Kikagaku Moyo to headline Karma Fest in association with Far Out Magazine
Far Out Magazine will be returning to Leeds to partner up with Karma for a very special fourth instalment of the Karma All Dayer.
Eiger Music Studios will the be the venue to host the twelve long, beautifully psyched hours of music, visuals and DJ’s this summer.
With two stages planned, Far Out and Karma are excited to reveal the first eleven bands to play the event with more being teased to you when you’ve earned it.
KIKAGAKU MOYO // HELICON // TAU // OS NOCTAMBULOS // VELVET MORNING // THE RHUBARB TRIANGLE // DOMESDAY OUTFIT // GIRL SWEAT AND FRIENDS // MUSH // WILD BIRDS OF BRITAIN //
To anyone who has heard the music of Kikagaku Moyo, it should come as no surprise that the band’s origins lie in hours upon hours of late-night jamming, illuminated by nothing more than the geometric patterns playing behind the band’s eyelids, resulting in a natural, free-floating sound, as of-the-earth as it is intergalactic.
It may, however, be surprising that the band sharpened their improvisational skills by busking on the streets of their native Tokyo. Kikagaku Moyo’s overall sound may owe as much or more to the Incredible String Band as it does to Acid Mother’s Temple. As you’ll see, of course:
TAU (Members of Dead Skeletons)
TAU is the new collective project formed by Shaun Mulrooney who has been a member of Dead Skeletons and invisible man with Berlin ‘kraut’ rockers Camera over the last four years and, sounds, a bit like this:
“Doom-mongering behemoths of psychedelic rock” from East Kilbride, Glasgow, Scotland.
Eleven words structured in a way we couldn’t possibly attempt to make sound more terrifying.
Short description: ‘Drugged out noise swirling through the garage spectrum.’
Long description: ‘Sweat. A tape deck full of electronic drums, bass and keys verses a Lap Steel verses and an organ verses echoed out vocals.’
‘Kill a wolf. Form a band. Be unbearable. Do it yourself’ – as said by the band.
Girl Sweat will be doing all of the above on our second stage.
