This week’s London Gigs Under a Tenner: Cloud Boat, Dawn Golden, Garden City Movement, The Death of Pop.

I’ve just regained movement after a weekend at an Irish wedding, and unfortunately two of this week’s recommendations happen tonight. I think they’re worth noting anyway, for future shows.

Monday, 23rd June:

  • Cloud Boat @ St. Pancras Old Church (£8.50…sold out): The beardy electronic duo of Sam Ricketts & Tom Clarke follow up the previously released  Carmine with Hideaway – both from their sophmore album “Model of You”. It’s out July 8th and follows last year’s “Book of Hours”.
  • Dawn Golden @ The Waiting Room (£8): Fresh from this weekend’s Camden Crawl, american producer Dexter Tortoriello is making good use of his first European outing to promote his album “Still Life”, which I Won’t Bend is from. It’s also worth checking out his other work with band Houses.

Wednesday, 25th June:

  • Garden City Movement @ Birthdays (FREE): The electronic duo from Israel are just about done with their European tour with this show, but will be limbering up for a weekend at Glastonbury festival at the weekend. Lir is taken from their EP “Bengali Cinema”, which is released today. It follows their “Entertainment” EP released last year.

Friday, 27th June:

  • The Death of Pop @ The Shacklewell Arms (FREE): This Bournemouth based family five-piece, comprising of three brothers and 2 cousins, are releasing a new EP “Fifths” as a Flexizine. I looked that up for you, it’s a 7-inch record (transparent blue in this case), accompanied by a 20 page zine. Whenever is set to be the opening track.
