Headlining the This Is Tmrw Christmas shindig, Dorcha were also releasing their new ISM EP – with hard press copies available for the first time. Dorcha had previously released a limited digital run at their Centrala party in mid November.
Lurking head and shoulders above the rest, if such as thing is logistically possible, was Jay Dyer – taking notes for a BREVIEW in between the occasional Winterval Shandy. To, be, continued after Christmas.
But to get something out before THE BIG DAY, and to save you too much of that troublesome reading lark, here’s some pics of all the acts on the Xmas bill from Rob Hadley. For the Full Flicker of Pics, click here or on featured links.
Now go wrap some pressies; Back to the Future’s on soon.
Happy holidays all x
Delta Autumn – supporting Dorcha @ Hare & Hounds 22.12.16
Doors open at 7:30pm. Tickets are priced at £7 (advance) and £10 (otd) with ‘all proceeds from this show will now go towards helping those affected by the Aleppo crisis.’ For direct gig info and online tickets sales, click here.
This Is Tmrw will be also throwing some DJs into the Christmas pudding, as it’s their party and they’ll play if they want to, with a ‘Special Guest’ also curiously billed to appear… Could it be Father Christmas?
No. He doesn’t exist. And how scary is a fat cosplayer, drunk on Sherry, creeping into your children’s bedroom at three in the morning..? Someone get Paul Dacre on the phone.
The obligatory Santa/Sexual Predator jokes aside; this looks like a good celebration whatever your appropriated religious predilection. Dorcha have (kind sorta) released a new EP recently, ISM, making some limited edition copies available at their Centrala party in mid November.
Being (INSERT PLAYFUL SELF DEPRECIATION) we never made it to Minerva Works and have been quietly self harming ever since. But now, dear hearts, bring out the short sleeves ‘cos Dorcha will be selling CDs at the Hare. It’s like Christmas.
Supporting Dorcha are the ever wonderful and sublime, Chartreuse. Named after mountains, monks or some really poky liquor, this Birmingham four piece are but wee nippers in the broader scheme of things – but bugger me with a salad tosser, they’re already amongst the cream of Birmingham crop. Like a chunk of 4D fell into Lou Reed’s overnight bag, got covered in Absinthe and glitter, before being sprinkled around Bobby Gillespie’s hotel room at 6am… It’s fair to say we like them. But see what you think – we rely too much on metaphors anyway.
Also supporting are Delta Autumn. Honestly, we don’t know much about this band. Except that it wasn’t always a band. But self described as ‘smashing hip hop, glitch, pop, rock, jazz and electro acoustic compositional techniques together to create a sound that sits somewhere between James Blake, Flying Lotus and Thundercat’ they sound worth a stop, look, listen. And This Is Tmrw are not often wrong.
But if you want a sneaky peak there’s a few tracks on Delta Autumn’s website for you to scroll through, including the oddly frenetic ‘Citrus Quotes’ with Juice Aleem – always a good name to see on a track listing.
