PAPER DOLLHOUSE

Dean McPhee

Magpahi

The Golden Lion, Todmorden

7.30 - 10.30pm (last train-friendly!)

£5 adv. / £6

With the recent release of 3rd album 'The Sky Looks Different Here', PAPER DOLLHOUSE continue their creeping, many-splendored metamorphosis from locked-attic lo-fi folk to neon-lit ghost-pop that captures the revered spirit of progenitors the Cocteau Twins, A.R. Kane, Broadcast and Japan. As on previous LP Aeonflower (Finders Keepers), founder Astrud Steedhouder is joined by multimedia artist Nina Bosnic, but an additional decayed-rave sheen is now added by Asher Levitas (Old Apparatus, Planet Mu).

Here, they headline a bill of Folklore Tapes alumni, whose subtle psychic explorations are ideal for the Valley's liminal setting - on the cusp of Lancashire/Yorkshire, industry/agriculture, future/past and at the meeting-point of water, land and sky.

Paper Dollhouse spin hallucinatory dream pop into sublime ambient abstraction FACT

This 'gnarly version of Enya' veers between acoustica and atmospherica but it's definitely a case of the weirder the better The Guardian

DEAN McPHEE is a Lancastrian finger-picking electric guitarist now based in West Yorkshire. His gorgeously liquid, pure-toned playing is supremely evocative of the small splendours and grand transitions of the natural environment, evinced across a serenely gripping portfolio of releases for Blast First Petite, Folklore Tapes, World in Winter recordings and his own Hood Faire imprint.

As SPACESHIP, Hebden Bridge-based Mark Williamson splices keyboard/guitar-based drone with field recordings at sites that span from seaside towns to bronze-age barrows, capturing Wyrd Albion's elusive spiritus loci.
