24 July @ Mama Rosa Bar, the coolest bar with the coolest people in Setubal

"In the summer of 2009, two musicians from Bern started to get bored of just standing around in clubs. As neither of them could dance very well, and considering that the view from the stage was better than the view at the bar, they joined forces and brought the Electro-Duo "We Love Machines" to life and started producing banging tracks and remixes. Distortion, Vintage Analog-Synths and Computers filtered though an unmistakable background in Rock and a taste for French House music, drive a sound that makes even the most unwilling Barfly want to get up and dance."

Is case to say that talent is not measured by age, Last year my radar missed the debut album from Bombay Bicycle Club, i knew the name but for some weird never paid much attention to this band, the 2009 debut album "I Had the Blues But I Shook Them Loose" is a wonderful indie album from a club of Londoners average 16 years.
Now one year later they take a radical new direction and release a album of acoustic reliques "Flaws" featuring covers of songs by John Martyn and Joanna Newsom.

Recorded while touring over the past year and a half, a few early tracks were produced by Neill MacColl (guitarist Jamie's Dad), the rest was recorded and produced in Jack Steadman's bedroom and the result is stunningly beautiful.

Through analyses of swarm activity and social revolution, 'Coalition of the Willing' makes a compelling case for the new online activism and explains how to hand the fight against global warming to the people."
