The Jimmy Cake
“In the time it takes The Jimmy Cake to make an album, The Joinery has established itself as a vital artery in the circulation of underground music in Dublin. It will be sorely missed and we are privileged to be part of the closing proceedings. Fresh from our crazy cabin on Space Mountain and with a thousand yard stare we simply have to share, we are tremendously excited to have a beast of a double LP ready for release in very early 2015 and are positively itching to start playing live again. For this rather special occasion we will be playing as a reduced unit to bring you some free-form sonic excursions that will soothe the soul while breaking into your house while you’re at the show.”
Catscars has toured internationally and been part of major festivals and events including NOVA Festival, Sao Paulo, The Model Arts Centre Opening, Sligo, and Electric Picnic.
Building from the dark themes of her first album (Construction), Catscars’ current work continues to be concerned with form and function, noise and beauty, the night, and lovers lost at sea.
Using the NDS as her primary tool, it is combined with Kraftwerkian rhythms, industrialised soundscapes and delicate melodies to incite you to feel and move.
