Arbouretum

8pm on Tuesday 6 November 2012 We’re delighted to be welcoming back Baltimore’s Arbouretum, who are in the UK to celebrate Thrill Jockey’s 20th birthday. Dave Heumann has played with The Anomoanon, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Cass McCombs and Papa M. Arbouretum is the first band for which he is the primary songwriter, guitarist and singer. Heumann’s idea for the band was one whose songs would evoke natural forms and movements as opposed to architectural constructions with rigid forms and linear progressions. The band’s debut album, Long Live The Well-Doer, a decidedly solo affair, was released in 2004 on Thrill Jockey Records. Seven years on and The Gathering, Arbouretum’s fourth album, was to a large extent inspired by The Red Book by Carl Jung, or more specifically, Jung’s pursuit of the inner images that led to the book’s writing. Heumann has long been a fan of experiences that surpass comprehension and describe the numinous. The narrative of ‘losing one’s way and finding it again’ resonated deeply and it was in this context that the songs that comprise The Gathering came to be. ‘Heumann has one of the most distinctive voices around, with a unique, heavy-folk feel to his grand, hymnal melodies’ – The Guardian...

HOOKWORMS from Leeds are a truly hypnotic presence live, a tilt-a-whirl of psychedelia, kraut, drone and all in between whipped up into an irresistible frenzy. “analogue box howls, acid-scorched riffs and malevolent motorik.” – Artrocker “equal parts space and noise; enough going on to keep you hooked, enough space in the tracks to set the listener’s imagination free” – Drowned In...
