Michael Feerick (Amusement Parks On Fire)
We are absolutely thrilled to announce the return of ethereal wizard Michael Feerick to Edinburgh. His last gig here in October of last year blew our collective socks off - he will return again on the 11th July to play fare a little different from the otherworldly sonic bombast of Amusement Parks On Fire. This will be an acoustic set from the frontman of my favourite band - stripped back, bold, vulnerable, but showcasing the same incredible songwriting and angelic voice as ever. Shoegaze alive. This is not one to be missed.
Now Wakes The Sea
AKA Alan McCormack, Now Wakes The Sea will make his first Edinburgh appearance at the Banshee. This year’s debut album Fluoxetine Morning is one of my absolute favourite records of 2012 so far, a creepy, lingering lo-fi cut of central belt miserablism. Self-described as ‘post-solipsistic neo-folk, I’d be tempted to leave it at that had Song By Toad not written thus - “An absolutely fantastic record. For all the noise and ambience employed, it is still an album defined by its songs, and for all the morose themes explored it still feels like an album defined warmth and caring, and by its relationship with others, rather than just itself.” Quite.
Fresh from their debut gig in April this year, Edinburgh’s Convex Mancave will bring a fresh dose of dark, claustrophobic shoegazing barrage to the Banshee. Fluid Radio said of debut EP ‘Atomic Blonde in E’ - “Solar-flare volume surges and steady, electronic pulses leave us pawing at our ears, while a barge foghorn crowds out an otherwise beautiful six-minute reprise of quiet echoes.”
