If you're bored of revising then come to Royal Park Cellars tonight. We're putting on a night of really nice music. Doors are at 7.30 & it's £5 in. Details below:
Uzi & Ari, hailing from San Francisco, California, is Ben Shepard and friends. They play intricate and beautiful electronic experimental folk, think Thom Yorke's The Eraser entangled with Nick Drake. Support comes from a clutch of local lovelies - The Declining Winter, the sparse electronic soundscapes of Cigars of the Pharoah and The Amber Sleep.
"There is something hiding under the bed in Uzi & Ari’s new record,”Headworms.” Behind each syncopated rhythm and skittering string is the sense that something has been uprooted, that knotty boards have been plied apart and secrets exposed to the light. The album is a pregnant pause in a conversation with the gods, and never has introspection been such cause for dance. Uzi & Ari have always had their hands poised over the primal tom tom frenetic with energy, and in “Headworms” they’re beating it wildly. From the first anxious strums of the autoharp in Missoula to the final symphonic fade-out of Paper Cuts, the band has the listener monastically supplicating on our knees, wearing headphones and a heavy cassock, wringing his hands and tapping his feet."
