Normil Hawaiians - 'More Wealth Than Money' released today!

Morning everyone!
 
What a brilliant day, flecked with snow and ice and sharp winter light. Thirty-five years ago Normil Hawaiians released their debut album 'More Wealth Than Money', today we’re thrilled to re-release this stunning album so it can stride out into its unique field of sound again.
 
‘More Wealth Than Money’ takes the listener on a quest over its four sides of vinyl as the group’s communal take on post punk starts sprouting leaves from its mouth, beginning to carve out a new furrow of dark psychedelia, industrial folk and a peculiarly British kosmische.
 
 
Alongside the re-mastered original double-album, our new re-issue includes a further full-length collection of demos and unreleased tracks from the album’s overlooked corners.
 
 
 
Tape loops, echo boxes, extended percussive sessions and duteous faith in the tones emanating from a particular old wah-wah pedal were all employed by Normil Hawaiians to stretch their sonic fabric into wild and redolent new dimensions for this record. As a result ‘More Wealth Than Money’ still feels truly expansive, brave, cinematic even as it documents the band’s travels into a plaintive pastoralism awash with waking dreams.
 
‘More Wealth Than Money’ sings anew today, getting its first proper UK release ever. Both the 2xCD and DLP versions come with a booklet contextualizing the release, full of anecdotes and photos from all band members. It is truly a thing of beauty! Available in all good record shops as of now, or if you prefer our webshop here.
 
 
 
 
 
We’ll also be selling copies of ‘More Wealth Than Money’ at the Café OTO Xmas Fair this Sunday too. We’ll be proffering many potential Xmas presents in the form of records, cds, t-shirts etc from noon through to 5pm.
 
Lots of our favourite labels and imprints will be there too including Skire, Golden Lab, Chocolate Monk, Penultimate Press, Where to Now?, Strange Attractor, Kye, Ecstatic Peace Library, Fitzcarraldo Editions and Treader. Please stop by, listen to something new, share a mulled beverage with us and say hello!

RICHARD DAWSON
NORMIL HAWAIIANS
Wednesday 20 December
Islington Assembly Hall, Upper Street, Islington, London, N1 2UD
7pm | £15 | TICKETS
 
RICHARD DAWSON can never been accused by listeners of a lack of artistic ambition. Whether they got on at the last stop - the 4 track Tyneside-Trout-Mask-through a-Vic and Bob-filter of 'Nothing Important' - or earlier in the journey, with 'The Glass Trunk's visceral song cycle or 'The Magic Bridge's sombre revels. Devotees of his earlier recordings will be at once intrigued by and slightly fearful of the prospect of a record that could make those three landmark releases look like formative work. 'Peasant' is that album, released on June 2nd through Weird World / Domino. From its first beguilingly muted fanfare to its spectacular climax exploring a Dark Ages masseuse's dangerous fascination with a mysterious artefact called the Pin of Quib, it will grab newcomers to Dawson's work by the scruff of the neck and refuse to let them go until they have signed a pledge of life-long allegiance.
 
Driven forward by exhilarating guitar flurries, Qawwali handclaps and bursts of choral ferocity, 'Peasant's eleven tracks sustain a momentum worthy of the lyrics' urgent subject matter. Dawson describes the themes of these songs as "Families struggling, families being broken up by circumstance, and - how do you keep it together? In the face of all of these horrors that life, or some system of life, is throwing at you?" The fact that these meticulously wrought narratives all unfold in the pre-mediaeval North Eastern kingdom of Bryneich - "any time from about 450AD to 780AD, after the withdrawal of the Roman Empire"- only makes their contemporary relevance more enduring.
 
Dawson's objective was to create "A panorama of a society which is at odds with itself and has great sickness in it, and perhaps doesn't take responsibility - blame going in all the wrong directions". But encountering 'Peasant's captivating sequence of occupational archetypes ('Herald', 'Ogre', 'Weaver', 'Scientist'), listeners might find themselves wondering if these multitudes could somehow be contained with one person. Dawson has already supported the release of 'Peasant' with a full UK tour - his first featuring a full live band. After wowing audiences at St John On Bethnal Green this June, it's a pleasure to welcome Richard back for an Xmas show with live band to play the esteemed Islington Assembly Hall.
 
NORMIL HAWAIIANS communal take on post punk sprouted leaves from its mouth in 1982, and began carving out a new furrow. Greater emphasis was awarded to improvisation within the group and as a result their songs embarked on longer, freer journeys towards the beaten bounds. They wanted these new songs to bear the weight of their new collective spirit so comfort zones had to be left behind. Tape loops, echo boxes, extended percussive sessions and duteous faith in the tones emanating from a particular old wah-wah pedal were all employed by Normil Hawaiians to stretch their sonic fabric into wild and redolent new dimensions.
 
At this very moment the group existed solely for the music, living together in a small cottage in the shadow of Foel Studios in the Welsh hills, sharing everything together and working long days to nurture and then burnish the music they had discovered between them. This is how the band's debut album 'More Wealth Than Money' was formed, through trial and close listening, through cultivation and patient growth. Of course there were significant amounts of mushrooms involved too and several UFO sightings, but when the sheep began to march in time to the music Normil Hawaiians knew they were creating something unique. 'More Wealth Than Money' will be re-issued lavishly on double LP this December through Upset The Rhythm, they are celebrating this release by performing t this special Xmas show at Islington Assembly Hall too.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Have a fantastic weekend, thanks for reading!

Get Shopping in February! New show announced!



Upset The Rhythm presents…

SHOPPING

Tuesday 6 February

Moth Club, Old Trades Hall, Valette St, Hackney Central, London, E9 6NU
7.30pm | £9 | http://www.wegottickets.com/event/424325

SHOPPING are propulsive bass lines, primitive disco-not-disco drums and guitar lines sharp as broken glass. The band was formed in 2012 by members Rachel Aggs (guitar), Billy Easter (bass) and Andrew Milk (drums), who've all done time in a plethora of notable UK DIY bands including Trash Kit and Wet Dog. They pull from a well of 70's post-punk with a voraciousness seldom seen these days, bringing to mind the jagged aggression of Gang of Four, the voracious yelp of The Slits and the dance inducing thrust of Delta 5 . Their debut LP 'Consumer Complaints' was released November 2013 in the UK via MILK records and quickly sold out its first pressing. A US re-issue of 'Consumer Complaints' came out in 2015 via Fat Cat records, followed up by their excellent second album 'Why Choose?' The band are tirelessly committed to taking their sound to new audiences and spreading the Shopping gospel, securing impressive gigs along the way including main support for ESG and Gang Of Four as well as a BBC 6 Music session for Marc Riley. They have toured in the UK and throughout Europe numerous times over the last few years and last year toured the USA with also awesome Gauche, look out for a new album ‘The Official Body’ through FatCat imminently!

Shannon Lay is heading to London next March!


Upset The Rhythm presents…

SHANNON LAY
Wednesday 7 March
The Islington, 1 Tolpuddle St, Angel, London, N1 0XT
7.30pm | £6 | http://www.wegottickets.com/event/424308

SHANNON LAY is a L.A. singer-songwriter whose new album, ‘Living Water’, is a work of plainspoken mysticism that goes to the small, bright truth of things, showcasing her unusual songwriting and quietly commanding voice. Shannon has been dominating the local scene in Los Angeles over the past two years, leaving everyone who witnesses completely breathless. ‘Living Water’ was recorded by Emmet Kelly (Cairo Gang, Bonnie Prince Billy, Ty Segall) in his Los Angeles home studio and you can even hear the room reacting to the music taking shape around it. Shannon has a voice that transcends time and space. You can’t tell if she’s old or new, if she’s sitting next to you, on a mountain top, or down in some canyon. Already her second LP to be released in 2017, Shannon is a prolific songwriter, one who lives and breathes melody and with guitar skills to boot. Despite it’s 14 tracks, Living Water comes in well under 40 minutes, but like Pink Moon or Just Another Diamond Day before it, this is music so potent it exists outside the realms of time – but in a world specific only to itself and the new feelings it creates. ’Living Water’ is a life-affirming celebration of the wounds we all wear, captured with Shannon’s deceptively straightforward approach. Like a late-summer sky the colour of a robin’s egg, the album’s outward simplicity masks the vastness of what lies behind. Having just finished a tour with Ty Segall, Shannon is set to support Kevin Morby on a national tour this winter.

NO AGE ARE COMING BACK TO LONDON NEXT APRIL!

Upset The Rhythm presents...

NO AGE
Wednesday 4 April
Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, 44 Pollard Row, Bethnal Green, London, E2 6NB
7:30pm | £12 | http://www.wegottickets.com/event/423505
* Tickets on sale from Friday 1st Dec at 9am

With the world around us bruised and bloodied with teeth already dug into the concrete curb, we find ourselves with the shadow of a large boot looming overhead. What better time for No Age? They know how to ecstatically rage & power on through pain, because what else are you gonna do? The future belongs to the cockroaches, and their new record is made for the disparate band of misfits who 2017 couldn't kill.

'Snares Like a Haircut' sounds like the goods, and smells like the buzzy burning off of an aura, the marine layer suddenly vanished, leaving a thin layer of smog over the songs, simmering sock gazing tunes, revved and displacing enormous amounts of sound soil. With 'Snares Like a Haircut', No Age scrub the itch in the little moments, engage actively with the process and carve/plaster/shave something in an album shape that'll last.



Re-imagined rippers, compelling ever forward; something that provokes, challenges on the ear. That was always the goal, but after a few years spent not No Age-ing, just working on that thing called life, is it any wonder that Dean and Randy wanted to pump out some rock and roll for the black hole? Does time mean nothing to you? Don't answer that.

MOOR MOTHER to play London this January, roll on 2018!



Upset The Rhythm presents…

MOOR MOTHER
Wednesday 10 January
The Islington, 1 Tolpuddle St, Angel, London, N1 0XT

MOOR MOTHER is the viscerally charged output of Philadelphia based interdisciplinary artist, Camae Ayewa. Her music is often harsh and strange, projecting both the cathartic anger of punk and the expansive improvisatory spirit of Sun Ra. Using a variety of machines, field recordings, and analog noisemakers, Ayewa constructs fractured, cacophonous waves for her words of punishing pertinence to ride. As a musician performing under the name she has toured in Europe and the U.S. at numerous festivals, colleges and universities sharing the stage with King Britt, Islam Chipsy, Claudia Rankine and Bell Hooks. As a soundscape artist she has had work featured at Samek Art Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art Chicago, and Everson Museum of Art.

Her latest album, Fetish Bones, was released through Don Giovanni Records in September 2016. The album features 13 songs conceived and recorded in Camae’s home studio and it is an album intended as a form of protest and as form of time travel — a collection of sounds that are events themselves, telling stories rich in history about the journey that brings us to today and the future we are creating. Fetish Bones is not an album meant to help you forget. It is made so that you will remember the injustices that we bear witness to and participate in.


“Fetish Bones is her masterclass on creating a sensory experience that interrogates your complicity, pushing you through a door that sends you hurtling through time.” – PITCHFORK

Moor Mother might be the most radical – even the most useful – Afrofuturist artist to emerge for years. Fetish Bones works not just as an atlas and an archive but as a mausoleum, housing the bones of those who have fallen along a bloody trail stretching all the way back to 1886.” – WIRE

“Her music is deliberately raw and unfiltered, like human feelings” – FADER

Future Islands and Roy Montgomery in London this week! Plus this Saturday's Independent Label Market


Hello there!
Huge thanks for coming out to see Shopping, Protomartyr, Mount Eerie and Escape-ism these last few weeks. You’ve been as much night owls as we have, was brilliant to see you all. This week we have the indispensible Future Islands back in the big smoke for three nights at the O2 Academy Brixton. True DIY synth pop heart-breakers made good, Future Islands have been making our lives better since we released their debut album back in 2008. These three shows at Brixton represent the bands biggest shows to date, I hope you can join us to celebrate their most vintage year yet. Tickets are now only available for Wednesday’s event so with that in mind it’s well worth buying in advance to avoid missing out on this unprecedented moment in their career. Read on for all ticket links and show info.


This Thursday we’re also very lucky to have the one and only Roy Montgomery touchdown at Café OTO to play an incredibly rare set for us. Joined by Alexander Tucker in support, this promises to be a very special evening of pastoral guitar ambience and cartographical drone par excellence. Again, we’re almost totally out of tickets for this one too, so please do snap some of the last ones up if you can, it’ll be too good to miss, see below for details.

In terms of newly confirmed UTR shows this week, we confirmed a concert for Chain And The Gang for next February, plus Richard Dawson chose Normil Hawaiians to open for him at our Xmas show at Islington Assembly Hall on December 20th too. We’ll be announcing a lot of new 2018 shows in the coming weeks too, watch this space.

Upset The Rhythm will be taking part in this Saturday's Independent Label Market at Spitalfields Market, it’s always a blast. We'll have lots of new releases (from The World, Darlene Shrugg, Gen Pop and Normil Hawaiians), back catalogue bargains, t-shirts, stickers and badges all on offer, plus we might even wear Santa hats and ply you with mulled wine! We’ll be looking forward to meeting you and looking decidedly merry from 11am this Saturday. Here’s the poster so you can see all the other excellent labels and breweries joining the knees up too.



Talking of new releases, we wanted to share with you the brand new mesmeric video for ‘Inherit The Wind’ by Darlene Shrugg. Featuring some blazing live footage of the band, the video (made by Meg Remy herself) practically brims with coming of age visuals seemingly dug up from after-school specials. ‘Inherit The Wind’ is taken from Darlene Shrugg’s self-titled debut album that we released a few weeks ago. Enjoy!

FUTURE ISLANDS
ZACK MEXICO
Monday 20 November – SOLD OUT
Tuesday 21 November – SOLD OUT
Wednesday 22 November
In collaboration with Parallel Lines
O2 Academy Brixton, 211 Stockwell Rd, Brixton, London SW9 9SL
7pm I Tickets: http://future-islands.com/?cs- event=74572#shows

The years since the release of Singles have been transformative for Future Islands, catapulting the Baltimore-based band from cult favorites to synthpop icons. As addictive songs like breakout 'Seasons (Waiting on You)' turned the world on to sublime pleasures a loyal fan base already knew, this hard-touring band ploughed forward, playing their 1000th show in July 2015 and celebrating their 10th anniversary in February 2016. This year Future Islands returned at the top of their game with new album The Far Field, delivering twelve chest-pounding love songs and odes to the road as only they can. 

The Far Field refines and builds on the breakthroughs of Singles, bursting with undeniable hooks and disarmingly honest lyrics written by Samuel T. Herring (vocals, lyrics), William Cashion (bass, guitars), and Gerrit Welmers (keyboards, programming). The band began writing new material in January 2016 on the coast of North Carolina, and continued throughout the year in Baltimore before road-testing these songs with a series of secret shows under fake names. In November 2016, they settled in with Grammy Award-winning producer John Congleton at Los Angeles’ legendary Sunset Sound, where everyone from The Beach Boys to Prince have laid down masterpieces.

The result is Future Islands’ best set of songs yet, both an emotional summation of the themes they’ve explored over the past decade and a further distillation of their signature art-pop sound. It’s the first Future Islands record featuring live drums by Michael Lowry, who joined the band prior to their viral performance of ‘Seasons’ on Letterman, and whose energy propels the band’s sound to new heights. With Congleton’s production and string and horn arrangements by Patrick McMinn, The Far Field finds Future Islands crafting soundscapes larger and more opulent than ever before, as sonically lush and expansive as they are lyrically raw and direct. These three epic shows at  the O2 Brixton Academy this week represent the largest shows the band have played to date, we hope you can join us to celebrate such a terrific year!

Upset The Rhythm presents…

ROY MONTGOMERY
ALEXANDER TUCKER

Thursday 23 November
In collaboration with Café OTO
Cafe OTO, 22 Ashwin Street, Dalston, London, E8 3DL
7.30pm | £10 |
https://www.cafeoto.co.uk/events/roy-montgomery/

ROY MONTGOMERY is a guitarist and academic from New Zealand. Across an array of peerless solo and collaborative releases on labels like Kranky, Siltbreeze and VHF he is the architect of a widescreen drone aesthetic exploring psychedelic abstraction and pastoral minimalism that has proved to be highly influential. A key protagonist in the Christchurch 80s noise rock scene, his minimalist post-punk band The Pin Group were the first act to release on Flying Nun and lead to other explorations in short-lived drone project The Shallows and the gloriously open-ended freedoms of noise pop outfit Dadamah.

After a quiet spell, Montgomery returned in the late 90s, producing towering spires of guitar lines that exposed fragility between the strums. With his solo releases and in collaboration with Flying Saucer Attack, Bardo Pond (Hash Jar Tempo), and Chris Heaphy (Dissolve), his focus shifted from the truth-mining of rock music to epic celestialism. His ambitious yet humble tracks outstrip their origins, and Montgomery toured the world sitting cross-legged on the floor, playing twenty-plus-minute compositions. A long period of silence followed, marked only with a split album with Grouper (who lists Montgomery as a primary influence), involvement in Torlesse Super Group, and a couple of thematic variations serving as soundtracks for films. He unexpectedly re-emerged in 2016 with R M H Q (also know as Roy Montgomery's Headquarters) on Grapefruit/Ba Da Bing, four albums of new material released simultaneously that marked a return to his distinctive pastoral guitar style but added the rare sound of his singing voice. Like all of his catalogue listening to his work is a visceral experience with repeating phrases swelling and decaying, immersing the listener in the cyclical narrative of his compositions.

ALEXANDER TUCKER is a British avant-pop chamber drone artist who has released solo albums on ATP and Thrill Jockey, he's also the cosmic guitarist in Grumbling Fur. His live shows fuse self-harmonizing vocal performances with tone generators and looped instrumentation to create a bewildering feast for the senses that seems to tap the wyrd canon of English psychedelia as much as the melodic reverie of contemporary electronic and drone music.



See you all soon I hope, thanks again for reading!

Chain And The Gang - back in London next Feb!


Upset The Rhythm presents…

CHAIN AND THE GANG
Monday 26 February
OSLO, 1a Amhurst Road, Hackney, E8 1LL
7.30pm | £10 | http://www.wegottickets.com/event/422746

CHAIN & THE GANG are a dynamic and irresistible live combo that pens provocative, unforgettable odes to obedience and total destruction. They are led by the remarkable Ian Svenonius; the prime mover behind two of the most essential bands of our time, Nation Of Ulysses and The Make-Up, and author of several books, including The Psychic Soviet and Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock 'n' Roll Group. Ian is also an online talk show host and auteur filmmaker. Chain And The Gang deal in a radical rock n roll that updates rock, blues, and gospel music or vocal quartets from the late 50s /early 60s for the discerning few. After nodding off to the washed-out zzzounds of the latest five-star folly critic’s catastrophe, Chain & the Gang decided to respond with their patented perversity; they reached to the farther corner of the lab and came up with an immortal classic in the hard-to-hear genre of “EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC”. Its a foot-tapping, head scratching, torso tornado that will crinkle the connossieur’s temple in a tantrum of cerebral delight. ”EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC” is due for release through Radical Elite Record soon.
