As the ominous late morning clouds drift high above the fields of south Bristol, there isn’t any better time for main stage openers Seven Colour Drive (8) to kick off the day. Maleficent and ill-boding, the distant ambiance that these local Bristolians conjure swells and swirls before breaching with magnificent force, the sonic equivalent of forewarning winds that suddenly crescendo into a devastating hurricane. Whilst not by any...

One of the acts responsible for Holy Roar’s recent trailblazing run of success, Yohkai stage openers Boss Keloid (7) present their progressive and dense melting pot of psyched uber-sludge to the early arrivals. With a set primarily composed of material from Melted On The Inch, the fashion in which the Wigan collective present a genre typically perceived as inaccessible to those unacquainted is universally appealing to thos...

Goodness me, we’re only a short number of days away from the incredible alternative and contemporary music celebration that is ArcTanGent. This time next week we’ll (hopefully) be basking in the late summer sun getting our collective minds blown by some of the best experimental music and artists available. With that in mind, here’s part two of our top 10 bands to see at the festival next week.

And thus, we enter into August, the final month so summer, and ultimately, the impending end of this year’s festival season. Boo. However, on the other hand, we’re now only a few weeks from the world’s best experimental and contemporary music festival, ArcTanGent. Sat atop the scenic Mendip hills between the dates of 16th and 18th of August, the festival focuses on presenting the best of what post-rock, math-rock and contemporary...

Apologies for getting all existential at the beginning of a review, but the way we perceive the passing of time is a funny old thing. If you were to ask anyone to recall the year 2008, the general conscious would be that it the year only feels several years ago, and not entire a decade ago. Whilst the year 2008 was responsible for a range of global events, the time frame also saw the birthing of the Herefordshire post rock outfit Talons. Througho...

Contrary to popular belief, operating a full time music endeavor isn’t the most easy or practical thing in the world. It’s time consuming, a money pit and most crucially of all, requires monumental amounts of effort. With that in mind it’s no surprise that many emerging acts can’t fulfill their dreams due to the practicalities and restrictions that life places upon all of us. It’s a sad reality, with many a promising talent being subdued to exter...

ArcTanGent, the festival that just keeps on giving. Despite announcing the likes of Leprous, Anathema and Toska only last month, the festival has also announced another 9 acts for the festival, as well as a very special additional set from one act already confirmed. 

Joining the already stacked lineup today is Danish composer and recent Golden Gods winner Myrkur, experimental DIY duo Cassels and noise and math tinged grungers Soeur. Also...

Opening proceedings whilst commendably single handily representing the local experimental scene is the one-man project Steve Strong (7.5). Reserved to behind the drums whilst also on guitar and bass duties, Strong is a single arsenal of creativity, relying on relays and loops to create dynamic and innovative soundscapes that begin skeletal in nature prior to evolving into multi-layered complications. It’s truly a unique performance with Strong co...
