Boat People and Moviate proudly present an evening with Julianna Barwick in the Cathedral Room at Der Maennerchor In Harrisburg, PA!
$10 day of show
Since her 3rd album, Nepenthe, was released in 2013, Julianna has toured with Sigur Rós, sung with children’s choirs around the world, recorded and performed with the Flaming Lips, recorded Bach’s “Adagio from Concerto In D Minor” on Sony Masterworks, played piano and sang with Yoko Ono and brewed a wasabi beer, Rosabi, with Dogfish Head.
Barwick’s diverse past has also included collaborative albums with Ikue Mori and Helado Negro, a remix commission from Radiohead and her song “Vow” remixed by Diplo. Upcoming Barwick projects include a film score and a music box.
Pitchfork: “…among the best and most artful ambient music being made today.”
Diplo: “Barwick’s music is like Care Bears making love.”
Wayne Coyne: “I’m a fan of what she does…she’s really pretty crazy, and weird, and funny.”
NPR: “Downright medicinal, altering the listener’s surroundings in ways that make them uncomfortable, yet still wondrously inviting.”
New York Times: “Her ethereal multi-tracked harmonies have the devotional quality of gospel choirs, and the oddball allure of Bjork or Yoko Ono”.
Mary Lattimore is a harpist living in Philadelphia. She experiments with her Lyon and Healy Concert Grand harp and effects. Her solo debut, “The Withdrawing Room”, was released in 2013 on Desire Path Recordings.
Mary also writes harp parts for songs and recordings, performing and recording with such great artists as Meg Baird, Thurston Moore, Sharon Van Etten, Jarvis Cocker, Kurt Vile, Steve Gunn, Ed Askew and Fursaxa.
Mary has been a part of soundtrack projects including the Valerie Project, Lopapeysa, a film by David Kessler set in Iceland, and the film score for Marina Abramovic: the Artist is Present, a documentary about the artist.
In March 2013, she accompanied Nick Caves beautiful horse soundsuits for the 100th anniversary of Grand Central Station in New York City.
Her 2014 record Slant of Light with guitarist/synth player/producer Jeff Zeigler was released by Thrill Jockey, which was followed by the two collaborating on a track for Ghostly Swim 2. Mary and Jeff also composed a score to Philippe Garrels 1968 experimental silent film Le Revelateur, and debuted it in Marfa, Texas along with the film. They have since performed it Chicago, Philadelphia, and early 2015 in Los Angeles.
happy record store day!

THE ALBUM LEAF
(on Sub Pop, Arena Rock Recordings)
21+ show. 10PM. FREE. At the Millworks,
"For musicians, a 10-year anniversary is a
time to look back on their first album and see how far they've come from those earliest recordings. The
new Album Leaf album A Chorus of Storytellers, marks the first decade for the group led by Jimmy LaValle. In those 10 years, LaValle has gone from initial improvised home recordings to now five complete studio albums, from opening slots to leading an incredible world-touring band to the stage at Red Rocks, headlining the Metamorphose festival in Japan and performing at the Hollywood Bowl with
the Incredible String Band. LaValle’s well-earned reputation as a crafter of impeccable sonic imagery
even led to a critically-acclaimed show at the Seattle International Film Festival where The Album Leafperformed a live score for the 1927 silent film Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans"

EXIT VERSE (Geoff Farina of KARATE / SECRET STARS / GLORYTELLERS)
"The best artists, be they musicians, painters or filmmakers, never stop striving to learn more about their chosen craft. In that respect, Geoff Farina is one of the greats. If Farina has learned anything in his 20-plus years as a musician, it's how to turn the worst parts of life into the greatest art." -Alternative press
"No longer the artist who dabbles, his production is enriched and amplified by the harmonization of all the false starts, fragmentary ideas, and assimilated styles that he's amassed in his pursuit of transcendence" - Pitchfork
Singer/guitarist Geoff Farina (Karate, Secret Stars, Glorytellers) teamed up with drummer John Dugan (Chisel, Edsel) and bassist Pete Croke (Brokeback, Tight Phantoms) to form Chicago's Exit Verse early in 2013. On their debut album, Farina belts out catchy rockers with more vigor than he has in two decades. The album's concise, gutty anthems ring of the mid-90s when the guitar-driven Karate was shaking basements and DIY venues across the country. The angular rhythms of "Seeds" and the simmering "Fiddle & Flame" evoke the Karate of In Place Of Real Insight, but the new band demonstrates stronger rock roots, and resounds the classic rock radio and 70s/80s punk vinyl of Farina's youth. Farina still delivers his songs with the urgency of Karate's most bellicose moments, but with less self-consciousness and more determination.

KOEN HOLTKAMP of MOUNTAINS, live at Little Amps (uptown)
SUNDAY APRIL 6th, 2014, 7PM, all-ages, $5 suggested donation.
Koen Holtkamp creates music that exists simultaneously in large and small scales. His compositions lend themselves to careful examination, with each sound precisely placed. Holtkamp (who is one-half of Mountains) considers every instrument he uses carefully and pays specific attention to the environment, actual or digital, in which that instrument is being recorded and processed. They also expand and evolve gradually, giving a sense of boundlessness that extends not only to a specific song or album, but also to his discography as a whole. On "Motion" (Koens new LP), Holtkamp plays with these ideas of scale and space, using shifting array of analog, digital and acoustic sources to explore the perceived effect of moving from one dynamic space to another. He excels at coaxing the sublime out of the synthetic, writing music that seems as if it has existed in nature for eons, but can only now be uncovered using modern electronic instrumentation.
While Holtkamp traditionally composes based on material developed during live performances, the first three tracks on Motion were written and realized entirely in the studio. This approach gave him the opportunity to really hone in on each separate instrument individually allowing for a deeper sense of focus and less of a reliance on live sampling and looping. “Vert” features some of the most prominent, even aggressive, use of electric guitar in any of his work. On “Crotales” Holtkamp juxtaposes iridescent analog synths and virtual “acoustic” instruments such as computer generated upright bass and crotales, offering a surreal take on his archetypal approach. The entire b-side is occupied by the sprawling “Endlessness,” a richly textured swell of overlapping drones and chirping synthesizers.
Motion is presented as a stand-alone LP, and is also available as an extended CD release coupled with a second disc of Connected Works, compiling all of Holtkamp’s vinyl-only releases digitally for the first time. This includes Liquid Light Forms (Barge, 2013), Gravity/Bees (Thrill Jockey 2010), and Make Haste (A Room Forever, 2008). Listening to these albums all together only serves to reinforce a direct through line in his solo works, his techniques and timbral palate evolving as steadily and gradually as the pieces themselves.
