Conquering Animal Sound
Saturday, March 9th, 2013 at 8:00pm
Superlative Scottish electronica duo Conquering Animal Sound return to Limbo on Saturday 9th March to mark the launch of their second album, On Floating Bodies (due out in March via revered indie label Chemikal Underground), after Europe lapped up their debut, Kammerspiel, so appreciatively in 2011.
Comprising Anneke Kampman and James Scott, both residents of Glasgow, CAS’s brand of pop (and it is pop, make no mistake) is rendered through a kaleidoscope of clicks, tape hiss, synths and a myriad of micro-electronica to produce something that’s bewitching and entirely immersive.
“a typically thrilling set of choral electronica, ambient rapture and local resonance... The new songs advance Scott and singer Anneke Kampman’s knack for techno with a warm pulse, an exquisite voice and a big pop heart and the duo seemed more in command of their intricate technical live set-up than ever. Kampman’s arresting, self-manipulated vocals remain impressively measured (her words and elocution are crucial), but here they appeared to lead the songs, where once they interwove” (Nicola Meighan, The Herald)
“With Kammerspiel, Conquering Animal Sound have simultaneously managed to capture on record the full depth of their creativity and imagination, as well as the inherent beauty of their sound. It is a wonderful piece of work which deseves to be cherished, and gives us far more than we might reasonably expect from anyone’s debut album” (Drowned In Sound)
“a diverse and imaginative piece of work” (The Skinny)
First support comes from genius Perth experimental/electronica duo Pumajaw, who have been touring the globe for over a decade now and wowed Limbo twice before with their equally avant garde take on pop music, dazzling media critics right across the board, from The Wire and Uncut to Marie Claire. This date follows the release of their new album, Demonmeowmeow, with the duo embarking on a fresh European tour of their own in April.
Edinburgh soloist Plum completes the package, her own take on electronic pop drawing a comparison to Nikki & The Dove and The Knife for her from Scottish new music champion Ally McCrae (BBC Radio 1). Plum released her own fourth album, The Seed, last year.
The Black Spring DJs will be joining the dots before, between and after the bands as usual.
