THE WAVE PICTURES
Prolific cult heroes The Wave Pictures are keeping up their one-release-a-year habit for the sixth year running. They will play a show at The Jazz Cafe on November 13th in support of their upcoming double album 'City Forgiveness' - due for release October 21st on Moshi Moshi Records.
The Wave Pictures formed in 1998 in the village of Wymeswold and have spent over a decade touring endlessly and perfecting their Jonathan Richman/ Smiths/ C-86 inspired D.I.Y aesthetic. They have recorded and released countless albums and EPs of their unique confessional indie-rock. The trio are regular collaborators of anti-folk group Herman Dune, have been the backing band for Darren Hayman (Hefner) and played with artists including Jeff Lewis, The Mountain Goats and Allo Darlin'.
French indie-pop group Coming Soon released their critically acclaimed debut album New Grids in 2008. Their sound has since been in perpetual evolution and mutation : they explored indie rock and folk music on their first album, went electric with their second LP Ghost Train Tragedy (2009), and ventured into electronica and pop by recording Dark Spring (2012), the soundtrack of a theatre play created by Bruno Geslin. After two years of creation and composition, they started recording a new album produced by Scott Colburn (Animal Collective, Prince Rama, Arcade Fire). They will release an EP called Disappear Here in October 2013 and the full LP in the spring of 2014. They describe the album as "an explosion of colors, a pop satori, a mix of psychedelia, insular science-fiction and esoteric kung-fu. An endless party."
