School Of Seven Bells – ICA and ATP This December!

New York city. Home of the hip and crazy. And also home to the awesome School Of Seven Bells, who released their wonderfully inventive album “Alpinisms” late last year through the super-cool folk at Full Time Hobby (also home to The Leisure Society, White Denim, Tunng, etc).


Yeah, we wish we lived there, but we don’t, so sunny old London will have to do. Anyhow, SSB are led by Benjamin Curtis, formerly of Secret Machines, joined by twin sisters Alejandra and Claudia Deheza. If you haven’t had a listen to the record yet then you should really blag, steal or indeed BUY it (you can get it from the Full Time Hobby site directly HERE). The last track on the record is a dreamy, euphoric stunner, one of those that makes it feel like spring is breaking again, like the soundtrack to the climatic cinematic moment just before the credits roll. It’s called “My Cabal” and here it is along with a gorgeous alternative version of “Half Asleep”…

(There’s also an amazing early demo version of “White Elephant Coat” on the Blouse blog here that we highly recommend you check out too)

Great news then that they’re coming back over here for an ICA show on December 4th and for the My Bloody Valentine curated “Nightmare Before Christmas” ATP on December 6th too! Woop, another reason to go to Butlins this December!
