Stacked line-up featuring the best of new weird sounds from Glasgow!
Still House Plants are a three-piece collective based in Glasgow. Obscured melodies and minimal song structures are suffused with light and silence. Shambling rhythms, pulsing chords, and lilting vocals undulate sincerely between sound, space, and the haptic.
Following the eponymously-titled EP in 2016 with GLARC, they are to release 'Assemblages' in mid-June, before playing dates around the UK and Europe. In October they will begin a construction and movement-based collaborative residency with Gordon Bruce (GLARC) and Thomas Leyland-Collins (TLC Sound System) at the CCA, Glasgow, following on from their exhibition ‘Talk To The Barking Dogs’ at The Pipe Factory, Glasgow.
Greater Lanarkshire Auricular Research Council provide aural consultancy, cassette based explication, applied research, and listening support. Specializing in environmental and noise, GLARC offer small scale research grants in the imaginary Greater Lankakshire area. GLARC's first open research project is entitled 'still house plants' and will begin in July 2016.
Pussy Mothers is the behaviour of a cross continental two piece from Scotland and Down Under: formed by waving not drowning.
Chasing percussions, vocal athletics and hand claps concocted into a platter of disco junk funk and early hip hop rhythms, The Number 1 EP took shape in Glasgow's tenement flats and came to life through a spaced out echo party held at Green Door Studios. It will be released via JG Wilkes & JD Twitch's iconic Optimo record label, at some point in our otherwise bleak collective future.
Infinitely un-google-able (seriously, don't try it), Pussy Mothers' weaponize reverb and delay to create Spirographs of 3D sonic space, yet for all that musical expanse, they stay grounded in the sweat and flurry of a bedroom danceparty.
Groan Vessel true to their name miss scott caruth, the chakras are shaken, the vessel is open.
