Putting on the kind of bill we have this week is the reason I get out of bed in the morning. Nothing short of stunning;
RAVEN BEATS CROW
“Gob-smackingly inventive alternative pop” – The Music Tourist Board
“The garage sensibility of a Seeds or Electric Prunes given a contemporary nigh on Hot Chip electro sparseness, and all tied up with some post punk sniffy nosed experimentation. Corvine crackers” – Bugbear
That’s all well and good but I don’t think it prepares you for quite how special they are so have a look at this YouTube clip of them doing, er, an electro rock cover of Cliff Richard (no seriously, watch it;)
Then listen to their original tracks here;
Reason (2) why this Friday is completely unmissable comes from the muchos tidy
6 Music’s Tom Robinson faves Neon Highwire harness synth, steel and string into something rather marvellous indeed. If Metronomy had stayed a three piece and not gone all shite then perhaps the output would not be so far away from NHW. Having pretty muched owned the Brick Lane circuit in 2009 it’s no surpirse 93 Feet East named them as one of their 93 picks summing them up as “Filed somewhere between a friendlier Death From Above 1979 and a nastier Hot Chip”. A sheer joy on stage make sure you’re down Friday to bear witness to this seminal vision of music’s next.
Plus the NO FICTION residents with cuts from the likes of MAGAZINE, ERRORS, ANIMAL COLLECTIVE, DFA1979, THE XX, WILD BEASTS, THE DEAD WEATHER (et al) on the decks.
See you down for dancing.
