Two examples of what MELTING VINYL has to offer this autumn
Melting Vinyl founder Anna Moulson should be awarded the keys to Brighton for her sterling work bringing upcoming and contemporary bands and niche/cult artists to our region. Here are two examples.
On 16th October at St George’s Church, Brighton, Erland Cooper will be performing music exclusively from across his Orkney repertoire on a meditative, ‘magical and moving’ journey though the Scottish Highlands, its folklore, myth and mythology.
His work combines field recordings with traditional orchestration and contemporary electronic elements. Through music, words and cinematography he explores identity, memory, and place. His support is synthesist Hinako Omori.
And the 3rd of November sees This Is The Kit, aka contemporary folk musician Kate Stables and her band, perform at Folkestone Quarterhouse, with support from The Magic Lantern, the musical moniker of singer-songwriter Jamie Doe.
Long-time favourites of BBC Radio’s Lauren Laverne, Cerys Matthews and Radcliffe & Maconi, This Is The Kit have also recently appeared in the BBC One television series Wanderlust. This Is The Kit includes members Rozi Plain (bass/vocals), Jamie Whitby-Coles (drums) and Neil Smith (guitar) and speaking about her band Kate says “they’re three of my favourite musicians, and what they do with their separate projects and what they bring to This Is The Kit is brilliant”.
