06/11: Pond/Jade Imagine
An Australian affair in East London as Perth outfit Pond bring their unique brand of psychedelia to the ever exceptional EartH. Expect licks from eighth album Tasmania, a pop-heavy, easy listening affair.
Support from the amazing Jade Imagine, riding high after the release of debut LP Basic Love.
Where? EartH (Hackney)
06/11: Heavy Lungs
Formed in Bristol and subject of Idles’ ‘Danny Nedelko,’ it is hard not to compare Heavy Lungs to their contemporaries. In spite of this, they are deemed an intriguing prospect by fans and industry alike. A spitting hit at the failures of modern life and its inherent fears.
Where? Camden Assembly (Camden)
The Hull outfit boast all the credentials, lyrically brilliant and relevant ‘in your face’ punk. They return to London in celebration of critically acclaimed A Picture Of Good Health. Lyrically, they are more focused than ever. The album is honest, brave and entirely personal. Their live sound is exemplary.
Where? Moth Club (Hackney)
Warmduscher are glorious, their latest LP Tainted Lunch is an example of special musical conceptualisation. Glossy punk for the outsiders, it continues on the sound of second release Whale City. ‘Midnight Dipper’ is no doubt a highlight, an anthem best suited to the live setting. They will take an already sold out Village Underground by storm!
Where? Village Underground (Shoreditch)
07/11: The Gallerys
Given its geographical proximity, Kent artists often flourish in the capital. The Gallerys are fast becoming an exemplar of such statement, their sound heavily influenced by the likes of The Who, Oasis and The Jam. In spite of this, they are lyrically relevant and an exciting new outfit.
Support from The Taboos and Daniel Keane + The Anime.
Where? Werkhaus (Brick Lane)
09/11: The Rotanas/Al Moses
The Rotanos are a Cardiff band re-working the paradigms of 90s Brtipop. Their sound is a discovery of sophisticated yet gritty lyricism. Combine this with the luscious guitar licks of Al Moses and you’ve a night of forward thinking, prosperous guitar music down at Nambucca, the guitar music capital of North London.
Where? Nambucca (Holloway Road)
