Green Mind 18th Birthday: OCTOBER DRIFT + Deep City + special guests

OCTOBER DRIFT
Deep City

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

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.

“Why: Rhythmic and emotive, the latest track from German producer/composer Josin is truly enveloping. Crafting a sound that is both intense and seductive, ‘Feral Thing’ swirls and sways through its five minute running time. Building with consideration and an adept subtleness, the song flowers into a melancholic and, frankly, beautiful piece of steadily expanding delicateness.” Overblown.co.uk

“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.

Green Mind presents MINI MANSIONS

Green Mind presents MINI MANSIONS

https://www.facebook.com/MiniMansions/

Works Every Time’ finds the band in their prime – open, honest, and full of real tangible emotion but counterbalancing those feelings with musically fun songs. The single is infectious, with dark cool sounds layered with zingy guitar work and Parkford’s love-torn lyrical confessions. Although arguably a pop hit, Mini Mansions do not shy away from the melancholic toe-tapping grit that is their staple. Of the EP’s title single, Tyler elaborates, “A lot of these lyrics are playing with the cliché of a love song,” he explains. “This is our Mini Mansions cliché.”

Following on from their critically acclaimed 2015 album ‘The Great Pretenders’, which saw the band tour with the likes of Tame Impala, Arctic Monkeys and Royal Blood, only now are the LA trio ready to unmask themselves more than ever before. Michael Shuman states on the new material “This is probably the most personal and vulnerable we’ve ever been.”
The recording of the Works Every Time EP at Hollywood’s Barefoot Recording Studios was co-produced by the band and Cian Riordan, who worked with them on their prior record, whilst Jon Theodore (Queens of the Stone Age) and Darren Weiss (Papa) tracked the drums. Dash Hutton (HAIM) will be playing live with the band.

Mini Mansions are singer and guitarist Michael Shuman (bassist of Queens of The Stone Age), bassist Zach Dawes (The Last Shadow Puppets) and singer and keyboardist Tyler Parkford.

If you asked a cross-section of people to name things that were musically naff, the Eurovision Song Contest would likely rank pretty highly across the board. If you were to then ask what qualities one would need to succeed at said venture, a lifelong love of Blur and The Breeders would probably swoop to the opposite end of the scale.

That’s likely why Amsterdam-born singer Pip Blom’s childhood dreams of competing in the cheesy pop spectacle never really got off the ground (an adolescent attempt at penning a tune with her best friend, in her own words, sucked). But TV’s loss is the indie world’s gain: now 21 and with a full band in tow, Pip’s honing a sweetly scuzzy sound that’ll trounce the competition with ease.

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult

Governments rise and fall, seasons wax and wane, fashions change, millions die and millions are born, but two things remains constant: Fonda 500 keep churning out nuggets of pop gold and vocalist and keyboard wrangler Simon Stone is still welded into a bear hat.

For the uninitiated, take Super Furry Animals sense of the surreal and way round a pop hook, the chugging guitars of Weezer and the twinkly keys of Grandaddy. Make them part of your life.
