With a previous imp headlining show at the Tunnels in November last year and a not-so-long-ago performance at The Lemon Tree re-opening weekend with his left hand man King Creosote, Johnny Lynchs live reputation as The Pictish Trail is gathering momentum and plaudits in equal measure.When hes not busy running Fence Records, taking the lead axeman role in the KC band or watching J.Mascis vids on YouTube, he spends his time fronting his own Fence Collective supergroup, armed with an array of hypnotic folk-drone electro-psych-rock gems primed to make you move in mysterious ways. O-o-oh.In this stripped-down (to his pants) performance, PT will stir your loins with warm, welcoming tales, keyboard odysseys, acoustic neo-folk rumblings and all manner of undeniable oddball noises. Hell maybe have a special guest with him and will also try and sell you his new album Secret Soundz Vol 1, the chancer!a sound comparable to Hot Chip-meets-Beta Band, with a dynamite voice thrown in. (The List)a brilliant collection of songs which blend warm electronic instrumentation with guitars and Mr Lynchs distinctive vocal talent. (Words Fail Me Now - Track of the Month, The Scotsman)The album is a strolling, home-made blend of acoustic pop and electronica, resoundingly rural and effortlessly immediate.

She works on a ferry in Bristol, she's pretty good at doing impressions of people's voices, and she produces incredibly lo-fi folk-dirges that stick in your head for days. Her new album Inside Over Here will be released by FENCE later this year. Remember her stunning Aberdeen debut at Peacock last October with Francois and the Atlas Mountains? Yeah? Well this will be even better She possesses a voice that somehow sounds like it's singing just for you, and her songs shine in your eyes and on your cheekbones like permanent summer sun. Perfect.

Pete is a confused beardy sleep-on-beaches-tree-talking-thought-filled-grumpy-morning-sandal-strolling-dust-scuff-pavment-staring singer*lad. Expect lo-fi clicks, pings, drums, strums and a quiet voice quivering. http://www.myspace.com/lazysheepdog Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
