Horse Lords (US) + Thiago Nassif (BR) at Valby Kulturhus

Double bill with desert free jazz and distorted bossa nova

American Horse Lords return to Copenhagen with their potent mix of freejazz, desert blues and West African rhythms. This time on a magical double bill with the progressive Brazilian songwriter Thiago Nassif’s distorted bossa nova.

Horse Lords
True musical geekdom unfolds in a versatile mix of free jazz, desert blues and djent-inspired polyrhythms when Andrew Bernstein (saxophone, percussion), Max Eilbacher (bass, electronics), Owen Gardner (guitar) and Sam Haberman (drums) come together under the name Horse Lords. With their first outing ‘Horse Lords’ from 2012, the band became a well-regarded name in the progressive music scene, securing them tours with names such as Matmos, Guerilla Toss and Guardian Alien. ‘Interventions’ from 2016 was proclaimed a masterpiece in several places, with its peculiar crossover of improvisation and composition, electronics and hand-played rock, and was found on many lists of the best records of the year.

However, Horse Lords does not only impress on record. Their reputation is not least due to a number of surprising concerts and several strong live videos, which have established their name as a band that you should not cheat yourself to experience live if you get the chance – and you do. November, when they visit Valby Kulturhus.

Thiago Nassif
Thiago Nassif is a Brazilian musician, composer and producer based in Rio de Janeiro, whose impactful mélange of pop, jarring no-wave, and edgy Tropicália has been turning heads the world over. His music is populated by sounds from multiple sources, ranging from composition to sound engineering. Through a diffuse interest in the expressions of contemporary art, Nassif also incorporates the elements and strategies extracted from photography, architecture and visual arts. 

With his first album, “Garconnière”, released in 2009 and built around audio collages, Nassif became active within Sao Paulo’s independent music scene; improvising in clubs and galleries, exploring the visual aspects of sounds and the visual sensations they generate. Since then, he has released collaborated with painters, sculptors and architects, along with some of Brazil’s most exciting talents. This fall, he will visit Valby Kulturhus with his latest Arto Lindsay-coproduced album ‘Mente’: An album that moves between English and Portuguese, contemporary Brazilian music and noise, and from funk carioca to dystopian, distorted bossa nova.
