Yeasayer describe themselves as “Middle Eastern-psych-pop-snap-gospel” but actually they’re an experimental indie band from Brooklyn, New York. They released their debut album All Hour Cymbals in 2007 and this year they released their follow-up, Odd Blood.
Silver Columns are a home-grown duo playing synth-pop folktronica rock techno (that’s journalist words for don’t-know-how-to-describe-them) that maybe sounds a bit like Hot Chip, maybe even better?
The Topman Ctrl tour involves different Channel 4 presenters hosting different bands in different cities. Nick Grimshaw is the presenter hosting this show. Now I don’t know who that is but then I don’t own a TV. Or a laptop. I can’t even watch iPlayer! Sad times.
