The weird and wonderful psy-fi Americana collective Low Red Moon are set to release their debut album Compañeros on Friday 15th April with a headline show at the esteemed soul & retro club The Night Owl. The new record features hit singles ‘Fluid’, ‘Here On The Moon’ and ‘St. Vitus’.
Low Red Moon are a multi-disciplined collective, making mostly music with a bit of poetry, visual and performance art thrown in for good measure. Their music is self-described as “Psy-Fi Americana”, a blend of psych and sci-fi and is the culmination of many hard-working artists; Kaytee Thompson-DeWolfe, Gary Charles, Sean Thompson-DeWolfe, Andrew Wilson AKA Dr Magnets, Beth Walsh, Angela Cross, Olly Pilsworth, Faisal Rashid and Carla Busuttil.
The album is set to be released on their own label and collaborative community project, Under Coven. It is through this project that Low Red Moon were awarded Arts Council funding. Compañeros will be released exclusively on Bandcamp before a later release on all streaming platforms from the 15th May.
Speaking of the album, frontwoman Kaytee states “Compañeros was chosen as it means companions or friends in Spanish, which we all are, and it’s also a nod to our guitarist’s love for spaghetti westerns. When we were recording the album in Wales, we woke one morning to find Dr. Magnets blasting Ennio Morricone at full volume whilst cleaning our shared kitchen, which was too cute for words. I wrote most of the songs but a couple, like singles “Fluid”, “Smoke & Mirrors” and “Full Wolf Moon” came about through jamming collectively, something we are doing more of and will continue to explore.”
The experimental collective have collated a fantastic lineup of bands, DJs and spoken-word artists for what’s set to be a brilliant night in all. Support on the night comes from Staffordshire post-rock group Arapaima, performance poet Sean Thompson-DeWolfe, performance artist Miz E. Laneous with live visuals from VJ Vajazzle.
Also introduced on the night is a brand new club night Halligalli presented by DJ duo Side Step 9 with DJs Ritmos De Fuego, Main Au Hasard & Lysergic Lounge playing a mix of psychedelic rock, dub reggae, zamrock, afro beat and more!
