Xylouris White

Saturday 17th December @ Melbourne Recital Centre, Southbank

Xylouris White, the unlikely collaboration between Dirty Three drummer Jim White and Cretan lute player George Xylouris, follow-up their sold-out Melbourne club show appearances with a return tour this December.

Xylouris White’s debut album Goats (2014) went to No.1 on the Billboard World Music charts and The Guardian Australia applauded their Sydney Festival 2015 performance, calling it a ‘heavenly union’, the chemistry between ‘Xylouris and White makes for a thrilling musical foray into avant-garde folk.’

'The pensive joy within Goats stems from two musicians of seemingly disparate backgrounds, communicating together with the tools they know best and as well as anyone else who has ever used them. Here though, with new partners and parameters, they’ve struck upon something challenging, wholly inventive, and rewarding.’ Pitchfork

With guests Tiny Ruins

Weyes Blood

Weyes Blood

Friday 20th January @ Northcote Social Club, Northcote

Touring Melbourne for the first time in January in full band formation. Though Natalie Mering, who performs and records as Weyes Blood, chose to distort her project’s name (giving “Wise” an appropriately outré, olde feel) with a nod to the ocular (w’eyes), her entire output thus far has been an exercise in exploring the atemporal.

Warpaint

Friday 24th February @ Melbourne Zoo

Californian dream pop and indie-rock band Warpaint are playing Melbourne Zoo Twilights in 2017, supported by Brooklyn’s Big Thief.

Warpaint’s studio albums, including their newly released third album Heads Up (2016) – which The Age dubbed “album-of-the-year contender” – emphasize moody atmospheres: gauzy keyboards, hypnotic harmonies and sinister grooves. This will be Warpaint’s third time in Australia, and first since their 2014 slot on the national Laneway Festival.

Big Thief’s music is rooted in the songs of singer Adrianne Lenker, filled with characters and visceral narratives, songs that pivot in the space of a few words. Beat called their debut album Masterpiece “an honest and disarming account of the pain that comes with the gradual erosion of innocence and love.”

Playing at Melbourne Zoo
Friday 24 February 2017

Mick Turner has had a dynamic and celebrated career as founding member of Dirty Three and will be performing his highly acclaimed solo work at Melbourne Zoo Twilights.

Friday 10th March @ Melbourne Zoo

Canadian folk-pop singer-songwriter Martha Wainwright is making her Melbourne Zoo Twilights debut with support from New York’s Margaret Glaspy.

Throughout her career spanning two decades, she has shown great musical maturity and talent as a songwriter, stunning audiences with her incredible range and ability.

Singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy blends thoughtful song writing with simple melodies and a grungy rock edge, enamouring listeners with her intimate yet commanding sound. On her debut album Emotions and Math (2016) Pitchfork notes she has “the self-scrutinizing intimacy of Elliott Smith and the imaginative melodic intonations of Joni Mitchell.”
