DOORS – 7:30pm
ROCHEMAN – 8:30pm
JENNY HVAL – 9:30pm
Norwegian multidisciplinary artist and writer Jenny Hval has developed her distinct take on intimate sound since the release of her debut album in 2006. For her last two solo albums, 2013’s Innocence Is Kinky and 2015’s Apocalypse, girl, Hval’s debut for Sacred Bones, she has received thoughtful and widespread international acclaim for her fascinating voice, singular delivery and markedly non-traditional arrangements which incorporate elements of poetry, prose writing, performance art, and film. The New York Times defines her writing as “taking a scalpel to the subjects of gender politics and sexuality.” Hval has eloquently brought to light issues of both male and female gaze, which for years had been swept under the rug and/or denied all together.
This year, Hval returns with a new EP, The Long Sleep, set for release May 25th via Sacred Bones. Be one of the first to see her perform the new material in this intimate set-up.
Rocheman is a London stage music composer and sound designer. Five years in the making, his eponymous debut album careens a hazy path through post-punk, new-wave and electronica. Rocheman’s sound both fights and embraces the bedroom production aesthetic; this is neither entirely digital or analogue, clinical or DIY. Rather it is a multitude of alien textures, parallel world harmonies and “other voices” beckoning our baritone protagonist from off-stage.
