Wednesday, February 02 Lulu And The Lampshades, Tristram, Monument Valley 8pm adv £6
LULU & THE LAMPSHADES The Bristolian folk-pop band draw on a host of influences to produce joyful tunes that are passionately ramshackle, upbeat and folksy at times, mournful at others, percussive, and harmonic with shades of jazz, skiffle and bluegrass.
They are four people playing seven (usually) instruments, and singing about a variety of subjects, including but not limited to: zombies, James Dean, assorted authors, love stories, love-going-wrong stories, ships, bicycles, astral travel and fruit. The effect is not as jocular as this description implies, but is never the less very agreeablee
Formed whilst living aboard in Madrid last year, Monument Valley is the musical creation of London songwriter Edward Younger. With echoes of Nick Drake, Decembrists and an adolescence listening to the anti-folk and indie-pop of Moldy Peaches and Belle and Sebastian, the No Air EP introduces an exceptional talent and songwriter to the world, one with both huge originality and a lyrical talent to clearly mark him out from the off. Younger is joined live by Ridell’s cello and effects pedals whilst he plays guitar, and it's in the whites-of-eyes live arena where he really comes into his own.
