SBD presents: MAGIC WANDS [USA] Friday November 3rd LA band Magic Wands bring their lovewave sound over to Europe in support of their third album 'Realms', out soon. - They have been remixed by The XX and Crystal Fighters - They have shared bills with The Kills, The Horrors, The Black Keys and many others PRESS: "Mixing elements of gothy post-punk and ethereal psych (with no shortage of hooks), their sound might best be described as witchy" - BrooklynVegan the Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg of glacial synth-pop" - The Guardian "sexy and propulsive" - Spin "['"Heartbeat"] is a five-minute dream pop tidal wave kept aloft by a snaking post-punk bassline, with vocalist Dexy Valentine coasting above it all with serene cool" - Under The Radar "a sexy, synth-y ride through outer space" - Consequence Of Sound Their second LP 'Jupiter' is our album of the month - Support from FOX CHAPEL Northampton's Fox Chapel recreate the sounds of a nowhere town. Influenced by their cassette of 'Now that's what I call post-punk 84' Fox Chapel weave gloomy new wave sensibilities into a slackers alt-rock record collection. Compared to the likes of goth fathers The Cure, Dream pop outfit Diiv and Leeds based post-punks Eagulls. Releasing their last single 'Ice Cream' at the end of 2016 playing two sold out single launch party's in Northampton and London. Fresh out of a renovated church turned studio with songs for bedroom sad boys and girls all over. 2017 looks promising for the noisy quartet. GARDEN An alternative four piece from Northampton, where groove is king. Their debut release is coming very soon. THEE TELEPATHS Psych-driven fuzz & beat four-piece from Kettering with an in-the-red sound that owes a clear debt to the metallic proto-punk rock of The Stooges & The MC5, the '80s drone-fuzz of Loop & Spacemen 3, the wonky electronics of The Silver Apples & Suicide, the mad science of Krautrock and the warped heavy psychedelia of Black Sabbath. Their new EP, Neon Spiral, came out in March on Mighty Fuzz. Four tracks that trade heavily in fuzz and drone, it's a metallic knockout, said Tender Prey. @ The Roadmender 1 Lady's Lane, Northampton NN1 3AH Doors 7.30pm
