Daniel Land brings a full band show to Bristol for the first time in ten years, performing songs from his new album 'The Dream Of The Red Sails', and Daniel Land & The Modern Painters favourites. Tickets £4 in advance, or £5 on the door. With support from Silenzio and Dust Men.
The first Daniel Land & The Modern Painters album, 'Love Songs For The Chemical Generation', was called "One of the finest shoegaze-tinged, ambient guitar records of its time" by Drowned In Sound, and "Like Slowdive reimagined by Phil Spector" by the NME. It is now widely considered to be a modern classic of the shoegaze genre with Daniel a "Dream Pop cult hero" in the words of The Skinny.
Ten years on from 'Love Songs For The Chemical Generation', the new album, 'The Dream Of The Red Sails' is a further refinement of Daniel's classic Shoegaze/Dream Pop style, and he will be touring the UK in February and March, performing songs old and new, with a full live band.
"A dazzling array of atmospheric, mesmerising excursions, serves up a whole range of twists and turns with every subsequent listen".
- DROWNED IN SOUND
"Completely out of fashion with the popular music of today, bearing no relation to anything else being made. And I love it to pieces".
- THE LINE OF BEST FIT
"You can't help but think this is the kind of thing the late John Peel would have loved".
- ROB DA BANK, BBC RADIO 1
