Aqueous, winding, corkscrewing – The Auricle is changing. And speaking of corkscrews: in keeping with our mission to provide the rarest and esoteric, we’re starting a new epoch of live sessions with a twist. We’re inviting artists into the studio, not only to play the usual sessions with guitars, keys and drums in tow, but we’re also confiscating their instruments and giving them a box of household items and general rubbish to re-create a track or two. And there’s video evidence to prove it!
#2 – Disappearers
The second band to enter the KCL Radio studio for the Wolf, London’s Disappearers are an imaginative and recondite bunch. At their disposal are sleek and effortless vocals, a keyboard-led stripped down sound punctuated by buffeting baselines. All of this and their eager and amenable manners made them the perfect candidates for our first kitchen sink session. With a jar of peppercorns, chopsticks and chopping board they roamed the corridors and played a rendition of the wonderful Justify Me.
They were also so kind as to record four tracks in the studio. Gorge yourself.
