ISLETMONDAY 7TH OCT’ @ 5:30PM
Release day instore for their second full length release, Released By The Movement.
On this record they “go free”. They sing of their love and of their anger, and the joy and pain of their “obsessive need to freak” (Carlos). They sing without words at all, as the record plunges into the more nocturnal sounding depths of Tripping Through The Blue Room (Part II). Woven together by John Thomas’s guitar and Alex Williams’s bass, this track is seized by the almost gothic dread that snakes through the record. These songs were recorded with the band’s good friend Stephen Black – also known as the artist Sweet Baboo. With Black on the controls, the album was recorded and mixed in practice spaces and bedrooms in Cardiff with no engineers or outside input, giving the group the freedom to work without inhibition, recording stream-of-consciousness sonic journeys alongside unruly maximalist adventures. Islet reinvent themselves with every song, playing each others instruments, drumming over drums and splashing sonic colours over each others parts.
HATFUL OF RAIN
SATURDAY 12TH OCT’ // 5PM
Popping in on their way to play Cardiff Boomswinger Bluegrass Club, Hatful of Rain are a Bluegrass/Old time influenced British folk/roots band based in East Sussex. Playing original material, they strive to combine powerful song-writing with musical virtuosity whilst retaining a strong traditional feel. The Hatfuls make full use of the “single microphone” approach to performing which creates an engaging visual spectacle whilst underlining the warmth and communal style of the music played.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W53GCjJCMzE
