There are three musical events which have me excited about October and November.
Belleruche are a band I’ve meant to watch for a while as I seem to keep missing the vocals of Kathrin deBoer and the light accompanying guitar although be warned that the sound is more funky than folksy. They played at the Big Chill bar in February and are back in Bristol in October.
Where: Metropolis, Bristol
When: Thursday, 21 October 2010, doors at 19:30, starts at 21:00
Junip are a three piece band from Gothenburg, Sweden – featuring Tobias Winterkorn (keyboards), Elias Araya (drums) and José González (vocals & guitar). José González is better known for his solo work which includes the song Heartbeats featured in the Sony advertisement with the colourful bouncing balls. Junip are promoting their new album Fields (new single Always is on Spotify).
Local Natives are an indie rock band based in Silver Lakes, Los Angeles, USA. They released their album Gorilla Manor in November 2009 in the UK. According to Wikipedia, Clash Music described their music as “psych-folk, or modern worldly folk” and that sounds about right.
Where: Thekla, Bristol
When: Thursday, 18 November 2010, doors at 19:00, starts at 19:00
