One of the first UK shows from the Parisian three-piece formed from the ashes of cult space-rockers Cyann & Ben. They say they meld “tribal beats, krautrock synths and hypnotic guitars”, which to us means they sound like Can circa ‘Ege Bamyasi’, Pavement circa ‘Terror Twilight’ and New Order circa ‘Low-Life’, but to them means they sound like “Syd Barrett, Kraftwerk and The Flaming Lips”. Either way, we’re not arguing. They’re incredible. That’s why we’re releasing their debut single ‘Lonesome George’ on Sonic Cathedral Recordings on October 5 and their self-titled album next January.
LE VOLUME COURBE
Le Volume Courbe is the unique project of Charlotte Marionneau, who recorded her weird and wonderful debut album ‘I Killed My Best Friend’ with a host of special guests, including David Roback and Hope Sandoval (Mazzy Star), Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine), Andrew Innes (Primal Scream) and Tim Holmes (Death In Vegas).
Solo show of ethereal electronica from Brooklyn-based artist Ryan Skyward. His new album ‘Moved By Opposing Forces’ is released on Rocket Girl on November 2.
