MOSS LIME tonight and CAFE OTO Xmas Fair this Sunday!


Good morning!
Here’s a swift reminder that tonight we’ll be pitching up at the Old Blue Last with a marvellous show of minimal post punk. We have francophones MOSS LIME making their debut in London, alongside always-awesome locals AS ONDAS and Swedish/English duo WHALO coming down from Nottingham too. Tickets are £5 on the door from 8pm, with live music kicking off 30 mins later. Really looking forward to it, hopefully see you there!

MOSS LIME
AS ONDAS
WHALO
Monday 7 December
Old Blue Last, 38 Great Eastern St, Shoreditch, EC2A 3ES

MOSS LIME are a Montreal based band, made up of sisters Charlotte Bonamour and Hélène Barbier from Lille, France, their former roommate Caitlin Pinder-Doede from Toronto. They spent the summer 2014 in Parc Petite Italie in Montréal, enjoying food and beverages from Lalime. One day they went to the swimming pool and another day they decided to play music together in a basement with a great dehumidifier. Inspired by local punk bands with similarly unpretentious starts, Moss Lime booked their first show at a neighbourhood bar, performing a short set of their four original songs and one cover song, an almost unrecognisable reinterpretation of European club hit “Calabria 2007″. At the end of the summer, a few days before Charlotte was supposed to move back to France, the group went to record with Peter Woodford (Freelove Fenner) at his and Caitlin Loney’s all-analog home studio, The Bottle Garden, with the intention of producing what they referred to as a “souvenir”, to document their short summer as a band, Fixture Records released the tape EP ‘July First’. After this, the band started getting offers to play shows with local bands and even landed a last-minute spot at this year’s POP Montreal festival. Moss Lime’s melodic minimalism, idiosyncratic vocals, and strong sense of play, as witnessed in this promising first collection of recordings, already shows signs of further experimentation to come. They will release their first LP in the next few weeks on Telephon Explosion.

AS ONDAS are a band with fresh ideas, featuring members of Dog Legs, Shopping and Wachi Wachi they start their race with a sprint. With a spartan drum, bass and guitar lineup, As Ondas deliver up a delirious, chorus-drenched prom punk alongside the occasional post punk meditation.
https://asondas.bandcamp.com/music

WHALO are a Swedish/English duo based in Nottingham with melancholic tendencies and a love for the DIY approach. After forming at the start of 2015, Whalo quietly released their debut EP “Sleepy” in September, a collection of hazy pop songs recorded in a cold Coventry garage. They are now gearing up to play a handful of live shows in the UK whilst slowly writing and recording material for a follow up.

BAMBOO album released today! Plus MOSS LIME playing on Monday!


Afternoon everyone!
Today we’re over the moon to see our new release for BAMBOO head out into the world. Their debut album, entitled ‘Prince Pansori Priestess’ is now available in all good record shops and sounds invincible on 180g snow white vinyl. BAMBOO is an immaculate new project from Nick Carlisle (of Peepholes, Don’t Argue) and Rachel Horwood (of Trash Kit, Halo Halo). Their music is vivid and deeply poignant, locking into a magnetic attraction between between Rachel’s flawlessly resonant folk cadence and Nick’s pristine synth pop production.


Prince Pansori Priestess’ is the first album to see the light from this pairing of talents, its title referencing a Korean genre of musical storytelling alongside notions of majesty and faith that are all streams that weave their way through the record. At first pitched-banjo paces out a chiming circle allowing Rachel’s entrancing vocal to follow the line, then Nick’s pristine beats and tonal clusters of synth blossom into almost sub-aqua realms of lush swirling melody. It feels very pure, prismatic and even mystical at moments without losing any of its human touch.

You can listen to ‘Hexagonal’ which premiered on Noisey this week, or check out ‘Khene Song’ that the ever-brilliant 20 Jazz Funk Greats wrote about this morning, enjoy!


Today we’re also announcing a new show for PEGA MONSTRO in February next year, that’ll be our first date in 2016! After their seriously impressive show with Deerhoof this year, we can’t wait to see them again.

Whilst we’re talking shows, our next one falls on Monday at the Old Blue Last and promises to be a pitch perfect exercise in minimal palette post punk from MOSS LIME, AS ONDAS and WHALO all playing for just £5, “bargainous” I hear you cry! Should be a terrific night, read on for the whole story…

SLIM TWIG show tomorrow and MOSS LIME in London next week!


Morning everyone!
We have two shows coming up in the next week that we’d like to shout about. Tomorrow we’re hosting a concert at the Dalston Victoria with valiant melody-warper SLIM TWIG of DFA Records. Joining The Twig on stage we have TARZANA (featuring Jan of Tomutonttu and Spencer from Monopoly Child Star Searchers etc) stopping off in London during their debut ‘Out Of Your Tentacles Tour’, emitting inky clouds of heady wooze, alongside the not-comedy of MAGIC STEVEN from Melbourne too. Sounds terrific to me, tickets £6, available on the door from 7.30pm! Then on Monday evening, next week, we’re pitching up at the Old Blue Last with MOSS LIME, AS ONDAS and WHALO for a night of minimal-palette post punk and hazy meditation. Lots more info to follow on both of those events, alongside our new listing for SAUNA YOUTH’s headline show at The Forge next February. Thank you as always for your time…


\\\\\     TOMORROW     /////



SLIM TWIG
TARZANA (Spencer Clark, Jan Anderzen, Floris Vanhoof)
MAGIC STEVEN
TROON LEINAD (DJ set)
Wednesday 2 December
The Victoria, 451 Queensbridge Rd, Dalston, E8 3AS

SLIM TWIG is a twenty-six-year old, self-proclaimed ‘wah wah master’! His record reissued last year was completed in 2011. So one might reasonably ask, what has Twig done since? After producing two albums for U.S. Girls (U.S. Girls on Kraak in 2011, Gem in 2012), and scoring two films, Twig found himself in 2013 at a creative impasse re: his own songwriting. He had been through full band incarnations live and on record. They featured a cast of Toronto heavies. He briefly performed Slim Twig sets as a duo, featuring multimedia artist and musician, Meg Remy (U.S. Girls). They performed sets that combined versions of Twig’s released songs with freely structured improvisations, samples, and brightly melodic, synth textures. Something in this combination of the pop-minded and the cerebrally-produced has rubbed off on the recordings found on Twig’s latest for DFA.

‘Thank You For Stickin’ With Twig’ is to date the most sonically immersive album in Twig’s discography. Where some records have focused explicitly on sample-based songwriting, while others have been completely live-recorded, the new album arrives at a perfectly produced fusion of fidelities. It hovers, glamorously caught between a cloud of obscurant, half-speed tape hiss, and the most stoned Jeff Lynne production you’ve ever heard. Twig flirts here with a variety of vibes, most often opting for a three-dimensional approach whereby a warped tape aura is overlaid with colourful, laser-cut keyboard and guitar melodies. All the while, we find Twig irreverently raiding classic rock of its symbolism, sexuality, and social ambition for ulterior subversions. In this respect, TYFSWT's closest cousin may be Royal Trux's ‘Accelerator’. Many of the songs play referential sonic games like this, discursively incorporating familiar melodies, production styles or ideas (a fuzzy ballad on wage inequality is cheekily titled ‘Textiles On Mainstreet’), only to pair them with incongruous textures or themes. 'Live In, Live On Your Era', a song encouraging an embrace of one’s own cultural circumstance, is consciously styled as the most ‘retro’ sounding cut on the album (Jimmy Page leads and all), seemingly upending the lyrical content. On and on, the jokes and meta-sonic rock commentary continue like so many Zappa-esque indulgences. Sonically and politically, his aim is to be a rock n’ roll subversive in an era where that claim should rightfully be made by luddite cave-people. Context is everything, and Twig’s gift may be in zeroing in on that.
http://slimtwig.blogspot.co.uk/

TARZANA is the culmination of a long five year collaboration between musicians Jan Anderzén (Fonal, Kemialliset Ystävät, Tomutonttu) and Spencer Clark (The Skaters, Pacificity Soundvisions, Monopoly Child Star Searchers). A space ethnic alien hyperdimensional ooze is here, brought into a live setting with the addition of belgian synthesist composer Floris Vanhoof (Kraak, Ultra eczema), who, in Tarzana, will be playing free sampladelic drum pads. Below you can hear two tracks from their new album ‘Alien Wildlife Estate’, which percolate with the kind of heady, humid exotica that few do better. According to the press release, the music is “engaged as a Fruitopian vision of a rescattering of all elements within an International Airport to be presented as Audio exhibit!” We couldn’t tell you what that means, but it sounds amazing. Listen below and look for the release through Underwater Peoples and Pacific City Sound Vision.

MAGIC STEVEN is a Melbourne, Australia-based performer whose work has been alternately described as autobiographical storytelling, deadpan not-comedy, guided meditation and long-form beat poetry. He has performed as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Fringe Festival in Melbourne, and more recently at Liquid Architecture Festival and at MONA's Dark Mofo Festival in Tasmania.

Upset The Rhythm at the Independent Label Market this Saturday!


We're back at the Independent Label Market in Spitalfields this Saturday with lots of new releases from Bamboo, The Wharves and Normil Hawaiians, alongside 90% of our back catalogue, including warehouse find rarities from Xiu Xiu, Parenthetical Girls, Trash Kit, John Maus, Yikes and Future Islands, see you there!!!

Friday, 20 November 2015

New releases out today for The Wharves and Normil Hawaiians!

Afternoon everyone!
Today our new records by THE WHARVES and NORMIL HAWAIIANS are hitting the shelves of shops near you. ‘Return Of The Ranters’ by Normil Hawaiians was originally recorded in 1985, and it’s taken thirty years to see a proper release for this lost magnum opus. Their music is a hypnotic swirl of improvised avant-punk drifts and hymned mantras and it’s with a heart full of pride that we can say we’ve helped see this record finally released. Available on black and white 180g vinyl and gatefold digipak CD (plus photo booklet), we’re very excited for this one to make its way out there to you. 

https://soundcloud.com/upset-the-rhythm/normil-hawaiians-sianne-dont-work-in-a-factory?in=upset-the-rhythm/sets/upset-the-rhythm

And it’s keeping good company as The Wharves 7” also released today sounds equally outstanding. Following on from last year’s brilliant ‘At Bay’ album on Gringo Records, this brand new single gives us a glimpse of what their next album ‘Electa’ will sound like next year. Side A boasts the plaintive yet powerful track ‘NAZ’, which soars for the sky with each vocal climb and guitar trail. Whilst, ‘My Will’ on the flipside takes us back to a wintry past life, sounding practically medieval in its quietude, before leaping up like a newly lit bonfire when a rebel choir of friends and family join the fray. Limited to 500 copies in hand-embossed sleeves, these won’t hang around for long.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAo__BiYRVc

Both records are available now through our webshop from today as well!
