It is with great pride that Homemade Disco announce Le Juki, Howlround and David.
Le Juki bring together a fresh taste of menagerie, referencing classic soul/blues, grime and psych folk, blending lush harmonies and progressive song structures with a child-like simplicity. Their own combination of virtuosity and musical primitivism, and a very adventurous approach to composition, is both familiar yet totally unique.
'Any band that can construct a drum kit from the contents of a freezer box (using said box as a bass drum) are OK by me. They display dizzying levels of virtuosity throwing stop-start rhythms, vocal gymnastics and prog flourishes together with wild abandon' - ArtNoise review.
First coming to prominence with hugely-acclaimed 2012 LP The Ghosts Of Bush, Howlround create recordings and performances entirely from manipulating natural acoustic sounds on vintage reel-to-reel tape machines, with additional reverb or electronic effects strictly forbidden – a process that has seen their work compared to William Basinski, Philip Jeck, Morton Feldman and even the sculptures of Rachel Whiteread’
Since then, they have released three more LPs – 2013’s Secret Songs Of Savamala, recorded almost entirely in a flooded basement in wintry Serbia; 2014’s Torridon Gate, which was created using an ordinary suburban garden gate, three tape machines and not much else, and 2015's Tales From The Black Tangle. A new audio-visual album is due later this year.
