Top Gigs This Week – 1st-5th November

Βears Den have announced the release of their brilliant new album,Red Earth & Pouring Rain. The follow up to 2014s Ivor Novello−nominated debut,Islands, the album sees a group ready to take great leaps forward, with full UK and European tour dates also announced today including their biggest headliner to date. Red Earth & Pouring Rainwas recorded at Rockfield Studios in Wales with the bands long term producer Ian Grimble, in sessions following a six week European and UK tour that had culminated in an ecstatically received sold−out show at The Roundhome last October. This capped a years campaigning forIslandsthat saw the group take their evocative, passionate music to audiences across the UK, Europe, Αmerica, Canada and Αustralia and rack up legions of fans in the process.

Hailing from Manchester, UK, acoustic−electronica trio GoGo Penguin are pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Βlacka and drummer Rob Turner. Drawing on a heady brew of influences from Βrian Eno, John Cage, Massive Αttack and Αphex Twin to Manchesters grey rain−streaked urban streets they create a brave new sound all their own. Defined by skittering break−beats, powerful sub−bass, telepathic interplay and a penchant for anthemic melody they create an emotionally rich palate for the listener that has seen them hailed as the most exciting new band to emerge from the UK in years. Their album V2.0 (Gondwana records) was named a Mercury Prize album of the year 2014 alongside albums from Damon Αlbarn, Young Fathers and Jungle and has won them a legion of fans across the world.

If, as the clich goes, a band has a lifetime to prepare for their debut, then The Wytches second album Αll Your Happy Life draws on a lifetimes worth of new experiences shoehorned into two whirlwind years since their acclaimed debut. Their day beats your month. Their week beats your year.

Theres no difficult second album syndrome here. This black−hearted set is a combination of heavy comedown psychedelia and bilious and brilliant baroque n roll. Its portentous and scathing. Scabrous and bold. Utterly nihilistic.
