Mute Records’ Liars have, since their inception in 2000, spent over a decade honing their expertly executed electronic dance-punk. Their constant focus on rhythm and texture over more obvious elements is perhaps shown best on their recently released and already critically acclaimed seventh album ‘Mess’. They come to Jabberwocky for an exclusive UK set for 2014.
With last years slice of reflective slice of genius ‘Wakin’ on a Pretty Daze’ proving to be one of the undisputed highlights of 2013, Kurt Vile & The Violators return to the UK for a set of the warm slacker-pop that Kurt has perfected since his 2008 debut ‘Constant Hitmaker’. He is a perfect addition to the Jabberwocky lineup.
As a founding member of Animal Collective gone solo, Panda Bear’s experimental, reverb-soaked brand of heavily percussive and psychedelic dream pop has placed him as a heavily influential modern musician in a genre that can be far too lacking in originality. His upcoming studio album, tentatively titled ‘Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper’, is sure to be as progressive as ever.
Formed in Cleveland, Ohio Cloud Nothings have spent the last five years peddling their inventive and damn catchy brand of noisy indie-rock. With emphasis equally on melody and noise, upcoming Wichita Records album ‘Here and Nowhere Else’ is an early contender for highlight of the year.
Having produced remixes for an insanely eclectic lineup of acts including The XX, José James, Boys Noize, Moderat and even sometime Flaming Lips collaborator and pop starlet Ke$ha,Untold is a name that all should be familiar with. Full-length album ‘Black Light Spiral’ is ready to drop imminently and proves Untold to be one of the UK’s freshest and most interesting young producers.
LA feedback obsessed experimental rap trio clipping. fuse walls of static with a fierce sense of anti-everything wordplay that brings to mind fellow noise terrorists Death Grips. This is caustic, kneejerk hip-hop not to be overlooked.
Those with the foresight to catch Big Ups’ first trip to the UK earlier this year witnessed one of the most vital, snotty and visceral punk shows in recent years. Coming across as the bastard children of Fugazi and The Jesus Lizard, their debut album ‘Eighteen Hours Of Static’ throws the snarling observational lyrics of frontman Joe Galarraga together with the uneasy, tense backing of the rest of the group to create one of the most original albums of last year.
Probably best known as the guitarist for Dirty Three and his endeavors in the world of art, Australian musician Mick Turner’s distinctive style has seen him back up the likes of Cat Power and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy. He will be returning to ATP having performed at the last Camber Sands weekender with last years ‘Don’t Tell The Driver’ album in tow.
