Tape Loop Orchestra
Tape Loop Orchestra is the solo project of Manchester-based artist Andrew Hargreaves, known also for his involvement (along with Craig Tattersall) in some of the finest and cherished ambient-pop records as The Boats. Steeped in a sense of nostalgia, the Lancashire romantic’s work as TLO patiently explores the notions of existence and time through painstaking manipulation of tape loops and found sound to create a wilting, deeply-personal, melancholic microcosm.
Interiors Live is the first public performance of a new work in progress by Tape Loop Orchestra. With a combination of minimal sound and found photographs, Interiors is an investigation into the domestic ambiance of rooms without inhabitants.
A New Line (Related)
Andrew Johnson (former Hood, The Remote Viewer, amongst others!) performs as his solo alias A New Line (Related). Quietly responsible for one of the finest self-titled LP’s of 2014, A New Line (Related) paints from pensive, cold-weather sound palette with a minimalistic aesthetic with equal nods to the dub-laden world of Basic Channel (see recent Kimochi EP) to the windswept North moors.

Conor Thomas (Death Of Rave)
Death Of Rave / Boomkat editions don Conor Thomas remains a true taste maker, light-years ahead of everyone else and ever-present in anything progressive and interesting in experimental music emerging from Manchester and beyond.
