Pie&Vinyl Presents are pleased as puppies to announce that Tooting purveyors of lo-fi fuzzed up outsider psych-pop Dignan Porch will be joining us at our home from home The Wave Maiden on Friday 20th October.

If you dig early Pavement, Blue Orchids, Syd Barrett, Beat Happening, Sebadoh, Television Personalities, Daniel Johnston, etc. we're certain you'll find much to love within Dignan Porch's melodic melancholic grooves and skewed musings on life's mysteries.

Signing to US indie Captured Tracks - home of Diiv & Mac DeMarco - they released two ace albums in 2011's charmingly no-fi ''Deluded' and 2012's more refined 'Nothing Bad Will Ever Happen' before moving to Brighton's Faux Discx - home to Cold Pumas, Hookworms, Sauna Youth - to put out the superb 'Obersvatory' in 2014.

This year has seen them embark upon a trilogy of ep releases issued digitally via Plastic Stuff. The first two - 'Golden Beak' and 'Don't Try It' - are out now and include some of their most stonking tracks yet - 'The Flood' and 'Meat Vessel' are particular faves.

'Songs that seem to teeter on the brink of collapse yet are utterly beguiling' - Q

I'd at least kill a goat for this band. It's that f****** good - VICE
'.. the best moments are when the noise and the clutter fade away and you are left with this uncertain haze, perhaps just the beat and a fuzzed out guitar, that seems to refract all this massive sadness hidden underneath the skin of everything and expose it to the brilliant daylight.' - The Line Of Best Fit

'With Observatory Dignan Porch have delivered their third and finest set of songs, the sort of reputation-founding record that ought to find space in the collections, virtual or physical, of anyone who claims to love music.' - Sounds XP

'Dignan Porch are the kind of band who don't aspire to be like the bands that influence them they seek to better them. To challenge what their idols have crafted before and push the boundaries that they defined. Fuzzy bedroom psych-pop just got revitalized, folks.' The 405

'Dignan Porch have created an unassuming, but addictive rainy-day bedroom-pop gem.' - Stereogum

Ban Summers is the new project of The Boy I Used to Be mainman Edward Perry which continues his love affair with hazy lo-fi indie pop.
