Bristol heavy-psych institution Stolen Body Records dream up a double-headline show of epic scope at The Island - all part of the build up to the 6th installment of Bristol Psych Fest (now renamed Astral Festival).
Al Lover's heady electronics are sludge in atmosphere only; with no guitars in sight, this Californian experimentalist crafts a melting pot of trip-hop and trap that breathes in everything from kraut to dubtech too. Alongside label mates Yama Warashi, he's one of the acts that make Stolen Body hardest to pigeonhole. Burried between dense sci-fi guitar fuzz and Nuggets-esque garage hooks, space-rockers SLIFT fly over from France to offer another kick in the teeth for disciples of local acts like YO NO SE.
