Posted in Gigs, Hot Tickets, Tracks with tags , , , , , , on May 12, 2009 by musicmuleblog

What? Adventures In The Beetroot Field + I’ll Fit present:

This is surely one of the line-ups of the year including:

White Denim from Austin, Texas are one of the best live bands around. They’re awesome on record too but the live experience is something you should catch at least once in a lifetime. A 3-piece playing danceable, bluesy, garage rock jams served with a healthy dose of the wondrous voice of front man James Petralli. They will tear the Old Blue last apart!
For Fans Of: Hendrix, The Soft Pack, The White Stripes.

The Gay Blades are from NYC and are in town to promote their forthcoming debut LP ‘Ghosts’. A reputation for coming across as either drunk or high or both but the music when it comes off has been described as “glamorous punk rock”.
For Fans Of: Bowie, Queen, Green Day.

Air France (DJ Set) are a duo from Gothenberg, Sweden who made the most beautiful, blissed out album of 2008 called ‘No Way Down’. Since then they’ve also done some killer remixes including one for Friendly Fires which you’ll find below.
For Fans Of: The Avalanches, Air.

When? Monday, May 18th.

Where? The Old Blue Last, Shoreditch.

How Much? Only £6!!!

Friday

Friendly Fires – Skeleton Boy (Air France Remix)

I’m not always a massive fan of remixes but this re-working of Friendly Fires gem ‘Skeleton Boy’ by Air France hits the spot. Apparently they don’t usually do remixes as the Swedish duo consider them a bit crap but if they do then they really tear the track to bits and make it their own. They’ve done themselves justice and the remix nicely slips into their body of work, which if you’re unfamiliar with, is superb.  I hate to call it a chill album so check out the laid back Sunday morning vibes of their debut No Way Down, one of the best of 2008.

Saturday

Wave Machines – Punk Spirit

A recent discovery of mine Liverpool’s Wave Machines are a joy to behold live and it sounds like they’ve got the recorded material to back it up. I can’t wait for their debut album, due out later this year, but for now wrap your ears around this perfect slab of cheeky Scouse indie pop. Some inspired lyrics – it won’t take long for you to hear what I mean.

Sunday

Mumford & Sons – White Blank Page

A really powerful folk song from London’s own Mumford & Sons. I’ve been playing this track for weeks since stumbling across it on MySpace somehow and have recently learnt that a friend’s brother is in the band. Happy days. This has a Bonnie Prince Billy intensity to it, yes it’s that good. The band have just announced a headline show at Scala on April 8th, look out for a post on that coming right up.
