RELIGIOUS KNIVES -
Religious Knives is Mike Bernstein, Maya Miller (both of Double Leopards) and Nate Nelson (Mouthus). Psych-minimalism with slowly shifting synth melodies, atonal guitar, twisted percussion and haunting vocals. Recent releases on Troubleman Unlimited, No Fun Productions and their own Heavy Tapes.
Only UK appearance.
AIRPORT WAR -
Airport War was started by James Hoff as a forum for his poetic and visual investigations into sound and performance. Airport War made its debut in November 2005 at PERFORMA05 with an installation/performance at the White Box Gallery in New York . This occasion also marked the release of Over and Over the Endless Corner, a 16 record album/carry-away installation.
Nalle are a Glasgow-based three piece featuring Hanna Tuulikki (vocals, kantele, flutes), Aby Vulliamy (viola) and Chris Hladowski (bouzouki, clarinet). The sound is one blissed out, expansive drone, comparable to Tuulikki's Finnish compatriots Lau Nau or Islaja, but with a distinctly Anglo-Scottish twist. Recent album 'By Chance Upon Waking' out on Pickled Egg Records.
THE ONE ENSEMBLE -
The One Ensemble are in fact four - Daniel Padden (guitar and vocals ), Chris Hladowski (bouzouki), Peter Nicholson (cello) and Aby Vulliamy (viola). Daniel is one quarter of Volcano The Bear, while Chris and Aby are members of Nalle and Glaswegian jazz-folk big band Scatter. Fusing Eastern European traditions, classical chamber music, mystical minimalism and free jazz into a heady brew, their music is otherworldly, magical and unmistakably beautiful.
FAMILY BATTLE SNAKE -
Family Battle Snake is Bill Kouligas (Sudden Infant) and Harry Astras, Greek
natives but with the former living in London . Heavy telepathic improvisations and
all too rare duo (full) line-up. For the past 2 years have played almost all around
Europe and released loads of recordings on many European and American labels.
Second Layer Records will have a stall at the show.
