GREY LANTERN PRESENTS… TEEN DAZE – http://teendaze.bandcamp.com/ + BROTHERTIGER – http://brothertiger.bandcamp.com/ & G R E A T W A V E S – http://soundcloud.com/mrmanini doors 7:30pm – TICKETS £6 ADVANCE – http://www.wegottickets.com/event/152987 ———- Grey Lantern are proud to announce that we’ll be welcoming Teen Daze to Manchester, with the bedroom project of Canadian producer making his debut in the country in April following four years of prolific and often captivating activity. Joining him on his maiden voyage will be Ohio resident Brothertiger, the moniker of producer and musician John Jagos. In Manchester they’ll be joined by the thrilling talent of local drone-pop group G R E A T W A V E S. With a mind seemingly constantly wondering and seeking to express itself, Jamison a.k.a Teen Daze has been regarded as somewhat of a prolific artist over the past few years, with a slew of tracks, remixes, EPs and albums finding their way out onto the internet as the producer seeks to document the different paths that his musical journey’s taking him. One such trip began whilst studying philosophy over seven weeks in the Swiss Alps, a time which also saw him take in the fiction of the likes of C.S Lewis whose mystical novel ‘Out Of The Silent Planet’ influenced last year’s EP A Silent Planet Whereby his previous works had seen him dipping wholeheartedly into genres including lo-fi and dream-pop, ‘A Silent Planet’ saw him draw the result of his previous sandbox experiments together to create a sense of otherworldliness that gently ricocheted between various touchstones, making a unique sonic world all of its creators own working.

LA FEMME (FR) Feb09

LA FEMME (FR)

Thursday 9th February 2 0 1 2 KRAAK Gallery, 11 Stevenson Square, Manchester M1 1DN LA FEMME (FR) with support from G R E A T W A V E S and FRENCH SOUL PARTY. Tickets are £5 from Skiddle: http://www.skiddle.com/whats-on/Manchester/Kraak-Gallery/NORTHERN-CROSSES-presents-LA-FEMME-(FR)–GUESTS/11578548/ Please note that this is a over 18s only event. ++++++ LA FEMME remains an enigma. Hailing from Paris, the group walks the line between erotic avant-pop and lo-fi surf rock. Their music can be flippantly light-hearted or aggressively dark depending on their mood. The one thing is clear though: La Femme is part of the 2010s, a decade that has yet to be written. Their first track called “Sur la Planche’ – On the Board has been described by NME as ” a super-impressive Cure-meets-Tron retread with France Gall vocals and a lovely Libs-esque guitar line at the end”. http://lafemme.bandcamp.com/ FRENCH SOUL PARTY are an indie dance quintet from Huddersfield, UK. Their first track, Greek has been described as “playful, uptempo and clean alternative pop. http://soundcloud.com/french-soul-party G R E A T W A V E S are a new 2 piece that have played a handful of Manchester shows so far: They supported Mystery Jets’ Kai Fish last year at the Deaf Institute. “Drony guitar/keys combo similar to that of HTRK and Sonic Youths fuzzy vocals”.
