    I never remember hearing who decided to imagine what would happen if they sounded like an original pop group whose members consisted of Steve Reich Scott Walker Peter Gabriel Flo and Eddie and To Rococo Rot That good Fragmented and splintered samples glowing edits colliding rhythms forgotten dreams digital collage disintegrating intervals merging tenses and cut up words The album is full of romance and recollections re enactments and speculations memory and mystery machine generated mood and human thought They make a pop music that suggests at the same time that when it comes to pop music we ve heard it all before and yet quite simply because of various machines random inventions social pressures cultural urges creative surges networking ease and personal shared and electronic memory connected with a continuing sense of anticipation we ain t heard nothing yet Their name fits It juxtaposes one thing with another just like their music and their lyrics which lead to all sorts of sonic literal and conceptual reverberations Clock because of the way their music follows strict inescapable patterns on the outside and inside of time moves clockwise and sometimes anti clockwise tick tocks from second to second leaps from minute to minute with minutes to go always there mysterious persistent biological atomic body face alarm the circular band ever present in between the past and future Analogue and digital Opera because of the grand drama the fearless theatre the epic crushing sparkle the crazy scenery the concrete stylistic niceties the way their songs tell their stories which go all the way from foamy soap to fierce teeming space Clock duration organic precision cutting the day up into small portions Opera elaborate structures no half measures divorced from but dependent on reality featuring emotional fanatics and representing passions and emotions as morally significant Clock Opera Machine and human time and intensity menace and opulence real and unreal fixed in flux Wound up rewinding fast forwarding and compelling people to fall in love with the colour of life I remember writing about Clock Opera and ending the piece by noting how Clock Opera seem determined in their own special cut up way to remind listeners even in a world over filled with too much cynical contrived and complacent pop music how positively amazing pop music can be as an entertainment that can actively change perceptions I remember thinking I wonder if it is ok to describe them as an eclectic four piece avant pop group I remember deciding it was a good place to start

Town Hall Parade Brixton London SW2 1RJ TWIN SHADOW plays Electric Brixton after the sellout success of Dingwalls The name might as well be a movie title Twin Shadow in Forget Only it s not a movie it s a panoramic LP that introduces us to the twilight zone tale of George Lewis Jr The troubled son of a hairdresser and a teacher who lived many lives semi pro football massage therapy film maker and other things we ll tell you about when you re older George was born in the Dominican Republic and spent his formative years in Florida Not in a happening spot like Miami though Try an island that happened to be the winter home base of the Ringling Brothers Circus and palm tree flanked old people If you think that s strange You don t know the half of it And neither does George although he s trying to remember trying to piece the sepia toned scenes together along with a debut album that s all about letting go Or is it Like an art house double feature that leaves you wondering what the hell just happened in the best way possible Forget tells a spellbinding story without spelling everything out Forget isn t tethered to any trends or specific genre either Instead it seems almost to be hovering above the landscape of decades gone past checking in at rest stops with it s wheels pointed directly toward the future So don t be surprised to hear things abruptly shift from synth swept soundscapes I Can t Wait Castles In the Snow to glimmers of gossamer dance music For Now Shooting Holes At the Moon or full on power balladry Slow And who is that sitting next to George s director s chair Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear in the role of producer working closely with Twin Shadow fine tuning Forget s special effects while maintaining the memory wracked mood that George spent months perfecting in his Brooklyn apartment Brooklyn based label Terrible Records will be taking Twin Shadow s Forget on as their very first LP release It s bedroom recorded music but it s been done with the same attention as many classic B movies he says It s not like a slapdash home video though it s someone operating with very little at 100 percent of their ability In other words Forget is like The Seventh Seal filtered through the drive in feel of Faster Pussycat Kill Kill Meaning lots of tight shots careful lighting and a lingering sense that something s not quite right a film adaptation of George s life that s essentially a 40 minute waking dream Support from Brolin Kate Nash SPECIAL GUESTS Shacklewell Arms Thursday 1 November 2012 Sold Out 71 Shacklewell Lane London E8 2EB 10 Kate Nash

    taken under the wing of Mogwai who signed them to their Rock Action label alongside the likes of Part Chimp and James Orr Complex Errors manage to retain the elements of new wave and acid house that marked their early releases and build on it a merge of angular guitars spiraling euphoric synths and informed dance sounds underpinned by truly mesmerising beats and rhythms in expansive ambitious style THE TWILIGHT SAD are an indie band from Kilsyth Scotland and they combine folk influences with a more experimental live sound to create exciting indie music Drawing on musicians such as Daniel Johnston Arab Strap and Leonard Cohen they write songs about their own experiences in the town they grew up in Their recordings are richly layered but live they create a more intense experience with a visceral wall of sound OF MONTREAL CATS IN PARIS Koko Wednesday 6 October 2010 1a Camden High Street London NW1 7JE 14 OF MONTREAL play London s Koko this autumn Their songs soar and weave with energy and goodwill daring anyone who hears them to walk away without a smile on their face Listening to Of Montreal you might think that singer Kevin Barnes is missing the angst gene But the longer you listen the more you start to realize that maybe missing the angst gene is a blessing It allows Kevin to explore more fully his crazily creative ideas and to make wondrous music drawing on influences from the Byrds or even the Mamas And The Papas the group s songs are all sweet pop ditties as suitable for campfire singing as stage performance Of their legendary live show Make no mistake a Kevin Barnes led Of Montreal concert is a well choreographed affair It leaves not a second to the between songs audience band banter and request shouts for which many rock concerts are known and loved But that cost is more than returned in entertaining spectacle Indeed OM concerts risk being seen as theater whose soundtracks threaten to take over the performance But the reverse is actually the case They are tight live versions of impressively creative yet patently poppy studio productions Blog Critics Plus Cats In Paris Junip WOODPIGEON SOLO XOYO Monday 4 October 2010 32 37

solo covers of Joy Division the Knife and Massive Attack but with influences ranging from Neu to John Martyn Junip sound mostly like Junip They take González s softly plucked guitar and unhurried vocals and pair them with a louder sound and underlying current of hypnotic rhythms They craft their indie folk into dark moody and sometimes haunting songs while still keeping the beauty that made González s solo work famous in the first place PRAISE FROM THE PRESS Their sound is a mix of nylon stringed guitar his distinctive voice organs analogue synths and drums The songs are often dynamic melodic and shadowy Rough Trade José González is a sight to behold live with his soothingly lucid vocals leading you along a wonderful journey of transient bliss it s nothing short of magical Subba culture Download a free copy of the EP by signing up here www junip net WOODPIGEON s chamber folk concoctions of banjo glockenspiel choir and Mark Hamilton s diffident vocals make for thoughtful melodious moments and joyous rock outs Combining the mystical comic book fantasies of Mark s lyrics with the sparkling music of the band comparisons to Sufjan Stevens and his delightful ilk aren t far wrong setting Woodpigeon up to be the next great Canadian breakout band Fronted by Mark Hamilton Woodpigeon s music moves and contorts like a film soundtrack Lush grand moments complement Mark s
