London, Sebright Arms
On the day their debut strikes out, Crushed Beaks play a headline show at East London haunt Sebright Arms. ‘Scatter’ is a rough and ready first work, full of purpose. For years now, this thrashing group have made their name on sweatfest gigs across the capital - tonight will be no exception, especially given the occasion.
THE BIG NEU THING:
Alex Burey - Amen
Taken from the debut ‘Inside World’ EP (out today), ‘Amen’ is further proof that there’s nobody else quite like Alex Burey. The teenage producer likes his surroundings to be hushed and free-to-roam. On this heaven-sent taste, his music nestles into unlikely spaces - the gaps in a floorboard, the burrowed holes in a forest - finding beauty in the unknown.
