FRESH AIR MUSIC TEAM GIG GUIDE SEPTEMBER 2016

SEPTEMBER 11TH L7 O2 ABC GLASGOW

MARISSA FIELD: Air-tight, consciously disgusting rock n’ roll met eighties classic rock when California-based trio L7 started up more than 25 years ago and a whole new energy came to punk; tailored to the ideals of third-wave feminism and still drawing in scores of ‘scary girls’ worldwide, L7’s return is long overdue.

SEPTEMBER 13TH NOTHING BROADCAST GLASGOW

SIMON FERN: Great crashing waves of ambient, room filing noise.

SEPTEMBER 14TH MODEL AEROPLANES LA BELLE ANGELE EDINBURGH

SEPTEMBER 16/17/18TH MCFLY O2 ACADEMY GLASGOW

CAROLINE ELMS: I like McFly because I think they’re brilliant songwriters. If you’re going to any night of the Anthology tour, I’d recommend the Wonderland/Motion in the Ocean - both great pop albums! Star Girl, anyone?

SEPTEMBER 17TH FVNERALS BROADCAST GLASGOW

SEPTEMBER 18TH FLATBUSH ZOMBIES + A$AP TWELVYY GARAGE GLASGOW

ANDREW MALCOLM: From Flatbush New York, Flatbush Zombies are at the forefront of The Beast Coast Movement, their debut album “3001: A Laced Oddysey” is experimental hip-hop that hits hard and does not leave room for criticism – an act that live will be definitely memorable

SEPTEMBER 19TH DEAP VALLEY ELECTRIC CIRCUS EDINBURGH

CHARLES T LANG: The American duo are rooted in authentic rock, but with a kick-ass punk attitude. Their live show is full of heavy bass riffs, thumping drum rhythms, and cathartic energy. It’s also a perfect opportunity to hear tracks from their new album, Femejism, out this Friday.

SEPTEMBER 20TH GARY NUMAN + I SPEAK MACHINE O2 ABC GLASGOW

SARA MONTANA: Gary Numan is the Dark Duke of synth pop riding high on the new wave. His music ranges from poppy tunes like Cars to haunting warehouse tracks like Here for You. Despite the differences in style, all his songs are rich and full ambience.

SEPTEMBER 21ST NATALIE MCCOOL ELECTRIC CIRCUS EDINBURGH

HANNAH BROWN: It’s quite simple pop. Fairly bass heavy accompanied with great vocals. Her newer stuff has developed much more character and quality in comparison to her earlier stuff. Pins is definitely worth a listen.

SEPTEMBER 23RD SUNDARMA KARMA LIQUID ROOMS EDINBURGH

ANDREW MALCOLM: Making massive headway on the UK indie circuit lately, Sundara Karma are a UK answer to We Are Scientists. Driving grooves, infectious hooks and hazy guitar melodies make Sundara Karma a formidable force both on record and live – the intimate atmosphere of Edinburgh’s Liquid Room’s will be electrified with their brand of indie rock.

SEPTEMBER 25TH THE MONA LISAS VOODOO ROOMS EDINBURGH

DANI HALL: I was introduced to the Mona Lisa’s by a friend which always makes music more memorable and significant to me. The Mona Lisa’s are one of those bands that just make you wanna get up and go rock out. They embody the grunge vibe of not caring about what other thinks through an indie feel. What’s also cool is that they’re a local Scottish band that’s worked their way up from the grassroots. If you’re looking for something new that’ll take to back to teenage house parties and letting loose, these guys are it.

SEPTEMBER 26TH HONEYBLOOD HUG AND PINT GLASGOW

VERITY LOUGHLIN: Honeyblood is the perfect band to listen to when you’ve been romantically double crossed by someone and want to rise up from the ashes of deceit.

SEPTEMBER 28TH FEEDER O2 ABC GLASGOW

JONATHAN BARNETT: I went off Feeder a couple of years ago, but I liked them when I was younger because they were noise with a message.

SEPTEMBER 30TH JUNGLE LA BELLE ANGELE EDINBURGH

ELINOR DONOVAN: Jungle are a music collective from London with this really cool/lazy/groovy sound that I guess you could probably call neo-soul. (Having said that think less 90s neo-soul à la Erykah Badu and more old-school soul updated for the 21st century). Their debut album came out two years ago but I still listen to it because it’s great and also you can tell they just really enjoy making their music and I love that about them. PS: I have heard they do an excellent excellent live show.”

SEPTEMBER 30TH THE KILLS O2 ABC GLASGOW

MIA ABEYAWARDENE: Sour Cherry (my fave Kills song) will make you wanna wear dark lipstick and start the next grrl power revolution. I first heard it in an episode of Gossip Girl called The Blair Bitch Project:
