Mute Swimmer & Own Road (UK) - Cafe Prinz Willy - Kiel

Eintritt 1,50 Euro. Für die Musiker gehen wir mit dem Hut rum.Beschreibung Mute Swimmer is a musical project of British artist Guy Dale. Through numerous releases and ashifting cast of collaborators and players Dale has been shooting his fascination with the lyricalsong through art performance, folk, post rock, new wave, ambient drone and spoken word.He has described Mute Swimmer as a character of sabotage - frequently upending expectationsof the ‘singer-songwriter’ by playing with the form in different musical contexts and taking theprocess of writing and moment of performance itself as a subject. As such his songs often enteruniquely into the real time of performance - addressing the listener directly in the present tense.Romantic, ironic and hauntingly melancholic by rapid turns he has earned a reputation for hiscompelling, idiosyncratic live performances and recordings.Old Love a collaboration with Copenhagen based musician Own Road was released on DendronRecords in 2018. Air Itself - a meditative suite of song-scapes channeled Dale’s poetic,ambivalent lyricism through ambient folk, field recording and lo-fi drone. Present Perfect (2015)and Second (2014) - recorded as a four piece ‘art rock’ band - received airplay on BBC 6 Music(UK), Byte FM (Germany) and Radio Tres (Spain). Seven inch single Song Against Itself (2011)was record of the week at Rough Trade and Piccadilly Records. Other releases include OldTricks (2013), Orientation (2011) and the eponymous debut Mute Swimmer (2010).Mute Swimmer has released music on Truco Espárrago, Dendron, Woodland and Bleeding HeartRecordings.www.instagram.com/muteswimmer/https://twitter.com/muteswimmerxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxOwn Road is Simon Skjødt Jensen’s one-man band. Based in Copenhagen Simon's music existsin a twilight space between American folk music, singer-songwriter and psychedelica. With abeautiful voice (sometimes through the use of looping vocal effects), guitars, percussion and moreexotic instruments Simon’s compositions move effortlessly between anxiety, melodic beauty andotherworldly abandon. The music is at once archaically familiar and utterly contemporary. Hiseponymous debut was released in 2010 to great critical acclaim. Besides numerous releases ofEPs, splits- and different projects, the second album was released in 2013 and in 2018 two newalbums were released – ‘Old Love’ – a split album with Mute Swimmer (UK) and ‘Another Country’a folky solo album. Own Road has played many concerts in different countries and places, big andsmall and supported artists as different as Lee Ranaldo, Scout Niblett, Jerusalem In My Heart, TheHandsome Family & Jessica Pratt.https://open.spotify.com/artist/20TLtPkvbtUrcuS62dsyTVhttps://ownroad.bandcamp.com/http://www.facebook.com/ownroadsHomepage http://www.guydale.com
