Green Mind presents LIELA MOSS (Independent Venue Week show)
Jan 29 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

My Name Is Safe in Your Mouth more than lives up to Moss’s promise of fresh, bold adventure. Sonically spare yet sumptuous in its emotions, elemental power and expansive melodies, the record is a richly felt, vividly realised trip into the interior from the Duke Spirit singer. A serene-to-stormy series of deep dream-pop meditations on devotion and selfhood, creativity and parenthood, it treats unknown territory not as something to fear but as a seed-bed of possibility.

Green Mind presents ESTRONS (Independent Venue Week show)
Jan 30 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

On very rare occasions, from the most destructive of places, beauty can emerge. Ever since singer Tali Källström and guitarist Rhodri Daniel met as “two strangers with disparate tastes and influences,” the two have been carving out a body of work that resembles an essence of chaos and beauty; a feeling of estrangement, an expression of morbid elegance, inspired by opposing sides. The funny thing about opposites, is they need each other in order to exist – one wouldn’t be what it is without the other.

From this place of tension, Estrons found their debut album. Ultimately, the bind that ties them is their love of creating fresh, exhilarating music, and with ​You Say I’m Too Much, I Say You’re Not Enough​, they’ve done just that.Beginning as an experiment, Estrons quickly became significantly more important than intended. They are simply aforce that cannot be forced.

With its off-kilter rhythms, angular guitar work and clashing atmospherics, the album is both arresting and thrillingly disorienting – a fitting sound for a band of “highly driven, frustrated, volatile people.”#

Vocals and instrumentals collide together throughout, creating a wild, beautiful noise – likely mirroring the self-confessed love/hate relationship between Rhodri and Tali, tied together by bassist, and long running producer,Steffan Pringle, whom they eventually convinced to join them. Despite the odds, they have captured a sound of their own. Estrons’ music “can be off-putting at first glance,” says Rhodri. “It’s only when you make your way through it that you get it. I have no time for music that doesn’t leave some sort of a mark.” And nor, evidently, does he make it.

Best known as one of several guitar players, songwriters, and vocalists in the Hoosier indie-rock band Hoops, Krauter has been making music all by his lonesome for much longer. He grew up in a family heavily involved in local musical theater, even appearing in three productions of Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

He played in high school bands, but didn’t get serious about writing and recording until he enrolled at Ball State in Muncie, Indiana. His first efforts – recorded in his dorm room — weren’t intended for any kind of audience, but a friend asked him to record a few tracks for a class project. Eventually those sessions became 2015’s Magnolia EP, a short collection of gentle, gauzy songs that reveal his early obsession with one of his first musical heroes, Vashti Bunyan.

It was his first taste of the music business, and the experience left a huge impression. I’d never put any music out under my name. I’d never put out a tape before. It all came together quickly.Krauter began recording and releasing music prolifically, first with Hoops and then on his own. The ChangesEP, released in late 2016, showcases his deft guitar playing, mixing soul-baring songwriting with bossa nova rhythms and intimately lo-fi production. It was supposed to be a low-key release, but Changes became a word-of-mouth hit that amassed a small but avid cult behindit. I didn’t think it was going to make any huge waves for me, but a lot of people told me they were still listening to it a year or more later. They were living with it, and I thought that was cool.

Deep City

Green Mind turns 18s this February and we’ve booked a stonking month of shows featuring some of our favourite bands, but for the main event we’ve done what we’ve always done and picked some of the hottest new bands to help us celebrate.

October Drift played for us in June of 2018 and blew us away. Massive walls of guitar, influenced by Mogwai as much as Joy Division, blended with introspective lyrics and earthy vocals.

“A voice for the voiceless, Louisa Roacher’s lyricism is poignant and powerful as she offers a critique on social norms and government actions, her words lifted higher by zero-gravity synth lines and psychedelic splashes of guitar. Spoken-word that borders on rap at times, Roacher performs poetry that challenges the status quo to create a sonic revolution; “how can one be free whilst one lives in pain,” she defiantly sings.” Clash Magazine

Bodega released their debut album Endless Scroll earlier this year to rave reviews from the likes of Observer, Guardian, Independent, Financial Times, The Times, DIY, Uncut and more. Recalling the rich history of New York’s musical heritage whilst keeping its sight on the future, Endless Scroll revitalizes the rock and roll vocabulary under the influence of post punk, contemporary pop, hip-hop, kraut rock, and folk-derived narrative songwriting.

Endless Scroll was recorded and produced by Austin Brown (Parquet Courts) on the same Tascam 388 tape machine used for their LP Light Up Gold.

Green Mind presents PIROSHKA (members of Lush, Elastica, Moose…)

Green Mind presents PIROSHKA (members of Lush, Elastica, Moose...)

https://www.facebook.com/piroshkaband/

Piroshka is the Hungarian for Little Red Riding Hood, and gives a subtle nod to a certain red hairdo that stood out in the 1990s Brit-guitar-pop scene. It’s also the alter ego of four notable talents – Miki Berenyi (Lush), KJ ‘Moose’ McKillop (Moose), Mick Conroy (Modern English) and Justin Welch (Elastica).

Making gorgeous bittersweet, euphoric pop that is much more than the sum of the four parts, Piroshka’s music combines physical force with sublime delicacy and lyrics that reflect the brutal times we are currently living under. The band will be making their live debut in November 2018.
