To tempt your wallets this week we’ve gathered dates from the likes of Nicolas Jaar, Echo Lake and Swim Deep.
Nicolas Jaar @ The Warehouse Project, Manchester 29/09
Taking some time out from remixes and collaborating with famous kids, our favourite American via Chile producer is set to bring his innovative, left field sonic collage to Manchester tonight for a live show in and along side Maya Jane Coles, Julio Bashmore, Four Tet (DJ) and Joy Orbison.
Echo Lake @ The Lexington, London 01/10
After the tragic loss of drummer Pete Hayes, Echo Lake are ready to return to the live circuit to treat fans to the woozy dream pop featured on their stunning debut album Wild Peace.
Ray Davies @ The Sage, Gateshead 02/10
The Kinks‘ legendary frontman continues to pay homage to the classics whilst cautiously airing newer material and is guaranteed to be nothing short of spectacular.
Azealia Banks @ O2 Academy, Liverpool 02/10
The ’212′, rap “quitting”, album delaying star is finally set to tour the UK and we can’t wait to see what she has got.
Shonen Knife @ The Glee Club, Nottingham 03/10
The Osaka all-female three-piece have been peddling their punk infused, 60s pop inspired wares since 1981 and well, their infectious, simple guitar driven melodies have held on to their vitality pretty tightly.
Swim Deep @ The Sebright Arms, London 04/10
Birmingham really is just a one stop shop for incredible new bands at the moment. We’re not quite sure what they’re putting in the water up there but we’re pretty sure whatever it is was distilled in the 90s.
Wintersleep @ Nice N Sleazy, Glasgow 04/10
The Nova Scotian indie veterans’ recent full length album Hello Hum is a mournful, optimistic and stirring collection of tracks that will undoubtedly result in held breaths and heaving sighs from those lucky enough to experience it live.
