22:00 | 'New Wild Everywhere' is the first album that Great Lake Swimmers recorded in a real studio instead of the usual grain silos and churches. For this fifth record, Tony Dekker was backed by his long-time accomplice Erik Arnesen and violin player Miranda Mulholland among others. The recurrent formula of timeless melodies that stay true (directly or indirectly) to a folk tradition results in another critically acclaimed body of work, that makes for a moving live experience.
20:00 - 20:40 | Nick Zammuto, ex-member of The Books, wrote and recorded 'Zammuto' (2012, Temporary Residence Ltd.) in a tractor garage in Vermont. More than just a solo project, Zammuto chose a radically different approach, both vocally and in the arrangements. Vocal effects, strings and spectacular drums amount to an unparalleled result.
21:00 - 21:40 | When Holy Fuck's Brian Borcherdt felt the need to develop a new sound, he spent a winter weekend in Nova Scotia, returning with a bunch of sober distortion-laden songs. He recorded them using a practice amp and nothing but the strictly necessary instrumentation with Leon Taheny (percussionist for Final Fantasy a.o.) and released the result 'Total Dust' on Polyvinyl this year. Being such a promising revelation, their show is absolutely not to be missed!
