Sunset Rubdown @ The Garage, Sept 15th.

Posted in Gigs, Hot Tickets, Music Video, Tracks with tags , , , on May 7, 2009 by musicmuleblog

What? Sunset Rubdown

Sunset Rubdown are the side project of the mercurial Spencer Krug of Wolf Parade fame. With two albums already in the bag there’s no shortage of quality material. Their songs are all built around the imagery conjured up by Spencer’s bizarre, ethereal, lyrics about snakes, spirits and magic. The sound is a big one littered with guitars, pianos, accordion, whistles, claps and horns and Spencer’s wonderfully unique voice. Don’t miss this rare UK date.

For Fans Of: Wolf Parade, Miracle Fortress, The Arcade Fire.

When? Tuesday, Sept 15th.

Where? The Garage, Highbury.

How Much? £10

Serpentine Sessions presents: Bon Iver @ Hyde Park, June 30th.

Posted in Gigs, Hot Tickets, Music Video, Tracks with tags , , , , on April 29, 2009 by musicmuleblog

What? Bon Iver

Bon Iver a.k.a. Justin Vernon from Wisconsin released one of the best albums of 2008 in the achingly beautiful ‘For Emma Forever Ago’. The album is beautiful stripped down Americana recorded in his father’s wood cabin in the woods of Wisconsin with Justin’s affecting high voice carrying each song to soaring peaks. I managed to catch him no less than three times last year and the album is even more moving live and as his more recent ‘Blood Bank’ EP has proved there seems no letting up on quality from newer material. Serpentine Sessions will be held in a specially designed 3000 capacity area in the Royal Park section of Hyde Park. See even the Queen must dig this guy!

When? Tuesday, June 30th.

Where? Hyde Park, London.

How Much? £25

What? TV On The Radio

TV On The Radio with their third album Dear Science, released last year, finally hit the big time. They’ve just announced this mammoth headline slot at Brixton Academy. Having seen the band live a good few times now I think they’re more than up to the task of filling the place with their magnificent noise. One of the best live bands around.Expect this to sell out quickly.
