Bristo Place, Edinburgh
All-Ages! BYOB! £5!
Overdue: the latest in the ‘Braw Trails’ series, from Braw Gigs and Tracer Trails!
TWO WINGS is the ace new project from Hanna Tuulikki (Nalle, Scatter) and Ben Reynolds (Baby Dee, Trembling Bells), plus Lucy Duncombe and Kenneth Wilson (Trees), Owen Curtis Williams (Benni Hemm Hemm, Rob St John) and Emily Roff (Tracer Trails!). Two Wings were recently described by total legend Daniel Higgs as “for real”. Genre fans, I’m calling this ‘nu wyrd dad rock’… Found yourself listening to Fleetwood Mac much lately? Me too. I think we’re ready for this! Hear tracks from Two Wings’ recently completed album (produced with John Cavanagh of Phosphene / Electroscope) online at http://twowings.bandcamp.com/
Two Wings are visiting Edinburgh as part of a short tour of Scotland with…
ARBOREA, a husband/wife psych-folk duo from Maine who have a new album out on Strange Attractors Audio House. Formed in the summer of 2005 Buck and Shanti Curran create “Low key intimate spellcasting affairs….. the fact that they are a couple might help to explain the seamless organic blending of their music together. Conjuring truly transportational magic out of the simplest ingredients. Their songs might be a hundreds of years old, and there’s little here to lock them into any moment other than forever”. (Dream magazine). Buck plays guitar, slide guitars, bowed strings, flutes, banjo, and vocals. Shanti provides lead vocals, banjo, ukulele, bowed strings, harmonium, and percussion. They are often joined by Helena Espvall on cello. http://arboreamusic.blogspot.com/
Opening this show will be the debut performance of a brand new Edinburgh band with NO NAME! Very little is known about this anonymous quartet, which reportedly comprises members of King Bear, Appendix Out, Giant Tank, The Wee Rogue and Red Death. They’ve been meeting in secret for around two years, and what little recorded evidence has leaked out of those sessions suggests such influences as Codeine, Red House Painters, Galaxie 500, Palace Brothers and Slint. We can’t wait to blow their cover!
Oh hang on, news just in: they’re called Long Distance Runner.
Proceeds from this gig go towards the Save the Forest Campaign.
