We're absolutely chuffed to announce that we're bringing Jay Watson of the all conquering Australian outfit Tame Impala, GUM and Pond to DJ in Walthamstow at Wild Card Brewery. Jay plays a number of instruments as part of Tame Impala, who recorded one of Pitchfork's top 5 albums of last year and took the slot before Adele on the Pyramid Stage on Saturday night at Glastonbury this year. He'll be charting an eclectic sonic voyage on the decks.
Come. Dance. Drink. Enjoy.
Leafcutter John of experimental jazz focused group Polar Bear (he's released on Planet Mu in his own right) is on the bill too, in what promises to be an interesting set.
Lo Recordings' Astronauts, whose album End Codes came out in May this year (next single Breakout 19 August), Stephen Vitkovitch (Byrd Out) and Si Goulder will be warming up the decks before Jay. And of course the brewery's excellent beer will be available.
The venue is a 5 minute walk from Walthamstow Central Tube station.
