As a boutique promoter for Edinburgh, we'll focus on quality over quantity by doing a few really interesting events with handpicked artists we love - rather than doing a load of average ones with any old touring band.
Our events will come in all shapes and sizes and feature eclectic, exciting, and experimental music of all types. Think Radio 6 meets John Peel, and a mix of critically acclaimed contemporary acts and pioneers from the last 40 years.
We'll use our events to raise awareness of, and funds for, mental health.
SFD: Stetson - Fox - Dunn
Saturday 29 September, Summerhall, Edinburgh
For our first event, we've handpicked SFD Stetson – Fox – Dunn, the experimental instrumental trio of virtuoso American musicians fronted by bass saxophonist, multi-instrumentalist, film composer and collaborator extraordinaire Colin Stetson (Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, The National).
SFD's sound is a head-spinning and brutal-yet-beautiful combination of post rock, free jazz, avant-garde metal and experimental noise, similar to Stetson and Fox's other project EX EYE. For reference points, think Mogwai, My Bloody Valentine, Pharoah Saunders, Ornette Coleman, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Three Trapped Tigers, Aphex Twin, John Cale, and Stockhausen.
The show is the only UK date on SFD’s tour and Stetson’s first-ever appearance in Scotland.
