Black Midi
Having been together for just over a year, and having only released one single, ‘bmbmbm’, through Dan Carey’s label, Speedy Wunderground, Black Midi have made a name for themselves in the UK for being ‘the best new band in the UK that no one knows anything about’ (NME 2018). bmbmbm’ sold out its 300 copies almost instantly and had to be taken to repress within the first week.

Their minimal online and press presence has caused the music world to gravitate towards them and their incredible live shows. They recently had a sold out headline show at Electrowerkz and have a fast-selling UK tour in January planned. Their insoluble mix of electronic, hardcore and math rock married with their uncompromising youth gives them a wisdom beyond their years, and a sound that feels beyond this world. Black Midi are a band impossible to put your finger on, but equally impossible to ignore.

LXV is the most recent project by Philadelphia producer David Wesley Sutton. Using the LXV project Sutton spatially arranges processed voices, digital fragments and fractured synthesized and sampled media into virtual sound environments and complex rhythmic contraptions that imbue existential inquiry, the universality of consciousness, and the expressions and compulsions of the human condition within the modern landscape.

LXV has been described as ''Sleek jagged contraptions, reflect virtual utopianism... Sonics with a tangibly and refreshingly different grain- cold, clear, uncompromising and pretty exquisite'' -- (Adam Harper, WIRE Magazine). "Concisely and evocative, as opposed to materiality... perfectly complementary exploration of the spirit-mind" (Sonia Garcia, Noisey) Early in 2019 LXV released "Payload" a full length of sounds inspired by the mutability of information as well as outsider music and sound art.
