We are quite awed to be hosting a date for Natural Snow Buildings first ever UK tour! The enigmatic French duo create a deeply unique sound encapsulating folk, drone, shoegaze and sinister references to John Carpenter, The Blair Witch Project and the macabre. They have an extensive but painfully elusive discography both under their own name and also their solo projects, Twinsistermoon and Isengrind. Most of these releases now go for silly money but top UK underground label Blackest Rainbow have managed to make some of the highlights slightly more widely distributed.
In support we have Sam McLoughlin & Alison Cooper aka Samandtheplants doing a special experimental set utilising some recently built instruments. Samandtheplants have done 3 EPs and an album for Twisted Nerve Records. Their music is curious, whimsical and experimental where folk music meets modern technology and new acoustic instruments.
Opening the night are curious dark local act A Rookery who take acoustic music into 2012.
Tickets on sale now from the venue, Jumbo Records in Leeds and online at Wegottickets.com
