This great sounding Swedish duo called Wildbirds & Peacedrums are paying us a visit this week, and while they're here they plan on performing at least eleven times in NYC alone! TONIGHT (June 10th) you can catch them opening for Adem at his only area show (was Domino having a convention or something?) at Union Hall in Brooklyn....
This is the only US show in which Adem will be showcasing songs from his 3rd solo lp 'Takes' which is out Stateside Tuesday on Domino.Then W & P are going to DC to play The House of Sweden (because they're from Sweden), and then back to NY to not only play Joe's Pub, Union Hall again, and Coco66, but also to play shows in parks and on the subway and IN FRONT of Sound Fix and other places. Hey look, their new album "Heartcore" got an 8.0 (and four out of five stars).
An amalgam of clattering drums, exotic instrumentation and wild scat singing, they veer between the controlled cacophony of Tim Buckley, the playful kookiness of Mary Margaret O'Hara and Bjork at her most otherwordly. [Yorkshire Evening Post]All tour dates and videos below......
