New Bums is a new duo consisting of Ben Chasny [aka Six Organs of Admittance] and Donovan Quinn [frontman of Skygreen Leopards] and perfectly blends their skills to maximum effect. Their debut album on Drag City “Voices In A Rented Room” earned great reviews from Pitchfork, All Music (who memorably described it as “a strange, haunted look into imagined desert scenes, cheap motels, and tales of depraved living, floating by on tunes so unassuming they disappear before the darkness ever truly sets in.”), Popmatters, Drowned In Sound and, of course, ourselves (we would never put on a band we weren’t into).
David Morris plays in Red River Dialect, a psych-folk-rock group from Falmouth, Devon who for this show will be performing in a stripped-down line-up. Often likened to a more forward-thinking version of The Waterboys. David will be playing either solo or in a duo,
Magpahi is the solo project of Alison Cooper and she has put out releases for such labels as Twisted Nerve, Bird Records and Folklore Tapes.
