THE GIG
Woman’s Hour support Still Corners - London, XOYO


A rare London gig where hushed voices and a static audience are fitting companions to the music on display. Woman’s Hour warrant silent, unswerving attention, and as support for Still Corners this is one of their biggest shows to date.

THE SONG
Wishyunu - Sprayy


Portland’s Wishyunu are Tony and Bai, a couple of musicians with their heads in the clouds and their ears pressed up against the sound of Beach House’s ‘Devotion’ playing in the foreground. It’s great to see Victoria Legrand and co. influencing so many exciting new bands, but nothing’s yet emerged as clearly-defined and potentially game-changing as ‘Sprayy’. Direct, affecting songwriting with a gorgeous aesthetic. Few things come simpler, or indeed more satisfying.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
MY BODY - New Cat


Sometimes you’ll find songs from a new band that gained release 1 year ago, followed by a bout of silence, no signs of life. Fortunately Brooklyn’s MY BODY are still active, and for good reason. Even if the whole sodding world has failed to pick up on how good a song ‘New Cat’ is for the past twelve months, they’re not letting up. It’s too good to go ignored. Sample after sample is laid on top of one another, but it’s Jordan’s vocals that lift the track up into a higher calling. Again: direct, simple, but stunning stuff.
