AL LOVER + [SANE]
Sunday February 10th
The Garibaldi Hotel, Northampton
Los Angeles-based producer Al Lover has spent the last several years evolving a unique approach to psychedelic and experimental electronic music. Creating a broken abstraction of what some might see as trip hop, Al uses a mix of samples, drum machines, live instrumentation, analog synthesizers and effect processing to draw out elements from the past and connect them to the future. Al goes from the 2011 garage/psych project ‘Distorted Reverberations’ – where he remixed bands such as Thee Oh Sees and Night Beats – to his upcoming exploration of synthesized kraut, dark ambient and trap, ‘Existential Everything’, out February 1st on Stolen Body Records.  Northampton’s [sane] create catchy, electronic music with a smattering of synths, samples and guitar riffs over crunchy, textured beats. Doors 8pm, free entry

KATIE SPENCER
Sunday February 10th
The Old Forge Tea Room, Cranford
Drawing on influences such as John Martyn, Roy Harper and Laura Marling, Spencer creates modern folk music which owes as much to East Riding as it does to the American greats, with striking vocals and adept songwriting.
