Oro Swimming Hour - Live At Rise Bristol

We\'re extremely excited to announce Oro Swimming Hour will be performing a special set for us upstairs amongst the record racks to celebrate the launch of their new album on Art Is Hard Records, Oro Swimming hour are a magical two piece featuring Bristol\'s own Oliver Wilde and children\'s book illustrator Nicholas Stevenson (also of Lucky Shivers). The 16 track album mastered by Orchid Tapes Warren Hildebrand is full to the brim with freak-folk anthems, lo-fi bedroom pop and the sound of Elliot Smith summoned to a torch-lit seance. Penrose Winoa was recorded in the space of five short days in the living room of Oliver\'s shared house using analogue equipment. If you listen closely enough, amongst the hiss and crackle of the tape fuzz you\'ll pick up the comings and goings of various housemates as well as Sparklehorse the cat. With no track lasting longer than 3 minutes the album passes by in a breeze whilst inducing the feeling of a pleasantly sticky summer day. The album is due for release on 28th July on ltd edition splatter effect 12" and is available to preorder here - http://www.rise-music.co.uk/browse/search/oro+swimming+hour/item/280937/Oro-Swimming-Hour-Penrose-Winoa.html

MV & BH Pres: Chorusgirl / Jetstream Pony / Capt.Lovelace (DJ)

Melting Vinyl & Bleeding Heart Recordings presents Chorusgirl + Jetstream Pony + Capt.Lovelace (DJ) Rialto Theatre, 11 Dyke Road, BN1 3FE 20 July 2017 Doors 8pm 7.50 + booking fee / 9.50 Standing Over 18s only Ticketing outlets: Ticketweb - http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/event/281485 Seetickets - http://www.seetickets.com/event/chorusgirl-jetstream-pony/the-rialto/1111500/ Songkick - https://www.songkick.com/store/events/30323049 Resident Brighton The brainchild of German songwriter, singer and guitarist Silvi Wersing, Chorusgirl blend the shimmering dreaminess of 4AD bands like Lush, the noir pop of The Cure and the bittersweet electricity of The Breeders, creating songs that sparkle with melody and pop nous but are stealthily subverted by something darker. We welcome them back to Brighton! After several years playing in bands that either split up or fizzled out, fed up with being someone elses bassist and feeling like the eternal chorus girl to other peoples dreams, Silvi Wersing decided to strike out on her own. Naming her own band with a heavy dose of irony, she recruited Udo Westhoff (bass), Michael Boyle (drums) and Diogo Oliveira (lead guitar) to flesh out the demos she had made on her laptop, polishing the recordings to a hi-fi sheen in Bear Cave Studios in Cologne. Dig beneath the surface of the perfect pop songs on Chorusgirl and youll find heavy lyrics about saying goodbye, giving up, grief, alienation and loneliness. Its all deliberately coded though, shrouded in the metaphysical poetry that Silvi does so well. Chorusgirl breathe new life into guitar pop, reinvigorating the genre with fresh hooks and sharp-edged songs full of heartache, anger and grit. No longer the eternal chorus girl to other peoples dreams, Silvi Wersing is creating the soundtrack to her own and perhaps her nightmares too. Chorusgirl take up the female-fronted fuzzbomb art-pop baton that Lush and The Long Blondes help patent - jangling guitars carrying along a bucketful of big hooks, Silvi Wersing\'s strident, cool-as vocals, joy camouflaging the pain. Sweeping The Nation. A shimmering brand of 4AD-inspired noir pop Drowned in Sound. - Support comes from: Jetstream Pony Brighton/Croydon based Jetstream Pony come from a common love for power-pop, post punk and indie-pop and is the songwriting project of Shaun Charman (The Wedding Present/The Popguns/The Fireworks), featuring Beth Arzy (Trembling Blue Stars/Luxembourg Signal/The Fireworks) on vocals, Matthew Rimell (The Fireworks) on additional guitar, Kerry Boettcher (Turbocat) on bass and Sara Boyle on drums. Jetstream Pony is also a lovely ex-racing greyhound, also known as Jenna. - DJ sets from Capt.Lovelace Born in Arcachon Bay France, Beatrice settled in Norway then returned to France and Bordeaux at 20, and now resides in Brighton. An adventurer, in love with the quaint European rail network that serves as an escape from the geeky computing world she inhabits for a living. Capt. Lovelace refers as much to pornographic actress Linda Lovelace as to the worlds first computer programmer Ada Lovelace. Beattie has shared stages with Tom Brosseau, Girlpool, Mike Watt & The Missing Men and released her debut EP /* Preview Pane */ on Damnably in August 2015. Beattie is currently working on a new EP of French songs which will be out soon. Check out her spotify taster playlist here: https://open.spotify.com/user/capt.lovelace/playlist/2KkTvnpUGM9xKbJHcfYEoV -- TAKE A CHANCE ON MV We love all kinds of music and we love sharing it with you.

Wayward Sons At The Louisiana

WAYWARD SONS TOBY JEPSONS NEW BAND BRISTOL LOUISIANA Wed 26th July 2017 Tickets 10adv 8pm 11pm Ticket Line 0117 9299008 Artists Website www.facebook.com/waywardsonsbanduk Reset the counters! Toby Jepson is back with WAYWARD SONS his brand new band and Ghosts Of Yet To Come, his first new album in over 20 years. After the incredible success of Little Angels, a number one album, millions of records sold, massive sell out shows and numerous hit singles, Toby has been busy these past years in movie work, performing with Fastway, Gun and Dios Disciples and producing albums for numerous bands (Saxon, Fastway, Virginmarys). His heart however, is always in writing and performing and so the concept of WAYWARD SONS was born a new band, built for playing live, a new direction with Tobys songs centre stage and a new album, signed to Frontiers Music SRL, with all the hallmarks of a great debut. Wayward Sons, handpicked by Toby are Nic Wastell (bass, Chrome Molly) Phil Martini (drums, Spear Of Destiny, ex Quireboys, Joe Elliots Down and Outs) Sam Wood (guitar, a real new gunslinger from Treason Kings) and Dave Kemp (keys, ex Little Angels touring band and long time sideman to Toby). GOYTC was written in a live band situation, a first for Toby I decided to get out of my comfort zone, new players, no been there done that and it totally worked says Toby. 26 songs were written in a series of rehearsals at Peter Gabriels Real World Studios and 14 were then taken into Vale Studios in Worcestershire and recorded in a live band situation with Toby co producing with Chris Dadda. Passionate, honest music made by passionate honest musicians who have come together to create rock music that reflects their heroes from the 70s and 80s modernity through homage..Wayward Sons
