The Spirit of Gravity Presents:
Ingrid Plum: Voice and synthesis
Yes Indeed: Fuggy, soaring & out of place
Shit Creek: Happy drone, maximalist pop-skronk freakouts
Ingrid Plum‘s new album Corporeality demands that you listen louder. Corporeality draws on the archive of sound poet Lily Greenham, and utilises shimmering sine-tone structures, intensely-grounded field recordings, and the interior of a grand piano to explore spaces amongst the oscillating layers of sound. Plum weaves together elements of voice and synthesis into embodied, intimate compositions that get under your skin and activate an interior landscape of listening.
Yes Indeed are Laurie Tompkins & Otto Willberg. Live, they play keys, bouncy bass and sing over tactile, emotive samples. The music is fuggy and soaring, deliciously out of place. On 2021’s ‘Exorcise’ EP, ratty violin, syrupy bass and foolish voices congealed over a backbone of co(s)mic spinnet and pit percussion. Boomkat rightly dubbed it “proper mad scones”. ‘Rotten Luck’ – a sodden, diaristic epic and YI’s first album proper – is out in September 2022.
Laurie is a composer, helps run the Slip label and has put out CDs on Entr’acte, 33-33 and Hyperdelia this year. Otto is a bassist, plays in groups with Ashley Paul & Charles Hayward and has an LP coming on Upset The Rhythm with his great band Historically Fucked.
Shit Creek are shimmering electronics, gleeful pulsing drone, violin screech and/or chopped-up pop songs. Join psychedelic noisenik Shit Creek on an improvised trip to euphoria town. Probably violin, guitar and some keyboards/pedals in there – it’ll start on a drone and then build
Chris [Symmetrical Forces] creates live visuals for each performance using his own lo-fi footage, dusty VHS tapes and obscure videos from the internet to create futuristic images from the past overlayed with out-of-reach memories and vague fragments of lost visions.
