Sonic Cathedral – Monday 13th Feb
Fairewell’s second ever headline show and third gig in total following his hugely acclaimed debut album, ‘Poor, Poor Grendel’, which was released on Sonic Cathedral Recordings late last year. Fairewell is Johnny White, originally from Sheffield, now based in north London. He makes music that is both grandiose and introspective and claims to be influenced by Popol Vuh, cLOUDDEAD and The Black Heart Procession, but we can hear The Radio Dept, M83 and a whole lot more as well. Live he is joined by Joe Daniel (Angular) on bass and Josh Alexander on drums for something that is a lot heavier – comparisons have been made to Flying Saucer Attack.
Crushed Beaks, New London-based duo who combine full-on noise with melody, texture and atmosphere. Their debut single ‘Close-Ups’ / ‘Sun Dogs’ was released on Too Pure last November and was one of the year’s most promising new releases.
