Once again the team over at Nerve, alongside Off-Kilter have secured another spectacular booking TIN MAN! (USA). A true man on a mission. Supporting on the bill will be Nat James b2b Tgmn, IV Drip, & Niku.

26.07.19 @ Civic Underground

TIN MAN: (VIENNA, NOW USA)

Producing music for more than a decade, the named master of the neo acid scene, Vienna’s Tin Man continues to evolve and invigorate with each and every release. Tin Man is an artist in the truest sense of the word. Over the last decade now the man born Johannes Auvinen has explored an ever evolving sound palette that touches on house, techno and ambient. Much like his namesake’s character in the Wizard of Oz, he has been on a mission to find his true self, except this Tin Man’s medium has been music. (Resident Advisor bio).

SLOW CULTURE - Idle Motion (Single)

A truly amazing inner west, alternative, ambient style psych rock band. Give em a listen, absolutely stunning! More information on Slow Culture below:

Slow Culture's eponymous debut EP is awash in rich, ambient tones and captivating melodies. Juxtaposing the complexities of jazz, the hypnotic rhythms of psychedelia and the effective simplicity of alternative rock, the Sydney four-piece have poured an ocean of imagination into their debut, resulting in four majestically idiosyncratic songs.

Engineered by Richard Lake and mixed by Steve James, the EP is as sonically textured as it is meticulously written. The delicacy of the band's nuances are captured and presented perfectly in balance with their outright intensity. Able to switch directions in a heartbeat, each track feels like a world unto itself – travelling without boundaries or artistic restrictions. Layering lavish, reverb-soaked vocals atop sophisticated beats, every track has unshakable foundations, around which the band paint texture upon texture.

Opening to the sound of chatter and eerie synths, ‘Idle Motion’ is the first taste of the bands forthcoming EP. An infectious vocal melody and a relentless groove blend with the instrumentation, paving the way as the song displays the bands elegance and unfiltered energy. Unafraid of treading new ground, ‘Idle Motion’ takes the band to new heights.

Boasting songs that are creatively unshackled and artistically stirring, Slow Culture's debut is a striking first step towards greatness. Evolving as most young bands do – undergoing several name changes and lineups – Slow Culture have transcended their infancy to a stagger conclusion.
