The 12 Days of Swn-fest: Part 11 – Loose Alldayer with Pipettes, Leisure Society, Lucky Soul et al

Tim and Sams Tim And Sam Band

Tim and Sam's Tim And Sam Band

Emotive, folk-drenched instrumental pop that resonates with flutters of Sigur Ros, Grizzly Bear and Gonzales – all summer skies and tiny crescendos – Tim and Sam’s Tim And Sam Band tremble and tickle with equal measure. Music made for goosebumps.

Debut single Summer Solstice is a wondrous post-folk marvel, a breezy effervescent ride of glockenspiel and banjo with a gorgeous lo-fi cover of Elbow’s One Day Like This on the flipside.

Tim and Sam are joined by Lucky Soul, Leisure Society and the Pipettes. Girl-pop made for daydreams; if the Pipettes buried a time capsule it would contains records by Burt Bacharach and the Chordettes, copies of Jackie and Smash Hits and be covered with polka dots.

Also playing this excellent all-dayer from Cardiff’s delicious Loose are Chris TT, Mitchell Museum, Zissou, All Darlin’, Cat Mouse Cat and the penultimate final ever show from Broken Family Band.

Things kick off at 2.30pm at Chapter while there will also be SWN Mo Wrestling (in the car park 12.00pm-4.00pm), Oxjam Second Hand Record Fayre (in the bar 2.00pm-8.00pm) and Parents + Toddlers DJ Sets (in the bar 12.00pm-6.00pm).

Loose Alldayer with Pipettes, Leisure Society, Lucky Soul et al is at Chapter Arts Centre today.
