As the New York alternative icon hits Liverpool, Getintothis’ David Hall has the scoop on what is sure to be a career-spanning set at Buyers Club.
The eleventh installment of Howl at the Moon brings New York writer, artist and musician to Merseyside, and kicks off a full UK tour for Jeffrey Lewis and Los Bolts‘ this month.
The slacker pioneer has been churning out lo-fi garage rock in the fine tradition of fellow east-coaster Sebadoh, with the gritty but gaudy sunshine aesthetic of Californian counterparts Pavement and Mellow Gold-era Beck.
A leading artist of the anti-folk movement emerging from the New York scene in 2001, along with Moldy Peaches and a host of others, Jeffrey Lewis has released seven albums in a variety of guises through the legendary Rough Trade label, plus multiple EPs, singles and side-projects.
Last year’s Manhattan album showcased Jeffrey Lewis‘ trademark razor-sharp wit and lo-fi pop sensibility, taking cues from outsider icon like Daniel Johnson.
Jeffrey Lewis and Los Bolts play Buyers Club on Friday, August 19, doors at 7:30pm.
