5000, Organ Grinder Records and Brainlove Records presents FIREWORKS NIGHT and BLEEDING HEART NARRATIVE, 17 November 2011

Fireworks Night & Bleeding Heart Narrative join forces for a one-off double release party with support from Bastardgeist (US). Presented with Organ Grinder Records and Brainlove Records

“Awesome” – Time Out.

Fireworks Night celebrate the release of their new album ‘One Winter, One Spring’ on Organ Grinder Records (November 5th), which sees the band lovingly embrace two of popular music’s most seductive elements; rhythm and the pleasure of the chorus. The intricate arrangements and compelling lyrical narratives of their previous records still remain but this time they are played by a band smitten with music as a vehicle for joy as well as sorrow, a combination which has made them an unusually exhilarating band – able at once to move feet, head and heart.

“A dizzyingly talented dash-cutting ensemble trading in claret confessionals and gravel voiced, tobacco-stained drama, all told via nigh-on perfect string accompaniment and fantastic songwriting flair.” – Drowned in Sound

Bleeding Heart Narrative are a London sextet who weave together beautiful sounds with a haunting intensity. You might hear the shimmer of Tortoise or Steve Reich built into a song that could be played on an Arcade Fire-sized stage, or pick out Battles-esque repetition in a Mogwai-sized crescendo – but it’ll always be Bleeding Heart Narrative you’re listening to.

“Musically sumptuous and highly arresting… pulled off with an enviable sense of beauty and inspired musicality” – The Quietus

‘Bison’ is their first release on Brainlove Records, and follows their acclaimed 2010 album ‘Tongue Tangled Hair’.

“Filled with lush instrumentation” – The Line Of Best Fit

Opening proceedings is Bastardgeist, the brainchild of Chicago-based musician Joel Midden. Through layers of kalimba, processed vocals, and a handful of circuitous samples and found percussion he has crafted a bedroom opus of singular vision and ambitious design.

“A bed of stimulating sonics… detailed yet uncluttered with a captivating beauty.” – Shook Mag
