Drowned In Sound @ The Hockley Hustle, Bunkers Hill, Nottingham.
Sunday 25th October.
THE BOXER REBELLION
"Graceful falsettos that scrape the sky while ricocheting guitars slowly emerge from the darkness and take flight" (BBC Music)
"“Bruised indie-rock that builds and builds before spilling over into beauty one minute, and raw aggression the next.” (Rock Sound)
THE DOMINO STATE
"Seminal shoegaze with a panache for writing affects-laden tunes not too dissimilar from The Chameleons or mid-period Bunnymen" (Drowned In Sound)
"Consummate mood-music that glints with striking details" (Pitchfork)
"Like early Verve jamming with the mixing desk of The Beatles...savage, sharp-edged guitars that wash over you like fresh rain" (Penny Black Music)
DANIEL LAND & THE MODERN PAINTERS
"A magnificent, magical and monolithic slice of shoegaze beauty. Sounds like Slowdive reimagined by Phil Spector" (NME)
"As leftfield as their intentions may be, there is also an unashamedly pop side to this band that occasionally rears its head, even if one gets the feeling I Concur would rather smother it in a pillow of atmospherics instead" (Contactmusic)
"The kind of band that makes you hear colours and taste sounds before waking up in a field, wondering what the hell happened to you the night before" (God Is In The TV)
"You-v-Me show a level of accomplishment rare in these parts. Lyrically alluring and instrumentally compelling, they deliver songs that kick and impress in equal measure." (BBC Music)
+ DJ sets from SFL Soundsystem vs Lion Roadshow (roots/dub/noise)
Doors 2pm: First band on 215.
