Barry Hyde & The Malody Ensemble is the new project from The Futureheads’ Lead Singer. A far cry from the Futureheads’ trailblazing herky-jerky indie hits, his dramatic and moving record establishes Hyde as an idiosyncratic songwriter and pianist who deserves to stand alongside the likes of John Grant, Meilyr Jones, and Perfume Genius.

MOTIVE DJ (NTS RADIO)

21 Notting Hill Gate London W11 3JQ

Mabel has confirmed details of a surprise, intimate London show at Notting Hill Arts Club on July 21st, fresh from the launch of acclaimed new single ‘Thinking Of You’. Tickets the show are available via Dice.

Having first aired as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World this week, ‘Thinking Of You’ follows a breakout few months for Mabel, who was nominated for the BBC Sound Poll, Spotify’s Ones To Watch and the Blog Sound of 2016 after just two tracks: she has since collaborated with SBTRKT, toured with Years & Years (including Wembley Arena), and made her debut festival appearances at the likes of Glastonbury, Field Day and Great Escape.

Cool and effortlessly confident, ‘Thinking Of You’ draws intimately on those wider troubles of dealing with relationships when things are changing rapidly around you: it’s about missing people and also home. In Mabel’s words “relationships with cities are similar to relationships with people, being away from both can really make you appreciate what you have”.  Equally as inspired by iconic 90s R&B – Destiny’s Child, Lauryn Hill – as the contemporary, soulful hip-hop of Drake, the results are Mabel’s most accomplished yet, and arrive after an intense period of writing, touring and self-discovery for the only-just-turned-twenty-year-old.

Unknowingly first glimpsed by many in a cameo for Skepta’s ‘Shutdown’ video, Mabel has since found her own voice as one of Pop’s most refreshing and positive new figures. Having learnt to play the piano aged five, music was undoubtedly in Mabel’s blood (as her family – patiently sitting through yet another DIY dance routine which she’d choreographed with her sister – could attest to). Moving between Malaga, Stockholm and London as a kid – but unable to find anyone at school who shared her passion for R&B – Mabel resisted the call to her roots (musically, and culturally) for years. Then, she quietly enrolled to study production and music theory at a college (previously attended by the likes of Robyn) and connected with Josh Crocker in Leeds to complete quickly-viral debut track ‘Know Me Better’ in secret.

In the build-up to ‘Thinking Of You’, Mabel was also recently commissioned to create a video project commemorating the opening of the new Tate Modern building: the subsequent film – soundtracked by the specially-written new track, ‘Talk About Forever’ – also fulfilled Mabel’s childhood-dream return to dance routines, in the psychedelic environment of Gustav Metzger’s ‘Liquid Crystal Environment’ installation. Finding her feet in the spotlight, you sense this won’t be the last full-circle ambition coming Mabel’s way in the months ahead.

“21-year-old Jamie Isaac is a singer and producer from South London. Despite his relatively young age, Isaac is extraordinarily gifted — he’s a classically-trained pianist, has a choral singing background, and was accepted into the selective, prodigious BRIT school. There, he was classmates with Archy Marshall (best known as King Krule), and the two struck up a friendship. Today, Isaac — alongside Marshall — is part of a loose collective of friends and musicians based in South East London making warm, soulful, intimate, and slightly melancholic music that also includes artists like Jesse James Soloman, Jadasea, and Black Mack.”

KELSEY LU

SPECIAL GUESTS
The Waiting Room
Monday 11 July 2016
175 Stoke Newington High Street London N16 0LH

FREE ENTRY 8PM

DATE AND VENUE CHANGE: both dates at Servant Jazz Quarters have moved to The Waiting Room on 11 July. Original tickets remain valid.

Introduced to the world through the sparse glory of Morning After Coffee, Kelsey Lu’s soaring and scooping tones alongside blue cello tones were all we needed to get hooked.

The classically trained cellist soaked in the richness of her own voice, manoeuvring it to mirror the strings. Despite her training, Kelsey Lu doesn’t shelter herself with the typical chamber tradition. Counting Dev Hynes, Chairlift’s Patrick Wimberly and Wet as collaborators and performing with Kelela and more, she finds freedom in the warped experimentation of tracks like Bend.

Like Lianne La Havas without the restraints of formal production, this show at The Waiting Room isn’t one to miss.

BIG DEAL

KAGOULE + FAZERDAZE

Wednesday 15 June 2016
1a Amhurst Road Hackney London E8 1LL

£8 ADV 7.30PM

It’s been a remarkable few years for Kacey Underwood and Alice Costelloe, the London-based duo better known as Big Deal. After meeting in 2010 when Kacey taught Alice some songs on guitar, the twists and turns of their on-going relationship has been documented via their catalogue of intense rock-pop songs. “Our relationship has always given us plenty of inspiration to write music.” Costelloe says.

Having received widespread acclaim for their first two albums, 2011’s ‘Lights Out’ and 2013’s ‘June Gloom’, the band were invited to join Depeche Mode on tour. “Something clicked for us during that time,” they explain. “Touring with them made us realise we had been hiding when we should be stepping in to the light.” This realisation resulted in the band adopting a stronger, bolder attitude to making music.

Released via FatCat Records, ‘Say Yes’, the band’s third studio album, began as an entirely self-funded project. “We had to borrow money to get the album made—it was very risky,” explains Costelloe.

The task was only made more challenging when the duo’s laptop, containing demos and ideas for the new record, was stolen in December of 2014. “We had to start everything from scratch—it was fight or flight and we decided to fight,” they say. “Pretty much everything that could fall apart for us, did. This included parting with our label [Mute], breaking up a relationship, band members leaving and losing all of our music when my apartment was broken in to. We didn’t want to give up, or revel in our misery. We decided instead to try and turn it into something magic.”

Typically confessional, it’s hard not to connect with the raw honesty of the lyrics on ‘Say Yes’. Sonically the record still sounds very much like Big Deal, but it evidences a certain newfound confidence, the pair explain “We’ve done everything backwards. Most bands spend a few years figuring themselves out before releasing a record. We released a record and then have spent a few years finding ourselves.”
