Conquering Animal Sound (Chemikal Underground)
Conquering Animal Sound were brought to our attention through their astonishing debut album ‘Kammerspiel’. released on Leeds-based label Gizah records, it’s a spectral, eleven-track wonder of creative splendour Seeing their Aberdeen debut not long after the release the band knocked us sideways, & returned in November 2011 & played their first IMP event during SOUND Festival. 2012 brought CAS the rich reward they deserved by making to the final 10 onto the shortlist for the first Scottish SAY awards (Scottish equivalent to the Mercury Music Prize, with similar 1st prize money). Comprising Anneke Kampman and James Scott both residents of Glasgow, CAS’ brand of pop (and it is pop, make no mistake) is rendered through a kaleidoscope of clicks, tape hiss, synths and a myriad of micro-electronica to produce something that’s bewitching and entirely immersive. Anneke’s voice is the most flexible and affecting instrument of all though: harmonised and restless, her layered vocals wax, wane and shipshift in such gloriously inventive waves that for it all to form part of a debut seems almost rude. Their brand new long play “On Floating Bodies”, is due out late March & IMP are really delighted to welcome them back early in the cycle of touring this eagerly anticipated new release.


Panda Su
IMP are also delighted to welcome back Panda Su. Always a wonderful live artist, she captures & enchants her audience with her wonderful words & story telling. Since her last visit she has had some great successes most notably her Alphabet Song was used in USA No 1 Box Office horror film & has opened up opportunities. She has also completed a great video of the same song in a Dundee Laundrette which is simultaneously serious & funny at the same time. Also to celebrate the Edinburgh Pandas arriving she was invited to entertain them with some songs


Is a mysterious Edinburgh based electronic music artist....iliop's music is evocative and weird, and conjours abstract images like those of motorways where the cars are nought but streams of light; Virtually nothing is online about him apart from this brief extract of a live performance "it’s not long before you’re lost in the siren-song of the ghostly audio he’s beaming out into the room. iliop never stops moving – letting up the next loop to come in at the right moment or fiddling with the wires laid around his feet; the detritus of sound-checks – guitar cables, pint glasses and instrument cases. It’s a crowded stage for one man, but he manages to take the air vibrate with some sort of cosmic, digital energy".
