  5. interesting music promotions present Adam Homes And The Embers + Buoy Gull Friday 22nd November 2019 The Blue Lamp, 121 Gallowgate, Aberdeen, AB25 1BU Phone: 01224 647472 Doors 7.30pm Tickets £16+bf in advance, £19 on door Available from wegottickets.Adam Holmes And The Embers Adam Homes And The Embers A welcome return after last year’s sell out show. 27-year-old Edinburgh-born singer/songwriter Adam Holmes is one of the brightest rising stars on the UK roots music scene, with influences from either side of the Atlantic mixing traditional and contemporary folk with his own brand of soul and Americana. Twice nominated for BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, his first two albums were also nominated for Scottish Album of the Year in 2014 and 2017, and there is much anticipation as to whether he can make it three in a row this year with third album Midnight Milk, which was released in September 2017 .His first album, Heirs and Graces, was produced by John Wood (producer of all Nick Drake’s albums and John Martyn’s iconic Solid Air album) and mastered by Simon Heyworth (co-producer of Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Be lls) and second album, Brighter Still, features two-time BRIT award winner Eddi Reader on backing vocals throughout. Latest album Midnight Milk was recorded in one room in his Edinburgh flat, but came complete with full brass section, an eighteen-voice choir and a widescreen folk/soul/electronica production, which was influenced by a 2016 collaboration he was involved in with Adrian Utley of Portishead, Dominic Aitchison of Mogwai and Martin Green of Lau. Live, he and his band the Embers combine the rhythm and blues, country and folk music textures of classic artists such as The Band, Tom Petty and The Heartbeakers and Ryan Adams and The Cardinals with their own hint of Scotland. They have featured widely on live sessions for BBC Radio 2 and Radio 3, BBC Scotland, Edith Bowman’s BBC Scotland Quay Sessions show and Virgin Radio, amongst many others, and are regulars on the UK and European festival and touring circuit, having shared bills with the likes of Laura Marling, Van Morrison, Richard Thompson, Jason Isbell, The Avett Brothers, Sturgill Simpson and Chvrches amongst many others. https://adamholmesandtheembers.com/ Buoy Gull A new collaboration between Kenny Anderson (King Creosote) and Mairearad Green. Having grown up in the West Coast Coigach peninsula of the Scottish Highlands – an area steeped in culture and local traditions – Mairearad Green was introduced to folk music at an early age. Renowned for her deft and lyrical accordion style, as well as her dextrous piping, she is in great demand not only as a performer, but also as a composer. Mairearad regularly performs alongside multi-instrumentalist Anna Massie, creating “music much more than the sum of just two parts” (The Scotsman). She has previously toured with Eddi Reader, Karine Polwart, The Poozies, The Unusual Suspects, Box Club, Matilda Brown’s ensemble, and Tunebook with Ross Ainslie and Simon Bradley. With a career spanning twenty years and sixty albums, King Creosote, aka Kenny Anderson, needs no introduction. The co-founder of the much-loved micro-indie label, Fence Records, and a key figure in the Scottish folk scene, he is signed to Domino Records, and in 2011 was nominated for a Mercury Music Prize for the album Diamond Mine, produced in collaboration with Jon Hopkins. He and Mairearad, are two like-minded souls who met in the Highlands to record a series of stunning new songs and this gig is a rare opportunity to hear the exceptional music that they have created together live under the name Buoy Gull.
  6. impinteresting music promotions in association with Jazz at The Blue Lamp and Sound Festival present ISHMAEL ENSEMBLE + HAMLET Thursday 31st October 2019 The Blue Lamp, 121 Gallowgate, Aberdeen, AB25 1BU Phone: 01224 647472 Doors 7.30pm Admission: £15, concession £12, students £5 Available at Aberdeen Box Office or Tickets http://www.jazzatthebluelamp.com https://sound-scotland.co.uk www.facebook.com/interestingmusicpromotions ISHMAEL ENSEMBLE Following a banner year for Pete Cunningham, best known as dextrous saxophonist Ishmael and leader of the namesake Ishmael Ensemble, 2019 now brings debut album ‘A State Of Flow’. A longplayer that builds on Cunningham’s work as proud protector of Bristolian heritage sketching loving sonic pictures of the South West in his Bristol-inspired ‘Severn Songs’ series, whilst also incubating local visual and musical talent, within the Ensemble. These endeavours have won him acclaim and support, not only from venerated musicians and broadcasters including Caribou, Gilles Peterson & Mary Anne Hobbs, but also the UK tastemaker press and attuned jazz fans - who voted a UK Jazz Special at the BBC’s Maida Vale featuring the Ensemble ‘Session of the Year’, at the Worldwide Awards. The new album touches on various styles of jazz, stirring ambient invocations, club-ready percussive workouts, spiralling grooves & hazy psychedelic electronica. This would be a confusing melange, but for Cunningham’s excursions as a genre-agnostic DJ – something evident in the real house shuffle of ‘Lapwing’ – which evokes walking into a smoky after hours haunt and finding a session in full, forward motion or the organic garage beats of ‘Full Circle’ and nod to trip-hop in ‘Waterfall’ fuelled by Holysseus Fly’s honey toned and evocative vocals. This album, borne of strong vision and stronger hometown pride, embellishes Ishmael Ensemble as one of the UK’s finest new groups. As shown across ‘A State of Flow’, the future of Bristol’s musical legacy is in more than capable hands. “Incredible independent music from Bristol. These guys just get better with every release” Gilles Peterson “A deeply arresting sound from one of our favourite cities, simply beautiful” Mary Anne Hobbs “Making music that’s pitched somewhere between astral jazz, burbling electronica, trippy minimalism, psychedelic dub and 20 years of club culture.” Contemporary album of the month The Guardian “A band seemingly capable of doing anything, yet remaining fleetfootedly themselves throughout.” The Wire “Cunningham’s past as a deep house producer and genre-defying DJ reaps ripe rewards on his ensemble’s skittering West Country homage.” Jazz album of the month MOJO “Championing the UK’s thriving contemporary jazz sound while simultaneously keeping in step with experimental and inventive electronics.” DJ Mag http://ishmaelensemble.com https://www.instagram.com/ishmaelensemble https://www.facebook.com/IshmaelEnsemble Video Links https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtyxTFL87zw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ly1O5-PgxQ8 HAMLET Cutting edge modern jazz fusion collective, Hamlet’s music is a collision of Funk Fuelled Afrobeat, Driving Rock and Contemporary Jazz, with a strong sense of musical interplay and groove. Expect a high energy vibe that’s sure to excite! https://www.facebook.com/HamletCollective

  23. MP are delighted we welcome back 10000 Russos, after their first and wonderful debut visit back in May 2017. Equally delighted with the show supports, which will make this "a must not miss show" Wed 6th November 2019 The Tunnels (1) Doors 7.30pm Advance tickets £9.50 + BF via this link https://www.wegottickets.com/event/477737 featuring 10000Russos (Fuzz Club) Wozniak (Morningside Young Team Records) Min Diesel https://www.facebook.com/interestingmusicpromotions/ https://twitter.com/IMP_Aberdeen https://www.facebook.com/tunnelsaberdeen/ 10,000 Russos (Fuzz Club) are a formidable force within modern psychedelia; their industrial psych/post-punk has been charming fuzz-heads across the globe with its stomping, shamanic mantras and otherworldly krautrock slant. Following their debut album the Portuguese trio have released their huge second LP ‘Distress Distress’ on April 7 2017 via Fuzz Club Records. This record was heavily promoted with two huge european tours (one of 50 gigs, other of 60) during the years of 2017 and 2018. Alongside sold out club gigs in 14 different European countries they have been headliners in festivals like Spacefest in Gdansk, Fuzz Club Fest in Eindhoven, Paredes de Coura in Portugal, Psych in Bloom 3D Fest in Stuttgart or Label Mates Fest in London. 10,000 Russos have once again transcended the boundaries of psychedelia as we know it today; their dark, droning noise is twisted, distorted and pushed to its limit. ‘Distress Distress’ is so ritualistic and industrial it see’s their usual post-punk sound – a primal and celestial mix of The Fall, NEU! and Spacemen 3 – pushed within an inch of techno territory with its abrasive, metronomic rhythms. Since their debut self-titled LP,Russos have been touring Europe extensively and acquiring a cult-like following at a whiplash rate – their incredible performance at Liverpool Psych Fest was widely described as a stand-out set by numerous music publications and fuzz fiends-alike. With the entrance of second record ‘Distress Distress’, the band are showing no sign of slowing down either – redefining psychedelia with every hiss of feedback. Autumn 2019 brings another massive European tour coincides with the launch of their third (yet to be titled) LP with Fuzz Club. Its sure to be mega-massive live. https://www.facebook.com/10000Russos https://fuzzclub.bandcamp.com/album/fuzz-club-session https://twitter.com/10000russos http://fuzzclub.com/blogs/posts/39575363-meet-10-000-russos-the-band-that-were-so-good-live-we-signed-them-at-the-side-of-the-stage Wozniak (Morningside Young Team Records) Shadowy and mountainous in equal measure, the quartet’s dense, noisy walls of sound were showcased to thrilling effect on debut album Courage Reels – issued in 2017 via their own Morningside Young Team imprint. Now, they’re set to follow it with a new 40-minute EP. Mixing the visceral squall of Mogwai and My Bloody Valentine with the murky atmospherics of Slowdive, their performances set overwhelming sonics to arresting visuals – an absorbing, multi-sensory show you’d be a fool to miss! A Lovely review of their latest EP https://primalmusicblog.com/music/ep-review-wozniak-the-space-between-the-trees/ https://wozniak.bandcamp.com/album/the-space-between-the-trees https://twitter.com/band_wozniak https://facebook.com/wozniakofficial Min Diesel Min Diesel are a guitar-led three-piece from the north-east of Scotland, who shamelessly plunder the best bits from their favourite late-80s/early-90s punk, lo-fi and math-rock bands' back-catalogues to create music they've taken great amusement from dubbing "min-die rock". Since their inception, Min Diesel have shared a stage with Errors, Acoustic Ladyland, Joan of Arc, Hot Club de Paris, Sky Larkin and Paws. They have always been one of our fav local bands and delighted to have them open this show....its been a while you two hunks and the dreamboat!! https://www.facebook.com/Min-Diesel-122142337808269/ https://mindiesel.bandcamp.com
