Alexander Tucker + support on Friday 27th September 2019
Alexander Tucker is capable of creating immense sounds on such a grand scale that it is astounding to realize that it is (mostly) all the work of just one man. There is a distinct otherworldliness to his art. Psychedelic without ever resorting to tropes of the genre, it’s the subtle thread connecting every aspect of his output, from the vibrant and hypnotic avant-pop of Grumbling Fur, his duo with Daniel O’Sullivan, to extended drone collaborations with Charlemagne Palestine and Stephen O’Malley, to his beautiful yet strangely unnerving paintings and comics.
The unknown explored in his visual art was adventurously traveled on “Don’t Look Away” (Thrill Jockey, 2018) where the music, lyrics, and artwork all worked in tandem to conjure a universe that felt as fantastical and mysterious as familiar and warm.
“Guild of the Asbestos Weaver”, his new album, due August 23rd on Thrill Jockeycaptures Tucker’s boundless vision as a composer. In focusing on the more arcane aspects of his sound, and giving individual ideas and motifs more space to grow and evolve, Alexander Tucker has made his most immersive and intoxicating music yet.
“Don’t Look Away is a supremely confident album from a songwriter who has found his place and knows his music” – THE QUIETUS
“One of the UK’s finest songwriters” – THE WIRE
“Accomplished return from Kentish doom-folk oracle, now wrapped in a warm blanket of mid-70s Eno.” – UNCUT
“Simultaneously beautiful and uncanny” – MOJO
