Lifted from Plain Song's interweb event page! >>> LOOKEE >>>

This month I am extremely excited to be hosting Hype Williams, Way Through and Chad Valley at this months Plain Song.

Sonic experimenters Hype Williams have been making music and touring for years now, often working with various collaborators they have evolved from a band into a free form art project. They specialize in creating immersive bass driven sound-scapes using paired down vocals, synths and electronic beats. They often use appropriated audio that gives their music an emphasis on nostalgia. They’re innovative and obscure sound ranges from the warm and fuzzy to the jarring and oppressive, but it is always incredibly compelling.

Way Through are two people phasing in and out with guitar, samples, damaged drums and vocals. They play prism punk; ragged intuitive songs shot through with technicolour noise. Using repetition, swift interplay and happenstance they have a sound which is both fun and challenging, a sound that do anything and go anywhere.

Jonquil and Vertical Montana’s front man Hugo Manuel is blessing us with his One-man band Chad Valley. He creates sun soaked mesmeric Indie sounds using a sampler, a delay pedal, lots of reverb and a stack of records.

I am also pleased to announce that Jack Dove will be unveiling another new sculptural light based work, along with live projected visuals from Hype Williams.

Doors will open at 7 music will start at 9
