Palace Winter come to The Harley 23.10!

Pleased to announce that Palace Winter will be coming to The Harley on the 23rd October!

Join in here | Buy tickets here

In October 2015 Australian singer­songwriter Carl Coleman and Danish producer and pianist Caspar Hesselager released their debut EP Medication via Copenhagen­based label Tambourhinoceros (Rangleklods, Cancer, CTM). Waiting for the World to Turn (June 3rd 2016) is Palace Winter’s debut album.
The attention around Palace Winter has been evolving nicely since the debut EP in October 2015. Especially in the UK where the single “Soft Machine” was listed on BBC Radio 6 Music for 5 weeks and large media such as The Guardian and The Line of Best Fit have been fans from the get go.

When starting out the duo sent their own bits and pieces back and forth to find their own sound. A sound where the organic songwriting and guitar­strumming of Carl merges with Caspar’s skills as a producer and classically­trained pianist turned electro. The duo compliments each other very well; Carl is somewhat traditional in his songwriting and Caspar contributes with a more abstract approach resulting in the atmospheric, cinematic vibe of Palace Winter.

As a live band Palace Winter feeds of the energy of the audience when they bring their self proclaimed atmospheric krautrock to the stage. It can often be a hypnotic experience with the band’s wall of sound from the guitars and synth creating an intense vibe throughout the show.
During the spring Palace Winter have been touring regularly building up to the album release including The Great Escape, Dot to Dot Festival and a headline show at London’s Shacklewell Arms. This summer they’ll be playing key festivals such as Roskilde (DK), Green Man (UK) and Sziget (H)

The Moonlandingz announced for Queens 23.09

Oh yes, the fictional band became real! The Moonlandingz are coming to play at Queens.

Join us here on FacebookTickets on sale Friday 8th July

An outsider ouija psych pop super group, born out of a fictional band & imagined by Sheffield (UK) based Audio Taxidermists and bearded analog synth scientists, The ECCENTRONIC RESEARCH COUNCIL aka Adrian Flanagan and Dean Honer (from ex-wonky electronic chart botherers, The All Seeing I), who brought in LIAS SAOUDI, frontman from the “most dangerous band in Britain” (N.M.E), THE FAT WHITE FAMILY and their guitarist SAUL ADAMCZEWSKI.

One track by the fictional band titled, ‘Sweet Saturn Mine’, got picked up immediately by BBC 6 Music and other BBC stations and became a main stay on British radio throughout the whole of spring 2015 and picked up best track of the year with 6 music dj’s and various online music publications in the end of year polls.

The demand to hear & see the band was so great that the fictional band became a real band in August 2015 and did a handful of sell out shows across the Uk and more recently were invited by Iggy Pop to open for him at his first official live show promoting his album ‘Post Pop Depression’ in Austin, Texas, during this years SXSW.

The band have just finished recording and mixing their debut Album (Due early 2017) in upstate New York with their friend, Sean Lennon. The album promises an eye watering array of special guests and collaborations.

And what can we expect from the forthcoming live tour ?

“A brief look at the world as it actually is. This is the ‘Ultimate Realism tour’. These shows will take the futile embarrassment that is contemporary British life and embrace it relentlessly, passionately, pathetically.!!” states singer/frontman, Lias Saoudi, enigmatically.

It’s Pop music, but not as we know it.

The Low Anthem – Sheffield 19.11.16

Just announced! The Low Anthem are coming to Queens Social Club in November…

Tickets

Ben Knox Miller and Jeff Prystowsky united as The Low Anthem in 2007, best friends constructing something altogether new from old musical traditions. The band’s artistic range and ardent passion for exploration came to the fore with 2008’s breakthrough second album, OH MY GOD, CHARLIE DARWIN (self-released and then reissued a year later to worldwide acclaim by the estimable Nonesuch label). SMART FLESH followed in 2011, earning further international applause for The Low Anthem’s remarkable adventurousness as both artists and producers.

Following a 2011 tour in support of their extraordinary SMART FLESH album, The Low Anthem returned to Providence to begin searching for a unique new studio space. Their quixotic quest ultimately led to The Columbus, a local theatre built in 1926 as a vaudeville house and shuttered since 2009, “OPENING SOON” promised on the marquee. A large vacant room designed for maximum acoustics, The Columbus offered everything The Low Anthem was looking for – an ideal studio space to begin recording their next album as well as a concert hall unlike any other in the Providence area. Dubbing their new studio as the true life “Eyeland,” the duo immediately set about exploring its sonic capabilities, experimenting with every bizarre phenomenon of sound they could find.

EYELAND marks the Low Anthem’s fourth full-length recording and first new music since 2011’s SMART FLESH. An unprecedented collection of multi-dimensional future folk crafted with true vision and emotional depth, EYELAND follows an extraordinary five-year journey for The Low Anthem. What began as a “vague and rather abstract” short story by co-founder/singer/guitarist Ben Knox Miller became real life as Low Anthem immersed themselves in the creation of their own Eyeland Studios, developing Providence’s once obsolete Columbus Theatre into an innovative recording space and live concert venue. EYELAND proves a prism of the album’s inner themes, refracting Miller and co-founding drummer/multi-instrumentalist Jeff Prystowsky’s sonic escapades into a full-blown Möbius strip of music and meaning. Assisted by current Low Anthem musicians Florence Wallis and Bryan Minto as well as such first generation members as Jocie Adams, Mike Irwin, Tyler Osborne, and Andy Davis, their lofty aspirations and creative capriciousness resonate throughout songs like ”Her Little Cosmos,” “The Pepsi Moon” and “Behind The Airport Mirror,” their elegiac arrangements and lyrical frankness marked by shimmering ambience and a hauntingly defiant tension. Psychedelic in the truest sense of that overused word, EYELAND is a perspective-shifting musical experience at once elliptical and intangible yet still precise and powerfully personal.
