Jesca Hoop At Exchange, Bristol

**Jesca Hoop** Hoop learned to sing at an early age, harmonising with her musical Mormon family in northern California. She began writing highly idiosyncratic songs at the age of 14 to keep her company on her long walks to school. At 16, Hoop broke away from her strict upbringing and began what she calls her \'life as a racoon\', off the grid & close to nature. Rambling through the high mountain deserts of the Southwest and along the coastlines of the Northwest, she worked as a wilderness survival guide and chalked up skills in farming, surveying, and carpentry. Her songwriting continued throughout, shared on porches, in deep river canyons and around campfires. Plus support TBA Tickets: www.exchangebristol.com/whats-on/events/30-mar-17-jesca-hoop-exchange

New Carnival / Gurr - The Louisiana - 30.03.17

NEW CARNIVAL www.facebook.com/newcarnival New Carnival are made up of Max, Bertie and Billy. Hailing from the Bristol area, they shared their first track back in 2012, which saw them shooting straight to number 13 on Hype Machine and their second track amassed over 200k views incredibly impressive for a trio with no label and no team behind them. New track Where Do You Wanna Go?, however, sees the band launching for real, and its in a big way. Packed with infectious melodies and funky rhythm, the track is a beeline straight to the dance floor, complete with a slick, sweet strut.

Jack Cheshire + Support At The Brunswick

The Brunswick are pleased to welcome London-based psych-pop songwriter JACK CHESHIRE to Hove as part of the tour for his new \'Black Light Theatre\' album. Cheshire cites a diverse set of influences for the albums textures and arrangements, including Can, Grizzly Bear and Television. Yet equally important to him was David Foster Wallaces dystopian novel Infinite Jest, whose themes of addiction, mental health, drugs and gratification resonated greatly with a songwriter unafraid to experiment: I try and turn off any filters in my mind and let things out. My songs are about the human condition as it relates to the static in my head. "with his breathy Ian McCulloch-style croona burnished psychedelia creeps into the mix and takes this music to the skies." - Garry Mulholland, Uncut " an inspired combination, Cheshires precisely enunciated Nick Drake-like vocals and non-rhyming, allusive lyrics in tense and absorbing combat with the bands expansive sound picturesAn artist crying out for a bigger audience." - Dan Cairns, The Sunday Times Absolutely fantastic - Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music ". a gem of psychedelic English folk the listener is thrown into an uncertain, disorientating yet mesmerising world created by Cheshires lyrics and incredibly gifted band" - Renny Jackson, ThankFolkForThat.com 9/10 "Visitations" promo video - https://goo.gl/6bfGHM http://www.jackcheshire.com _____________ Support TBA _____________ Doors 8pm - 11pm Contact: venue@brunswickpub.co.uk 18+ _____________

Slowdive - The Fleece - 30.03.17

SLOWDIVE www.slowdiveofficial.com Long-term school-friends Neil Halstead & Rachel Goswell formed Slowdive in October 1989, the name, Slowdive, coming from a dream Neil Halstead once had. According to an interview in Alternative Press, he dreamt of two words, Slowdive and Slowburn. At first they were a highly derivative My Bloody Valentine/Sonic Youth clone, but even their first demo reveals a better understanding of controlled noise than most of their contemporaries. In their defence the \'demo\' was really just them recording for fun, and it wasn\'t until early in 1990 that the band became Slowdive proper with their own ideas. The major change was the addition of third guitarist, Christian Savill, previously of local act Eternal. "We advertised for a female guitarist, but only Christian replied. He writes a sweet letter though, he said he\'d wear a dress if neccesary". The songs on the second demo show a leap forward, while previously they headed towards a climax of noise, \'Avalyn\' was a gentle steady flow of nearly white noise. It\'s this demo, passed on by another Reading act, Swervedriver, that brought Slowdive onto Creation records and became the first single, as attempts to recreate the atmosphere in a more expensive studio failed. Problamaticaly between recording the demo and signing to Creation their drummer left for University, and they were forced to draft in a replacement. He didn\'t share the same aims and tastes as the group, and they didn\'t really get on with him, making time on the road a little uncomfortable. More importantly "He had a shaggy perm, he looked like Jon Bon Jovi" so he was replaced by the bowl-cutted Simon Scott, of the sadly deceased Charlottes. Simon later left Slowdive on good terms in February-March 1994 to continue his career in jazzy circles and was replaced by "the immensely handsome and talented" Ian MacCutcheon before they went on their 1994 north american tour, which they paid for themselves since SBK Records, their U.S. distributor, who had promised them an extensive tour, went out of business. My Bloody Valentine have been directly relevant to their use of guitar sound. The Cocteau Twins and The Byrds were big influences too. They worry about the build them up/knock them down syndrome, complaining that the British press expect revelations with the first record, while bands like the Cocteau\'s & MBV have taken years to achieve the respect they have. The problem has probably been caused by the string of excellent debuts by Pale Saints, Ride, Bleach and Slowdive themselves creating an expectation that the best music will come from previously unknown bands. Slowdive have been perhaps particularly lucky with Melody Maker giving them single of the week for all their releases during 1991, and a reviewer at NME giving them the same accolade as he felt the review printed the previous week was unfair. Slowdive was the first band featured by Creation on IRC on february 2nd 1995. In one of Slowdive\'s newsletters, they wrote about a planned cover of Galaxie 500\'s "Fourth of July" for a tribute album, that was going to be released by Elefant Records in Spain. To my knowledge, the album was unfortunately never released, and probably never will be, at least not including Slowdive, beacuse the band was dropped by Creation shortly after the release of Pygmalion, April 1995. This affected the release of Pygmalion in the U.S. and the band started to look for a new label. Rumors said that Rachel and Neil sent a demo to 4AD, which got a positive reaction from the label. And that happened to be the truth. Rachel, Ian and Neil formed the band Mojave 3 and were signed to 4AD in the summer of 1995 (for that story, please check the Mojave 3 Discography). Rachel Goswell said: "After that ("Pygmalion"), Slowdive didn\'t so much split as take a shift in direction, one that a couple of the other members weren\'t comfortable with. It didn\'t seem right to carry on with the same name, we needed to get a fresh start and all the pieces fell into place for us to get one."

BN: Penelope Isles, Mount Sinai & The Sun Band And Murmur

Fresh from wowing a packed Green Door Store at Day V, Brighton Noise presents PENELOPE ISLES (Penelope Isles) Hailing from the Isle of Man, Penelope Isles is the sounds of Jack and Lily Wolter, with the help of friends Becky Redford and Jack Sowton. Currently based between Brighton and Cornwall, the band perform melodic fuzz pop with dynamics that will transfix and satisfy. Hypnotic, chiming bedroom pop music. For the lovers of Radiohead, The Magic Numbers and Deerhunter. "Their set is the wide-eyed optimism of youth with a knack for great pop hooks which they smear with psych fuzz, similar to the likes of Cheatahs, or Moon King. Their tracks are like your favourite sweets with shards of broken glass embedded in them, the potential of which is just screaming out for attention." - Line Of Best Fit MOUNT SINAI & THE SUN BAND (Mount Sinai & The Sun Band) Surf tinged, low voiced rock n roll. Brand new project from Mark S. Aaron, formally known as Rooster Cole and frontman and songwriter of Black Black Hills. Consisting of: Jim Morrison (Speak Galactic / Great Pagans), Max Numajiri (Spacenoid / Man Ray Sky), Alex Painter (Great Pagans / Speak Galactic) & Tom Windsor (Black Black Hills / Coin-op). This hints at Two Gallants and the Black Keys, the more you listen, the further subtleties you appreciate, whilst always drawing back to cower in the imperious vocal. Bloody great. The 405 Beautifully sullen, evocative of The National. Faded Glamour Reminiscent of Nick Cave or some other deep voiced storyteller. BBC Introducing MURMUR (Murmur) Murmur are a grunge four piece born in Staffordshire and currently based in Brighton with a sound of psychedelic dirty guitars and heavy energetic drums. + dj messytrax. 4 adv (We Got Tickets) // 5 OTD

Grandaddy - Colston Hall - 31.03.17

GRANDADDY www.grandaddymusic.com Grandaddy formed in Modesto, CA in 1992, and consists of Jason Lytle, Aaron Burtch, Tim Dryden, Jim Fairchild and Kevin Garcia. The band initially broke through with 1997\'s Under the Western Freeway and the NME-praised single "Summer Here Kids." The band\'s sound, atmospheric electronics meet warped Americana, crystallized on 2000\'s Sophtware Slump, which was met with breathless hype and earned the band "Next Big Thing" status. Tireless rounds of international touring and mountains of fawning press led to 2003\'s Sumday, increasing album sales, more touring, more press ,T.V.show appearances, and a slot on the main stage at the Glastonbury festival. The band produced another EP and an album entitled Just Like the Fambly Cat, before disbanding in 2006. Following a brief live reunion in 2012, Grandaddy is set for a full return this year, including the first new music in ten years and a new album via 30th Century Records / Columbia Records.
