THE GIG
Rainer support No Ceremony - London, Electrowerkz


It’s still early days for Rebekah Raa and Casually Here’s Rainer, but tonight’s support slot for harsh-pop bringers No Ceremony offers a chance to see the duo in stirring, experimental form.

THE SONG
Husbands - Tokyo


Husbands are the buzzchild of Oklahoma City natives Wil Norton and Danny Davis. They craft beautiful, folk-tinged lo-fi pop, and their most recent offering ‘Tokyo’ is an absolute gem. It’s the first song they’ve made since Wil’s re-location to Washington DC, which forced them to adopt a bit of a Postal Service modus operandi, sending the song back and forth via email. The result is astounding; hints of Grizzly Bear coupled with cavernous production, glorious melodies and endearingly laid back guitars makes for a joyous listen. More please. [Nathan Standlee]

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
SMILE - Life Choices
Life Choices by SMILE

Woozy. Hazy. Breezy. These are three words that could be used to describe ‘Life Choices’, the debut album from Melbourne’s SMILE. Sure, they’re accurate descriptions, but they just don’t invigorate the right amount of excitement this record deserves. It’s EXCITING folks, and deserves to be felt – not described. If it’s a widescreen, open-top, life-affirming shaped hole, then look no further to fill it: SMILE are here to create…. well, smiles. [Tom Walters]
