Music Montag: MOON WHEEL

by James Glazebrook

The biggest surprise about 65daysofstatic’s recent Berlin date was the stand-in support act, MOON WHEEL.The magnificently bearded knob-twiddler rattled C-Club with bass-heavy, expansive synth workouts that got the collected music nerds’ heads nodding.

What WHEEL himself describes as “music for contemplative listening, relaxation and dancing, inspired by nature, history and wandering” sounds to these old ears like a cross between primitive acid house, Howie B-style trip hop and the interstitials between Pink Floyd tracks. I recommend you start with MOON WHEEL’s Boiler Room set, before digging into his Berlin Community Radio show, The Journey. Full deets about this curious artist can be found at moonwheel.org. Enjoy your trip.

Music Montag: 65daysofstatic

Another year, another slew of great albums celebrating ten (and twenty) years of existence and making us feel really, really old. But one took us totally by surprise as it still sounds like it was made yesterday; the incredible debut album from 65daysofstatic, The Fall Of Math.

The Sheffield four piece* are commemorating in style this spring by playing the album in its entirety across Europe. And, as if that wasn’t enough, they will follow this with a second set of songs selected from the remainder (math!) of their extensive discography. Stuff like:

Bonus-instrumental-post-rock-experimental-math-gasm!

Joining 65dos on tour are fellow guitar pedal abusers Thought Forms. Having recently signed to Invada Records, this scuzz rock trio have just released a split with Esben And The Witch, ahead of a third album proper this year.

This perfect evening of quiet-loud-heavy-quiet-loud is at C-Club, Columbiadamm 9-11, 10965 on Wednesday from 8pm.

*Why are all the bands we like from The North™?!
