Think About Life
Latenight party set
Freelance Whales have been supporting our old friends Fanfarlo around the US and they're coming over here to play for us. They've got a single coming out in February too:
"Freelance Whales found one another in late 2008, in Queens, amidst a strange amalgam of unfamiliar instruments, and precariously arranged pop songs."
"It's awash with gentle, naive bliss, and if you're the type that likes to observe hooks blossoming with the pace of an actual flower opening, then you might have just found a new favourite band." - NME
We're entering into that dangerous territory where the word 'eclectic' might be used for or against us here. Gyratory System are pretty special though. They were even asked to Support Soulwax at their recent Brixton Academy shows!
"Gyratory System is a live/electronica project started by producer Andrew Blick. It takes conventional musical sounds, shatters them into small pieces, processes and reassembles them, to create the sound of a distorted marching band stopping off to pick up a rhythm section at Lagos en route to a rave in Dusseldorf."
“Like a score written by Kraftwerk and Looney Tunes…slightly maddening and totally compelling…this lurchy, lovely…thing’– NME, 8/10 album review
“an amazing album...mind bogglingly brilliant bonkers electronica” – Huw Stephens, 1FM
“not only is this a superb album but you won't hear another one like it all year” – John Doran, BBC Music
“Ridiculously awesome…This is the music of the Mahavishnu Orchestra captured by a SETI cluster, processed through a myriad of deluded wobbly synthesisers and spat in your grimacing face” – 20 Jazz Funk Greats
Opening are NewIslands from (slightly) up north:
Latenight, for dancing purposes we've got Think About Life all the way from Montreal!
