November is proving to be another month of great shows, we’ve got something for everyone.From huge chart topping Dj Example at the Winter Gardens, to legendary Byrds frontman Roger McGuinn at St Georges Church. These shows will be hosting some excellent supports:
November 5th is Ben Watt Trio at Komedia
Main support comes from Meadowlark, an alternative group from Bristol, England, which of whom consist of singer Kate McGill, Carl Jones, and Daniel Broadley.
“Meadowlark have got me. And I think they’ll probably have you to” – Fortitude.
November 6th is Example at Eastbourne Winter Garden
Support comes from Delta Heavy, the most exciting duo to hit dance-floors since Chase & Status and Nero, although if anything their music is even harder and heavier, darker and more multi-textured.
Influenced as much by UK drum & bass as the recent explosion of dance music in the US – they have huge international appeal.
November 12th is Alphabets Heaven
Support comes from: Shinamo Moki – an electronic duo originating from the south coast of England combining their passion of 90’s Anime, Japanese contemporary art, nature and Eastern architecture with sparse synths and splintering, textural percussions to form a core to their sound.
“There is something otherworldly and uncertain to Shinamo Moki’s music, yet fun and accessible” – URF
Second support comes from Momotaro, a local 4 piece acoustic electronica band. Their songs have a signature blend of spongy bass drones, samples and warm guitar, with shimmering, soulful vocal melodies that sits it well within the electronica scene. Accompanied with mesmerising visuals throughout their live show by Woodham. “If the album is as good as what we’ve heard already, then 2014 should be a great year for Momotaro”. Brighton Music Blog
DJ-ing is local gig-freak Flavia Aliverti – Foreign Skin! An audio/Visual, self styled producer of sample based electronic, ambient and hip hop music. “Her Hong Kong roots run through the tracks with oriental instrumentals melting seamlessly into the synthy hip hop aesthetic” Source Magazine.
November 24th is Ásgeir at Komedia
Support comes from Lay Low, the alter-ego of Icelandic singer/songwriter Lovísa Elísabet Sigrúnardóttir. Starting out as a pianist and bass guitar player; she has jammed on keyboards and synthesizers with alternative rock band, Benny Crespo’s Band and found her voice in blues folk and a little honky tonky bop collaborating with producers such as Liam Watson. Although her new material is taking on a new trip hop twist, LAY LOW’s distinct musical journey can still be felt at its roots, producing a honed yet experimental sound that is all her own. “It is simply impossible to ignore one of the most terrific female vocalists – and songwriters – to come out of Iceland in recent years.” – Indierockcafe.com
Additional support on the night comes from Tenterhook, “the 19-year-old singer-songwriter from London is just full of surprises. His EP has already been played on Amazing Radio, BBC Radio 1 and XFM, and he managed to sell out his first show at the popular Servants Jazz Quarters: a bar and music venue in North East London. He also has a beautiful vocal range”. Music Umpire
November 27th is Sharon Van Etten at The Corn Exchange
Support comes from Marisa Anderson, a composer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist living in Portland Oregon. Combining boundless creative imagination with a deep reverence for American folk, blues and country music, Marisa Anderson’s guitar playing is fluid, emotional, dexterous and original.
“Her sound has strength in restless variety…Anderson’s playing is heartfelt and utterly American, free from grandstanding and steeped in respect for the old tradition.” Wire Magazine
