Green Mind presents HALEY HEYNDERICKX

“Loner that she is, Heynderickx tends to turn her incisive gaze inward, writing from the feelings in her heart and the visions in her head. When other people do surface in her songs, they appear almost as faceless silhouettes—like in the aptly titled “No Face,” where an aloof partner leaves Heynderickx to wonder what about her is so wrong. “Jo” names its subject, but captures her in uncertain terms, with only the tense of the lyrics suggesting that she’s no longer around. Heynderickx demurs when it comes to the specifics, instead using metaphorical language to capture Jo through the fuzzy, romantic lens of memory: Her kindness was “like honeycomb holding the bee in the folds.”

More animate are the characters Heynderickx invents to keep herself company. In her “Untitled God Song,” she imagines her creator as a vision in knockoff Coach, conjuring sunsets when she forgets to shut off her headlights. Heynderickx writes here with an expansive, inclusive understanding of feminine perfection that feels uplifting, even if the theism that frames it is inaccessible to some listeners. The specimens that populate “The Bug Collector” are among her most imaginative: a vindictive centipede, a priest reincarnated as a praying mantis, and a grumpy millipede, personified by brass voices that banter with Heynderickx’s spry guitar as she tries to remove them from her home, lest they ruin her loved one’s “perfect morning.”” Pitchfork

Green Mind presents ALTER THE SKY + One Less God + special guests

Alter the Sky are a 5 piece hard classic rock band from the Cambridgeshire area. The band draw influence from bands such as Black Stone Cherry, Alter Bridge, and the Wildhearts. They come laden with massive riffs and songs filled with hooks. AtS have been fortunate enough to have already played and secured gigs at their home towns most prestigious venues, (Junction J1, J2 and Cambridge Corn Exchange) as a result of their energetic and humorous live shows.

One Less God is the new band from Jay Williams, founding member of Cambridge legends Hofman and The Broken Family Band.  For this outing he’s powering up the amps to 11 and heading to his love of rock and metal rather than country and indie rock.

Green Mind presents LOST HORIZONS (ft Simon Raymonde - Cocteau Twins, Bella Union)  ***New date***

https://www.facebook.com/losthorizonsband/

Currently celebrating 20 years piloting his revered record label Bella Union, Simon Raymonde has scaled another personal peak, a new collaboration with drummer Richie Thomas. They’re called Lost Horizons, and their stunning debut album, Ojalá, released 3rd November on Bella Union, is a rare sighting of two gifted musicians who, for different reasons, have been largely absent from music-making for the last 20 years. Yet the record is proof of a telepathic relationship through music, established when the pair first became collaborators and friends in the eighties.

Ojalá also incorporates a heady cast of guest singers. Some are signed to Bella Union, such as Marissa Nadler, former Midlake frontman Tim Smith, Cameron Neal (Horse Thief), others are long-time favourites of Raymonde’s (Liela Moss of The Duke Spirit and Ghostpoet), or newer discoveries (Beth Cannon, Hilang Child, Gemma Dunleavy and Phil McDonnell). And then there is the incomparable Karen Peris of The Innocence Mission, one of Raymonde’s most beloved artists, in her first collaboration outside of The Innocence Mission and solo recordings.

Together, the Lost Horizons ensemble has created an hour of exquisite, expansive and diverse spellcasting, from facets of soul (‘Bones’, featuring Cannon, and ‘Reckless’, featuring Ghostpoet) to dreamier invocations like ‘She Led Me Away’ (featuring Smith) and Ojalá’s lengthiest trip, ‘The Engine’ (featuring Hilang Child). There’s the odd louder, faster detour, like ‘Life Inside A Paradox’ (featuring Neal, with Sharon Van Etten on backing vocals), but the dominant mood is a deep, rich melancholia.

Green Mind presents THE NIGHTINGALES + Near Jazz Experience + Stewart Lee ***SOLD OUT***

The Nightingales was formed by former members of Birmingham’s original punk group The Prefects. With an ever fluctuating lineup, based around lyricist / singer Robert Lloyd, the band recorded a bunch of singles, three albums and many radio sessions for John Peel before it stopped working in the late 80s.
********************************************************************
The Near Jazz Experience formed by multi-instrumentalist Terry Edwards (Gallon Drunk, The Higsons), bassist Mark Bedford (Madness) and drummer Simon Charterton (The Higsons) in the spring of 2011. Born out of a love of improvised music which was accessible (funky beats and grooves) yet experimental enough to break the mould of middle-of-the-road jamming, the trio built up a following at a residency in the heart of London’s East End, headlining the monthly Sartorial Records music nights.

Green Mind presents STEVEN ADAMS AND THE FRENCH DROPS

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

Following a few years of performing and recording solo (see 2014’s House Music and 2016’s Old Magick), Adams has a new band – featuring members of The Drink and Absentee – and a new album; Virtue Signals (Hudson Records).

“He returns with a new band and fresh intensity, particularly on the furiously Neu!-like “Ex Future” and “Free Will”
UNCUT
“National treasure has a great new band”
THE GUARDIAN
“Indie snowflake remoaners left casting about for a smart, literate purveyor of melodic indie rock should really be taking Steven Adams to their hearts”
ECHOES AND DUST

Though the band worked on the songs for several months, the album was recorded in a little over a week, in September 2017, at Half Ton Studios in Cambridge. It was produced by Ben Nicholls, (Nadine Shah, Cara Dillon, Kings of the South Seas). Adams was initially ambivalent about having a producer on board, but Ben’s head is full of music. He came to a rehearsal and started making the occasional suggestion about songs and arrangements. At first we were a bit freaked out, but everything he suggested worked. In the studio he was in charge, which was oddly liberating. The album was then mixed by acclaimed producer and engineer (and Hudson Records supremo) Andy Bell.

It’s over 16 years since Adams started making music with The Broken Family Band, generating critical acclaim with each subsequent release and maintaining a dedicated cult following ever since. So, all these years later having been called a national treasure enough times to fill a pirate’s chest, without ever having become an actual pop star why does Steven Adams still do it? “I try not to overthink it or to feel reliant on this for anything other than what it is; sounds, words, feelings, and an excuse to hang out with good people. That’s virtue signalling, in case anyone asks.”

Through four full-length albums, Dawn Landes has blazed her own path with songs that are as fresh as they are timeless. Still, there’s no mistaking that strains of Nashville reside in her voice and in her musical soul, and now, with her fifth album, Landes is finally bringing them to centre stage.

Meet Me At The River is Landes’ self-described Nashville record, and she has assured its pedigree by enlisting the production skills of Fred Foster, the Country Music Hall of Fame member who played a pivotal role in the careers of Dolly Parton, Roy Orbison, and Kris Kristofferson.

Green Mind presents LAURA VEIRS

Green Mind presents LAURA VEIRS

https://lauraveirs.com/

“It may have been five years since her last album, 2013’s Warp and Weft, but Oregon-based singer-songwriter Laura Veirs has not been idle. As well as case/lang/veirs, 2016’s collaboration with kd lang and Neko Case, she has been raising two small children and hosting a regular podcast in which she discusses with her fellow musicians the trials of juggling work and family.

Veirs’s 10th solo album is perhaps her most satisfying yet, the deceptively simple songs sketched out on acoustic guitar or piano (the lovely The Meadow is particularly minimalist) and subtly embellished by her band and producer husband, Tucker Martine. Lyrically, there’s a theme of making the most of adversity: opener Margaret Sands is a profoundly moving lament seemingly for a friend who has died, yet whose memory lives on in the sounds of the sea (“now she’s married to the swell”). There’s a dreamlike quality to it, evoking Julia Holter. Elsewhere, When It Grows Darkest looks for glimmers of hope amid the Trump nightmare, and Heavy Petals is a salute to David Bowie. Best of all is Seven Falls, on which regret-laced childhood reminiscences are set to Jon Hyde’s pedal steel.” The Guardian

“Straight out of south London and determinedly DIY, Goat Girl are feisty, furious and fearless. Their incendiary rock, with shades of mid-noughties Cat Power and Medway garage girls Thee Headcoatees, challenges everything from national apathy in to the perils of public transport on Creep on the Train. The latter features the refrain “I really want to smash your head in,” and while singer and guitarist Lottie’s vocals are delivered deadpan, the firestorm of sharp riffs, pounding rhythms and defiant bass make the anger palpable.” The Guardian

Green Mind presents KIRAN LEONARD

https://www.facebook.com/digitalsustain/

Kiran Leonard has announced a brand new album Western Culture, released 19th October 2018 on Moshi Moshi. Ahead of this, he shares its lead single “Paralysed Force”.

Kiran Leonard: “”Paralysed Force” is about how insecurities you should settle within yourself often get transplanted onto other people you know. Projecting the question towards another allows you to shirk responsibility for your own wellbeing, but all this does is suspend the issue at hand, and prolong an inevitable falling back.

“There’s also a sort of compulsiveness, a wanting to be suspended, that’s involved in it all, because sometimes it feels good not to have to think about yourself. I suppose the song’s about being caught between those two points — basically, that even if you know you’re being irresponsible (and possibly daft), there’s still a desire to give yourself up.”

The album Western Culture marks a huge sonic progression due, in part, to the involvement of his venerable live band (Andrew Cheetham on drums, Dave Rowe on bass and Dan Bridgewood-Hill on guitar, synth and violin) on record for the first time. It is also the first Kiran Leonard album to have been made in a professional studio.
