HASHEMOTO / The Lonely Fates / Love Maps
Love Maps are a power pop/funk-rock genre-bending band. A Love Maps set bounces between high-energy pop exuberance, and slow electro melodrama. Be prepared to dance and cry.
The Lonely Fates are a happy-go-lucky band. They write carousing toe-tappers, moody ballads and wounded love songs. They write songs for sages and simpletons, bruisers and brawlers, the naive and the literate. Singer & pianist Fiona Bolton and guitarist/singer Randall Blair (The Wedded Bliss) create a swirling harmony of indi-pop, soul and country.
Hashemoto. If you think of a bar in your favourite city, the kind of place with a piano in the corner that people play, not one that's just there for decoration, and you think of it as a place where Peter, Paul and Mary might have gone for a coffee or a drink most days. And if you think of the owner of that bar as being Jonny Greenwood, and when he isn't booking bands to play in his bar he is playing a lot of Claude Debussy over the PA, well Hashemoto is the kind of musical act that might be the house band in that bar.
Hashemoto will be be playing songs from their recent album release ‘waiting for the shade to make its way over us’.
