonny Niemanns cascading piano, organ and mellotron fill out the albums rich sound.

In the tradition of the Troubadour scene of the 1970’s Another Summer of Love features some of the GospelbeacH friends and Los Angeles’s finest players and singers including, Pearl Charles, Miranda Lee Richards, members of Wilco, Mapache, Eels, and pickers from the Grand Ole Echo.

The album artwork features reflective photography by GospelbeacH guitarist/singer Neal Casal and Allah-Las drummer Matthew Correia.

If you’ve been listless and laid low by apathy, there’s only one prescription – more Starcrawler!
 
The dynamic young L.A.-bred quartet has been wiping the jaded looks off audiences across their hometown since making their live debut back in 2016, dragging the unsuspecting into their universe with hooks that sink into the synapses and refuse to let go – and enough electricity to light up the entire Sunset Strip.
 
The jolts they deliver come from a number of directions, none more direct than singer Arrow de Wilde, whose penchant for intense, sometimes assaultive, physicality is matched by a full-throated hard rock wail that tightropes between glam-rock sensuality and full-metal-jacket menace.

Atlas Run + Trimm

Scruff of the Neck & Fortune presents

Atlas Run
Atlas Run are a four-piece Indie/Alt Rock band from Glasgow. The band combine personal, intimate lyrics with soaring hooks and layered instrumentation to create a sound which is infectious, energetic and distinctly Scottish.
After launching in late-2016, Atlas Run have gone from strength to strength. In 2017, they released their debut EP Depths which turned the heads of many prominent music sites such as Tenement TV and One Stop Record Shop, as well as securing a nomination for the Best of British Unsigned Band Award in partnership with Vocalzone.
Having gigged extensively around Scotland and embarked on their first UK tour in November 2017 with Ayrshire Rockers Losing Ground, the band look to take their energetic, exhilarating live performance to new audiences across the UK and further afield.
The band also have new material in the works which they hope will help them reach a greater audience. With an indie-pop sheen inspired by The Xcerts and Blaenavon mixed with syncopated, highly danceable rhythms, the new singles are bound to provide a perfect summer soundtrack.

The Weirdos

The Weirdos may have been the first punk band formed in Los Angeles, although great debate exists over whether that title belongs to The Weirdos, The Zeros, or The Dils. Nonetheless, they made the strongest impression of the early bunch, with John Denney’s clear and tuneful scream, Dix Denney and Cliff Roman’s Raw Power guitars, and Dave Trout and Nickey Beat’s propulsive rhythm. Like some other early punks, the Weirdos created humor and thrills by pushing nihilism to absurd extremes: as The Randoms’ single “ABCD/Let’s Get Rid of New York” (1977 Dangerhouse) advocated wiping New York City off the map, The Weirdos’ first single urged the destruction of all music.

King-Tuff---JPG

Tuesday 14th August

King Tuff

When asked to describe the title track from his new record, Kyle Thomas—aka King Tuff—takes a deep breath. “It’s a song about hitting rock bottom,” he says. “I didn’t even know what I wanted to do anymore, but I still had this urge—this feeling—like there was this possibility of something else I could be doing… and then I just followed that possibility. To me, that’s what songwriting, and art in general, is about. You’re chasing something, there is something out there calling to you and you’re trying to get at it. ‘The Other’ is basically where songs come from. It’s the hidden world. It’s the mystery. It’s the invisible hand that guides you whenever you make something. It’s the thing I had to rediscover—the sort of voice I had to follow—to bring me back to making music again in a way that felt true and good.”

After years of non-stop touring, culminating in a particularly arduous stint in support of 2014’s Black Moon Spell, Thomas found himself back in Los Angeles experiencing the flipside of the ultimate rock and roll cliche—that of an exhausted musician suddenly unsure where to go or what to do, held prisoner by a persona that he never meant to create, that bore little resemblance to the worn out person they now saw in the mirror. Thomas was suddenly at odds with the storied rock and roll misfit mythology that he’d spent the past ten years, four full-length albums, a handful of EPs, and multiple live records, unwittingly bringing to life.

“At that point I had literally been on tour for years,” recalls Thomas. “It was exhausting. Physically and mentally. At the end of it I was like, I just can’t do this. I’m essentially playing this character of King Tuff, this crazy party monster, and I don’t even drink or do drugs. It had become a weird persona, which people seemed to want from me, but it was no longer me. I just felt like it had gotten away from me.
