They will be joined for this evening by guitarist Michio Kurihara of Japanese psych-rock band Ghost. "[Kurihara] hasn't so much altered what they do as augmented it, often beautifully. The results are occasionally breathtaking.... rare and graceful" [MOJO magazine]http://www.myspace.com/damonandnaomihttp://www.damonandnaomi.comPICASTROPicastro are an amazing collective from Toronto based around singer Liz Hysen. To celebrate the release of their third CD, they make a very welcome return to Aberdeen after their staggering debut in May 05. As always, there will be moments of heartbreaking beauty and heart-wrenching despair, made via an even more stripped down instrumentation of cello, guitar and Hysen's use of vocals more as a lead instrument than just another texture in the mix.Picastro weave an abstract framework of extended, moody soundtracks [The Wire]http://www.myspace.com/picastrohttp://www.picastro.netADRIAN CROWLEYAdrian Crowley, a self-taught guitarist from Dublin, sings disparate songs with a deep, gentle voice, and writes touching ballads with a sensitive flair.The minute you hear Adrians soft, woozy monotone crack into song, and reverberate through the speakers, you'll drift away. He plays the electric guitar, rocking it around his waist, and bending the neck to produce a shudderingly ambient and sonorous ringing sound. His music hits you like the fever you get when you come in from the cold, sending your temperature soaring. [Fence Records]"A satisfying and beautifully rendered collection of melancholia."
