Grasscut + Eyes Of A Blue Dog + MooV

Part of the EFG London Jazz Festival

Sonorous: Three bands working at the edges of musical genres come together for a night of boundary-pushing, sonorous experimentation.

Signed to Ninja Tunes, Grasscut make sounds that “..keep your ears refreshed and alive” Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music. Eyes of a Blue Dog mine elements from underground electro-pop song, post-rock and an austere electronica of the kind that has roots in the experimental jazz and improvisation scene. MooV inhabit the space between jazz, classical and folk, “Something extraordinarily strange and beautiful.” (BBC Radio 1).

Grasscut

Grasscut are Andrew Phillips (music, words, production, vocals, keyboards, guitar) and Marcus O’Dair (keyboards, double bass).

“Music that isn’t quite like anything you’ve ever heard before. Music that’s constantly trying to push the boundaries but at the same time stay accessible… It just keeps your ears refreshed and alive” Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music.

Eyes of a Blue Dog

Eyes of a Blue Dog is a refreshing new collaboration between the LOOP Collective trumpeter Rory Simmons (also on electric guitar and electronic treatments), renowned Norwegian drummer and ambient electronics soundscaper Terje Evensen, and upcoming UK-based singer-lyricist Elisabeth Nygård. Together they mine elements from underground electro-pop song, post-rock and an austere electronica of the kind that has roots in the experimental jazz and improvisation scene.

MooV

MooV inhabit the space between jazz, classical and folk. “Something extraordinarily strange and beautiful.” (BBC Radio 1). Tonight they play material from recent album ‘Here’.

“Criminally underexposed” (Jazz UK)

“Riley is that rarest of birds, a genuine original, and his music is sui generis, but consistently haunting and often beautiful” (London Jazz Blog)

“Rasping blues folksong inflections … icy-breath intimacy … real warmth and passion … ” (Jazzwise)
