Please note, this show has been cancelled. Fofoulah will play at Band on the Wall as part of our 'Fat Free' showcase instead - free entry.

A promising debut from an exciting and talented group of musicians." **** Songlines (Top of the World album) This is a standing show. 18+.

Israel Nash At The Deaf Institute

Texas genre-bending rock n roller Israel Nash come to Manchester Thursday 24th January 2018 following the release of his latest long play, Lifted. Thought to be a modern day hippie-spiritual, a tonic for those needing to put aside the mess of the daily grind. With luscious beds of strings, horns and well adorned towering walls of sound, Lifted finds Nash continuing his tradition of creating a sonic experience of feeling that is at once both vast and intimate - soaring and untamed at times, placid and sincerely personal at others. Support comes from Joana Serrat

Old Sea Brigade Live At The Castle Hotel, Manchester

DHP Family Proudly Present... Old Sea Brigade Plus special guests Bishop Blue and Kate Anita Live at The Castle Hotel 24/01/19 18+ Tickets are on sale now It really feels like colouring outside of the lines. For as much as the music of Old Sea Brigade remains rooted in Americana, indie, country, rock, and ambient soundscapes, it blurs and breaks barriers, tossing and turning between analogue cinematic flourishes and provocative lyricism based on hard-won wisdom. Amidst this mlange of textures, Atlanta-born and Nashville-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Ben Cramer allows the emotion to resound loudest on his full-length debut, Ode To A Friend [Nettwerk]. I put myself into my own bubble, he explains. The music doesnt conform to one style. I'm in Nashville, but this isnt straight ahead Americana or country. At the same time, it's not just indie rock either. I chose to do something that felt like me.Its the best representation of my songwriting and what I grew up loving about music.I hope you can pull your own meaning from it. He's been encouraging audiences to do just that since first emerging in 2015. After the breakup of his last band, he wound up back in Atlanta at his parents house with no idea what to do.So, he figured it out. The artist combed through his personal sonic archives, found inspiration, and started feverishly writing. Soon after, he teamed up with producer Jeremy Griffith to record Old Sea Brigades self-titled debut EP. The single Love Brought Weight caught fire, generating over 16 million Spotify streams. In the meantime, he inked a deal with NETTWERK after founder Terry McBride personally reached out on Facebook. Between touring alongside Joseph, Luke Sital Singh, Lewis Watson, Julien Baker, John Paul White, and more, he released 2017s Cover My OwnEP. The lead single Tidal Wave quickly crossed the two-million-mark on Spotify as acclaim came from Clash, Indie Obsessive, Immersive Atlanta, and many others. During 2017, he retreated to Griffiths Dest in, FL studio in order to record what would become Ode To A Friend. In the studio, the sonic palette expanded to incorporate analogue synths and a squeaky, old, and out-of-tune piano that youd never find in a music storebut gave the sound character.This go-around, I brought in a lot of production ideas, since I'd been working with many artists in Nashville, he explains. I worked closely with Jeremy to bring the production to life. We went outside of the box and tried different things. That messed-up piano became a big theme of the record. On the lead single Hope, creaky ambience underscores the finger-picked acoustic guitar as he croons ponderous lines a la the opening admission, I want to feel hope when I die, so I know what I left behind.He recalls, I wrote that in Laurel Canyon at a friends house. That was first experience writing in L.A. like that. It wrote itself pretty quickly. It takes a while for me to figure out what a song is about. It was being really honest though. Thats how Id describe it. Feel Yousways between a steady beat offset by his gravelly delivery and sparse, off-time piano chords. It takes on multiple meanings, he reveals. It could be like a bad relationship, or it could be something else, depending on your experience. Seen A Ghost hypnotizes with its airy guitars and ethereal production as Cigarette lights up embers of delicate picking and resounding vocals. Barely over two minutes, the title track and closer Ode To A Friend leaves a lasting impression thats both heartfelt and heartbreaking with a vocal mid-section that practically levitates on the energy of raw feeling. When I started Old Sea Brigade, the time that followed was the best two years of my life, he goes on. I could tour and work on music full-time. In the middle of all that happening, one of my best friends actually committed suicide. Its a heavy record in that respect. I came up with the lyrics right after he passed. I didnt want a normal structure. Its almost like an interlude to tie up the album dedicated to him. He was always such a big proponent and fan of my songs. He encouraged me to move towards a solo career. The title made sense. I finally felt vulnerable enough to put out music that was close to me.Thats why its so easy to get close to Old Sea Brigade. Cramer opens the floodgates emotionally and forges an unbreakable connection by simply being himself.Id love for someone who is listening to feel like this is different and new, but also realize the vulnerability of the music, he leaves off. Thats definitely something Ive struggled with in the past. This record is my leap of faith to express music in the truest way I can. I want to keep doing that.

NOV3L At Yes - Thursday 24th January

The Beauty Witch and Grey Lantern presents NOV3L +more tba Novel is an engine of entertainment and social criticism weaponizing rhythm and melody against the unsound powers that be. Rigid new-wave, angular funk, polyrhythmic disco and intellectual punk together approximate a radical new sound that forms the principal means of ideological circulation. Drawing influence from such mindful predecessors as Devo and Public Enemy, Novel offers an empowering, politically-charged stance in fierce opposition to the modern cultural landscape, reflecting the corrupted nature of humanity back upon itself. A sense of foreboding and comic paranoia pervades the debut EP: corporate power looms large, technological isolation seems omnipresent, and bureaucracy mines the psyche of detached participants. This constructed reality presents a hard-earned escape through critical thinking and direct action, acting as a call to mindfulness and moral resistance. Translated through the power of electric music. Tickets £7adv

J Chambers- New Levels New Devils Launch Show

Anamelia Anamelia a Polish girl raised in England. Her influences are deep: Musically she absorbs everything from Erykah Badu to NAO, visually she matches classic 90s British streetwear with a more 2018 silhouette and her depth doesnt stop there. Spending much of her youth attending folk concerts across the Polish countryside, her ability to take in a breadth of cultural experiences has clearly transcended to her artistic output, shown through her multi-lingual musical approach and strong advocacy for other young females to recognise their identity and spirituality. www.anameliamusic.com Dane and E-thrilla Following the vast success of their collaborative project The Clouds Above Forever the two Manchester underground heavyweights are bringing their eclectic blend of heavyweight beats and reflective yet pensive and intricate lyrics to the Deaf Institute. https://www.facebook.com/Ethrilla/ https://www.facebook.com/DaneUK Woody Green + ZZ Slepton (Roots Raddix) Roots Raddix are bringing a whole new vibe to the 0161 scene. Founded 2014, the trio Layfullstop, Woddy Green and Zz, The Slept On draw on jazz, RnB and soul to imbue their hip-hop with unique flavour. https://www.facebook.com/rootsraddixmusic/ Miasma Miasma are a Manchester based 7 piece groove-oriented Funk & soul outfit. Slick licks and popping horns weaved between a strong bass driven rhythm section and a vibrant arrangement of female-led vocals, generating a psychedelic funk. Once in a blue moon planetary alignments are said to lead to local miasmas: concentrations of funky air and strange vapors. These miasmas are then blown on the wind and enter the body through pores in the skin, a contagious power ... that has an independent life of its own. Once inside the body they disrupt the balance, improving your interplanetary funksmanship. So kick back and breathe deep, while we lay it on your eardrums. https://www.miasmamcr.com/ https://miasmamcr.bandcamp.com/ J.Chambers Following the success of his sophomore project Moment of Silence ii: The Road to Perdition Featuring songs such as Round Here Featuring the incredible Layfullstop, For This & Manifesto. J now returns with his new triumphant project New Levels New Devils. NLND paints the picture of surviving and trying to build a better future in a Britain that is broken. The pensive and intricate lyricist is set to return to Deaf Institute to launch his project This isnt one that you want to miss. New Levels New Devils is an interesting listen that draws you in musically and lyrically. The messages will resonate with many people, if the genre does not.
