Stacked line-up featuring the best of new weird sounds from Glasgow!
STILL HOUSE PLANTS ARE A UK GROUP MADE UP OF JESSICA HICKIE-KALLENBACH, FINLAY CLARK, AND DAVID KENNEDY.
FROM A BARE BONES SET UP OF GUITAR, DRUMS AND VOCALS THEY CREATE FRACTIOUS AND SHARP MUSIC WITH A MELTING POP HEART. BRIDGING ELEMENTS OF SAMPLING, SLOW CORE, AND REPETITION THE TRIO HAVE DEVELOPED A SOUND THAT CONSTANTLY BREAKS APART AND FUSES TOGETHER AGAIN.
THEIR SECOND LP, FAST EDIT, RELEASED ON BLANK FORMS AND BISON, WAS WRITTEN AIDED BY MOBILE PHONES, DICTAPHONES, LAPTOP RECORDINGS, CONVERSATIONS, AND LIVE SHOWS, BLENDING FIDELITIES AND AURAL SPACES. THINGS SIT ON TOP OF EACH OTHER, FALL OVER ONE ANOTHER, OR CLICK INTO PLACE, WITH HEARTS ON SLEEVES AND SPIRITS IN MOTION.
NOTABLE SHOWS INCLUDE EMPTY GALLERY (HONG KONG), HYPERLOCAL FESTIVAL (WITH NTS/BRITISH COUNCIL, BUENOS AIRES), VARIOUS DIY SPACES IN SANTIAGO DE CHILE, AND A SIX-MONTH RESIDENCY AT CAFE OTO AS RECIPIENTS OF THE OTO PROJECTS UK ARTISTS RESIDENCY FUND, (SUPPORTED BY JERWOOD ARTS). 2021-2022 SEES THE TRIO TOURING EUROPE, NORTH AMERICA, AS WELL AS SHOWS IN MEXICO AND JAPAN.
THE GROUP ARE CURRENTLY WORKING ON THEIR THIRD STUDIO ALBUM.
Greater Lanarkshire Auricular Research Council provide aural consultancy, cassette based explication, applied research, and listening support. Specializing in environmental and noise, GLARC offer small scale research grants in the imaginary Greater Lankakshire area. GLARC's first open research project is entitled 'still house plants' and will begin in July 2016.
Pussy Mothers is the behaviour of a cross continental two piece from Scotland and Down Under: formed by waving not drowning.
Chasing percussions, vocal athletics and hand claps concocted into a platter of disco junk funk and early hip hop rhythms, The Number 1 EP took shape in Glasgow's tenement flats and came to life through a spaced out echo party held at Green Door Studios. It will be released via JG Wilkes & JD Twitch's iconic Optimo record label, at some point in our otherwise bleak collective future.
Infinitely un-google-able (seriously, don't try it), Pussy Mothers' weaponize reverb and delay to create Spirographs of 3D sonic space, yet for all that musical expanse, they stay grounded in the sweat and flurry of a bedroom danceparty.
Groan Vessel true to their name miss scott caruth, the chakras are shaken, the vessel is open.
