    Lowlakes
    Plus Special Guest

    Lowlakes
    Intimate, haunting, and swirling with atmospherics, Lowlakes’ music has a sense of the cinematic. Their marriage of shoegaze, alternative and dream-pop is dark with imagery of midnight, wintry landscapes- punctuated by bone-chilling waves of frontman Tom Snowdon’s voice.

    Originally hailing from Alice Springs in the central Australian desert, childhood friends Snowdon, Bill Guerin and Jack Talbot formed Lowlakes with Brent Monaghan in 2011 after relocating to Melbourne.

    Lowlakes made waves with the release of their 2012 eponymous EP, performing at the prestigious CMJ Music Festival in New York in October 2012, and tours of Europe in May and October 2013.

    Lowlakes’ debut album was released in February 2014. They are currently touring in support of it.

    On the last Friday of each month, we’ll be having a new party at our pub The Old Blue Last, with DJs, live bands and a screening of our latest VICE documentary. Across all three floors, it’ll be like a big old house party, only with a free bar tab for first come first served.

    Kicking off on Friday 26th September, we’ve got a line up including Sway Clarke II, Freddie Dickson and Kaleida, followed by the Noisey DJs ’till the early hours downstairs.

    We’ll also be premiering our latest VICE doc Big Night Out Ibiza on the top floor of the pub from 6.30pm, so come and say hello. Entry is FREE, so there’s really no excuse.

    SWAY CLARKE II

    “His combination of storytelling and hooks has earned comparisons to the hitmaking likes of Lorde and Frank Ocean, but a streak of naughty humor, often at the singer’s own expense, is uniquely his own” – New York Times

    “Next in line of male crooners who exist outside of the middle, bringing both the abstract and the tangible to the surface” – Life + Times

    “It’s that sweet spot between alt-R&B and pure pop” – Pigeons and Planes

    Secret Garden could be Ben Folds trying to write a Motown hit at the height of Britpop” – The Guardian

    “He’s not the kind of guy you’d say no to, even if you maybe should” –  The Line Of Best Fit

    FREDDIE DICKSON
    Though young, Freddie Dickson seems to have arrived with a mature, distinctive voice.

    Emerging in the first faltering weeks of 2014, the singer placed a handful of tracks alone. Darkly meditative pop music, there’s a glamour, a sense of focus to what this young artist achieves. – Clash

    Moose Blood
    From late Summer 2012, Moose Blood have been four dudes writing songs about relationships, friends, family and coffee drinking. A distinctly British twist on a sound that harks back to the glory days of Deep Elm Records and mid 90′s emo.

    Having already played a bunch of shows with the likes of Hawthorne Heights, Broadway Calls and Gnarwolves, and a UK/European release through FITA records and Day By Day records, things are definitely moving quickly.

    Join them on the 6th October to celebrate the release of their new album.

    Facebook

    THESE GHOSTS
    In 2010, a youthful These Ghosts released their debut album, ‘You Are Not Lost, You Are Here’, before embarking on their respective university degrees. During their studies, the trio vowed to pursue their mutual love of creating Radiohead and Sigur Ros inspired guitar music together, making countless journeys between London, Reading and Leicester to begin writing their sophomore effort. The process was long and the sessions sporadic, but the prolonged period of time proved to be crucial as the band honed their sound, adopting electronic influences from the likes of The Knife, Four Tet and Mount Kimbie. This development was complimented by the arrival of Matthew Herbert, who joined Jonny Cole on production duties in early 2014. Having completed their studies and relocated from the wilds of the East Anglian countryside to South East London, the new album ‘Still The Waves’ is to be released on NX Records – a collaborative label venture between Goldsmiths College and Accidental Records on September 15th.

    Youth Club’s crisp production could have come from Phillipe Zdar’s mixing board, and could see the band mistaken for long lost brothers of Phoenix or Two Door Cinema Club; a testament to the bands sound.

The four-piece, signed to Dublin’s Any Other City label (Girl Band, Villagers), have received praise from both sides of the Atlantic for ‘Not Yet’ and its flipside ‘Cut Shorts’. From their first practice onwards Jet Setter realised how good it feels to play straight-to-the-point, fuzzy Indie-Rock, which translates organically into their live show. ‘Dippin’ Toes’ is released on October 17th, complemented with an Irish and UK tour.

    Kalle Mattson
    Recorded throughout 2012 & 2013, Kalle Mattson’s newest full-length was produced by The Wooden Sky’s Gavin Gardiner and features appearances by Juno-nominated artists The Wooden Sky, Cuff The Duke & a song co-written by Kalle & renowned singer-songwriter Jeremy Fisher. Someday, The Moon Will Be Gold fully embraces the duality of hope and death, from the summery jangle of “Pick Me Up” to the opulent & euphoric “Eyes Speak”, this is a record that takes the young 22-year old songwriter to the next level both musically & lyrically.

    “I had written about my mom in the past but never as honest as I was on all of these new songs” says Mattson. “I wanted to fully put down my own story. In a lot of ways I felt like all I had left was this record and finishing it. What I had put off for five years all came back to me in that house and I dealt with it by writing.”

    With STMWBG Kalle Mattson follows up a string of two critically acclaimed full-lengths (2009s Whisper Bee & 2011s Anchors), an EP (2012s Lives In Between), and two viral music videos for “Water Falls” (over 250,000 views) & “Thick As Thieves” (over 1,000,000 views). Anchors was mixed by Howie Beck (Feist, Jason Collett, Hayden) and saw Kalle tour in support of the album with stops at CMW, NXNE, Pop Montreal, Ottawa Bluesfest, tours with Sunparlour Players, Cuff The Duke, Jeremy Fisher and opening slots with Jim Bryson, The Rural Alberta Advantage and Blue Rodeo. The album also received a pair of Northern Ontario Music Award wins for Album of the Year (Group) & SOCAN Songwriter of the Year.
