HIP PRIEST finds WILDER than your average TREASURE

Finally my sickness has subsided and despite the weather, walking into the office after a brilliant (yes brilliant!) coffee and cigarette to Reel III Arkology playing this morning has set me up for an even better day. Have been a bit neglectful of my blog of late...so many things that ive ended up not writing any of them...so here is a quick round up of a few of my favourite musical things from the past week...

Wilder

Rough Trade new signing, Wilder who hailing from Bristol are a hit of mr Blobby Pink Lemonade among a plethora of American bands making their way to invade the UK music scene this summer (Warpaint, The Drums, Glasser..you know it already) A well executed musical meeting of the physical and digital, guitars and drums mix in fuzzy melancholy with beats, synths and treatments think along the lines of The Whip, A Male version of Gossip and a touch of Velvet Underground......Its got modern twangs mixed with classic Rock and Roll.....

Treasure


















Maybe you will think me biased as i kinda know this guy, but like most of you have come to know, i wouldn't write about it if i didn't like it! Its the musical invention of Hari, a one man sampling project that started in 2009 and so expect a mixture of weird and wonderful sounds. Minimalist and woozy it'll drift you out to sea and leave you floating around in a state of contentment, wash you up on some obscure tropical shores and leave you high until sunrise....watch this space. Its guna be an over used line but its is a real Treasure...

Hip Priest


















Was lucky enough to meet the frontman of V.E.G.A.S Whores on a mini tour i did last summer, and i loved him. For one guy he has fucking bundles of energy all of which is magically channeled through his guitar and laptop to give a pretty experimental but explosive set. Sadly V.E.G.A.S Whores is no more, but rising from the ashes with even more wonderful psychedelic beats, ruptures and rifts and preaching to the world through his musical sounds is HIP PRIEST. Stand up, take note and give it a listen....
