James Yuill - Laptop Wizard

What? James Yuill has a knack for throwing together a line up and he’s done it again for this Thurs night in Islington. Apart from James the line-up features the bordering on new Music Mule obsessions Django Django and the synth pop noodlings and perhaps my next new obsession Fenech-Soler. James Yuill is the king of electro-folk – think Kings Of Convenience remixed by Chemical Bros. For Fans Of: Er.. Kings Of Convenience and Chemical Bros!

Django Django have been on my stereo a lot since discovering them on MySpace and catching them at Camden Crawl. The vibe is electro tinged folk freak-outs. For Fans Of: The Earlies, Archie Bronson Outfit, Animal COllective.

Fenech-Soler are new to me but not for much longer I hope. They sound great. Continuing along the 80s obsessed theme of today’s music scene but thankfully with some real substance. Excited about this! For Fans Of: Neon Neon, Empire Of The Sun, Tigercity, Radio 4.

When? Thursday, May 14th.

Where? The Lexington, Islington.

How Much? £8

What? James Yuill + Post War Years + Wave Machines

A truly hot bill the Chess Club record label have lined up as part of their ‘Singles Tour’. James Yuill, a.k.a. ‘Yuilly’ according to his MySpace, headlines the night with his heartfelt electro folk tunes. He’s so hot right now old ‘Yuilly’!
For fans of: Kings Of Convenience, The Whitest Boy Alive, Adem, Tunng.

Post War Years take the main support slot and I’m not too familiar with them but like what I’ve heard of their off kilter electro indie jams. They were also highly recommended by the following band…
For Fans of: err Wave Machines, Foals, Beta Band.

Wave Machines I just saw play at a Bloody Awful Poetry night on Wednesday and they were AMAZING. Electro indie grooves that could make Prince shake his tiny rump and lyrcis that make you want to laugh and cry in equal measure.
For fans of: Prince, Beta Band, The Rapture, Beck, Passion Pit.

When? Wednesday, 25th February.

Where? The Lexington, Islington.

How Much? £7
