Vic highlights FOUND in NYC as his pick of all the Scottish bands on tour this week. The inventors of Cybraphon, (see video below), FOUND will thrill audiences at The Rose in Williamsburg on Thursday night, and at the Central Park Bandshell on Saturday. More from Vic and details on all Scottish international shows below:
UPDATE: FOUND will also play at a “Secret Out-Store Performance” with Sonic Boom and members of MGMT at 8pm on Tuesday 20th October at the Record Grouch, Monster Island basement, 128 River Street, Brooklyn.
One of Edinburgh’s, Scotland’s and possibly the World’s most underrated bands, FOUND return to the U.S. of A. with an exclusive performance at the annual CMJ Music Marathon which celebrates it’s 30th Anniversary this year across New York City’s coolest clubs and venues.
If the right people actually see FOUND, I sincerely hope they are offered an enormous record deal with complete artistic control, as they have more ideas in one song than most people have on an entire LP! Imagine the wonky psychedelia of The Beta Band, experimental electronica, 60’s beat-pop, old-skool hip-hop and a whole heap of funk coming together within a 5-headed beast!
FOUND manage to be one of the few bands who successfully marry technology and tradition, using samples in a genuinely inventive way while holding down a groove with guitar, bass, drums, keys and harmony vocals. Don’t miss the chance to see these true innovators in NYC before they justly become a huge Scottish success story!
Also on tour this week: Camera Obscura, Broken Records, Twin Atlantic, Mungo’s Hi Fi, Snow Patrol, Hostage, Travis, Young Fathers, Lloyd Cole, Rustie and Hudson Mohawke. See all dates below. (UPDATE : BROKEN RECORDS SHOWS IN SPAIN CANCELLED)
