+ Billy Steiger & Tom Wheatley
Debut Bristol show for the shape-shifting London-based musician with a new album on Mute and an exploratory live show that blends classic songwriting and a free music ethos.
Over the past decade Daniel Blumberg has released an extensive catalogue of music under different names, while forging ongoing collaborations with musicians, writers and filmmakers such as Neil Hagerty, David Toop and Brady Corbet.
Most recently Blumberg has been an artist in residence at Cafe Oto, working intensively with a group of musicians including Dirty Three's Jim White and Scott Walker producer Peter Walsh to craft his debut record Minus, which was recently released on Mute Records.
Minus is a powerful and highly personal work, one that weds free improvisation to the rawest emotional songwriting. Live the material is radically reimagined from show to show, with violinist Billy Steiger and double bassist Tom Wheatley performing alongside Blumberg to push his fragile songforms to their limits.
"a statement of intent from an artist who has found his voice” — The Quietus

“An introspective explosion... [that] recalls Talk Talk's Laughing Stock and Neil Young's Ditch Trilogy” — Uncut
