Vegetal Noise

Thot is an rather impetuous indie band based in Brussels. They usually serve a good dose of heavy rock mated with some electronics. But like everybody else, they have a softer side, which they explore on their latest single The Hour Speller, played Live at Radio Campus here:

They will play in full rock'n electro stylee in Brussels on the 24th of Feb at the Live Music Café - it won't be for the faint hearted, their live reputation precedes them so make sure you're ready for some action...

Check their blog to try a slice of their Vegetal Noise Music.

Faris and his Cats Eyes

I've been lucky enough to hear some of the music written and recorded by Cat's Eyes. First EP will be out in Feb via Polydor and the full album will reach us a bit later. The good news is that there will be a European tour as well.

Who or what is Cat's Eyes?: it's Faris Badwan, leader of The Horrors and Rachel Zeffira.
There is a teasing website and Pitchfork will have exclusive footage of the duo's first live the Vatican, no less.

I seriously can't wait for Cat's Eyes music to be out there because I really really enjoyed what I heard. And I also can't wait to talk about it with you. It's very different from what he does with his 'day band', yet there is continuity...

Faris will be a busy boy as there is also a new Horrors album in the pipeline. Hooba!

Anna Calvi

If you have nothing to do on February 2nd, there is only one destination: Le Botanique.
Anna Calvi will come and play her first output on Domino, a self titled album that hits the stores today.

She has that sort of voice and style that people will either love or hate and she clearly sounds 'different' which is no bad thing.
Her music is orchestral yet sparse, dark but strong, girly and masculine at the same time.

I can't wait to be surprised by Anna Calvi on stage so see you on Feb 2nd

If you want to know more about Miss Calvi Domino Records has everything you need
And if you want to buy tickets for what promises to be a fabulous night out, here's the link to the event on the Bota website

Speak to you very soon
