Formerly one half of underground cult duo Prince Rama with her sister Nimai, Taraka’s solo venture sees her create infectious and raucous psych-grunge. Last year the New York artist – full name Taraka Larson – released her debut album ‘Welcome to Paradise’: A full-throttle, kaleidoscopic release traversing surf-rock, psychedelia and bratty punk delivered with off-kilter charm and attitude.
Carrying on the high-energy that Prince Rama was renowned for, Taraka’s vivid vision and creativity plus the dynamism of her sound undoubtedly makes for a compelling live show.
Established in San Francisco, CA in 2002, Enablers' subsequent five LPs and four EPs have signalled a transcendent approach to “Spoken Word” music. The 2019 LP, Zones (Broken Clover, Lancashire&Somerset, and Exile on Mainstream) is a further example of Enablers’ push for musical expansion and growth. Zones represents a band that is increasingly more comfortable with experimentation and improvisation, while continuing to embrace all the musical elements that have established their sound for close to twenty years.
This October Tony will debut a new live setup, with a full band ensemble (horns, drums, guitars, keys and more) to reimagine his music and showcase his upcoming release “Our New Bloom”. Expect an immersive audio-visual experience full of experimentation, abstraction and a myriad of emotional themes that endeavour to take the audience on a sonic and visual journey of self-discovery.
Post Macho Noise Pop trio “The Byker Grove Fan Club” Channel their fury via angular guitars, muscular rhythms, and sardonic vocals dripping with bile and malice.
In the heat of summer, and the tatters of “the dream”. Huw Allen (vocals and bass) Connor Dack (guitar) get hammered in a basement, writing cavemen riffs for meatheads. After a few weeks, a few hangovers, and the addition of Louis Lanfear (drums), the trio refine their irreverent blend of hardcore, post-punk, and Noise Rock, and somewhere in the process “The Byker Grove Fan Club” is born.
Fresh from the release of their highly acclaimed, Top 5* debut album, ‘Solace’, Held By Trees are excited to announce live dates this October. Praised by music journalists around the world, the live iteration of David Joseph’s instrumental project will include album contributors Robbie McIntosh on guitar, Laurence Pendrous on piano, and Andreas Panayi on flute and clarinet. Augmenting the line-up is James Grant on bass, Paul Beavis on drums and additional guests sitting in at different shows.
