ALBUM LAUNCH: Casually Here / Kept

Uncategorized

Casually Here — South London-based producer Nic Nell — is releasing his debut album Kept, a record of nocturnal subterranean ‘night bus music’. He describes it as ‘a record evoking liminal states of mind between warmth and safety and experiences of coming home alone in South London at night’. The Prickle describes it as ‘really rather good’.

See it live with cellist Tom Pickles at the album launch on Tuesday 6 October hosted by the edgily delightful Rye Wax in Peckham. Oh, and it’s free (both the launch and the record) because Casually Here is casually ace.

SESSION: Maz Sings for Orchard Sessions

Uncategorized

Maz — trumpeter from musical-joy-explosion Snarky Puppy — has got a soulful set of pipes on him. This is a charming and groove-filled session featuring his kind vocals accompanied by some of the Pups along with Talia Billig who curates the rather excellent Orchard Sessions. How do you like them apples?

TRAILER: Accidental Love

Uncategorized

Jessica Biel’s naïve roller-skating waitress Alice is seconds away from accepting a proposal from her copper boyfriend, Scott — a man obsessed with expressing his emotions in percentages, played endearingly by James Marsden — when an accident involving a nail gun sees poor Alice struck down with a new, but not fatal, hair accessory. What ensues is a crusade upon Washington DC for healthcare for all.

Coming soon (Friday 19 June, to hit the head on the nail).

Not everyone creates a method for harmonizing and symphonizing real life. Not everyone is Chassol. This new audio-visual project — Big Sun — takes us to his family’s birthplace of Martinique, where his encounters form the basis for another surreal and hypnotic journey into the world of Chassol.

Big Sun gets its UK premiere at Rich Mix on 20 May at Rich Mix.

My Note is the first release from 10-piece genre-hopping Hans Prya. Having met during an artist residency with Snarky Puppy’s Michael League, Bill Laurance and Robert ‘Sput’ Searight it is little surprise that the band exhibits such an eclectic yet controlled sound.

Led by percussionist Felix Higginbottom, follow their progress in this five-part live video series and beyond.
