45 A-Side Records Presents: Meursault + Olympic Swimmers + Happy Particles
Stereo (Glasgow) - November 6th - Meursault + Olympic Swimmers + Happy Particles.
Edinburgh based folk heroes Meursault return to Glasgow for the first in 6 months after the release of their critically acclaimed second album 'All Creatures Will Make Merry'. Recent appearances at Glastonbury, End of the Road, T In The Park, Truck and Walk The Line festivals have pushed Meursault further into the spotlight. With their performances in Glasgow becoming increasingly limited this is a rare chance to see them in a headline environment.
"Like fellow Scots Frightened Rabbit and the Twilight Sad, Meursault are ambassadors of misery, self-loathing, and huge, heart-heavy choruses. Most sad bastards can generate a modicum of optimism on January 1. But on "Crank Resolutions", the sadder bastards in Meursault declare, "I broke down on New Year's Day/ And I mixed my drinks/ And I lost my way," among hyperventilating electronic beats and pyrrhic victory shouts. It's enormous fun, of course, and I can't wait to see a live audience sob along to every word." | Pitchfork [7.9]
"After a spin of this sublime record only one word will pass your lips: magnificent." | The Skinny
Support comes from two of Glasgow's finest 'super groups' Olympic Swimmers and Happy Particles.
"Carefully constructed instrumental parts locked together under a beautiful female vocal; lush, meandering guitar parts with throbbing drums and gentle vocals crescendo track after track into powerful stomping climaxes." - Olympic Swimmers Review (Hannah Spencer, Birmingham Academy)
