love-is-all-european-tour

What? Love Is All

Gothenberg’s Love Is All are purveyers of superior jangly post punk, they were feted by the late great John Peel and he generally knew a thing or two about good music.
For Fans Of: Los Campesinos, Ponytail, Cause Co-Motion.

Support:

Deastro, or Randolph Chabot, is signed to Michigan’s excellent Ghostly International label and is responsible for some of the most expansive fantastical electronic pop around, his new album Moondaggers takes things to heady new heights. Over in Europe for just a handful of dates, catch him now as he sprinkles his magic pop dust all over the Proud stage.
For Fans Of: Animal Collective, Passion Pit, Throw Me The Statue.

Modernaire are noble-minded Oscar Wildstyle, Cruella De Mill and Chesty La Rue, 3 altogether very different beings playing cautionary tales of bloody revenge, lovelorn minotaurs, dancing vampires and flamboyant adventures.  Having already toured with The Ting Tings and supported a host of high end acts including The Whip, Daggers and Friendly Fires, Modernaire make the kind of truly danceable experimental pop.
For Fans Of: Kate Bush, The Knife, Moloko.

When? Saturday, May 9th. 20.00 – 02.30

Where? Proud Gallery, Camden.

How Much? £10

lo-fi-fnk

What? Lo Fi Fnk

Lo Fi Fnk (pronounced: LO-FI-FUNK) are a Swedish duo signed to Moshi Moshi, the label that has been a temporary home for the likes of Hot Chip, Architecture in Helsinki, Bloc Party and Friendly Fires over the years. They’ve been making music since their teens and now luckily they’re legally old enough to get into the clubs playing their music. Miss their glorious mix of skittering electronic bleeps, other-worldly-sounding vocals, and raw dance beats at your peril!
For Fans Of: Crystal Castles, Daft Punk, Cut Copy.

Support:

Casio Kids of Norway play gorgeous electro tinged indie dance jams with hypnotising pop melodies and vocal harmonies in both Norwegian and English. They’re influenced by an eclectic mix of afro-beat, techno and, like seemingly all Scandinavians (admittedly usually the Swedes), full on pop.
For Fans Of: Paul Simon, Cornelius, New Order.

The Hundred In The Hands is composed of The Boggs’ Jason Friedman and touring bandmate Eleanore Everdell, they make the kind of hypnotic, tribal disco that you can dance long through the night to or as the band themselves put it “These are soundsystem-backed, foot stomping, clap hands beats for akimbo-limbed boogie kids. Ballrooms and bar floors are built strong, it’s time to give them a pounding.”
For Fans Of: Television, The Golden Filter.

When? Saturday, May 16th. 20.00 – 02.30

Where? Proud Gallery, Camden.

How Much? £10

gold-teeth-can-see-the-futureWhat? Gold Teeth

I’ve been singing the praises of these guys for ages now and thankfully people are starting to take note including the BBC, Telegraph and Dazed and Confused. Their sound is a really fresh one, a kind of wonky global pop/rock combining elements of calypso, prog, ska, electro and rock. Hard to get your head around? Take a listen to a sample track below. Their perhaps less political but sonically at least I think they’re a better version of The King Blues.
For Fans Of: Gorillaz, The King Blues, Blur, The XX Teens.

Support:

Battant, are one of those bands who are inexplicably not massive, hopefully tonight’s show will go someway to rectifying that leaving the French three piece with another room full of converts. For those yet to be seduced by their dark charms expect to be swept away by their goth tinged electro-rock, that has already mades fans of the likes of Andrew Weatherall. – http://www.myspace.com/battantbattant
For Fans Of: The Stooges, The Velvet Underground, Depeche Mode.

Disasteradio
is computer game obsessed New Zealander Luke Rowell who essentially aims to soundtrack a night driving around town in a flame red Lambourghini with a computer created Kelly LeBrock at your side. It sounds good to me.
For Fans Of: Kraftwerk, Sparks, Neon Neon.

Shock Defeat! a play post-punk disco clatter that’s so good it provoked Felix from Hot Chip to say “I only like one Band in the whole of London and it is you”. Grand praise indeed. It sounds fresh. Kind of like Mark E Smith jamming with DFA.
For Fans Of: The Fall, Talking Heads, DFA.

When? Saturday, May 23rd.
