A night of high-end acoustic guitar thrill and more cerebral lush tones, bent and unimaginable sound worlds of static, flows and analog synth modules from the 4 artists making up this killer bill.
Bill Orcutt: etch the name into your subconscious. The man vanished from the seminally sick Miami trio Harry Pussy only to appear again to astound with limited LPs. Bill lets loose on acoustic guitar with ridiculous chops, his style deeply philosophical, free and joyously spewwy. A splatter/flicker montage of guitar sounds and vocalisations that make your hairs bristle and blood thin. SERIOUSLY Qu cant wait.
Cian Nugent has that tender touch. A young guitar player from Dublin who draws on a rich mix, suburban/coastal blues, traditional musics, late 1960s & ’70s singer-songwriters, jazz ambitions, 20th century composition and the Takoma school into a deeply personal style.
Jessica Rylan runs Flower Electronics, producing her own line in compact analog synth modules and noise flingers of various models, and as Jessica Rylan and also as Can’t, she has produced a string of often very personal and liberated/liberating releases that can hurtle from caustic sound projectiles to blissful, sometimes childlike a cappella experiments and back. Again Qu has been DYING to see her live.
Newcastle’s Posset flesh out collections of miniature collages, dictaphone rants and blends noise and non-music components into captivating oddball songs. However odd they may sound, there’s an easiness and an everyday feel to these folks.
Part of the touring end to Tusk Festival.
