Music: Meursault @ Liquid Room


It used be that you’d never need to go more than a couple of weeks without seeing Meursault playing in Edinburgh. Now however, it’s turned into a can’t-miss biannual phenomenon where sorely missed backdrops like The Bowery’s are left behind for stages better suited to Neil Pennycook’s ever growing and ever tending towards americana outfit. Well tonight just so happens to be one of those nights, for tonight is the first of series of gigs at Liquid Room orchestrated by local festival-doers Haddowfest. Compered by BBC Radio 1’s Ally McCrae and featuring Withered Hand and FOUND (both hand picked by Meursault themselves) proceedings promise to be a fairly eclectic. An expected mix of classics from 2009’s Good News and new tracks should be a treat from Withered Hand who’ll be in full band formation. They’ll be on early so make sure you get along sharp! Currently a band in flux, losing a member to fatherhood and adding a drummer in recent months, I’m hoping FOUND will make the same jump Meursault did when they swapped electronics for acoustic drums between All Creatures Will Make Merry and Something For The Weakened. And as if you need any persuading as to why you can’t miss Meursault this time around, simply click below. Doors are at 7.
