LAWM PRESENTS A STUNNING NIGHT OF EPIC FRENZIED SOUNDS TINGED WITH HEALTHY AMOUNTS OF POST-ROCK, SHOEGAZE, & A DASH OF PSYCHEDELIA.
HER NAME IS CALLA (LEICESTER)
Rarely has a piece of music actually sounded so idyllic for a setting far beyond your wildest imagination. They found your clothes by a lake," utters Tom Morris some seven minutes into the already haunting overture of guitar and percussion, struggling to retell the harrowing story that envelopes 'Condor And River' from beginning to end.Musically you could say this is somewhere between the vast historical landscapes of iLiKETRAiNS (who for tonight they take a break from supporting) and the organic simplicity of Shady Bard, yet all the time there is an overtly sinister edge that suggests something life-changing (or should that be ending?) is about to take control at any second. Almost like the incidental music to a short narrative about one man's struggle and ultimate failure for survival, in fact. Whatever the inspiration for this, it sure as hell makes listening to straightforward three-minute trad-pop songs impossible afterwards, and simply begs the question: why can't all artists be as ambitiously prophetic as this?'
INSECT GUIDE (LEEDS)
INSECT GUIDE offer epic soundscapes sounding reminiscent of what the Blade Runner soundtrack may have sounded like if had it been produced by Kevin Shields... sure to attract a cult following across the country in the next few months. From Leeds, Insect Guide throw forth a classic shoegaze sound in the ilk of Galaxie 500 or Curve.
3D TANX (LANCASTER)
THREE DIMENSIONAL TANX - One of Lancaster's best local bands and certainly the local leaders of psychedelic shoe gazery. They've been featured in Wire magazine and even played a mammoth gig at the Tate Modern in London. Look out for the sitar and guest vocals from Holly of The Lovely Eggs, superb stuff.
