DUST presents Flamingods in Dubai on 22nd October 2014

DUST is a hosting a gig this week that I am very excited about, and if you live in Dubai and interested in new music, you should be too.

Flamingods is a band that consists of members based in Dubai and in the UK. After touring across the UK, they will be performing in Dubai for the first time this Wednesday, 22nd October at The Music Room.

Kamal Rasool, one of the founding members describes the band as "culturally confused" and according to the band's Facebook page, they "like to make noise with instruments collected from around the world".

Their latest album Hyperborea has been receiving good reviews. The band gets compared to  Animal Collective in almost every article I read about them, their music videos are mash ups of clips found on YouTube, and according to DUST, we should expect a "night of Indie, Rock, Funk, Psych, Punk, Electronic, Dub, Latin, Afro, Arabic, Asian flavours".

Read this interview on The Quietus which will give you a sense of what the band is about, and you can listen to (and buy) their music here

Flamingods will be supported by Parallel Sound System,  a "three piece Electro Dream Pop" and DubHigh, a four piece "Dub-Experimental band from Dubai" and DUST and Bad House Party DJs.

I am REALLY looking forward to this gig. Below is a taste of the music you will hear on the night (links to each band's Soundcloud page is added at the end of this post).
