    After the success of psychedelic folk outfit The Migrant, frontman Bjarke Bendtsen is ready to transcend furthermore into electronic folk-rock territory with the release of his latest project Rainbrother’s debut album Tales From The Drought, out now via General Bird.

    Tales From The Drought is all about making your way whilst on the road, dwelling on memories both beautiful and troublesome and coming to terms with the decisions that have been made. Album opener ‘Riverside’ is a stunning piece of songwriting that carries you away into the abyss and as the album continues, so do your thoughts. Each one a little more comforting than the next. Tales From The Drought invites the listener into a speckled dream, filled with steady beats, wistful Pink Floyd inspired guitar slides and a storytelling charm akin to the likes of Fleet Foxes and Bon Iver.

    Support comes from Aussies Wanderers

    THREESOME:

    A sketch comedy ménage à trois. Boy meets girl, girl meets boy. Boy and girl meet other boy.

    Tom & Ollie Comedy: WASPS

    Tom & Ollie Comedy are an award-winning*, comedy-competition-final-reaching* sketch-comedy double-act of completely equal worth and wit*. Expect anything from Scotland’s own Andy Murray, to the World’s Worst Philosopher™, to the mysterious properties of a revolutionary magnifying glass, depending on which sketches we actually decide to do.
