    NEHH: Meursault 10th Anniversary Show

  • When
    17 February 20:00 - 18 February 00:00
    Hosted by:

    2018 marks the 10th anniversary of my first record.
    Ten years. That’s not that long is it? Or is it? I mean… for a dog, ten years is ages. For a dog your lucky if you get ten years. Conversely, for an oak tree, ten years is bugger all. Makes you think.
    To mark the occasion I’m going to play the album and the ‘Nothing Broke’ EP in their entirety.
    While I’m not usually one for birthday celebrations, the landscape of Meursault (as a project) has changed so drastically over the years that I thought it’d be interesting to play these songs and find out what they sounded like through the filter of fresh context.
    I’ll be joined onstage by some familiar faces and special guests as I shamefully indulge in past glories, basking in the warm glow of self indulgence and nostalgia.

    "Whoever they superficially sound like, Meursault have their own, distinct sound, thanks to Pennycook's beautiful, melancholy songs and his instantly recognisable voice, which can switch between a sweet, Neil Young-like falsetto on the acoustic A Small Stretch of Land to a bleak howl on the stomping, memorable The Furnace.” - The Scotsman

    “Any song that invokes A-Ha, Daft Punk and speed-metal riffage is a certified winner.”- Plan B

    “…there’s more than a hint of bleakness and isolation in this intriguing experiment in sonic hybridisation…” - MOJO ★★★★

    “…a formidable display of ingenious poise and balance.”
