SHOW SPOTLIGHT - Rat Columns, Honey Joy & Slushy Guts in London this April!


Upset The Rhythm presents…



RAT COLUMNS
HONEY JOY
SLUSHY GUTS
Wednesday 19 April
The Lexington, 96-98 Pentonville Road, Islington, London, N1 9JB
7.30pm | £6 | http://www.wegottickets.com/event/390472 

RAT COLUMNS is the mutable musical project of David West, an artist as prolific as he is diverse in his output. West is the driving force behind the groups Rank/Xerox, Liberation and Lace Curtain, he was also a member of Total Control, and most recently debuted a solo album proper. Whether its forward-facing punk or turning his hand to crafting sleek prisms of pop, West's credentials check out. Rat Columns is no exception, always central to his vision and returned to many times since its inception in Perth almost a decade ago. Over the years the band has morphed and continued with an array of different friends from the USA and Australia, always finding David West dancing through the long shadows at its core. Working with many distinguished underground imprints including Blackest Ever Black, Adagio 830, Smart Guy Records and RIP Society, Rat Columns have left in their wake a trail of 7"s, EPs and two full length albums. Now a third album, entitled 'Candle Power' is cued for release through Upset The Rhythm this April. 'Candle Power' is packed full of chiming guitar pop, cutting in with moments of soul, disco and experimental plots.

HONEY JOY are five mates who came together through a mutual love of curry, Mean Girls and Paul McCartney’s hand gestures. They play indie punk music and have been compared to The Thermals and Xray Spex. They released two brilliant EPs last year and have just finished recording their first full length with MJ from Hookworms, which is soon to be released in the US through Infinity Cat records. 

SLUSHY GUTS is more of a group then a band (M.E.S distinction), having revolved around founding member Steve Keane since it's inception in 2009. Originally a solo bedroom project (B. White definition) Slushy Guts has mutated (H.P Lovecraft style) over the course of 4 albums and a "shit-load" (Slim Pickens) of tape and cdr releases. Evolving organically (according to Jean-Baptiste  Lamarck), it's presentation facilitated by whoever's around, Steve's songs exist in the spaces between genres, at once melodic and discordant (Engelbert Humperdinck definition), concerned with deconstructing 'it all' (definition unknown) and gluing it back together again. With current members Sam and Luke Walsh on bass and drums and James Rowland on guitar, Slushy Guts is currently something closely resembling a rock 'n' roll quartet (Rev. David A. Noebel definition.) Bobby Davro, 2017.

Wolf Eyes tomorrow, plus Mary Ocher coming soon!



Hey there!
Wolf Eyes are playing for us tomorrow at Manor House’s ExFed Warehouse (behind New River Studios). We’ll be celebrating the release of the band’s brand new album entitled ‘Undertow’, out tomorrow on their imprint Lower Floor Music. We’ll have copies of the album for sale at the show accompanied by a special fold-out A2 poster/zine and a bonus disc of a lost Wolf Eyes album to boot.
Joining Wolf Eyes for this raging evening will be Mumdance with a special modular improv set and the whirlwind of thrashing sound known as Guttersnipe. If that wasn’t already an overflowing cup there will also be a hypnogogic light machine installation to lose yourself within and a selection of venerated DJs throwing down all the best songs.
Doors will open from 8pm with tickets being sold on the door for £12, plus live music will kick off around 8.45pm. Read on for all the particulars, including our full listing for Mary Ocher’s upcoming London concert too.
 
Also, this week we announced that Portuguese dream punk sisters Pega Monstro have a brand new album entitled Casa de Cima planned for release with Upset The Rhythm on June 2nd. You can listen to the immense 'Partir a Loica' taken from the album below. Loud & Quiet just premiered the track with Maria from the band adding:

“’Partir a Loica’ is a Portuguese expression meaning to shake things up (literally to break all the dishes), to take a fiery U-turn on a path that has been misunderstood by those in power for instance.

Casa de Cima by Pega Monstro is available to pre-order now on LP and CD!

WOLF EYES are the USA's longest-running homemade, primitive, electronic, poetry & radical vibes trio. They don't just release albums they launch scotched, taped nuclear audio fronts on humanity. Wolf Eyes dropped a behemoth of a record last year with 'I Am A Problem: Mind In Pieces' on Jack White's Third Man Records, but this time they are switching things up in more ways than one for their forthcoming 'Undertow' album. The Detroit dark ambient sculptors are launching a new imprint called Lower Floor Music, and the album will be the first release on the label. The first foray into the new album is the title track, which is self-described as a "sea-bottom R&B sound lurch" featuring ambient synth and haunting spoken vocals. This show acts as an official album launch, celebrating the release of 'Undertow' into the world.
MUMDANCE has built a reputation as one of the world’s most inventive DJs and producers, drawing from sounds from across the world but always putting his own unique spin on them. His early days as a producer saw him collaborate with big names from both Europe (Brodinski, Jammer, Skepta) and further afield, such as Mexican legend Toy Selectah, Brazilian groups Bondo Do Role and Banda Uó, and later Egyptian mahraganat icon Sadat. In 2013, following a two-year hiatus from original music, Mumdance released his most critically acclaimed music to date. His 2013 mixtape Twists & Turns was named FACT Magazine’s best album of the year, while his collaborations with Novelist, ‘Take Time’ and ‘1 Sec’ (released on legendary label XL Recordings), mark two of the biggest anthems from grime's recent revival, and topped end of year charts from Resident Advisor, Mixmag, FACT, Dummy, Noisey and more. Recently Mumdance has also launched Different Circles, his record label with Logos that specialises in ‘weightless’ - an already-influential combination of grime, techno, ambient music, sound design and more, and collaborated with artists such as Micachu, Pinch, AJ Tracey and Nozinja. For this performance Mumdance will present a new set of modular synth workouts.
GUTTERSNIPE are a Leeds drums/guitar duo who dive straight into a cauldron of hellish improv-skronk, paint-stripping abstract noise and nightmarishly deconstructed sonic catharsis – imagine the esoteric mayhem of Angel Blood combined with the venue-destroying psychic power of early Boredoms and Naked City, and you ain’t even close. Comprising the duo of Xylocopa Violacea and Bdallophytum, if Guttersnipe don’t blow away your cobwebs, nothing will.

MARY OCHER was born Mariya Ocheretianskaya in Moscow in 1986, she moved to Israel with her family at age four, then to Berlin at 20. In 2011 she caught the attention of the inimitable King Khan at a karaoke bar (he also lives in Berlin), and she recorded what's still her most recent full-length of new material, 2013's Eden, at his Moon Studios. He's not her only famous fan either: Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs contributed a quote to Ocher's press kit. "Mary Ocher gives me the chills," she says. "She frightens me with her feral soul. Her sound is of a true outsider artist, immaculately self-possessed". Her DIY roots and anything-goes aesthetic notwithstanding, Ocher is obviously too well-connected to qualify as an outsider. Ocher's songs are a diverse bunch ranging from ghostly noise, sad but jaunty piano ballads, frisky strumming, echoing ersatz funk to chintzy drum machine workouts with vacuum-cleaner synth. Ocher herself seems to have as many faces as a vaudeville performer: her multifarious singing leaps without warning from unhinged keening to warped drawling or from wobbly muttering to blustery declaiming. Forthcoming album, 'The West Against The People' has been produced with Faust's Hans Joachim Irmler and also features tracks with Ocher's drummers (duo Your Government) as well as collaborations with avant-garde legends Die Todliche Doris, Felix Kubin and Julia Kent of Rasputina/Antony and The Johnsons. It's out March 10 on krautrock label Klangbad.
BAMBOO is the sublime project from Nick Carlisle (of Peepholes, Don't Argue) and Rachel Horwood (of Trash Kit, Halo Halo). Their music is vivid and deeply poignant, locking into a magnetic attraction between Rachel's flawlessly resonant folk cadence and Nick's pristine synth pop production. Bamboo’s second studio album, The Dragon Flies Away, is due 26th May on Upset The Rhythm on LP, CD and digitally. Initially released last winter on a limited run of 50 cassettes with an accompanying zine designed by Horwood, The Dragon Flies Away tells a story loosely associated with the Hannya demon mask of Noh theatre plays such as Dojoji, and reflects the range of emotion the Hannya mask is capable of displaying: obsession, jealousy, sorrow and rage. ‘The Dragon Flies Away’ presents its story in two acts and is now presented newly re-mastered with a gatefold sleeve and lyric / artwork sheet. Horwood’s evocative paintings are given centre stage with the packaging, allowing the album's story to grow beyond sound, making the journey all the more immersive.
MOONBOW is the sonic brainchild of London multimedia artist Eleanor Hardwick. Growing up in the countryside on the peripheries of one of the UK’s many forgotten commuter towns, she channels themes of manmade dystopias’ invasion on natural spheres into her audio and visual artistic output. Such outputs served as a refuge from growing up in a place where not much happened and not many people connected with her - whilst cyberspace became both a platform for connecting with other lost souls, and a window into a world that she witnessed elsewhere was slowly politically and environmentally decaying. i-D described her songs as “taking influence from William Orbit-era Madonna guitar and Kate Bush vocals, brought right up to date with layers upon layers of synths and glitchy samples”.

Pega Monstro announce new album! First listen, plus artwork and tracklisting!
























Fantastic news! Portuguese dream punk sisters Pega Monstro have a brand new album entitled 'Casa de Cima' planned for release on June 2nd. You can hear the immense 'Partir a Loica' taken from the album below. Loud & Quiet just premiered the track with Maria from the band adding:

It’s a Portuguese expression meaning to shake things up, to take a fiery U-turn on a path that has been misconceived by those in power for instance. On this song this meaning is explicit and on the record articulated in other ways – voice melodies and its references, song composition and the nakedness of the productions approach – an overall attempt to punk shit up and still sing what beauty means to us.

'Casa de Cima' by Pega Monstro will be released on LP, CD and digitally through Upset The Rhythm & Cafetra Records and is available to pre-order now!



Here's the tracklisting too!

Artist: Pega Monstro
Title: Casa De Cima

Catalogue Number:  UTR094
Running Time:  33 mins
Release Date:  Friday 2 June

Wolf Eyes, Mumdance & Guttersnipe playing London next Friday!



Afternoon all!
Just a quick reminder that there’s one week to go until our Wolf Eyes extravaganza at ExFed in Manor House. Celebrating the release of the band’s brand new album entitled Undertow we’re hosting a concert from the USA's longest-running homemade, primitive, electronic, poetry & radical vibes trio.
Supporting Wolf Eyes with their own live performances will be Mumdance offering up something analogue and intriguing and Guttersnipe who never fail to flail away on drums and guitar. After the show we’re very pleased to have a host of brilliant DJs booked to take the party into the smaller, weirder hours. Read on for all the particulars along with our newly listed event for Nap Eyes at the end of August, thank you…

Nap Eyes return to London this August!


Nap Eyes will be coming back to London this August, exciting news!

Upset The Rhythm presents…

NAP EYES
Thursday 31 August
Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, 44 Pollard Row, Bethnal Green, E2 6NB

NAP EYES hail from Nova Scotia and make crooked, literate guitar pop refracted through the gray Halifax rain. Recorded live to tape with no overdubs, their songs are equal parts shambling and sophisticated, with one eye on the dirt and one trained on the starry firmament, inhabiting a skewed world where odes to NASA and the Earth's magnetic field coexist easily with lyrics about insomnia and drinking too much. In the world of Nap Eyes, workaday details punctuate (and puncture) cosmic concerns, as songwriter, singer, and rhythm guitarist Nigel Chapman wrestles with air and angels, struggling (and often failing) to reconcile the Romantic rifts, both real and imagined, that define our lives: between chaos and order; solipsism and fellowship; the anxiety of social (dis)orders both big and small; and the various intersections and oppositions of religion, art, and science. It's the sound of being young and alive in the city, a tenuous and impermanent counterpoise of recklessness and anxiety, archness and earnestness. Following the reissue of their 2014 debut 'Whine of the Mystic' on Paradise of Bachelors, Nap Eyes released an album of all-new material entitled 'Thought Rock Fish Scale' last year, following that up with two incredible London shows!

New Bamboo album details, plus upcoming Wolf Eyes London show outlined!

Morning there!
This week we’re very pleased to announce that our pre-order link is now live for our upcoming new album by Bamboo. The extraordinary album is entitled The Dragon Flies Away and weaves Japanese/Korean folkloric myths into the personal fabric of being. Released on May 26th, the album is available to order on transparent blue vinyl and digipak CD as of now!
Bamboo is the ongoing project from Nick Carlisle (of Peepholes) and Rachel Horwood (of Trash Kit, Halo Halo). Vivid and deeply poignant, Bamboo's music locks into a magnetic attraction between Horwood's flawlessly resonant folk cadence and Carlisle's pristine synth production. Initially released last winter on a limited run of 50 cassettes with an accompanying zine designed by Horwood, The Dragon Flies Away tells a story loosely associated with the Hannya demon mask of Noh theatre plays such as Dojoji, and reflects the range of emotion the Hannya mask is capable of displaying: obsession, jealousy, sorrow and rage. The Dragon Flies Away presents its story in two acts and is now presented newly re-mastered with a gatefold sleeve and lyric / artwork sheet. Horwood’s evocative paintings are given centre stage with the packaging, allowing the album's story to grow beyond sound, making the journey all the more immersive.
Have a listen to ‘Always Running’, living up to its name with its propulsive beat and plucked rhythm, building to a chase for Rachel’s dramatic vocal turn.
 
Sticking with records, yesterday Clash Magazine premiered a new track from our upcoming debut album from Feature. The song is called ‘Reeling’ and can be heard here, enjoy!
Banishing Ritual will be released on LP through Upset The Rhythm on April 7th.
"It's another understated gem from Feature, with the three-piece yet again eschewing grand statements to get on with the much more profound business of simply being an excellent band."
 
Also, Xiu Xiu's 'Wondering' video has just surfaced for baby-powder infused air on Paper Magazine. RIYL stuffed unicorns, molten wax, candy cigarettes and reading in bed.
'Wondering' is taken from Xiu Xiu's brand new album 'Forget', out now on Upset The Rhythm.
 
In terms of live shows, we’d like to thank you for coming out to see Milky Wimpshake last week, was great to see you there, never thought I’d hear their first album live in full. Our next show is Wolf Eyes in two weeks time, with Mumdance and Guttersnipe, plus a plethora of esteemed record spinners. It doesn’t get any better than that, ExFed Warehouse is our venue of choice and you can find full details below.
Talking of shows, in the last few days we have confirmed concerts over the summer for TERRY and a rare triple headline mind warp of a show from Ducktails, James Ferraro and Spencer Clark. Listings for both of those can be found amongst our show programme that concludes this swift dispatch, along with ticket links etc. Read on for everything and more…
