Spend a lovely Saturday afternoon in the marvellous Unitarian Church, with some awesome blissed-out music. It’ll all be over in time to head to the Portland Arms for the Mick Flower and Neil Campbell gig in the evening - http://www.last.fm/event/1868669+Mick+Flower+and+Neil+Campbell
Mountains is Brendon Anderegg and Koen Holtkamp, two sonic explorers whose long history, shared philosophies, and love of sculpting sound, has resulted in some of the most densely layered and blissful music crafted in recent memory.The duo is known for obscuring the boundaries between acoustic instrumentation and electronics. New album, “Air Museum”, comes out next month on Thrill Jockey.
Formerly the drummer of Slowdive (a band all the cool kids are citing as an influence these days), Simon Scott now animates field recordings, tempers them with larghissimo guitar, and colours with unexpected soft textures.
The UK-based arm of ROOM40 Records and sometime Tenniscoats, Lawrence English and Maher Shalal Hash Baz collaborator, John Chantler has spent the last few years perfecting making grittily psychedelic tunes on modular synthesiser. He’s just released his first solo album in seven years, “The Luminous Ground”, on which Chantler almost duets with his electronic setup, treating it as an expressive and occasional unpredictable partner in incremental improvisations.
