Music by Bergman: Mystic Braves

Mystic Braves might be rooted in the psychedelic scene of the 1960s, but the band’s moment is happening right now. Based in Echo Park, Los Angeles—home of a white-hot garage band revival of which the Braves are at the forefront—this five-piece musical sensation started out as a hobby, but for the musicians involved has become much more. They describe their music as a a blend of influence and sound that is unprecedented in contemporary music.

Their last album dued last year is ‘The Great Unknown.’ Tonight in concert at Sala Sidecar.

Favourite Gig: Steve Gunn

The initiative ‘Vida on the Road’, which was launched by the Vida Festival, to take different artists to big cities around Spain, New York musician Steve Gunn is playing tonight at Sala Sidecar. He presents his fourth album, ‘The Unseen in Between’ (2019), the latest example of his ability to update, renew and reinvent the most classic essence of rock.

Divus Julius presents…The KVB

The KVB is the nom de plume of Nick Wood and his partner Kat Day, a two-piece outfit from the UK who combine an electronic-shoegaze-industrial garage musical aesthetic with an intense visual live show. In the beginning The KVB was Wood’s bedroom project, an opportunity for him to explore different sonic textures outside of the confines of his ‘regular’ musical projects.

The KVB will perform tonight their sixth album, the follow up to 2016’s Of Desire titled Only Now Forever, at Sidecar.

 

Favourite Gig: The Coral

Since 1996 (for early adopters), and 2002, when the UK band The Coral released their eponymous first album (which wasted no time climbing the UK charts, resting at number 5). Their brand of psychedelic Rock/Folk has helped other bands to emerge within the new style. To date, the band has released eight studio sets, their last being Distance Inbetween (2016).

The Coral have releases their newest album, Move Through The Dawn and today they will play it in concert at Sidecar.

Dan Owen is made to love you

Although only 24 years old, Shrewsbury singer/songwriter Dan Owen’s soulful musical knack is undeniable. Owen became an overnight sensation after an audience member uploaded a video of him playing Bob Dylan’s ‘The Ballad of Hollis Brown’ online. With a hauntingly husky tone to his voice, and his own heart-felt lyrics to match, he is certainly one to watch in the upcoming indie-folk scene. He will `play tonight in Sala Sidecar by Cooncert.

So Long Forever Palace

The London boys Palace who have releases their debut LP So Long Forever  will play tonight at  Sidecar.

Palace sounds like a band that has always existed. Beautifully crafted and mature, their debut album So Long Forever  is sure to ascend them to the status of indie darlings. Fans of Foals and The National will especially appreciate their melancholy and unrushed vibe as well as their existential songwriting, which will stay with you long after the final play.
