The Tidal Wave Of Indifference has decided to branch out and put on its first live event.
The site is always a great read, and is one of my favourite Scottish music blogs, so it was no surprise to see such a stellar line up assembled.
If you like your music to be of the folk variety then this will definitely be the gig to head to on Saturday, and there are also rumours of free sweeties.
The Tidal Wave Of Indifference Presents takes place at The Wee Red Bar in Edinburgh on Saturday 24th September, and tickets are only £6. It’s quite an early finish so make sure you get down early!
Star Wheel Press (9.30-10.00)
The debut album from Aberfeldy’s Star Wheel Press was named album of the month for June by Team Avalanche and The Life Cycle of a Falling Bird has been practically flying off the shelves down at the Grassmarket. With endorsements from Ian Rankin, Lauren Laverne and more, the band are influenced by Bon Iver and Midlake and have built their sound around Irishman Ryan Hannigan’s languid storytelling and Craig Milton’s sparse banjo and guitar playing. I’m absolutely cock-a-hoop to have them involved.
French Wives (8.45-9.15)
After a series of successful EPs, packed shows and being named the inaugural winner of the Radar Prize, French Wives are in the middle of recording their debut album with producer Tony Doogan (Belle and Sebastian, Mogwai, Teenage Fanclub) set for release later in the year. Also named as ‘one to watch’ by Drowned in Sound, the Wee Red Bar will be the perfect showcase for their upbeat, classically Scottish songs, before their inevitable push into the big league.
The Douglas Firs (8.00-8.30)
Former Jesus H. Foxx man Neil Insh released the Douglas Firs debut album, Happy As a Windless Flag, a six year labour of love, earlier in the year but is wasting no time in recording a follow-up with a full band in tow. If the new material is half as good as the likes of I Will Kill Again or the Shadow Line, we’re in for a huge treat come September.
Lost Telegrams (7.20-7.45)
Opening the event will be Edinburgh’s latest exciting alt-folk prospect, Lost Telegrams. Currently looking at recording an EP, the band hope to have it ready by the time they take the stage at the Wee Red. Still in their infancy as a band, I’m tipping them for big things and are delighted to have them on board.
