Welcome to our weekly round-up of shows happening in the grand concert halls, dimly lit basements, airy cafe’s and grimy sweatboxes across the UK and Ireland. All acts featured come with the Best Fit ‘Seal Of Approval’ so you can be assured that your hard earned cash will be well spent. To tempt your wallets this week we’ve gathered dates from the likes of Mount Kimbie, Faye and Dirty Projectors.
Mount Kimbie @ QEH, London 13/10
Post dub-step duo Dominic Maker and Kai Campos are set to play their first live UK show in quite some time as part of Ether Festival. Expect minimal, hypnotic beats and perhaps some new material from their forthcoming sophomore record. They’ll be collaborating with installation and light artists Caleb Madden and Bartosz Dylweski for the show so we reckon this will be pretty special.
Tamaryn @ Soup Kitchen, Manchester 14/10
The follow up to 2010′s The Waves, Tamaryn’s new Mexican Summer released record Tender New Signs fuses blissful sonics and sultry vocals for the perfect daydreamy haze.
Dirty Projectors @ The Arches, Glasgow 15/10
On the heels of their recent critically acclaimed, most accessible album Swing Lo Magellan, Brooklyn six-piece Dirty Projectors are heading our way and will undoubtedly be treating fans to numbers from their forthcoming EP About To Die.
Tickets are available now. RSVP via Facebook. Check out more dates here.
Fun Adults @ Nation of Shopkeepers, Leeds 15/10
Celebrating the release of their Tough Love debut single, Fun Adults will be bringing their gentle sounds, clattering beats and smooth vocal harmonies to Leeds.
Faye, Cut Ribbons & Among Brothers @ The Shacklewell, London 17/10
Kissability vs. The Line of Best Fit: Soaring, Scandivian pop; rumbling indie guitars; dreamy, intricate and dramatic instrumentals. What more could you want from a Wednesday night?!
Liars @ Rainbow Warehouse, Birmingham 18/10
Emerging from New York’s post-punk dance scene Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill and Julian Gross really don’t sound like anything else, bringing in elements from recognisable cannons but twisting them into their own unique, at least on WIXIW, electronic creations.
Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds & A Winged Victory For The Sullen @ Hackney Empire, London 18/10
Classical music meets the contemporary world as Bird On The Wire, Drowned In Sound, Clash Magazine and Classical Music Magazine present an evening of music in celebration of Erased Tapes‘ fifth birthday, with performances from Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds, A Winged Victory For The Sullen Chamber Orchestra and special guest Anne Müller.
Sold Out. RSVP via Facebook. Check out more dates here.
