School Of Languages

Rounding up the latest gig news…

A solo David Brewis, sometimes of Field Music, is to bring his new LP under the alias School Of Languages (pictured), ‘Old Fears’, to a series of live shows chiming with its release via Memphis Industries on 7 Apr.

Moving off that same day with a date at Newcastle’s The Cluny, the trip reaches its end at the Deaf Institute in Manchester on 28 Apr. Check Brewis’ live listings here, and listen in on ‘Old Fears’ track ‘Between The Suburbs’ here:

Drone shamans The Warlocks, from LA, have put listings for a UK tour out in the world. It starts on 11 Mar at Corsica Studios in London, and rolls on through Glasgow, Liverpool, and Leeds, before its foregone conclusion at Manchester’s Antwerp Mansion on 15 Mar. The run – listed in full here – is in honour of the group’s 2013 LP ‘Skull Worship’, their first since 2009’s ‘The Mirror Explodes’.

More concisely, Dean Blunt of possibly-dead pop mystics Hype Williams has confirmed a solo date on 1 Apr at London’s Café Oto. It’s a ‘FREE JAZZ’ set, apparently, which might mean anything, really, because that kind of ‘secrecy’ is the Hype Williams way. And while we’re on topic, Dean has released a new mixtape, titled ‘Skin Fade’ and featuring singer Joanne Robertson, which is free to stream as you please here:
