Green Mind presents EEVAH + The Budapest Tapes

Leeds based band EEVAH began 2019 in the form of a classic 80’s electro pop duo, weaving etherial guitars and catchy pop hooks around epic synths and pre-programmed beats.

BLUE BENDY *cancelled*

Building on the momentum of their 2022 EP “Motorbike” Blue Bendy are stretching out into vast new sonic terrain. Their following two singles “Mr Bubblegum” – a joyously intricate piece of experimental guitar pop – and the frenetic, propulsive yet incredibly deft sprawl of “Cloudy”, saw the band reach new heights creatively. Of the former, The Guardian enthused: “indie is riddled with addled, verbose frontmen right now, but none so rapturous as Blue Bendy’s Arthur Nolan: here he dances all over splayed post-rock and micro-cataclysms”.

Having toured as main support for Squid and Cola as well as playing packed out tents at festivals like End Of The Road and Green Man, Blue Bendy have struck a balance between being obviously skilled musicians, writing complex, layered, overlapping and ambitious compositions, while also utilising space, breadth, and restraint. Their music is bursting with dynamism, exploring push-pull dynamics that results in something ceaselessly unpredictable.

It results in a sound that is rare for a new band: as experimental as it is confident and assured, as tender as it is visceral, as quiet as it is loud, as bloody as it is teary.

Local Hotels +Ember Rev
May 10 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm

Local Hotels
With a driving rhythm section, spiky guitar, shards of keys and mesmerising vocals, Local Hotels play an exhilarating blend of post-punk electro rock you’ll never forget. Devilishly enigmatic frontman Bryan is your guide through dark romantic nights, golden monkeys, magic humans and more. Let him take you there.

Ember Rev
Ember Rev play seamless sets of rhythm-driven art-rock, reworking and repurposing familiar forms that recall the percussive Africana of Talking Heads and the accordian-led romance of Arcade Fire. Alternately rattling with glockenspiels then looping and stuttering, it’s a sound that demands you keep coming back.

Green Mind presents MEMORIAL
Jun 10 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Green Mind presents MEMORIAL

Memorial is a project rooted in friendship, one fuelled by unflinching honesty. Ollie Spalding and Jack Watts were friends first, and song-writing partners second, and this quality sets them apart. They’re marked by that peculiar alchemy when two voices become one, a special sense of human connection wrought through harmony and emboldened with experience. New album “Redsetter” is their coming-of-age moment: gilded indie-folk with an optimistic sense of maturity, it dares to look towards the light.

“We had literally no idea what was gonna happen!” Ollie gasps when looking back on the pair’s self-titled debut album. Sculpted over the pandemic and released on Real Kind Records – the boutique Communion imprint chaired by Lucy Rose – the record displayed their core values. “The emotion has to be right,” says Oliver. “When we record songs, we want to stay true to the emotion – as though those songs had just been written seconds before they were recorded.”

Green Mind presents ROBYN HITCHCOCK (acoustic)

With a career now spanning six decades, Robyn Hitchcock remains a truly one-of-a-kind artist –surrealist rock ’n’ roller, iconic troubadour, guitarist, poet, painter, performer. An unparalleled, deeply individualistic songwriter and stylist, Hitchcock has traversed myriad genres with humor, intelligence, and originality over more than thirty albums and seemingly infinite live performances. From The Soft Boys’ proto-psych-punk and The Egyptians’ Dadaist pop to solo masterpieces like 1984’s milestone I Often Dream of Trains and 1990’s Eye, Hitchcock has crafted a strikingly original oeuvre rife with sagacious observation, astringent wit, recurring marine life, mechanized rail services, cheese, Clint Eastwood, and innumerable finely drawn characters real and imagined.

Green Mind presents RYLEY WALKER
Sep 25 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Green Mind presents RYLEY WALKER

Ryley Walker began his career in the early 2010s, after moving from Illinois’ provincial town of Rockford, and settling into Chicago’s independent scene. After a slew of cassette and vinyl releases, Tompkins Square put out his debut album in 2014, which was then followed up by the Dead Oceans-released “Primrose Green” a year later. His most recent album, “Course in Fable”, was released on his own Husky Pants Recordings label in 2021.

Having toured with the likes of Richard Thompson, and with a supporting slot for Dinosaur Jr. forthcoming – as well as a tremendous Bert Jansch tribute show behind him, wherein his hero Anne Briggs called him the ‘c word’ – Walker has rubbed shoulders with the very best.

While, in the past, his desire to be as great as his influences may have dogged and hindered him from bringing his own personality to his music, now, Walker’s music is undeniably his. A mix of Twitter and sobriety may be partially responsible. “Music is an exciting thing I get to do because I’m alive and well. I take every opportunity I’m given very seriously; I’ve gotta pay tribute to that by staying alive and being as good to the people who love me as I can,” he said.
