LATE SHOW - 9pm till 2am
BARR (usa - Upset The Rhythm!)
BARR is the project of LA's wandering pop-dynamo Brendan Fowler, in which he half-sings over half-tunes, creating a set of confessional songs that challenge the listener's preconceptions of truly inventive music. Brendan's second full length 'Summary' is out now on Upset The Rhythm and is his darkest and most complex yet. Holding impassioned and articulate dialogues over deceptively simple, yet emotionally disarming melodies, formed from a sparse arrangement of bass, drums, piano and sometimes xylophone, he produces candid and exploratory songs about love, absence, realisation and personal politics. Returning to the UK for the third time, Brendan has dispensed with his iPod and will instead be backed by a full live band, featuring Ethan Swan and Corey Dieckman on piano and bass, and Kevin Shea (of Storm & Stress and Talibam!) on drums.
