On White Fields and Open Devices:
“A quite brilliant work of art”” 8/10 NME
“Their mixing of Battles-like, math-prog precision with Sigur Rós-styled glacial sweetness and Ligeti-goes-glitch drama makes for a pretty impressive trip.” **** Time Out
“Both thrilling and thought-provoking in equal measure”” BBC Music
On Vessels live:
“One of the country’s most engrossing live outfits… There’s no formula, no gimmicks, just one of our most underrated bands and their invigoratingly glorious sound – don’t miss out” – KKKKK Kerrang!
“Channeling the eerie cinematic sound tracking of Mogwai, ethereal subtlety of Sigur Rós (even using the trademark guitar bow), and raw power of Zeppelin and Rage Against the Machine, Vessels are a rare breed.”- The Fly
Leeds five-piece Vessels are Martin Teff, Tim Mitchell, Tom Evans, Lee J. Malcolm and Pete Wright. Debut album, White Fields and Open Devices (2008), was released to critical acclaim and showcased the eclectic nature of a band who draw influence from rock, electronica, techno, metal and ambient music. Their explosive live show has attracted many fans and resulted in appearances at Latitude, Bestival and Leeds festivals, amongst others, and support slots with Efterklang, Caribou, Brett Anderson and The Wedding Present’s Dave Gedge with the BBC Big Band.
2010 has already seen the band successfully tour with Oceansize around Europe, previewing songs from their forthcoming second album, Helioscope, which was recorded in June 2010 in Dallas, Texas, with producer John Congleton (Explosions in the Sky, Bill Callaghan, St Vincent).
Irish instrumental rock band Enemies released their debut album We’ve Been Talking earlier this year on the busy Richter Collective label (Adebisi Shank, The Redneck Manifesto, Not Squares) in Ireland and renowned Japanese independent label Stiff Slack. The band have toured Ireland, Europe and Japan and shared the stage with ASIWYFA, Adebisi Shank, Heathers, Blakfish and Danish band Marvin’s Revolt.
