Fancy Claps #70 - Wharf Chambers - Sunday 8th May - £5 on the door. BAMBOO Bamboo is a sublime project from Nick Carlisle (of Peepholes, Don't Argue) and Rachel Horwood (of Trash Kit, Halo Halo). Their music is vivid and deeply poignant, locking into a magnetic attraction between Horwood's flawlessly resonant folk cadence and Carlisle's pristine synth pop production. Far from being a one-off, Bamboo is very much a fully realized pursuit, with the band working on multiple records simultaneously from their Brighton and London base camps. Prince Pansori Priestess is the first album to see the light from this pairing of talents. Recorded from spring 2014 to spring 2015, this was before the band expanded to a four-piece for live performances, showcasing Bamboo as an original duo with a sound-world very much their own. The title references a Korean genre of musical storytelling alongside notions of majesty and faith, which are all streams that weave their way through the record. Central to the work's sound is the meeting of the warmer tones evident in the vocals, acoustic drums, and banjo with the immaculate, spatial nature of the synths and beat-scapes. https://m.soundcloud.com/bamboosongs MIA LA METTA Kathy from Beards' solo project. Synthy art-pop constructions skewed with bizzaro effects, wonked guitar and dreamy vocals. https://mialametta.bandcamp.com/releases WAR LASS Analog synths, sequencers and homemade electronics chirping and humming along to repeating guitar or drums patterns, Lungfish meets Morton Subotnick perhaps?
