What? Ariel Pink

Ariel Pink headlines this Upset The Rhythm night at one of my favourite venues in London, The Luminaire in Kilburn. Ariel Pink has been producing wonky self recorded bedroom pop in his bedroom for years now but he’s been receiving a lot more attention of late with his album ‘Worn Copy’, released under the Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti moniker, earning him a place in Amazon’s top 100 indie albums of all time list.

For Fans Of: Animal Collective, Panda Bear, The Flaming Lips.

Support comes from a teaming up of New York noise artist Prurient & the altogether more poppy Cold Cave of Pennsylvania, Ô Paon and Holloys.

It’s Holloys that I’m particularly excited to see after recently acquiring their fantastic ‘Art Wars’ EP,  an enthralling and danceable noise which Rough Trade describes as “beat-heavy blend of trance, dance, afropop polyrhythm, neo-prog, electronica and soaring pop melodies”. Be sure to get their early to catch them.

When? Wednesday, May 2oth. Doors 7.30pm

Where? The Luminaire, Kilburn.

How Much? £8.50

What? Women + Wavves

I saw Canadians ‘Women’ supporting fellow countryman Chad Van Gaalen (also producer of their debut album) on his UK tour recently and was suitably impressed by their noisy rumblings. I clearly wasn’t the only one as they’re back with a headline tour of their own. Layers of noisy guitar building over and giving way to sweet pop harmonies.

For fans of: Animal Collective, Annuals.

Support comes from the much hyped Wavves from California who plays (really!) distorted beach boys surf jams. Looking forward to him.

For fans of: Vivian Girls, Pixies, The Stooges.

When? Tuesday, March 3rd.

Where? The Lexington, Islington.

How Much? £6.50
