Panopticon feat. White Hills & Pontiak

...

Capsule are partnering with Flatpack Festival to present a Saturday night knees-up is that promises to be a psychedelic phantasmagoria. As well as welcoming two of North America’s finest proponents of mesmeric wig-out music, we’ll be plastering the walls of the festival hub with a visual stew of super 8, oil wheels and kaleidoscopic trickery (as if four days of Flatpack weren’t disorientating enough). Plus guest DJs including Grindi (Club Unlikely) and off to one side a rolling programme of shorts from the far side of the moon.

One of the stand-out acts at last year’s Supersonic, Brooklyn four-piece WHITE HILLS produce an almighty, fuzzed-up space-rock noise described by Julian Cope as “straddling a wide sonic rift valley, with references that stretch from the southern latitudes of Spain’s Viaje A800 to the northern majesty of Black Sabbath and Harvey Milk via the Doors.” They’ll be preceded by PONTIAK, three brothers from rural Virginia with a distinctive, swampy take on blues and Americana.

‘Burning’ – Mogwai film screening with Capsule & Flatpack Festival

...


Early last year Scottish post-rockers Mogwai were filmed during their residency at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. The resulting document is directed by Nathanaël Le Scouarnec and Vincent Moon, known for some of the best music videos of the last couple of years (including Moon’s work on The Take-Away Shows, short impromptu performances by bands on French music website La Blogotheque). Shot over three nights, this black and white film captures the beautiful intensity of Mogwai’s performances.

 

The screening will be introduced by Stuart Braithwaite from Mogwai, and will also include a selection of videos from the band’s Rock Action label as well as five recent promos by French collective Megaforce.
