Upset The Rhythm - MONOTONY

Upset The Rhythm presents…

MONOTONY // 7" Launch //
THE WORMS
DAS BOOTS THE CHEMIST
Monday 25 May (Bank Holiday Matinee)
Power Lunches, 446 Kingsland Road, Haggerston, E8 4AE
2pm | £5 |  http://www.wegottickets.com/event/317784 

MONOTONY are an evolving band of future humans making truly irregular punk, not quite comparable to anything else. 'Weird' is a meaningless platitude, and 'art punk' is a classifier that shouldn't be required. Celebrating the release of a split 7" on Upset The Rhythm with their sister band Sauna Youth, Monotony are set to detonate the basement of Power Lunches with their head-first primal punk. "Acquisitions, no ambition. Jumping off the balcony," they intone over the swaggering rhythm over their new song 'Luxury Flats'. In the song, Monotony come face to face with Ballard's high-rise nightmare set upon rapidly gentrifying London out of all reason. The second track on the 7", "Human Troll," is a boldly brash track lodged with sloping riffs and hollered vocals. "Human Troll lives in the river, cement mattress making him shiver!". Monotony also have some forthcoming releases on Faux Discx and 80/81 Records, so keep your ears open for those too! 
https://monotonymonotonymonotony.bandcamp.com/releases

THE WORMS are a guitar-n-drums London duo consisting of one Cold Puma and one Omi Palone. Describing themselves as "petty prannies proffering pithy punk produce", there's a straight forward, bare-bones immediacy to their solid stop/start missives.
https://soundcloud.com/the_worms-1

DAS BOOTS THE CHEMIST formed at the end of the crap year of 2014. Approaching their songs as raw statements vs intricately genius jokes, Das Boots throw some conversationally direct lyrics on top of a great pile of spindly guitar lines and bombastic drummage. Their music is a bit like punk, post punk, rockabilly, and classic rock. They often play the bits wrong and then scream because it all gets a bit you know. They write a new song during every rehearsal and then discard it because it sounds too much like a song by one of their friend's bands. Sometimes one song that only vaguely sounds like something else slips through the net and that's how they built their set up.

Slay Tracks are honoured and excited to present two of the most inspiring and talented musicians in the world,  Small Wonder and  Yohuna at Power Lunches in Dalston.

Small Wonder is Henry Crawford from Brooklyn, New York. In 2014 he released one of the best records of the year titled 'Wendy' through the brilliant Father/Daughter Records.

Yohuna is the moniker of Johanne Swanson from Eau Claire, Wisconsin via Berlin where she currently lives. As well as a handful of excellent EPs and splits, her song 'Badges' featured on Orchid Tapes 'Boring Ecstasy: The Bedroom Pop of Orchid Tapes' compilation last year.

This is an incredibly rare opportunity to see two of the best songwriters around right now. We're extremely proud to bring this really rare show to London. Have a listen to both Small Wonder and Yohuna's fantastic back catalogue:

Sonic Masala

The (un)official first Sunday of summer - get to Power Lunches and get loose.

H.Grimace - tripping between brooding contemplation, blasted anxieties and serrated distortion, all held together with spit-shined melody. I Am Material is out on Soft Power Records now -  https://softpowerrecords.bandcamp.com/album/i-am-material

Gloss Rejection - swirling in militaristic rhythms, dark-hued shadows and devilishly disillusioned. Meet Yourself Inside is out through Unwork Records now -  https://unworkrecords.bandcamp.com/album/gloss-rejection-meet-yourself-inside

James X. Boyd & the Boydoids - the centrifugal point of the night, this ex-pat Aussie enigma lives in a slipstream of his own making. The gutter punk for the muzak generation, cutting truths straight from the cheese-cloth -  https://jamesxboyd.bandcamp.com/

Majorettes - reminding us all what garage rock used to be about - leather, denim, action, noise.  https://majorettes.bandcamp.com/releases

Winnaretta - wailing trio who play loose and fast with groove, tone, harmony and sense. They play like their lives depend on it - and they still don't give a fuck -  https://soundcloud.com/winnaretta

All for a fiver - that's a pound per band!

PINKWASH

KODACHROME presents PINKWASH + GANG + more TBA

Philadelphia upstarts PINKWASH head over the Atlantic to make their UK debut this June. They'll be accompanied by exciting Brighton crushers GANG. 

PINKWASH 

Ashley and Joey crash and settle as crunchy duo PINKWASH. Ambushing you with their coarse vocals and smashing drums, they specialise in exciting immediate noise punk. Their 7" single 'Cancer Money', released on Sister Polygon this year, was a violent treat. Angry, charged and brutal it tingled in the back of your neck like a sweet case of whiplash. There's something both scaring and satisfying about the rough and fuzzy chimes of PINKWASH. Like your favourite denim jacket, just better.

https://pinkwash.bandcamp.com/

GANG

Superb craft and energy pierce out of this gnarled three piece. Their latest single 'Silverback' opens with a slamming salvo, which is then pinned back by the moaning of singer Eric Tormey, his voice dripping with feeling. The track unravels raucously, as if Tame Impala's 'Elephant' has been caught by poachers and is now ready for the black market. A blood lust ivory garage-rock classic. The ragged but assured nature of their songs, mean GANG arrive as kings in the court of their own dingy basement.

HOTGOTHIC
"That unreleased Throbbing Gristle theme tune to The Muppet Show. On speed, poppers, & too much acid. Disarmingly suave. Disorientating. Genitalia seem to be a recurring lyrical theme." -Ben Hell-
hotgothic.bandcamp.com

with  Dedwardians
"Combining a mutual respect for 50's rock'n'roll, lo-fi garage punk, with a touch of glam, The Dedwardians are punching out some hyper energetic live shows and winning accolades all over the place"

And  The Voodoo Binmen
"An explosive two-piece with searing blues riffs and snarling vocals. Uncontainable attitude collides head-on with chorus hooks full of genuine rock swagger and grit."

The Ethical Debating Society

Notes From Underground in association with  Odd Box Records present:

The launch party for "New Sense", the long-awaited debut LP from The Ethical Debating Society (released on Odd Box Records, June 2015) plus a showcase of some of the best DIY music from the UK underground scene: post-riot grrrl, queercore, indiepop, anti-folk, noisepop, post-punk and all points around and inbetween. 

This gig is also a little bit of a celebration of the UK riot grrrl legacy: most of the bands playing are directly inspired by riot grrrl, some players have been involved since the network around Riot Grrrl London/Essex at the turn of the century and others were knee-high to the first wave. The title "New Sense" comes from an essay on riot grrrl by Pete Dale (Pussycat Trash/Avocado Baby/Red Monkey/Milky Wimpshake).

*TICKETS!*: http://oddbox.limitedrun.com/tickets/12974

Jordaan Mason

Jordaan Mason is the Canadian musician behind the cult album 'Divorce Lawyers I Shaved My Head'. Their songs are beautiful and terrifying, confronting social and sexual taboos with rich imagery and lyrical grace. In over ten years of releasing music, this is Jordaan's first tour of Europe in support of their new release 'The Decline of Stupid Fucking Western Civilization'.
http://jordaanmason.bandcamp.com/album/the-decline-of-stupid-fucking-western-civilization

Manchester's  Crywank is about being absolutely honest, about being super sad and about just throwing it all out there. He describes his music as anti-folk being inspired by punk and outsider music. All of his songs are beautiful and you can listen to each of them on bandcamp:
https://crywank.bandcamp.com/

Daniel Versus The World can also be described as anti-folk, but in contrast to Crywank he'll make you leave the room with a heart filled of rage and anger, but a smile on your face of feeling not alone on this planet. His songs are about equality and love and are accompanied by beautiful piano play. He either plays solo or full band. We are lucky enough to have him with a band existing out of other well known musicians in the DIY community. 
www.danielversustheworld.bandcamp.com

Block Fort comes from Norwich and can be simply described as nerdy DIY pop punk. Super cheerful and happy, making you want to dance. Check out their video with a lot of their mates brushing their teeth. Because dental hygiene is important!

ULTIMATE PAINTING

Part of a 2 day residency.

Ultimate Painting, the duo of James Hoare (Veronica Falls) and Jack Cooper (Mazes), will release their sophomore album, Green Lanes, on August 7th via Trouble In Mind. After touring North America and Europe with contemporaries such as Parquet Courts, Twerps and White Fence, Jack and James quickly retreated to James' all-analogue home studio just off Green Lanes in North London to record the follow-up, joined this time by Mazes drummer Neil Robinson.

Green Lanes is the follow-up to Ultimate Painting's 2014 self-titled debut, also released on Trouble In Mind. Acclaimed by critics and peers, the LP felt like a breath of fresh air,  with one eye on the orange haze of the late sixties and another looking optimistically to a sparse post-digital space. Refined and economic, dreamy and quietly euphoric, it's ten songs by two songwriters at the top of their game.

BOTW are thrilled to welcome the band to perform two very intimate dates that'll showcase the new record.

Refined and economic, dreamy and quietly euphoric, it's ten songs by two songwriters at the top of their game.

BOTW are thrilled to welcome the band to perform two very intimate dates that'll showcase the new record.
