Fabulous Diamonds (Melbourne) Saturday December 11th
HSP is pleased to present the NZ tour of processional dub and crypt punk diviners,
FABULOUS DIAMONDS from Melbourne, Australia. Following their US excursion alongside Pigeons and Wet Hair, and their sophomore LP on Siltbreeze (Times New Viking, Sic Alps, US Girls), the duo’s heavenly garage anthems, liminal haunt funk, and transfixing, psychedelic mantras are poised to captivate audiences around the country in mid-December.
Likened to a lysergic union of Lee Perry, Terry Riley, Suicide, Silver Apples and Young Marble Giants, what Pitchfork calls Fabulous Diamonds’ ‘part pagan sleepover incantation’ and ‘lush and trippy’ minimalism is a UFO potion of radiant synth arpeggia, lock-groove futurist-Baroque riffage, celestial chant and post-disco percussive clatter that has a disquieting, modal beauty and entrancing, cosmic unease. This is the duo’s first NZ visit.
Orchestra of Spheres are keepers of the psychedelic flame, entrancing crowds with a diverse array of instrumentation (including drums, biscuit tin guitar, gamelan, keyboards, and bass organ!), hypnotic grooves and cosmic atmospheres. Their live show has been known to make the most rhythmically retarded shake their money maker, get on the good foot and leapfrog into space. NZ Musician magazine (Aug. 2010) called their album Nonagonic Now "free improv that you can get down and party to." Fellow Wellingtonians Diana Rozz have supported the likes of Deerhoof and Die! Die! Die!, partied with Dan Deacon, and bring a refreshingly entertaining approach to the live stage along with some seriously great tunes.

Wellington Saturday 11 December, Happy with Diana Rozz and Orchestra of Spheres.
