Firstly, we’re incredibly proud to announce our new co-op with Tapetown Studio; as of this summer we’ll be working together on TAPETOWN SESSIONS – a new ‘live-in-studio’ series recorded live in the very awesome Tapetown studio here in Aarhus.
The idea is simple and inspired by legendary ‘live-in-studio’ series such as BBC’s Peel Sessions and Live Lounge, KEXP’s live sessions and NPR’s “Tiny Desk” series. From Lydhavnen, SOA and Tapetown will do sessions with bands stoppin’ by Aarhus, record, and film it, with great sound and visuals for all to see all over the world once it’s online – whatever happens, happens.
The very first act in the series is Dead Vibrations (SWE) – an astoundingly impressive quartet of Swedes who have been blowing peoples minds over the last couple of years in the Psych/Shoegaze scene. With their blend of pounding guitars, dark aesthetics, and touches of both neo-psych and classic shoegaze – these relative newcomers have already secured themselves as international favourites on the underground scene – and are on the programme for RECession festival this Friday. What a start to the sessions, and what a great addition to this years stellar RECession line-up to kick off the Fall concert season here in Aarhus.
Speaking of RECession…
