Marble Valley (ex Pavement/Silver Jews)
Marble Valley is the multi-national (English/Dutch/American) sextet brainchild of former Pavement-er/Silver Jew, Steve West. They make music that’s been described as "together" and "out there" at once. Music that careens rambunctiously from krautrock to hip hop to psyche rock without a care in the world for sniffy purists or music industry trends. With two UK releases under their belts this year alone including a re-issue of 2006’s ‘Wild Yams’ plus the excellent brand new record ‘Slash & Burn’ they’ve decided it was about time they finally got round to a UK tour.
"Playing in the Valley is like hanging with a barrel of monkeys on crack. If we all hold together, it's a bit punk. If one lets go, it can get a bit punky, flunky and floppy." Steve West
Leeds band Wonderswan are dab hands at turning out perfectly formed nuggets of pure 90’s noise pop nostalgia. They’ve been gathering proper momentum lately with a slew of glowing reviews and high profile supports. If you like things loud, textured and ramshackle a la Dinosaur Jr or Urusei Yatsura then these guys are definitely for you.
"A beautifully shambolic fuzz laden racket...the sound of beautiful chaos" The Guardian
Red Shoe Diaries
Nottingham favourites Red Shoe Diaries make sophisticated indie pop that joins the dots from Jacques Brel to Darren Hayman in epic, Morricone-esque broad strokes. We reckon they’re quite possibly the most exciting glittery-literary indie pop band to come from the city since Tindersticks. Catch them now in an intimate surrounding before they bolt the stable.
Have a great Easter!
