MV & EE (Woodsist, Ecstatic Peace et al)
with the Home Comfort Sound System

A spectral sound & cinema show from the visionary American free-folk duo
A hand-built PA and visual environment is going to be installed into your local club to beautifully twisted effect by contemporary American blues visionaries MV & EE for this one-off tour, and it's time to welcome them in (special guests and kitchen sink included). Blending and bending acoustic folk jams with rock and psych, the Vermont-based couple of Matt 'MV' Valentine and Erika 'EE' Elder graze upon the fields laid down by The Grateful Dead and Gene Clark, and swim in the depths with Loren Connors and The Dead C. Heroes who have blazed through all kind of colourful scenes and tags like a hot knife through space butter, they have created a body of work that has warmed many a soul through their releases (nigh on 200), exploratory live show and a whole host of visions and stereo experiments. Matt and Erika do things their own way and this tour sees them return to Europe for the first time in two years in support of brand new full length Space Homestead out now on Woodsist.

The Home Comfort Sound System is built to MV & EE's spec by sound engineer Tall of Suffolk's Ambush Cinema and combines with combines with projections to reconfigure and retune each space with specially dreamt up environments channelling MV & EE's homespun aesthetic. Good time front porch vibes, heavy acoustics and zero gravity jams blend with moving image, moonshine and local ales in this untethered and other-worldly a/v show.

For the past fifteen years Matt and Erika have been formulating an ancient-modern universe of sound from their homestead deep in the Vermont woods, via their own Child of Microtones and Heroine Celestial Agriculture imprints and a cottage industry of boutique labels, Ecstatic Peace, Woodsist, Blackest Rainbow, and 3-Lobed among them. Their discography is labyrinthine, documenting a long term vision that has stayed true to its
course regardless of passing fads, and places them at the heart of of the US psychedelic underground. A singular exploration of American songform and the unknown worlds beyond.

THE DOOZER (Woodsist, Siltbreeze et al)
Raised around the Fenlands of Cambridgeshire but the city drew closer and closer, the lights brighter and the time shorter. He’s always observing, watching and talking, buying and borrowing. Catch him at the Museum.

KEEP IT TOGETHER is the fourth full-length album from the Fenlands shadow puppet master THE DOOZER. Relocating to a village hall, little-theatre-style, he sets the task with a cast of eleven players dipping in and out, old Mrs. Mallows holding the keys.

DJ PETE UM and DJ RAREBIT playing proper sounds..... Plenty time to hear it all. Come early. Stay late.
