As the Buyers Club plays host to the third instalment of Deep Cuts, Getintothis’ Craig MacDonald is here with all the juicy details as well as a round-up of March’s night.
Getintothis’ third Deep Cuts event will be held at Liverpool’s Buyers Club on April 6.
Helping to herald some of the country’s brightest new music, the latest Deep Cuts bill boasts Peaness, Neil Noa, The Shipbuilders and Jo Mary while world music pioneers Radio Exotica will DJ.
Much like the first two instalments, the forthcoming Deep Cuts event will feature artists that we have championed from the rooftops of Getintothis HQ.
Having formed in Chester at the tail end of 2015, three piece indie-poppers Peaness will be aiming to continue their meteoric start to this year. The trio recently became the latest signings of Alcopop! Records, with the all girl group delivering hook-laden cuts packed full of sunshine groove. Having played with the likes of Goat Girl, Yak and PAWS, they are set to hit FestEvol and Focus Wales on their travels.
There are few acts that symbolise the modern Mersey sound more then The Shipbuilders. Combining the stirring blues of Captain Beefheart with their scouse surf swagger, they have become standout additions to recent Threshold and LIMF line-ups. Last year saw their debut EP Something In The Water rival The Rolling Stones for top spot on the iTunes Blues chart. Watch out Mick and Keith!
Easily one of the most promising talents to have come to light this year, Neil Noa beat of thousands of acts to make the shortlist for Glastonbury‘s Emerging Talent competition and with slick cuts like the infectious Same Place Heart, its easy to see why. The soulful grooves of the multi instrumentalist create webs of dark, electro RnB as demonstrated on his triumphant debut EP The Last First One. This may well be the start of a very busy year for the Childwall man.
Continuing the rich depth of talent to be found across the water, slacker groove collective Jo Mary are an enthralling prospect that we have kept an eager eye on for some time. Their droning, psych blues show a band poised to make a firm dent in your subconscious, as they did with ours when we witnessed their blistering set at Skeleton Coast. Their musical prowess has seen them gather fans in fellow Wirral stalwarts Bill Ryder-Jones and The Coral and with vibrant tracks like Shameless, its easy to see why.
Completing this month’s edition of Deep Cuts, we are delighted to welcome Radio Exotica to spin their world music spells over us at the Buyers Club. Piecing together vintage tracks from across the globe, they produce sonic time capsules to transport you into another world. Mixes have included Latin Bugaloo, Hell Up in Harlem, a tribute to the recent passing of the legendary DJ Derek and our personal favourite Thai Psych – a journey through Luk Thung a musical genre that originated in post-Second World War Thailand.
The forthcoming Deep Cuts follows on from our second instalment at Buyers Club last month, with plenty witnessing a bursting bounty of sonic delights.
Opening up the second edition, Runcorn lads SPILT kicked things off with frenetic doses of simplistic yet intense and entirely unrelenting noise, while PIXEY brought her joyous, chirpy, feel-good melodies, radiating sunshine in even the darkest cold corners.
The graceful charms of I See Rivers followed, as the trio offered up a beautiful set of atmospheric instrumentals and drifting harmonies, including a journey into the crowd for a unplugged sing-a-long. A moment that brought the Buyers Club to a stunned silence, and was a moment that all in attendance won’t be forgetting for a long time.
Next up 90s Britpop infused fizzers The Bohos joined the fun, bringing XL guitar sounds and tunes packed with swagger and confidence in abundance. Ali Horn brought things to a close with a glowing live debut, showing signs that he could be a serious one to watch over the coming year. Bringing infectious slacker rock tunes with languid melodies and jangling guitars, he brought the sound of a hazy summer day to a cold March night.
With five new artists all impressing showing signs of huge potential, many punters were left saying this was the best four pounds they’ve spent in ages. Who are we to argue?
- Deep Cuts takes place Thursday April 6, 7.30pm at Buyers Club, £4 on the door.
