Dumb Angel

Dumb Angel, a supergroup of veteran Saskatoon, Canada musicians and inner-space explorers led by singer-songwriter Shaun Mason, will be releasing their highly anticipated fifth album Dumb Angel in fall 2018. The group's sound has evolved dramatically since 2006’s Ghost Dance from Nick Drake-inspired folk to the shimmering full-band voyages reminiscent of “Dennis Wilson jamming with Wish You Were Here-era Pink Floyd” on kaleidoscopic display with the new album.

Recorded and produced by S.J. Kardash (Shooting Guns, Sheepdogs, The Deep Dark Woods), Dumb Angel follows up 2015’s Broken Glass and takes the group’s mix of sun-kissed psychedelia and confessional lyricism to new heights. Meditative, drifting songs of longing and loss carried by layers of spaced-out vocal harmonies, swirling washes of guitars, dazed pedal steel, and luminous Rhodes keyboard all combine to recall “Mojave 3 and Spiritualized at their most joyous” (Line of Best Fit).

www.dumbangelmusic.com/

Praises

Praises is the inner monologue of Beliefs co-front Jesse Crowe. Within this project is the personal struggle, the quiet conversation, the love and the loss and the lessons that can’t live in the public forum of a full band. With influences from Nick Cave to Portishead, Praises pull from both a masculine and feminine struggle.

Praises have released two EP’s via Toronto record label, Hand Drawn Dracula (Beliefs, Dusted, Holy Fuck) and is set to release her first full length, titled In This Year: Ten of Swords in the fall of 2018. The LP was self recorded by Crowe, Co-produced and mixed by Josh Korody (Dilly Dally, Caspar Skulls, Beliefs). Praises is currently travelling as a two piece in and are structured around string synth, guitar, piano in a live setting.

Green Gardens

Leftfield rockers Green Gardens, the result of a chance Leeds jam, embody an impromptu spirit. With funky riffs and exhilarating choruses, Green Gardens are as much a vehicle of energy as they are an outlet of true expression. Darker themes simmer behind the facade of a smiling four piece in a mixture of old school and current influences.



For Fans of Pulp, Belle & Sebastian and Bowie.

Cat Una Live at Northern Guitars

Nov 23, 9:00pm - Nov 24, 12:00am

Northern Guitars Cafe Bar
41 Call Lane
Leeds,  LS1 7BT Map

​"CAT has a voice that will sing you to sleep and then stab you in the heart”…” With that comes a whole new sound that is reminiscent of the smooth band you would find in a 1920’s smoke-filled jazz bar; and it’s a breath of fresh air against the hoards of alternative-indie bands that dominate the Leeds music scene.

Following on from recently supporting the BBC 6 Music favourite Tom Williams on tour, Cat Una has released three e.p.'s on Monomyth Records and in turn gained support from BBC Introducing resulting in a live session of her own as BBC Introducing’s Artist of the week June 2018.

We are happy to welcome back The Blind Dead McJones Band for a night of dirty Rock'n'Roll and swilling booze, the last is optional ... but recommended

Blind Dead McJones was never a fan of being in the spotlight, no number 1 singles, cheesy videos or appearances on celebrity cooking programmes. A true Bluesman in every sense of the word, living a life on the road shrouded in mystery. Some say he died years ago in an agriculture related accident, some say he is part of the keyzer soze family and some say he now makes Halloween costumes for dogs. One thing we know for sure is he is responsible for bringing together the blues rock behemoth that is The Blind Dead McJones Band.

Pink Peg Slax Live at Northern Guitars

Dec 22, 9:00pm - Dec 23, 12:00am

Northern Guitars Cafe Bar
41 Call Lane
Leeds,  LS1 7BT Map

We are happy to welcome back the mighty Pink Peg Slax to Northern Guitars over the festive period!

Pink Peg Slax have been writing, recording and performing literate, original rockabilly more or less constantly since June 1980. The original line-up included the Mekons’ Jon Langford. The Slax went on to record 3 John Peel sessions and the records received 5-star reviews in the 80s music press. Ever-earlier day-time Radio One airplay did not deliver the success it promised, but the Slax have pressed-on. In 2012 they released a best-of CD Rock-A-Beery Boogie and later in 2018 they will release an EP titled Ear-Busting Twang.

The Pink Peg Slax approach to original music is part camp pastiche and part dedicated homage to Sun Session country and rockabilly, with Cajun fiddle and Hank Williams regret poking its nose in. Though we throw in Elvis favourites in the live shows, the songs are studded with literary references and the trinity of Slax obsessions: death, decay and the consequences of drink.

‘Svarc is one of the few guitar players I’d be happy to just sit and listen too for hours. He’s constantly inventive and a true inspiration to work with as a musician. One of my favourite guitar players. Ever.’ - Scott Devine

‘Joseph is a vibrant singer and with a voice that excels in many genres. He delivers commanding performances with and without his guitar, and the repertoire he covers is an eclectic mix of new and old. Experienced for his age, he brings a subtlety to the songs he plays whether they be covers or his original material.’
