For a Minor Reflection
Her Name is Calla - The Devil May Cares

Monday 2. November 2009
@ The Lexington, 96-98 Pentonville Road, London
@ 19:30-22:30
For a Minor Reflection comprises of four 19-year-olds from Reykjavík, Iceland. Their music is best described as energetic, melodious post-rock, though being the natural creative visionaries they are, the band expand and even subvert their style with almost every song. They supported Sigur Ros on their last tour in the UK. This band is for fans of Godspeed you! Black Emperor & Explosions in the Sky.

Her Name is Calla produce an intensity rarely seen these days, a mix of hushed tones and wailing guitars with brass and strings throw in for good measure. This UK-based collective have an almost slow-core element to their music but it's bigger and louder and longer than all of that. A must see.
The Devil May Cares are a new nine-piece ensemble stretched pretty evenly across addresses in London and Brighton. The band began life as a six-piece choir, playing a handful of shows in Brighton last year, and they have since been introducing guitar, bass, drums, piano and on the occasion, when one is to hand, a saxophone or something else that squawks to the theatrical, wordy, and often lengthy songs. Comparisons by audience members at an earlier wave of shows mentioned A Silver Mount Zion and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.
