Doors open: 9pm
MOULETTES deliver singing strings, celestial group harmonies, haunting stories, woodwind and weirdness and general rhythmic devilry: a bewitching combination which has led to comparisons with The Unthanks, Jethro Tull, Kate Bush, Pentangle and Shostakovich… But, ultimately they are uncategorisable – blending folk, classical, prog-rock and pop to create a unique sound and presence.
The band’s second album, “The Bear’s Revenge” was released on Balling The Jack Records, preceded by the single Sing Unto Me. Former Moulette, Ted Dwane, now of Mumford & Sons has returned to play double bass and sing, while other contributions come from acclaimed folk-blues songstress Liz Green, Irish flute and whistle player Ríoghnach Connolly; and virtuoso banjo-ist, Matt Menefee of American nu-bluegrass band Cadillac Sky.
Moulettes are among the frontrunners of the new British acoustic scene thanks to their sophisticated, unpredictable approach, matching exquisite female harmony vocals against complex, swirling backing featuring violin, cello and bassoon… adventurous, charming…edgy as well as upbeat.” **** Robin Denselow, The Guardian
“This delicious music is played with acoustic virtuosity…Complex and beautiful…Intriguing and unique” **** MOJO
“Divine harmonies…Orchestral folk at its very finest.” ***** Time Out
“The best music I heard [at Latitude] was by Moulettes…” The Independent
Restless indie folk band, STALKO are equally comfortable being minimal or grand. Surfacing in early 2010, their music is uplifting, destructive and mostly bittersweet. Rich and delicate vocals blend with captivating string arrangements to create haunting and poignant tunes.
Stalko have enjoyed gigging both in full live set up, including support slots for Adem and Owen Pallett, as well as hosting a number of intimate acoustic gigs. The trio are based in Malta.
The band have finished recording their debut album at Temple studios with its release slated for November 2012.VISIT EVENT PAGE FOR MORE INFO
