Dear all,

I am booking one date only for this amazing trio:  DAVID GRUBBS/ANDREA

One open date only for Belgium on 8th June 2013.

Although Onrushing Cloud is the first recording by this trio, Andrea Belfi
(drums, percussion, electronics), David Grubbs (electric guitar, voice,
piano) and Stefano Pilia (electric guitar) share a common bond in that
they've all released solo works via the Swedish label, Hapna. On this
album Grubbs and Pilia combine instrumental forces while Belfi sets out a
backdrop of highly sensitive percussion and electronics. The outcome is a
single, half-hour, flowing body of work that's indexed into five distinct
tracks. After minimal beginnings that string together loose guitar pitches
and light, jostling percussive noises, the album settles into a kind of
slowed down, soft-focus post-rock sound during the latter stages of
'Hermitage', leading into an absorbing and distinctly more abstract
electronic section during the Belfi-dominated 'Nitrate Out', featuring all
manner of subtle electroacoustic trickery and clever rhythmic
manipulations. You might find yourself reminded of The Necks' brand of
avant-jazz during album centrepiece, 'City Rats On Mountain Pass', only
for Grubbs to dramatically switch the tone by firing up his larynx for the
excellent esoteric rock droner 'Onrushing Cloud'. After all this, the
album draws itself to a close with the trio channelling their energies
into ten minute finale 'Lightning Vault', forming awkwardly beautiful
shapes by throwing together fuzz-strangulated guitar drones, martial drum
patterns and delicate, fractured electronics.

I look forward to hearing from you asap.
