SPENCER KRUG – 9.30pm
After fifteen years of writing and performing with projects like Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown, Moonface, Swan Lake, and Frog eyes, this prolific artist has finally decided to release and tour the music he makes under his own name – Spencer Krug. First gaining attention in the mid-2000s as co-leader of Montreal’s rock’n’roll Wolf Parade, then soon after as the voice and mind behind the chaotic Sunset Rubdown, Krug eventually used the now-defunct Moonface as an outlet for his more experimental and sporadic solo material. And while Krug still writes and sings for the recently reactivated Wolf Parade, there remains in him a need to express something less rock-oriented and more quiet and strange and introverted. So, returning to his first and favourite instrument, the piano, Krug has ventured back into his own fantastic world of pseudo-classical balladeering; poetic lyricism laced with twisted pop sensibility and jazz mimicry. Using this template, he now releases his solo work, and tours a variety of new songs as well as those from older projects, as Spencer Krug.
Nicolas Burrows is an artist, illustrator and musician from Blackpool now living in London. As Fell (and previously Glaciers) he has built up a catalogue of bedroom-recordings, albums and EPs and has shared stages with the likes of Diane Cluck, Wild Nothing and The Cairo Gang. 2016’s studio album There Still Are Mysteries (produced by Stereolab’s Andy Ramsay) marked a shift away from the lo-fi pop of the previous ten years, and was followed up in April of this year with For The Pickling featuring avant-folk singer David Thomas Broughton and members of Landshapes/Deep Throat Choir.
Fell’s music plays with off-kilter lyrics as counterpoint to a wonky-pop aesthetic and flits between subtle psych-folk gems, multi-movement epics, sixties garage pop and brooding Waits-ian hymns.
