Barn Owl always present a powerful and immersive experience in their live shows. Frequently playing in front of modified super 8 footage, the twin guitars of Evan Caminiti and Jon Porras intertwine instinctively, equal parts slow-burning twang and spaced-out feedback drone. Having performed at Supersonic in 2010 and 2011, we are very pleased to invite Barn Owl back, this time in the stunning setting of St Paul’s church.
Grumbling Fur is Alexander Tucker and Daniel O’Sullivan (Ulver, Miasma and The Carousel of Headless Horses, Guapo, Mothlite), who together concoct a potent brew of doomy psychedelia, interspersed with blissful krautrock, all the more striking when pulsing rhythms and haunting melodies emerge. With releases on cult labels Aurora Borealis and an acclaimed Latitude Session for Southern Records, the duo have a new album poised for release in 2013.
Ex Easter Island Head are a Liverpool-based ensemble composing and performing music for solid bodied electric guitar, percussion and other instruments. Performing as a duo, trio, quartet and in a variety of large ensemble lineups, Ex-Easter Island Head make music that utilises repetition, droning amplified strings and extended guitar techniques that is frequently compared to the likes of Steve Reich, Rhys Chatham and Brian Eno. In 2013 they will release their third record, Mallet Guitars Three, on Low Point records.
