DREAM INTO DUST [10pm]
A melancholy tenor and bruised acoustic guitar fight for balance with unusual elements. Noise guitarist Bryin Dall, (best known from Genesis P-Orridge's Thee Majesty), frequently plays guitar with a machete Ex-PTV3 member Isaiah Singer wrenches deep, distorted basslines, while artist Daniel Kelly melodic synths over electronic beats.
"Derek Rush's intimate and powerful singing and songwriting style envelopes you and brings you to the level of the darkest depths of human emotion." [Sick Among the Pure]
"When all is said and done, Dream Into Dust doesn?t just create music. They turn sound into a textural element for the listener to feel and experience." [Legends]
"as if Radiohead had grown up listening to nothing but 4AD bands" [DSO]
"at times sounds like old Einstürzende Neubauten doing a Swans cover" [Corridor of Cells]
Dense layers of guitars, vocals, bass, keys, samples and synthesizers contribute to a form of experimental post-rock previously unheard. A human-driven laptop pumps drum loops, field recordings and found sounds, providing chest-thumping beats and textures that recall Music Has the Right to Children-era Boards of Canada and the best bits of Kraftwerk or My Bloody Valentine.
SLEEPING KINGS OF IONA [11pm]
Filling space with synths, warm organs, hiss and beats, this group has broken away from the scene of hardcore and emo in Buffalo, New York. Adding lush soundscapes, samples and haunting vocals, the band has drawn comparisons to Mercury Rev, Mogwai, Brian Eno, Sigur Ros, Bark Psychosis, DJ Shadow, Portishead, and Mum.
Female duo who play detached post-punk electro. This is also their record release party.
