ORGAN THINGS: New Opera Hero join in the f’off next Saturday, and here’s some Netsuke, and some Scalper, and some Pinkshinyultrablast and some…

A bag load of things we thought worth a mention this fine Monday, things that have passed through in the last couple of rather fractured days.   And it does feel a little fractured around here right now, went to a couple of art show openings last Thursday, nothing worth that much of a mention here, really can’t just fill up these electronic pages just for the sake of it

NEW OPERA HERO

NEW OPERA HERO

Let’s have a dig about in the in box and see what’s arrived, some new Blur? Just having a listen to a bit of new Blur, nah, just talking types and leave it in the last century with the apples and pears, another bit? Nah again, leaving us as underwhelmed as we were with that new show in the back room at Space Gallery last Thursday.  Tiny houses? Here and there? No no no, this will not do Blur.  Here’s the new single from Russian 90’sists, a band rather plugged in to a time when Blur were a little more worthy of your time than they are now. Modern life is indeed rubbish, always was, here’s a new slice of fluffiness and pink dry-ice Slowdiving Cocteau-clouds from Pinkshinyultrablast.  “Ravestar Supreme” is released on 7″ single via the Club AC30 label on 30th March 2015, the song is taken from the Russian band’s debut album “Everything Else Matters”, also out via Club AC30 (in collaboration with Shelflife and Vinyl Junkie.

‘Heliotrope’ is the upcoming single from Netsuke, set for release on April 13th via Illustrated Records. Formed from the ashes of respective award-winning bands in their homeland, the Sydney born and London based trio take inspiration from a myriad of artists from Bjork to Animal Collective, creating atmospheric pop with intricate electronic textures and ethereal soundscapes. After solid stints in their former bands and supporting the likes of Gold Panda and Junip, Danny Keig and siblings Freya and Elias Berkhout came together last year, honing their innovative sound before heading to London with a fully-realised body of work.  2015 will see the release of three singles across the year leading to their debut album release in 2016. The band celebrate the launch of ‘Heliotrope’ with a debut headline show in the capital at Power Lunches on April 13th

Netsuke didn’t mention Yes in the press release so far be it for us to do so, instead we’ll bring up New Opera Hero, you can catch them next Saturday evening, March 28th, over at that Broadway Studios Pop Up, F**k Off show we told you about a couple of days back. “”Post electro-rock and driving electronica inside the head of a giant baby…” somewhere around 9pm. The show itself, an art show spread over some 20 rooms, starts around 3pm, art and artists from all over London

.

Looking like something rather special is going to go down over in London SW17 next Saturday night, Broadway Studios going out in style…..

This is the new Scalper ‘Lunatics’ EP out and available to buy on Monday March 23rd 2015 via and on www.jfxlab.net.  This rather mellow slice of refined hip-hop from Scalper comes wrapped in artwork from Lilith Boniwell (aged 6), I wonder how she draws a dog?
