This Many Boyfriends/Tigercats/Haiku Salut/Tiny Birds
Jamm, 261 Brixton Road, London SW9 6LH, FREE admission
This Many Boyfriends
Very welcome return for HDIF favourites This Many Boyfriends, who first played at HDIF Presents as main support to Allo Darlin' in 2009, and now look set to emulate their success. Recent, brilliant single, "Young Lovers Go Pop!", was playlisted by 6 Music and played by everyone from Steve Lamacq to that Zane Lowe, and also happens to be our Single Of The Year. Expect exhuberant, shouty, romantic, joyous, heartbreaking pop.
Tigercats and This Many Boyfriends on the same bill! We're spoiling you (and ourselves, obviously). Third HDIF Presents appearance for these superb east Londoners, who are right alongside This Many Boyfriends when it comes to our tips for the big time. Spiky, clever, ebulliant pop.
Easily our favourite new band of the year, this female trio were once members of The Deirdres, but now make swoonsome instrumental music in the vein of Yann Tierssen, early Mum, and Detektivbyran, featuring accordions, banjos, xylophones and more.
A five piece from London, Tiny Birds play happysad indie folk influenced by Hefner, The Wave Pictures and Gorkys, festooned with (more!) banjos and accordions. Their debut album, "Hymns For The Careless" (told you about that Hefner influence), came out earlier this year.
