Night 2 - The Reds, Pinks And Purples, Padang Food Tigers

Thursday, June 13, 19:30
adv £15.40 / sold out

THE REDS, PINKS & PURPLES is the post-indie project of Glenn Donaldson from San Francisco who releases songs like monthly postcards to a loyal following, amassing a huge catalogue of cathartic guitar pop – releasing 8 LPs over the last 5 years (on Tough Love, Slumberland). Donaldson’s hazy, melodic DIY pop captures a cinematic mood, with Donaldson referring to films like “Summer of ’42” and the influence of the classic 4AD catalogue of the 1990s. This style informs much of Donaldson’s prior and current ventures of course (The Ivytree, Vacant Gardens, and a dozen projects in between) but now The Reds, Pinks & Purples have taken the mantle, embracing this instinct for instrumental or dreamier modes of pop songwriting. The band debuts in the UK in June 2024 as a five-piece made-up of musicians from SF's thriving indie-pop underground.

PADANG FOOD TIGERS (June 13) - comprised of London duo Stephen Lewis and Spencer Grady – weave together an enchanting ambient-folk tapestry full of dreamlike reveries and poignantly real memories. Their emotive instrumental music stems from a succession of playful improvisational back-and-forths, while imbuing their more traditionally-minded tendencies with a spectral gauze and spontaneous sense of wonder, marked by traces of Ry Cooder, Virginia Astley, Scott Tuma, Supreme Dicks and Bruce Langhorne’s soundtrack to The Hired Hand.
