Amatorski
sounds like: Portishead, Beach House, Efterklang

Amatorski is one of more intriguing outfits across the Southern borders. Fronted by enigmatic vocalist/musician Inne Eysermans, the trio completely spellbinded a sellout crowd at Rotown back in 2012 with their breathtaking lo-fi pop. After unearthing sophomore release From Clay To Figures, we rejoice as the band returns to the Nieuwe Binnenweg. The album drew wild reviews by notably The Guardian. The established nebulous triphop of TBC has made way for a more fractured, introverted sound. These days, Amatorski's stratum delves into deeper contemplation, utilizing a more minimalist approach with more meticulous instrumentation and arguably a more confidential oratory. They've accomplished Efterklang's abstract conceptualism, composer Phillip Glass's minimalism and Boards Of Canada's mystique into one saucy whole. An immense creative leap of faith without the most concise op pop songs. But if you put Amatorski's live rep into account, you cannot help but be enticed, right? Well, the band is still progressing further and further as a live unit, if their recent gig at Best Kept Secret is any indication. So yeah, we're absolutely stoked to have Amatorksi back! Translated by Jasper Willems

Anais Mitchell
Locatie: Paradijskerk
sounds like: Laura Marling, Ray LaMontagne, Kathleen Edwards

Singer-songwriters successfully embarking a more traditionalist brand of American folk music as their vernacular are hard to come by. Mostly because you have to be really friggin' good to pull it off. Hailing from pastoral Vermont, Anais Mitchell is one of those special artists who can take any song and instantly make it her own. After releasing records via Ani DiFranco's Righteous Babe, Mitchell has finally spread her wings by running her an  indie label of her own: Wilderland. Many peers seem to gravitate to the immensely charismatic songstress: Mitchell has toured with the likes of Richard Thompson and Josh Ritter, while the wonderful Hadestown features artists like Bon Iver and The Low Anthem. A true storyteller, often using fictional backdrops and characters to illustrate her songs, with so much detail and sincerity that they feel like confessionals. To some extent, Mitchell's music draws from firsthand narratives: Young Man In Arms is based on her grandfathers life, largely written from a male perspective. Like DiFranco and namesake Joni Mitchell, Anais is a magnetic performer who likes to engage her audience. Expect original material as well as personal interpretations of traditional Celtic and British folk music. Note: this show will take place at the  Paradijskerk (Nieuwe Binnenweg 25).  Translated by Jasper Willems
