LAURA J MARTIN

NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE: The Head of Steam

SAT 2ND AUG, 2014 7.30pm

LAURA J MARTIN hails from the suburbs of Liverpool with influences that ricochet between Serge Gainsbourg, Wu Tang Clan, David Bowie and Herbie Mann. Mining the strange, darker underbelly of folk with untold layers of intrigue, she flits effortlessly between flute, mandolin and piano, as well as using looped vocals and instruments to great effect. There’s an otherworldliness to the off-kilter, psychedelic feel of her music, which made her an ideal choice to support the likes of Scout Niblett, Buck 65, Little Dragon, Gruff Rhys, Diane Cluck and Jonny (Euros from Gorkys and Norman from Teenage Fanclub’s band), with whom she appeared as both guest and support.

In January 2012 Laura J Martin released her eagerly anticipated debut album, The Hangman Tree on Static Caravan as well as the EP Bonus Skor, a collaborative project she did in Iceland with Mike Lindsay (Tunng). Armed with a flute ready for wrangling, mandolin and a loop station, she sings over her loops and beats. In autumn last year Laura's follow up album, Dazzle Days, was released to critical acclaim.

A Marc Riley/BBC 6 Music favourite, this is going to be very special.
