Spiritualized® tour cancelled

Spiritualized Cancel  Sicily show & Standon Calling Festival.

For the first time in a career spanning twenty one years Spiritualized regrettably have to cancel the two upcoming shows in Sicily and the Standon Calling Festival. J. Spaceman has been undergoing a course of medical treatment, which is near completion, and have left us with no choice but to cancel following advice from his medical team.

We have done everything possible to try and do these shows but it recently became apparent that Jason would not be able to perform. We apologise to everyone who is affected and hope they realise that cancellation was the only unavoidable option given the medical circumstances.

Twin Shadow join to Ypsi Fest ’11

FRIDAY 5TH

We’re very happy to announce the confirmation of Twin Shadow in Ypsi Fest ’11 Line Up.

Born in the Dominican Republic, raised in Brooklyn via Florida (U.S.), George Lewis , Jr. aka Twin Shadow released in 2010, with Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor handling production, his first album Forget (4AD/Terrible): One of the prettiest electronic-based records in quite some time arrived via the craftsmanship of George Lewis, Jr., who records as Twin Shadow. With a touch of Kraftwerk-ian minimalism, but the warmth of an endless, summer night in Scandinavia, Lewis’ debut, Forget, is nothing but memorable (Spin) (8.4 rating on Pitchfork).

SUNDAY 7TH

We are happy to announce that Mount Kimbie has joined the Ypsi Fest ’11 Line Up.

The electronic duo from London (UK) is made up of Kai Campos and Dom Maker and is arguably responsible for the birth of the term “post-dubstep”

In early 2009 they released their debut EP, Maybes, via the Hotflush Recordings label.

Later in the year a second EP, Sketch on Glass, appeared and was followed by remixes for the likes of the Big Pink, Foals, and The XX.

At last the waiting is over and we can announce the first band on the lineup of Ypsi Fest ’11.

Yuck are Daniel Blumberg (vocals, guitar), Max Bloom (guitar), Mariko Doi (bass) and Jonny Rogoff (drums) and next summer they’re playing many famous festivals across the world including Primavera Sound and Pitchfork Fest and now we are privileged to have them at Ypsigrock Festival 2011.
