Melting Vinyl presents

The Weather Station

 
 
 
On her fourth (and tellingly self-titled) album as The Weather Station, Polaris Prize-nominated (Canada’s Mercury!) Tamara Lindeman reinvents – and more deeply roots – her extraordinary, acclaimed songcraft, framing her precisely detailed, exquisitely wrought prose-poem narratives in bolder and more cinematic musical settings. The result is her most sonically direct and emotionally candid statement to date, a work of profound urgency and artistic generosity.
 
The Weather Station is the fourth—and most forthright—album by The Weather Station. The most fully realized statement to date from Toronto songwriter Tamara Lindeman, it is a work of profound urgency, artistic generosity, and joy. Self-titled and self-produced, the album unearths a vital new energy from Lindeman’s acclaimed songwriting practice, marrying it to a bold new sense of confidence.
 
Lindeman’s songwriting has always been deconstructive, subtly undermining the monoliths of genre with her sly sense of complexity and irony. She has generally been characterized as a folk musician, and yet with its subtext of community and tradition, the term “folk” has never quite fit The Weather Station’s work; the songs are too specific and lacerating. So appropriately, Lindeman’s so-called “rock and roll record” suspiciously stares down those genre signifiers—big, buzzing guitars, thrusting drums—and interweaves horror-movie strings and her keening, Appalachian-tinged vocal melodies. Reaching towards a sort of accelerated talking blues, she sings with a new rapid-fire vocal style, filling a few of these short, bruising songs with enough lyrics to populate a full album.

“Timeless… Measured, perceptive storytelling. A singer with an unmistakable & communicative voice, able to convey hope & hurt with equal clarity.” – Pitchfork

“She writes literate songs with unusual precision & sings them in an understated, open-hearted way that lends good poetry the directness of conversation.” – Uncut

The Sassy Cabaret

We all know the post Christmas season is a drag….so what better way to chase away those seasonal blues and get some colour back into your lives than to party with The Sassy Cabaret Club crew!

Let us bring you a night filled with joyously vivid wonderment and whacky entertainment as only we know how! We guarantee you’ll leave our show with all the smiles, merriment and glitter to welcome you into the Spring!

This unique cabaret experience offers a sit down burlesque show featuring hand picked acts who will dazzle and delight, followed by a good old knees up after party where you can rub shoulders with the cast and dance your little sparkly socks off!

And that’s not all!

We also offer a jam packed cast of pre show magic, fire, a glitter stall, gallantly roaming stage hands, mood setting décor, beautiful bar staff and much more!

This is officially set to be our last regular show…….so if you want to catch the Brighton burlesque show everyone’s talking about before it takes a bit of a sabbatical…..now is the time!

Tickets sold out in advance for our last event so we strongly advise booking as early as possible to avoid disappointment! Our venue is gorgeously intimate so tickets are limited!

Any group bookings please let us know ahead of time so we can set up the room appropriately to accommodate your good selves.
