Dear all, I’m booking some dates for BODUFF SONGS + JESSICA BAILIFF. Availability: between 13th and 17th May Territory: Belgium + Luxembourg BODUF SONGS Although initially recorded at home as preliminary demos for Kranky, the good folk at the label saw that there was a special something contained within the guitar, violin, toy piano, field recordings and computer compositions produced by Mat Sweet (aka Boduf Songs) that they feared could be lost in a more formal, re-record set-up. And you know what? I think they were well on the money. With a low-key charm that is only accentuated by the hissing state of the self-titled debut, ‘Boduf Songs’ is a consummate straddling of the singer-songwriter/home recorder/psychedelic boundaries. Intimate without becoming overbearing, songs like ‘Claimant Reclaimed’ and ‘This One Is Cursed’ share a predilection with Elliot Smith, Matt Elliot and even Adem, taking a hushed approach to songwriting which belies a concealed intensity. Sketchy in the most complimentary fashion imaginable, ‘Boduf Songs’ closes with the string pepped ‘Vapour Steals The Glow’, proving that you can be quietly epic without a six-figure budget propping you up. The musical equivalent of a friendly whisper. Highly Recommended. JESSICA BAILIFF Jessica Bailiff is an American singer-songwriter from Toledo, Ohio. Her music is largely classified as slowcore, although it contains elements of post-rock and shoegaze.[1] Bailiff was discovered by Low’s Alan Sparhawk, who recommended her earlier demos to Kranky Records, the label on which Bailiff later recorded.[2] Bailiff collaborated and released records with acts such as Odd Nosdam of anticon. and cLOUDDEAD fame, Low’s Alan Sparhawk, Dave Pearce of Flying Saucer Attack, Casino Versus Japan, Rivulets and Annelies Monseré amongst others. I hope to hear from you asap. Have a nice week-end. Alain Some Noise asbl C/O Alain Bolle PO BOX 43 1050 Brussels 5 Belgium
