Grout Presents : EDIE, Neil MacLeod & Him

We're lucky enough to have a visitor from Wellington swing by The Backroom on her way to Sigur Ros while she's in Auckland. EDIE began as the solo project of vocalist/producer Anna Edgington and has recently has been joined by drummer Thomas Friggens to put out some pretty exciting new tunes just for you. Soaring vocal lines. Agitated beats. Trip hoppy dream pop and maybe, if you're lucky, Chris Isaak cover. It's good shit.

EDIE - Last Wish -

We've got TWO out of town-ers this week with Neil MacLeod also making the trip up from Welly. He's gonna tear up the ivories and your heart strings to boot, this boy. A wicked songwriter and a real treat.

Neil MacLeod - City Scapes (Live) -

And for the locals, why don't we get the current #1 artist on 95bFM in the mix (!). Him is an experimental folk artist who brings together a visceral and haunting performance with electrical meanderings, looping, guitar, voice and other instruments to draw a scene most mysterious, bold and watery. And did we mention they're #1 on bFM' Cool eh'

Him - Crack Pipe:

And look we all know this is short notice, but what else is there to do on a Thursday night. Come on down.
