I’ve programmed the next instalment of Gail Priest’s excellent Pretty Gritty series – in an evening dubbed ‘Of Most Excellent Provenance‘. As you may be able to tell from the title, it’s a showcase for three Provenance artists – Medicine Voice (pictured), Lortica and Shoeb Ahmad (from Spartak), taking place at 107 Projects in Redfern on Sunday 4 December.  Here’s the blurb:

Pretty Gritty #17 / Provenance
Sunday Dec 4, 2016

The final Pretty Gritty for 2016 teams up with the most excellent record label Provenance, the latest most excellent venture by the tireless Stuart Buchanan, to offer a small sampling of the most excellent stable of innovative altpopelectronicaambientdroneexotica.

In a split set (like a split album — it’s a new thing as of now) Lortica will morph himself into When We Never offering his hypertextured, super-psych drone dreamscapes. Hiking up the Hume from the ACT, Shoeb Ahmad will bliss us away with his shimmering guitar and spacey pop deconstructions. Finally Medicine Voice’s transcendent vibrations will send us into the sublime as she launches her hypnotic new single.

5.30pm-9pm, $12 full / $10 Concession
107 Projects, 107 Redfern St, Redfern
