Grey Lantern presents THE SOFT WALLS on Saturday 2nd August 2014
Grey Lantern are delighted to welcome The Soft Walls - project of Faux Discx records founder and Cold Pumas’ Dan Reeves.
After recording and releasing the eponymous Soft Walls album in 2012, Reeves set to work again, this time with a borrowed 8-track and a vision of composing a suite of thematically- interlaced tunes, resulting in his Trouble In Mind debut, No Time.
No Time’s ten songs are meditations on the passing of time itself and the pre-concieved notions (both external and internal) of what you can and should be doing with it. No Time’s lyrics touch on a universal fear held by many young people heading north of their Twenties; what am I doing, and will I have enough time to do it? While his debut was constructed ‘as-it-happened’ and recorded directly into his computer, No Time’s deliberate songcraft proves just how far he’s come as a tunesmith, seamlessly aligning his pop smarts with avant-leaning psychedelic drones and a propulsive, rhythmic drive. Dreamy guitar ragas like the opening track Won’t Remember My Name’ ebb and flow seamlessly into motorik head- boppers like Never Come Back Again and All The Same, whilst pop tunes Guided Through and No Time shimmer enticingly through a foggy haze.
Mixed to perfection with likeminded independents and Hookworms mastermind, MJ in Leeds and mastered by Joe Caithness at Subsequent Mastering, these are songs to get lost in; to discover & re-discover. Don’t worry - there’s plenty of time.
We've been waiting for a debut LP from Young British Artists for the sort of period of time that Kevin Shields might describe as 'not insubstantial'', but this brilliant post-punk four-piece have delivered in 2014, with the bristling, taut structures and fizzing energy of their live set crossing over to the studio in fully satiating full-length form. This is the year YBAs fully re-establish themselves.
Teardrop Factory are a messy indie rock band from Brighton, UK that play fractured pop music with a fondness for grit and distortion.
Both sickly and sweet, the echoes of Guided By Voices, Sonic Youth and Jesus & Mary Chain can be heard in their perfectly formed 3-minute pop songs. Like their peers before them they strike the balance between satisfying hooks and head-spinning dissonance. There is fuzz and reverb but most importantly there are songs that will lodge themselves, stubbornly, in your head.
Music Genres: Alternative, Indie
