DOLDRUMS / Silver Waves / Body Clocks :: Chiverin Showcase @ The Louisiana, Bristol - Friday 22nd May

 22 May
 The Louisiana Bristol
 Wapping Road - BS1 5 - Bristol - United Kingdom
This night in a nutshell: Doldrums - from the same DIY Montreal scene as Grimes & TOPS and just released an incredible album via Sub Pop some of which can be heard here: Silver Waves - noisy & beat laden. Championed by Howling Owl and throwing new punches with every set. Body Clocks - new on the scene, but exciting and atmospheric. Tickets from Press said some nice things about Doldrums... read below if you're so inclined. "more ambitious than his previous efforts, without sacrificing any of the usual cold-blooded, freaky pop strangeness." The FADER “In what little cracks are left between demolitions and Woodhead's sly, zonked-out rambling, you can hear the clatter of live, room-recorded drums, endless effects trails, and hand-triggered samples lifted from God knows where. These are remnants of Doldrums' writing process, and chances are that involves jamming on some heady grooves in a small, smokey room. It's surprising how well all the ideas work together, no matter how cluttered and overstuffed "HOTFOOT" may sound, but Doldrums has specialized in conjuring the unexpected.” [“Hotfoot”] - Pitchfork ”Hotfoot” is a master class in drone-y weirdness with a pop sensibility.” [“Hotfoot”] - Complex “Hotfoot” does not indicate is a drop in intensity. The song hits hard, its skewed metropolitan pulse giving way to aggro percussive bass bursts that remind me of LCD Soundsystem’s “Losing My Edge.” [“Hotfoot”] - Stereogum “…”HOTFOOT," which is a literal banger -- the main hook of the song is like a pogoing jackhammer and a car alarm all in one. In a good way, maybe owing just a bit to mid-'90s electronica.” [“Hotfoot”] - BrooklynVegan
