Brussels - based producers and mystery crew Run Tell Secrecy, aka VUURWERK have teamed up with the upcoming Dandelion Lotus Label for the official release of their debut LP ME + ONE. Creating a dissonance between dance music and intimacy, they aim to drench the club experience in a comfortable haze. You can watch the making-of video of ME + ONE below - and see VUURWERK play at SMAK, Ghent tonight.
"My friend Jack Adams, aka John Webster Johns, aka John Dust, aka Muzz, is a stubborn genius. he wrote this song. Sometimes I would play in his group, either drums, guitar or bass, and I loved this song (as well as others) so much. So, I took it upon myself to do a version." Tim Presley - White Fence
Mount Eerie, the man otherwise known as Phil Elverum, reinvented his sound again last year with the two complementary albums Clear Moon and Ocean Roar (later condensed on a frenzied 7" release). Watch him and two bandmates go through an acoustic rendition of the delicate title track Ocean Roar for NPR. Mount Eerie plays at De Kreun, Kortrijk tonight with a full band and the show is free for members.
Earlier this year the two prolific garage rockers, Tim Presley aka White Fence and Ty Segall took up their guitars for an exceptional live performance at Room 205. You can watch the video above.
