Next Thursday we welcome Manchester’s KULT COUNTRY for their debut Birmingham show at Bulls Head in Moseley. Fellow crusaders of the much lauded Salford based Sways Records cultural regeneration which blessed the world with MONEY and GREATWAVES, these are an absolute must-not-miss for all the dreamers and admirers of soaring spectral songs oozing ambience, and intoxicating ideology. The blood lust distorted lullabies of a new preacher in part, wall of psychedelic sound the rest, going by the last time we saw them in Manchester this is going to be very very loud and very energetic. Musically akin to their former Sways’ labelmates with the addition of elements of SLOWDIVE, MY BLOODY VALENTINE and SPIRITUALIZED it’s going to be hopefully the start of your love affair with them and theirs with you. This all comes with support from distorted newcomers CURB and a solo show from RICK WELLINGS plus a DJ set from VICTORIES AT SEA’s Steve Edgehill. Check out the new single Trembling Moon out this week on No Self Records:

Introducing: THE GARDEN (BURGER RECORDS)
The Garden is a constantly evolving, conceptual punk band based in Orange County, California. Established in in 2011 by twin brothers Wyatt and Fletcher Shears, the band consistently defies categorization and continues to break ground in their self inflicted ‘Vada Vada’ genre. They are the auditory invaders of the new world; borderless, informed and decentralized, slick sound released from constraint and old ideologies.
The twins draw inspiration from a background in punk classicism but remain unfettered and unselfconscious enough to infuse elements of 90s hip hop and big beat electronica. The Garden is the intellectual refute to critics of the post modern, pantheistic generation of music listener with an equal dose of punk irreverence and undistilled fury.
Their two-piece bass and drums essence is dirty, raw and very immediate but equally nuanced with echoes of the hive mind of the Vadaverse, the ephemeral architecture that exists both inside and outside of the duo that the listener enters and never quite escapes. Together the twins are an acidic concoction; unstable, sexy and probably toxic.
The Garden’s shows are experiential, as powerful and philosophically confounding as they are glib and tricksy. There never is any time for explanations, only a sense of urgency and a rapid spiral into their parallel world. To be seduced and ensnared by mirror-image raconteurs, operating an addictive carnival ride of sound and movement that stops as abruptly as it starts, is a close approximation of The Garden experience.
The Garden play their first Birmingham headline show for This is Tmrw at The Sunflower Lounge on Friday August 15th.
