We’re excited to welcome back Gold Panda next week - he plays St Johns Church in Hackney. Half of Where you Live is still in heavy rotation with us and it’s a treat to get to see it again as 2013 ebbs away. Support comes from Brolin.
Turned out we were a few hours early yesterday when we posted a terrific Linda Perhacs session - she announced her first album for a very long time yesterday - out on Sufjan Stevens label, and featuring Julia Holter and Nite Jewel. Listen to a full version of Freely above and see her this week in London
The Linda Perhacs comeback trail is gathering pace - she’s been playing shows in Europe for the first time in a very long time, and this week London gets a first chance to hear songs from her lost classic Parallelograms since the 1970s. We’ll also get a taste of her new record, including ‘Freely’ (from 5 mins) a song you can watch and hear via a session she did for Dutch website 3voor12.
Here are the first batch of names for Field Day Saturday. Shaun Keaveny and 6 Music had the first word this morning and a chat with Metronomy man Joe Mount. You can hear Field Day’s own chat with the man (and Omar Souleyman) below, and find out the other first names above.
An excellent bit with Stephen Malkmus popped up in last weekend’s Observer paper. You can read the insightful look at what Malkmus listens to over on the Guardian website here. There’s plenty - from the Dead Kennedys, The Replacements and classic VU to dig into and read about.
Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks play for us early next year at The Forum. Bag tickets here.
This weekend Patten launches his terrific new Eolian Instate EP - his first release with Warp Records. The night (it’s a late one) happens at Shacklewell Arms this Saturday and we’re very happy to announce Daphni as a special guest DJ too.
Another Field Day special on Rinse happened this Saturday. Have a listen below to the whole show ahead of a big news day for Field Day tomorrow.
