Soft Swells playing up at Origami's very own loft. The show is going on at 7pm. A bit of information about SS - the band is the duo of Brooklyn natives turned LA locals, Tim Williams and Matt Welsh. Previously, Williams had been recording under his solo project on Dovecote Records, while Welsh remained a prominent member of the Brooklyn's outfit Phonograph. The two joined forces over here in Los Angeles, resulting in a mixture of stuttering and snapping drums, handclaps, a ringing xylophone, subtle electronics and gifted storytelling. The two released their first 7" over the summer, resulting in a widespread "west coast buzz" and airplay on both KCRW and KROQ.
Modern Outsider Records, the album was recorded in the tiny town of Lewes, England. According to Williams, "'Control’ is the main theme for this record. Really, what you can and can't - and how that affects your life.” Sweet. Come check out Soft Swells tonight at 7pm! See you there.
