May 15th; UNII & Tape Measure Kid

UNII

Unii is a singer, songwriter, electronic music composer (ambient, avant-garde pop) from Northern island of Sapporo city, Hokkaido, Japan. Her soft yet powerful voice mixed with electronic sound invites you to the artistic world of hers. Unii has been performing live not only in Japan but overseas in Europe and Asia, such as Singapore, Vietnam and China. Her music is accepted positively borderless-ly and her style is described as post Bjork that it floats us into dream-like soundscape.

Unii released her first album from independent label Elegant Disc “New world, sea and your eyes” (2011) which she did all the creation work from recording to songwriting. The second album “Long scene, before sunset” was released from her own label Nothernlights in August of 2014. Unii’s creation is fresh and she is pioneering her own style of music.

Tape Measure Kid

 

TAPE MEASURE KID is the new live-playing duo of N, amps + guitar, and Jim Campbell (aka the preterite, www.the-preterite.com), lofi samplers, modified analog 4-track recorder and effects. On their double debut releases “Ours Is A Stubborn Monster” and “Zero Is An Even Number” they expand N’s drone / ambient style to something that is at the same time drone and beyond drone, including a sort of dark and sometimes weird improv tendency. very unique and for some of you maybe as if N’s sustained guitar had been mangled through a computer by some strange wizard. but in fact all you can hear happened in real time, with a cable feeding the guitar signal to jim’s cassette scratch orchestra, with the possibility of real-time manipulation while playing, cutting loose from boundaries.
