JENNY MOORE'S MYSTIC BUSINESS

London-based Canadian artist / composer / drummer / singer Jenny Moore (Charismatic Megafauna, F*Choir) and her rabble rousing vocal ensemble present a testament to the intimacy and intensity of communal singing, on a choral-punk album of epic scope. With raucous maelstroms, droning incantations, sweet solos and meditative murmurs, Mystic Business encompasses the macro and the micro, the political and personal, the ancient and modern: from philosophy to Mini Cheddars, ‘who’s God?’ to clickbait, the apocalyptic to the small human drama.

The debut self-titled album, out now on The Audacious Art Experiment holds gang yells, rounds, stamp-claps and hot breaths shift to exhilarating choral arrangements that are complex but compulsively sing-along-able and catchy as hell. These are fortifying mantras to fall back on in uncertain moments: ‘We quit!’, ‘We want our bodies back!’, ‘I don’t want to choose you/I don’t want to choose anything!’, or ‘We are terrified… We are angry… We are hopeful… We are on the internet’.

Hailing from the prairies of Canada, Moore grew up with a strange brew of american hardcore and gospel music before moving to London to study art. For the last 10 years, she's straddled the DIY art and music scenes in London, making live performances in fields, warehouse, and art museums alike, and playing in bands like the dance-punk band Charismatic Megafauna, and the pop punk trio Bas Jan (whose debut album just released on Lost Map Records). Jenny runs the Hackney-based feminist F*Choir and is the first artist in residence at Borealis Festival for Experimental music in Bergen, Norway.

Rattle

Rattle is a duo formed in Nottingham, comprised of Katharine Eira Brown & Theresa Wrigley. They released their first album of drums and vocals, Rattle on Upset The Rhythm in 2016 (recently featured on James Acaster's Perfect Sound Podcast) and their second, Sequence in 2018. Live, their sound is augmented by sound engineer Mark Spivey, creating a spacious, dub -influenced swirl of percussive sounds and vocals that has filled venues throughout the UK, Europe and the US on tours supporting Animal Collective, The Julie Ruin, Protomartyr, Thurston Moore Group and more. The duo are currently working on their third album, and getting ready for playing as many gigs as possible, in as many places as possible, again.
