FINAL FANTASY is the solo project of Owen Pallett ex Hidden Cameras member, violist / arranger for The Arcade Fire and guitarist and vocalist from Torontos Les Mouches who has won fans including David Bowie and U2. Tonight sees him promote his recently released album 'Has a Good Home'.
Performing by himself with only his violin and looping pedal, Owen manages to build up the most complex wonderful songs with catchy hooks and euphoric lush melodies that recall Rufus Wainwright, Philip Glass and in places Joanna Newsom and Devendra Banhart...
New York's GRIZZLY BEAR play their first London show that sees them deliver a nostalgic amalgamation of found sounds and layered vocals bound to thrill fans of Sufjan Stevens, Nick Drake, Animal Collective, and the Unicorns. Get on this now, this is going to be massive news soon!!
"The pure atmospheric power of the songs is more than enough to hypnotize" - Rolling Stone
"Draped in soft loops and baggy net of acoustic guitars, the record reveals an unaffected, hypnotic animal that's more stoner Sebadoh than freaked-out Fahey." - CMJ
"The gentlemen of Grizzly Bear paw around in wholly distinct regions of gentle, nocturnal psych-folk, conjuring visions of an imagined bedroom collaboration between the Doug Yule-era Velvet Underground, Nick Drake, and a pajama-clad Pooh with his head jammed in a honey jar." - Pitchfork Media
"...the lo-fi psychedelic drift of Grizzly Bear's debut may have you thinking more often of classic space-cases like Syd Barrett and Skip Spence." - Time Out NY
