Most drawn to the fine line between the calm & chaotic, Dream Noise duo, Medicine Boy, have conjured a sound from deep within the reverb tank, where lonesome lullabies and screeching strings find comfort in one another.
A year has past since Lucy & Andre took off on a 3 month tour of Europe & the UK, & with the release of their debut album creeping ever nearer, they assure as another adventure is in the works…don’t miss this innovative act at POP CRIMES.
Celebrating psychedelic sounds of the past & shaping spaced-out grooves of the future, SOL GEMS are in town for one night only to join the bill for POP CRIMES.
The band are currently busy recording their debut album & “trying not to lose their minds”.
Don’t miss ‘em. They’re fire.
Thor Rixon experiments extensively with live and electronic sound production. RIXON makes use of interesting and often strange acoustic instrumentation to capture unheard sounds and soundscapes in his productions and musical compositions. His live performances are always fresh; with an emphasis on deep and rolling dance music that will make any dance floor erupt, with a mixture of organic samples, insect-like high hats & clattering drums are like nothing you would have heard before.
When in contact with Rixon’s music, you will most certainly move in the weirdest of ways at POP CRIMES.
For close to three years PSYCH NIGHT, in close collaboration with VANS SOUTH AFRICA, has provided a platform for artists to showcase their weird & wonderful sights & sounds to audiences around the country. With four international tours behind their backs – namely ALLAH-LAS , BLACK LIPS, NIGHT BEATS & GOLDEN ANIMALS – they assure us “The best is yet to come. Soon(ish).”
They’ll be spinning some of their favourite records, setting the tone – and the drone – for POP CRIMES.
