Ceiling Demons, Hannah Slavin & Unofficial - M.I

jackofthearts Presents:

Ceiling Demons
Ceiling Demons are an alternative art-rap band from rural northern England. Born out of bereavement and taking influence from artists such as The Streets, Joy Division, Tricky and Serengeti. Combining poetic wordplay from front men and twin brothers; Psy Ceiling and Dan Demon over cinematic instrumentals, Ceiling Demons aim to strike your heartstrings with their intense and chaotic performances touching on themes of love and loss. Art over entertainment, delivered with a punk philosophy. The Demons are strong advocates of addressing mental health issues in their art and have worked extensively with suicide prevention charities such as CALM to raise awareness and funds for a cause close to their hearts. They’ve also supported the likes of Young Fathers, Sleaford Mods and Busdriver among other favourites and are championed by Louder Than War and NARC Magazine in the UK for their passionate live shows. Their critically acclaimed album Nil has been released by two independent record labels since it first emerged in late 2017 with Win Big Records initially putting out the album on CD and cassette formats before DIY record label; Butterfly Effect re-issued the album as a beautiful limited vinyl in 2018 with profits going towards mental health charity - Men Tell Health.

They start 2019 by returning to their second home of Leeds, along with a special live art show/exhibit by the elusive Art Demon - the long-term artwork collaborator of the band and former Leeds inhabitant Tim Coomber aka We-advance

Graces + special guests

Violet Gang presents Graces first headline tour:

Based on an endearment for neon teen cinema and a love of youthful exuberance, Graces combine ambient soundscapes, distorted guitars and recognisable pop sensibilities. The band spent their formative years in the rural Lake District before relocating to South Yorkshire two years ago. 

Breaking out of the four walls of their post-industrial rehearsal space in Sheffield, the band have toured their live show around the country, playing packed-out venues in Sheffield, London, Manchester and almost everywhere in between. The melancholy prowess of the band embraces the volatility of growing up, finds the dirt and celebrates it.

Whilst sharing stages with Feeder, The Amazons, Black Honey, Fickle Friends and King No-One, the band has worked with producer Phil Gornell (Bring Me The Horizon, All Time Low, 5SOS) and were lauded by the mainstream music press. After a busy festival season which included performances at Tramlines, Kendal Calling and Y Not Festival, a new EP is set for release in 2019 with the band announcing their biggest ever headline shows.

https://leahsenior.bandcamp.com/album/leah-senior-summers-on-the-ground



Leah Senior silences audiences with her other-worldly presence and unique lyricism. Her breakthrough album Pretty Faces twirls gently in its own form of psych-folk revival. The Melbourne-based folk artist creates fragile but effortlessly nimble melodies that demonstrate a clarity of thought and studied discipline beyond her years. Her songs evoke the familiar and the peculiar, the poetic and the plain.

Pretty Faces sat proudly on the Flightless Records roster of 2017 and her distinctive voice also featured on King Gizzard's apocalyptic album Murder of The Universe, as the omnipresent female narrator. 

"Leah Senior is an amazing folk singer, very, very talented, and nothing like King Gizz's music at all. her songs equally terrifying, joyous, sad and exciting. We get chills watching her perform" - King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard.

The album Pretty Faces is an exploration of personal liberation acquired through loss and the breaking of expectations on oneself. The songs embody a sense of outsider freedom epitomised in the last track Loser “You’re a loser like me, pay the price for feeling free”. 

A chance late night encounter with King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard saw Leah Senior joining their independent label Flightless to release her first album Summer’s On The Ground.

Leah Senior's first album "Summer’s On The Ground" reveals a haunting and intimate storyteller, Rolling Stone giving the album four stars, saying “this is insular music, akin to eavesdropping on someone else’s prettily conveyed thoughts”. The album was also nominated for the Australian Music Prize as well as Best Folk and Roots Album for the Age Victoria Music Awards.. 

A folk island in a sea of psychedelia has proven to be a good fit for Senior. She joined the Flightless crew for the Gizzfest Tour 2017. Pretty Faces was recorded and produced with Gizzard’s own Joey Walker and features Michael Cavanagh on drums.

Leah Senior has performed extensively throughout Australia playing at major festivals including Golden Plains, Queenscliff Music Festival, Bigsound, Waverock, and Fairgrounds. 

Her captivating live performances have seen her supporting international artists including Calexico, Jessica Pratt, Moses Sumney, Julianna Barwick and more. When playing live, Leah is joined by her sister and her partner, creating a tapestry of ethereal harmonies and jangley 60s guitar sounds. 

Leah Senior is currently recording her third album and is set to release new music late 2018.

"They're strange people from Liverpool. I don't wanna say they're dirty, they look a little weird, but they rock like crazy" - Iggy Pop, 2018.

Deemed an 'unavoidably loud force for good' by Clash, Queen Zee burst forth from Merseyside in 2016. Releasing their debut single "Sissy Fists" in May 2017, the band gained popularity for their dangerous and explosive live show, tounge-in-cheek humor and DIY approach. Queen Zee's blend of garage punk chaos and queer glam has lead the band to be called "The Rocky Horror Picture Show on steroids" by BBC Radio 1's Phil Taggart. In 2018 the band shared a live session from the famous BBC Maida Vale studios on Huw Stephens Radio One new music show. The session made BBC history as the first ever all female crew on a Maida Vale recording. Queen Zee have appeared alongside Peaches, The Kills, Beth Ditto, Dream Wife, HMLTD & more

15.02.2019 | £5.00 ADVANDCE (+stbf) | 19:30 Doors

https://ohmmemusic.com
https://www.facebook.com/ohmmemusic/

-

Already celebrated as the “Heart of Chicago’s Music Community” (Noisey) by both fans and tastemakers alike, OHMME (aka the duo of Sima Cunningham and Macie Stewart) amalgamate the aggressive and the meditative on their bold debut full-length album, Parts.

Still in their 20s, Stewart and Cunningham are both classically trained musicians and are established players within the Chicago music scene. They are especially involved in performing and working for venues within the local experimental music scene. They’re constant collaborators and have recorded and toured with homegrown acts as varied as Tweedy, Whitney, Chance The Rapper and Twin Peaks.

Cunningham and Stewart are multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriters with a penchant for two instruments in particular. "The band started because we knew we could sing well together and we wanted to make some noise with the guitar,” says Cunningham. Stewart elaborates, “Sima and I are both trained classical pianists and we know many of the sonic spaces keyboards have to offer. Since we were interested in experimenting and creating something different from what we had both done in the past, we chose guitar as our outlet for this band. We wanted to create both new and uncomfortable parameters for ourselves to force us into a different creative space.” These guitar-heavy experiments are sometimes earthy and resounding, at other times shimmering and buzzing—swirling around the duo's expertly crafted vocals while creating a chaotic bed of harmony. Cunningham's smoky alto complements Stewart's higher-register croon, all underpinned by the restrained yet highly inventive polyrhythmic percussion of drummer Matt Carroll. Think Amber Coffman and Angel Deradoorian-era Dirty Projectors.

Enlisting fellow Chicago cohorts Doug McCombs (Tortoise), Ken Vandermark and cellist Tomeka Reid, OHMME recorded and self-produced Parts from Cunningham’s Logan Square home studio, Fox Hall. With Parts, OHMME "wanted to capture a moment in time instead of something perfect.”

The results are thrilling: from the pure pop opening track “Icon” to the
candied sludge of "Peach" to the skipping rhythms of "Parts" and the dusky closer "Walk Me," Parts draws from influences as diverse as Kate Bush and Brian Eno's Here Come the Warm Jets to jazz and improvisational music, making for an electric debut listening experience.

This range from sweetly shiny 2-minute hypnotic bangers to woozy and sprawling 7-minute long tracks boasting moodily atmospheric wafting guitars and piercing feedback shows a band colliding thoughtfulness and creative ingenuity to produce music as unique as it is earworm- worthy. With Parts, OHMME manage to organically marry a breadth of divergent styles into an album that is cohesive, daring, and distinctly their own.

The band have already been making big strides in their short existence. Having followed up their Theo Verney produced debut 'Desert' with the single 'Pony', Strange Cages then went on to release their head-spinning EP ‘The Cracks’ last year, quickly gaining support from the likes of Clash Magazine, NME, Q Magazine, The 405 and The Line of Best Fit, whilst tearing up stages in support of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Night Beats, and Wand.

Now the 4-piece return with their best work yet, six expansive tracks that make up their Silver Queen EP. Combining elements of krautrock and post-punk with paranoid, schizophrenic vocals, Brighton has unearthed another gem in a city producing some of the most exciting acts in the UK right now.

Stefanie, Stijn and Peter teamed up to start Brutus in 2013. They all met while playing in different bands from the same region of Leuven (Belgium). In merging their different ideas and musical tastes they have formed a strong union, both musically and personally.Drummer vocalist Stefanie mixes black-metal blast beats with math-rock flourishes whilst belting out the most impassioned vocals, shifting from deceptively melodic to out-right larynx-punishing in the blink of an eye. Guitarist Stijn Vanhoegaerden takes ethereal post-rock tones to hardcore punk levels of speed and energy aside Peter Mulders powerful sub-frequency shifts. It’s the way in which the band mixes post-rock construction, metal dynamics with hardcore energy and prog rock all the while lacing it with pure pop melodies that make Brutus’ sound so unique and all their own. Brutus’ debut album BURST (2017) was released by Hassle Records in UK and Europe, and then later by Sargent House for USA and the rest of the World. In 2017-2018 they have toured extensively all over Europe, playing many large festivals as well as direct support to Russian Circles, Thrice and Chelsea Wolfe on their European tours.With a new album slated for release in early 2019, they are ready for more. Trouble comes in threes, so does Brutus.

The Burning Hell

Hee Haw Sessions & Please Please You presents
The Burning Hell
The Hyde Park Book Club, Leeds
Sunday 2nd December, 7.30pm. £9adv/£11otd

The Burning Hell is the alter-ego of Canadian songwriter Mathias Kom, and the band has been on the road in one form or another since 2007, playing everywhere from the chaos of Glastonbury to the loneliness of the Arctic Circle, popping up in bars, festival tents, living rooms, abandoned bunkers, and a mental asylum in rural France along the way. Musically, the lineup and sound of the Burning Hell has been ever-changing, running the gamut from introspective folk to hyperactive rock and roll. This means both that no two Burning Hell records sound alike, and that the band can adapt to its surroundings like a karma of anthropomorphic chameleons, taking the audience on a supermarket-cart ride through hooky, upbeat pop songs, dark ballads about pet euthanasia, and anthems for barbarians, economic conferences, and love.

‘Kom’s writing is a breath of fresh air, and I can think of few songwriters I’d rather spend the apocalypse with…’
Folk Radio UK

‘The wordy songsmith behind Canadian quintet The Burning Hell, Mathias Kom has a dry wit and sharp eye that elevate indie-rock tunes into offbeat storytelling treats.’
Uncut Magazine

‘Those who love The Burning Hell really love them, and can't wait to share their respect for creative driving force Mathias Kom's hyper-literate, warm, and witty stories...Kom’s rapid fire lyrics contain deep emotional depth and wide narrative breadth while keeping a common touch.’
The Digital Fix

"Sparkling shoegaze-pop with a hop and a skip" 
*DIY*

“A mesmerizing combination that warps time and will have you reaching to hit replay instantly” 
*Pigeons & Planes*

Blending hazy shoegaze with gossamer synth-pop, Wyldest have been creating their own self-sufficient story since they appeared with early demos in 2015, immediately picking-up support from The Telegraph, DIY, The Line Of Best Fit and NME, comparisons with the likes of Warpaint and Grimes to Blonde Redhead and Chairlift and winning a slot at Green Man Festival. 

From writing and recording in their Greenwich studio, to designing their own artwork and producing videos, the London trio - fronted by songwriter and producer Zoe Mead, with Mariin Kallikorm on bass and guitar and drums from Jack Gooderham - do things their own way, as they explained in interviews with The Independent and Clash, the latter tipping the band with a Next Wave feature. 

Their 2017 Hitchhiker EP served as a real statement of intent from the incredibly creative outfit, enjoying glowing reviews from the likes of EARMILK and Indie Shuffle and Radio 1 play from long-time supporter Huw Stephens and 6 Music, leading to further live dates, including packed-out hometown shows, a House Of Vans headline, support slots with the likes of Martha Ffion and HalfNoise and a triumphant string of showcases at 2018’s SXSW and The Great Escape festivals. 

The band’s debut album is finished, with single 1 and shows across the UK kicking off in October 2018.

Mr Ben & the Bens 'Happy Shopper' Tour

Following the amazing success of the sell-out Bingo Records Split EP, Lancaster polymath Ben Hall, AKA Mr Ben & the Bens is back with four new songs and a UK tour.

Since the release of 'The Bluest Blues' and 'My Museum' on that record, Mr Ben has toured the UK with DIY legends The Lovely Eggs, played in session twice for Marc Riley on BBC Radio 6 Music, been on air all over the place, bought a new hat, eaten at least 17 pieces of toast and had a bath.

After all that, it was time to record some new stuff. Here's The Happy Shopper EP, out on Bingo Records.

For more information email bingorecs@gmail.com

Marc Riley, BBC 6 Music (re: The Bluest Blues): "This is a great tune, I like it an awful lot. One of my tracks of the year." “ Perfect Pop”

Piccadilly Records, Manchester: “It's an intoxicating combination of excellently written melodies and perfectly fitting vocal strafes.”

23/11/18 | £7.00 ADV (+stbf) | 19:30 doors

Saintseneca’s Zac Little has been thinking a lot about memory. Not necessarily his memories, though they creep in often, too. Rather, he mulls over the idea of memory itself: its resilience, its haziness, how it slips away as we try to hang on, the way it resurfaces despite our best efforts to forget.

Memory is the common thread running throughout the Columbus folk-punk band’s fourth album, Pillar of Na, arriving in late summer via ANTI-Records. Following 2015's critically lauded Such Things, the new album’s name is rooted in remembrance, referencing the Genesis story of Lot’s wife who looks back at a burning Sodom after God instructs her not to. She looks back, and God turns her into a pillar of salt. “Na,” meanwhile, is the chemical symbol for sodium. "Nah" is a passive refusal and the universal song word. It means nothing and stands for nothing. It is "as it is."

Like Lot's wife, Little cannot help but revisit where—and how—he grew up. Raised in church in southeastern Appalachian Ohio, he took up preaching when he was still a teenager, sometimes in small country settings and other times to congregations of thousands. But these days he's more interested in listening. And questioning. 

Musically, Pillar of Na is Saintseneca’s most ambitious album to date, with Little aiming to incorporate genre elements he’d rarely heard in folk. “I wanted to use the idiom of folk-rock, or whatever you want to call it, and to try to do something that had never been done before," Little explains. "To reach way back, echoing ancient folk melodies, tie that into punk rock, and then push it into the future. I told Mike Mogis I wanted Violent Femmes meets the new Blade Runner soundtrack. I'm looking for the intersection between Kendrick Lamar and The Fairport Convention.”

“You're always going to be situated in the folk legacy,” Little continues, acknowledging his past recordings, which include three albums (the aforementioned Such Things, 2014's Dark Arc, 2011's Last) and three EPs (2016's The Mallwalker, 2010's Grey Flag, and 2009's self-titled). “But let’s move forward. I'm not trying to make the lost Velvet Underground B-side. I want to find something that has never been heard before, or at least go down trying."

Intercourse

Daytime: 
For many of us, the city is the space we find most of our interactions taking place, as well as where we pursue our goals, find frustrations, and the space which we inhabit together. Join us for a day of discussion with some of the most interesting thinkers & practitioners from across the city. 

We'll be discussing matters such as what does the spatial distribution of the city tell us about the city's attitude towards creativity? How does the city's theatre & film culture relate to its politics? How liveable is the city? How do we navigate collective decision making in the city? Alongside these questions we'll hear from some of the city's researchers, via the outward looking PubhD Leeds. It has been said that the city's academic quarters can be cut off from the city itself, PubHD aims to bridge some of that gap by bringing research into an informal setting.

Evening: £3 adv £5 otd (FREE with a donation for PAFRAS)

Our Perception of Today - Featuring The Bo's, Lara Jones and Muriel & Blazquez:

Five creatives play with their perceptions of the city and how their daily life becomes tangled around it. Using dance, spoken word, visual art and poetry, this evening will immerse the audience into a web of narratives. The artists involved will be The Bos, Lara Jones and Muriel & Blazquez who will be launching their first single. The event will also include the first ever screening of Muriel & Blazquez's music video to accompany the new single. In the single you meet a character who at first feels alone and alien to their body but eventually finds solace when they let the city's nightlife absorb them and protect them from their sobering day.

Dan Coulthurst Trio at HPJC

Dan Coulthurst -Trumpet
Sam Jackson - Double Bass
Luke D'Aulerio - Drums

The trio explore both the traditional and more contemporary sides of jazz. The absence of a chordal instrument allows the band to approach repertoire with more freedom, which also gives them the opportunity to play more texturally and openly. The band take influence from Avishai Cohens 'Triveni', and strive to achieve the same level of intensity and musicality as the group

Tally Ho! Presents Virginia Wing + Guests

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3-vemGqdOM

'Ecstatic Arrow' borrows from the heterogeneous terrain of The Flying Lizard’s Fourth Wall, the exuberant technology assisted pop of Yellow Magic Orchestra and the playful sophistication of Lizzy Mercier Descloux’s Press Colour, arriving at the evergreen intersection of pop music and conceptual art.

The resolute opener of Be Released and album centre point The Female Genius pair resonant Fourth World instrumentation with sonorous, loping drum patterns. Elsewhere, the sentimental march of single The Second Shift plays out like an after-hours ballad re-imagined by Wally Badarou and For Every Window There’s a Curtain is coloured by the blue-lit haze of an Eventide warped tenor saxophone.

Three albums in, the voice of Alice Merida Richards is more compelling and expressive than ever. The glacial deadpan of previous records has given way to a more candid, self-possessed delivery, showing an appreciation for the humour and tragedy innate in the downtown Arcadia of Laurie Anderson, Robert Ashley or even Lynn Goldsmith’s Will Powers.

It’s with this voice that Richards outlines a simple ideality that fortifies the entirety of Ecstatic Arrow – inequality pervades, destructive behaviours are inherited and each subsequent generation has to reconcile the debts of its precursor – yet a space exists within ourselves and each other that houses a fact we must be reminded of – we have the ability to choose. Even in moments of frustration; the ascerbic eye-roll toward male entitlement, Glorious Idea or the world-weary Eight Hours Don’t Make a Day, there persists a joy for living that refuses to be confined.

A depiction of a group finally at ease with itself, Ecstatic Arrow is a tribute to the internal momentum that quietly guides us toward our destination.
