Coming Up: April at The Lexington

Wednesday 1st April
Lexington Presents

“There’s a fine line between the unique and the insane, and it’s a line which Thomas Truax straddles with his chin held high. His collection of home made instruments look as though plucked straight from the mind of Tim Burton and are combined with loop pedals, guitars and lashings of imagination to create one of the most unusual and entertaining live shows you will ever see.”

The Guardian: “When he performs, it is a spectacle – the originality and seeming impossibility of what he does is much of the appeal.”

Parallel Lines/The Line of Best Fit Presents

“The buzz around Sekuoia – aka Patrick Madsen – has been fast-growing in Scandinavia since highly acclaimed performances at Roskilde Festival, Amsterdam Dance Event and Spot Festival last year. An appearance at London’s premier Nordic showcase Ja Ja Ja towards the latter part of 2014 brought further interest to the young Danish producer in the UK, topping off the year with a sold out show at London’s The Waiting Room in December.”

Tuesday 7th April
Goldenvoice Presents

“Drawing on Yo La Tengo and New Order, the songs follow a pattern, a circle describing a moment in their lives.
While stating an affinity with house music, they retain the deft melodicism for which they’ve been recognised. At home on the dancefloor but still remain refreshingly off kilter.”

Demob Happy

Thursday 23rd April
Parallel Lines

Brighton’s Demob Happy have been thrashing and growling their way into our hearts over the last couple of years with their DIY parties (they’ve played out of the back of a van and in the cobbled basement of their HQ/cafe Nowhere Man), and fearsome live shows. New track ‘Young & Numb’ steps things up another level. “Maybe you’re just young and numb,” howls Matt Marcantonio over jittery, bass and riffs to rival Nirvana’s. So far, so (brilliantly) standard. But the quartet aren’t here to play it safe. Instead, they ramp things up even further with not one but two choruses, both of which fizz out of your speakers with a raw, intense and irresistible power. Sleep on Demob Happy at your peril. – NME

Eat Your Own Ears

FEMME combines playful, avant-pop with big, beat-driven music. Inspired by sixties girl groups and the fierce femaleattitudes of figures like MIA and Debbie Harry. With her talents encompassing art, music, film, dance and fashion, FEMME has seen artists like Four Tet and David Lynch manipulate her vocals in sublime fashion in her other guise as frontwoman with Nigel Godrich’s Ultraista.
