Meadows Ever Bleeding from Sweden have a one off gig supporting Robert Bearsby also at the Hoxton Square Bar on the 3rd April. We might do more on this if we have chance

Katzenjammer arrive in the UK for a series of 4 dates in May, which should be fantastic, opening on the 8th May in Nottingham…
After their astonishing album Hvel was released last week, Árstíðir will make a UK appearance with just one date, but it will be stunning. A free open air gig at the King’s Lynn Hanse Festival @ King’s Staithe Square. We bow appreciatively to whoevers doing the booking for that festival….
Don’t forget Danish band Mew have some UK gigs, which in advance of their much anticipated new album, are likely to be huge. They play Glasgow O2 ABC in Glasgow on May 17th, the excellent Manchester Ritz May 19th, London Roundhouse May 20th
Just been sent details of a Todd Terje gig in Liverpool on the 13th June at St Lukes Bombed Out Church.
Oh and Bjork has announced that date in Manchester at the Castlefield Arena on the 5th July, but I think that’s sold out.
Finally (for now) Ane Brun has announced 3 dates in the UK in December, starting on 2nd December at Islington Assembly Halls, then at the brilliant Manchester Gorilla on the 4th December and finishing in Glasgow on the 5th December
Loads of detailed info there, so please please check artists websites to confirm dates etc!!
