On May 27th Brighton based collective Moulettes, continue their journey into the alt.pop/rock/folk universe with the release of
their most accomplished album to date – ‘Preternatural.’
It was in early 2015 when reading an article in the New Scientist that lead singer Hannah Miller first starting thinking about a concept for
the new album. “I’ve always been fascinated by the natural world”says Hannah.“But this article compelled me to look deeper and start exploring all the surreal and beautiful diversity that exists. There’s so many phenomenal creatures out there we thought they deserved their own album.”Fast forward to 2016 and the result is‘Preternatural’- an eclectic but cohesive 11 track collection, which marries the thought provoking concept with elements of prog, pop, alt-folk and rock. It’s a beautifully orchestrated piece of work, experimental in parts but still accessible, fusing rich vocal harmonies, persuasive melodies, and elaborate compositions to make a genre defying album that explores the moving gaps of electronic and acoustic; DIY and big production.
Highlights include the epic opener ‘Behemooth’,a heavy, drum-driven progressive anthem inspired by a loud and unidentified sound recorded in the pacific, and electro-rock lead single ‘Underwater Painter’, which explores the way Octopus – chameleons of the sea can switch between camouflage and a psychedelic electric light show. “The solo was recorded in one take,” recalls MOULETTES.

Moulettes are a Brighton based British band of Björk, Frank Zappa and Gentle Giant loving multi-instrumentalists that weave in and out of several genres with 3 part harmony female vocals, amplified Cello, distorted Bassoon, Auto-Harp, Guitar, Drums, Bass and Synths into an incomparable alt.pop/rock/folk universe. Since the success of ‘Constellations’ (No.7 Indie Charts, Spiral Earth Best Album 2014), Bajian Irish Londoner Raevennan Husbandes has joined the band on Vocals and Electric Guitar. With this new line-up the band have made their fourth Album ‘Preternatural.’

From Medieval Latin preternaturalis (mid-13c.), from Latin phrase praeter naturam (praeterque fatum) “beyond nature (and beyond fate).” In contrast to the supernatural, the dominion of deities, preternatural phenomena are… “suspended between the mundane and the miraculous in a domain of Wonder & Marvel. Strange specimens evoke questions about the natural order…they provoke the spirit of investigation. ” ‘Preternatural’ is a word particularly subject to etymological metamorphosis, describing the phenomena that fall “between the known and the unknowable” …“recognising that the areas of magic, religion, and science are fluid and that their intersections should continue to be explored, contextualised, and challenged.”

Pie&Vinyl Presents…SPECTRES with support from Battery Hens & Gun Shy

Friday 15th July - Doors open at 8pm. Tickets available in store or via http://www.wegottickets.com/event/360946 (BRING ID.)

Spectres Drift Show poster

 

Pie & Vinyl Presents has a tasty treat for you this July. A ‘cathartic baptism in a sonic lake of unholy frequencies that will leave you acutely aware of the tenuous grip you have on mortality’ type of treat. Spectres are coming. Yum.
Hailing from the sleepy Devon town of Barnstaple the band decamped to Bristol to find an audience for their rabid noise rock / shoegaze mongrel. Taking care to maintain control on everything they put their name to they released their long awaited debut ‘Dying’ on esteemed indie Sonic Cathedral in 2015.

Meeting the challenge of its title, the album is an immersing exploration of life, death, insomnia and addiction set against a soundscape of grinding guitars, pummelling rhythms and disembodied chanted vocals which serve to soothe and scare in equal measure.

REVIEWS OF ‘DYING':

‘The stink of the corpse of rock has never sounded so good.’ – The Line Of Best Fit. 8.5 / 10.

‘Bristol noise-freaks’ debut is a deeply unsettling but utterly compelling listen.’ – NME Magazine. 9 / 10.

‘Despite the luxurious, audible excess, ‘Dying’ is a masterclass of refrain.’DIY. 4 / 5.

‘Disturbingly cathartic yet unnervingly compelling, Dying is a record that demands to be heard from start to finish.’ – Drowned in Sound. 8 / 10.

Be sure also to check out the ‘Hunger’ ep released in 2013 which as just good as anything on the album and the ‘Dead’ remix album which features new takes on the tracks from ‘Dying’ from Hookworms, Factory Floor, Andy Bell of Ride (band) and Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai amongst others. They are currently working up album number 2 and are taking time out from recording to play this one off show.

Live they deliver an uncompromising brutal performance, akin to Swans in the way build hypnotic maelstroms from the smallest of fragments before smashing them to pieces. The sound system at the The Roundhouse, Camden was given a thorough examination when they opened for Lushrecently so we expect an obliteration of the intimate confines at Drift – in a good way of course. To further increase the intensity of their onslaught they’ll be projecting visuals on the night too – they will not be Disney.

Support comes from Southsea’s own premier extreme sound alchemists & fx pedal aficionados Battery Hens. Leaders of the Southsea scene they already have 2 excellent eps under their belts and are one of the most fearsome live acts on the circuit with a sound owing as much to techno and free jazz as it does to the more familiar noise rock touch points. They are working on new material for release later this year so expect a few surprises in their set.

Opening and making their Southsea debut will be Southampton based grunge-gazers Gun Shy. Formed by former MILK TEETH guitarist Josh Bannister following his departure earlier this year, Gun Shy have already achieved a ton of exposure on the blogs and release the ep ‘First Transmission’ on Failure by Design Records on May 6th. Expect to see more from them soon. Lots more.
