Matthew Bourne - for Basil Kirchin
Published 26 October, 2017 by DM

Earlier this year Matthew Bourne took his trusty Lintronics Advanced Memorymoog and Roland RE-201 Space Echo to Hull to help pay tribute to the life and music of Basil Kirchin. Sharing the grand Hull City Hall stage with the BBC Concert Orchestra, St. Etienne’s Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs, he was performing as part of a bill curated by Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory for the Hull City of Culture program. Bourne performed a specially written piece entitled ‘Twenty-Seven Areas of Contention’ and also ‘Sam’ from his moogmemory album. Read what Bourne has to say about the process and listen/download a recording from that evening now. For free. No excuses. | Twitter | Facebook | Live Dates |

Snapped Ankles - Moth Club + Radio X session

After taking their Epping rave equipment on tour around the country earlier this month, Snapped Ankles have returned to the forest. Nottingham, Margate, Leeds, Manchester, London and Brighton can start to get back to some sense of normality. But wait! More shows…

The woodwose have just announced a show at the Moth Club in Hackney on January 24th. Get your tickets now.

Before then, they will be taking in the sights of Colchester, Ghent and LiƩge, and playing the prestigious Trans Musicales Festival in Rennes.

In the meantime keep yourself occupied with their album Come Play The Trees, and this Radio X session from Wednesday. | Twitter | Facebook | Instagram | Live Dates |

Snapped Ankles - Come Play The Trees out today
Published 29 September, 2017 by DM

Give thanks to your favourite tree spirit, for Snapped Ankles have borne fruit. Indeed this harvest is not just restricted to their perfectly ripened debut album Come Play The Trees, but also a feast of videos for hungry eyes.

The video for 'Come Play The Trees' takes the form of a forest survival tutorial. The time to take to the wild is very nearly upon us, so do yourself a favour and watch it before you get distracted elsewhere.

Here is the start of a video series entitled Tuning Trees, in which the woodwose ably demonstrate the sound of the trees of the world. You should probably subscribe to their YouTube channel in order to stay informed and entertained.

Come Play The Trees is available on LP+CD/CD/digital on your platform of choice.

The wildmen are on tour. Go and see them. | Twitter | Facebook | Instagram | Live Dates |

Matthew Bourne + Nightports live debut
Published 26 September, 2017 by DM

Matthew Bourne + Nightports live debut

In collaboration with production duo Nightports, Matthew Bourne is to premiere a new project at Middleton Hall in Hull on October 12th as part of the Hull City Of Culture program.

Nightports is based on a simple but unbreakable rule of restriction: only sounds produced by the featured musician can be used. Nothing else. But these sounds can be transformed, distorted, translated, reworked, processed and reprocessed, stretched, cut, ordered and reordered without limitation. The fruits of their meticulous labour with Bourne will be released as an album by The Leaf Label early next year, with further collaborations to follow.

To recreate their studio work, the live show will feature three pianos and live manipulations. This will be your first chance to hear it anywhere. Get your tickets here. | Twitter | Facebook | Live Dates | | Twitter | Facebook
