"I always think they'd make a rocking 'Twin Peaks' house band!" - Alan, Kushikatsu Records
Weird and wonderful psy-fi Americana collective Low Red Moon are set to release their debut album Compañeros on Friday 15th April with a headline show at the esteemed soul and retro club The Night Owl. The new record features hit singles ‘Fluid’, ‘Here On The Moon’ and ‘St. Vitus’. Stream Compañeros here, redeem with code 9c9v-5kqd The band are a multi-disciplined collective making mostly music, but with a bit of poetry, visual and performance art thrown in. Their music is described as “Psy-Fi Americana”, a blend of psych and sci-fi, and is the culmination of the hard work and creativity of many artists. The line-up consists of (deep breath): Kaytee Thompson-DeWolfe, Gary Charles, Sean Thompson-DeWolfe, Andrew Wilson AKA Dr Magnets, Beth Walsh, Angela Cross, Olly Pilsworth, Faisal Rashid and Carla Busuttil.
Speaking of the album, frontwoman Kaytee states “Compañeros was chosen as it means companions or friends in Spanish, which we all are, and it’s also a nod to our guitarist’s love for spaghetti westerns. When we were recording the album in Wales, we woke one morning to find Dr. Magnets blasting Ennio Morricone at full volume whilst cleaning our shared kitchen, which was too cute for words. I wrote most of the songs but a couple, like singles “Fluid”, “Smoke & Mirrors” and “Full Wolf Moon” came about through jamming collectively, something we are doing more of and will continue to explore.” The experimental collective have collated a fantastic line-up of bands, DJs and spoken-word artists for what promises to be a brilliant set at the Night Owl on Friday. Support comes from Staffordshire post-rock group Arapaima, performance poet Sean Thompson-DeWolfe, performance artist Miz E. Laneous, along with live visuals from VJ Vajazzle. Also introduced on the night is a brand new club night Halligalli, presented by DJ duo Side Step 9 with DJs Ritmos De Fuego, Main Au Hasard and Lysergic Lounge playing a mix of psychedelic rock, dub reggae, zamrock, afro beat and more.
