The Cesarians – Unveiling their slightly tweaked line up The Cesarians buoy up their spectral but soulfully intense high drama pop noir with some adroit dirt and aural itchiness and compelling sonic grit. Following critically acclaimed albums produced by Craig Leon and Teo Millar, the ‘wrong rock/odd pop’ maestros now channel a rather more electronica hinged furrow with a little less brass and a wee bit of Velevetine guitar but no let up in the intensity and emotional maelstrom they effortlessly kick up…not to mention sensational songcraft. Songcraft often predicated on the maddening, saddening, unhinging side of love. Adroit this chill Valentines evening. Admirers of Nick Cave, Jacques Brel, Kris Kristoffersen, Bowie will all enjoy these dark eyed romantics, but all manner of things resonate in their wonderful body of work from The Fall to Pink Floyd to Suede…
John Hegley – The absurdist yet (when you think about it) eminently sensible raconteur, songsmith, Poptician and ukulele beat poet comes back to Hackney as very special guest of The Cesarians tonight. What a wonderful thing, this St Valentines Night, to celebrate all aspects of love the John Hegley way, with playful, wry, hilarious and sometimes achingly thought provoking verse.
Duncan De Morgan — New additiin to the bill for you to love. Leonard Cohen could be a touchstone with this boheme inclined troubadour du chanson.
The Dyr Sister — Hailing from the City of Hull, England, Sally Currie AKA The Dyr Sister (where dyr is Old Norse for deer) is a multi-instrumental cervine beat mistress who conjures up surreal tales with the aid of viola, synth, mandolin her voice and an array of DIY samples. Performing her catalogue of haunting, ethereal, modern day folk songs as a one-woman band she paints a fascinating canvas of sound.
Her original and innovative pieces are influenced by a wide range of genres from jungle and dubstep through trip hop and hip hop and ending somewhere deep amongst the many varieties of traditional folk music from around the world.
Expect enchanting performances from this most unique of musical artists.
She released her debut album “Fairy Tales for the Modern Gentleman – Volume One” in June 2015 and is currently recording Volume Two. In the Spring of 2016 she released the EP “The Demonstration Extended Play”.
