OF MONTREAL

Manning Hall Malet Street London WC1

£12.50 ADVANCE

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.

When Southend’s immaculately attired garage rock quintet stalked onto the East End pub circuit in late 2005, it was immediately clear they were going to make waves in the indie fashion world, if nowhere else. But their debut album ‘On Strange House,’ proves that they have the substance to back-up their Dickensian undertaker image.

ADJAGAS

LAYLOW + LISA LINDLEY-JONES

Wednesday 28 November 2007
229 Great Portland Street London W1W 5PN

£10.50 ADV

One of the foremost exponents of the new wave of Sami, a Norweigian traditional musical form, Adjagas’s music is gentle, peaceful, hypnotic, quietly passionate, dreamlike, deeply spiritual and utterly engrossing. It is, at the same time, strangely alien. Lyrics are unrecognisable, startling vocals delivered in a style that veers between whispered but crystal clear sweetness, unbridled emotion and all points in between, sometimes hitting notes that may previously have never existed.



CARIBOU

Tuesday 27 November 2007
Middle Yard London NW1 8AB

£12 ADVANCE

Caribou, otherwise known as the composer of euphoric, dazzlingly beautiful electronic psychedelia, Dan Snaith, returns with a new single; the glowing perfect pop symphony ‘Melody Day’. Realising how trivial and derivative most mainstream pop songs are, Snaith became obsessed with writing a melody that was both distinctive, ecstatic yet cannily familiar. It sets the tone for his rousing new album, Andorra out now

SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE is the primary musical project of guitarist Ben Chasny. Chasny’s music is largely guitar-based, however it includes eastern influences, marked by drones, chimes, and eclectic percussive elements. The band is associated with numerous current scenes, most notably the New Weird America movement. Acts ranging from folk artist Devendra Banhart to drone metal band Sunn O))) to the highly experimental Current 93 count Chasny among friends. Six Organs has always been a critical darling, and the past few years have seen their stature in the indie world substantially increase.
