"They've been called "London's answer to Animal Collective". You could equally call them a heavier, "math"-ier Vampire Weekend, or a "lite" These New Puritans – not as a criticism but as a way of complimenting their dense yet somehow weightless concoctions." - Guardian
"While MP's first offering 'Black Clouds' was a sleepy and sad-eyed tale of bleakness, its follow up is an altogether more jaunty affair. The seductively trashy guitars and samba shuffle are sprightly and spiky, yet the Merok newbies still bring to mind 'Rent'-era Pet Shop Boys. No bad thing at all." - NME
"Capable of moving hearts as well as hips. And, whichever direction at the crossroads they may choose to take next, the future sure looks bright." - thisisfakediy
"You've got to see them live ... are a wondrous thing with more in common with the Brooklyn brigade. Think MGMT and Animal Collective, with a similarly fresh take on psychedelia. And think the Beach Boys when Brian Wilson was in bed with Van Dyke Parks" - Guardian
Strong Look vs The Thomas Bird - The brains behind Sex Tape head to head with The Thomas Bird.
SHOBMX - Scary. Could go either way.
Rupert Moredich - Sunglasses, laptop & dignity intact.
Stephanie Bless - Fresh.
Love Thy Neighbour Records is proud to be releasing as its inaugural release 'And Blood And Air' by the wonderful Abi Wade. As a reflection of how excited we are to be doing this we decided to put on a free show with a selection of artist supporting chosen by the young lady herself.
Abi Wade (cello.box.voice) A Musical collaboration between limbs, strings and vocal chords. Her music is seemingly and seamlessly sewn together, each beat, melody and bass line put exactly in its place to create songs that pull the heart strings and a performance that will beguile and intrigue.
The cello is the backbone to the four songs that comprise her And Blood And Air EP – a set
that strikes the listener with a singular blow, soft but undeniably
affecting. Carved with a uniquely tailored blade it is hard to liken her to any former artist, but
similarities have been drawn to the independently distinct
Arthur Russell, Joanna Newsom and Kate Bush.
'Her one-woman band employs on ingenious ways to play the cello and a single pedal-controlled beat to create the sparse backdrop upon which her powerful voice floats..' 'le cool london'
Support to be provided by Jennifer Left and Amity
