Awesome show @ The Chameleon on 1st Dec ft Forest Fire / Hhymn / Fists / Twenty Yr Hurricane/
Fistsmusic Presents: FOREST FIRE (NYC) plus support from Hhymn, Fists & Twenty Year Hurricane. @ The Chameleon Doors: 7:30pm Entry £5 on the door on the night A cut price new album + advanced ticket offer is available from Fat Cat Records on either of these links:http://fat-cat.co.uk/fatcat/news.php?id=2072&offset=0&artistList&imprintListhttp://forestfireuk.bigcartel.com/ Forest Fire - http://www.myspace.com/fuckforestfire Brooklyn based Forest Fire were discovered by accident by influential  blogger Ryan Catbird who released the ultra-rare ‘Psychic Love Star’ EP  along with debut record ‘Survival’ through his little label Catbird  Records in 2008. It wasn’t until a 2009 re-release on Talitres that the  record gathered real momentum finally being named as one of the very  best albums of the year by the likes of Rough Trade Shops and La  Blogotheque. Earlier this year they signed to UK label Fat Cat  Records (home to shit loads of people like Animal Collective, Mazes, No  Age, Sigur Ros, Vashti Bunyan, etc) who have just released sophomore  album ‘Staring at the X’. The new record is a massive departure from the  slackerish, skronky free jazz meets ramshackle country n’ punk leanings  of ‘Survival’. ‘Staring at the X’ is totally stacked with ambition,  weird electronics, guitar fuzz and loads of ideas. The songs are huge  and I’m pretty sure that Forest Fire will be too.  A tough band  to characterise they have played loads of shows with the likes of Cass  McCombs, Phosphorescent, Gang Gang Dance, Sharon Van Etten, Julianna  Barwick and Psychedelic Horseshit. Have a little listen to ‘Staring at the X’ over on Spotify now. It’s really good.  Press for ‘Survival’ “raw and powerful… like a drug-hazed stroll through the history of song.” La Blogotheque “an absolute revelation.” Rough Trade “An exercise in urban folk with art-punk underpinnings… Lyrically sharp, but musically savvy too.” Uncut Magazine 4/5 Stars HHYMN - http://www.hhymn.co.uk/ Nottingham band Hhymn have been creating lots of excitement lately with  their excellent debut album ‘In the Depths’ (Denizen) and awesome live  show. Musically they are a lush, expansive and dreamy affair that takes  off at the drop of a hat with huge verdant stabs of Morricone-esque  brass, slide guitar and keys. The last time they played Nottingham (The  Malt Cross) I couldn’t even get in to see them such was the turnout.  Press for ‘In the Depths’ ‘In The Depths’ is, to put it quite simply, a fantastic debut with some seriously impressive tracks. Shout 4 Music 9/10 ‘Beautifully orchestrated throughout and produced with feeling, Hhymn  mean serious business with their heartfelt rustic jamboree - “In The  Depths” is good enough to eat.’ All Gigs - ***** ‘Their ability  to turn from gentle dreaminess to swirling and infectious tunes in the  blink of an eye means they call to mind acts from Bon Iver to Arcade  Fire’ Room Thirteen ‘Their music embellishes a poignant  subtlety, gifting a soothing antidote that spawns a beauty that can do  nothing but pierce you’ Red Hot Velvet 4/5 FISTS - http://www.myspace.com/fistsmusic I will spare you the usual gubbins. We will be playing mostly new  material and we’re probably going to be on first so we can concentrate  on the door and looking after the bands.    TWENTY YEAR HURRICANE - http://www.myspace.com/20yearhurricane Feverish, confessional, indie-rock shot through with a low-slung,   post-punk rattle. This is their first live show in almost a year.
