25 Feb

Balderdash & myself  have got together once again to put on a smart ….. & i mean it’s a smart line up. Playing at Buffalo Bar, Cardiff on the 17. 04. 2013.

We have the pleasure of bringing to you, playing their first gig of 2013, our good friends, the ethereal Violas. Cardiff dream pop who turned heads last summer when they released their matured ‘NOS  SOMNIA’ E.P, with their brooding layers reverberating neatly, they shimmer to gorgeous effect.

 R. Seiliog. Put simply his music drones & loops, elevated with cheeky little melodic jaunts & pops. Having spent much of 2010-12 recording & touring with H.Hawkline, Cate Le bon, Gruff Rhys & Euros Childs; R. Seiliog’s debut EP ‘Shuffles’ saw him prepare the world for his interwoven frayed, melodic threads of krautrock, psych & experimental electronics.

Just around the corner is the release date of the album ‘Diary of me’ by Laurence Made Me Cry on March 11th.  A folk tale entangled with electronic touches & organic sounds, paint a myriad of pictures. Awkward, beautiful & twee. It’s kinship kitchen sink drama with extra depth from a personal perspective.

I’ll be on DJ duties & possibly Balderdash, playing some good trippy vibes

So be there at the door by 7.30pm with your best glazed eyes & tippy tappy shoes if you please.

From Peski’s stable of Welsh bands come the charged escapades of VVolves,  i’m 6 months late of fingering the pulse of the development of this Monmouth/Cardiff band, but better late than never. I was made aware that the four piece are made from the conjoining efforts of two great Welsh language bands, which i was enjoying the sounds of a couple of years back, ‘Byd Dydd Sul’ who have disbanded & ‘Zimmermans’{named after the original surname of Bob Dylan}. All the great VVolves artwork is by ZimmermanTom Winfield. May the VVolves huff & puff & blow this Alternative,Electro,Industrial,Indie band house down. Oh! & check that Re-Mix noodling of Electro-nut Plyci, i chewed a good hole in my cheek during the track duration, cheeks are over-rated anyhow!
