CATE LE BON hails from Carmarthenshire, rural West Wales and is currently a resident of Highland Park, Los Angeles, having relocated across the Pacific, coinciding with the recording of her new album, Mug Museum.
As well as describing the personnel involved in Mug Museum, "Welsh - Californian" is a phrase that captures the album's sound: woozily melodic, dreamily confident and wrapped in a hazy psychedelic gauze. This is a record made with the type of clarity that follows a change in perspective and situation. There is a directness and openness across the ten tracks that suggest everyone involved had discovered the same lightness of touch and sense of purpose.
KEVIN MORBY, known for his work as the singer/guitarist for the Brooklyn band The Babies and bassist for Woods, will open the night. The Kansas City native and new Los Angeles resident, recently released his solo debut, Harlem River, which he calls "an homage to New York City," his adopted home for the past five years.
