Events on Tuesday 25th January

On Saturday afternoon January 29th, the music loving team at Lost Horizon in Bristol throw open the doors to welcome some of the key movers and shakers in today’s vibrant vinyl universe!
Today the duo are announcing their upcoming new record, A Gut Feeling, alongside lead single ‘Mr Henderson Coughs’ — a janky, off-kilter, Shellac-esque head bopper with repetition at its core that details "a story of grey areas, extenuating circumstances, and misguided attempts at redemption. It could be seen as darkly comic, but that depends on how dark your sense of humour is”.
With interest in the band quickly growing, they soon began working with independent record label Funnel Records, who shaped them into the band that they are today. With the financial pressures of Covid decimating the arts industry however, Funnel Records sadly are no more, and so as a newly independent band, Little Thief had to turn to Crowdfunder to help to create their debut album, raising a whopping £5,000.
Recently supported through Gilles Peterson's Future Bubblers talent development program, Painter has continued to make a lasting impact on key tastemakers in the UK.  Fast emerging as an important figurehead in experimental electronic music today, she also has a monthly show on Worldwide FM.
