NALLE
Nalle are a Glasgow-based three piece featuring Hanna Tuulikki (vocals, kantele, flutes), Aby Vulliamy (viola) and Chris Hladowski (bouzouki, clarinet), who also moonlight as members of their hometown's jazz-folk big band Scatter. The Nalle sound is one blissed out, expansive drone, comparable to Tuulikki's Finnish compatriots Lau Nau or Islaja, but with a distinctly Anglo-Scottish twist. Nalle is like a children's toy - indeed the word is Finnish for teddy bear - a transition object between us and the world. Fused with magic, the haunting songs and sprawling melodies speak of our relationship with the sun, the mountains, and the ravens. Nalle's first full-length 'By Chance Upon Waking' is out now on Pickled Egg Records, and was hailed as "a masterclass in drone" by no less a source than Plan B.

The One Ensemble is now, in fact, four in number. Once the solo domain of Volcano The Bear's Daniel Padden, the Ensemble has recently expanded to include Peter Nicholson on cello, along with Chris and Aby of Nalle on bouzouki and viola once again. Fusing Eastern European traditions, classical chamber music, mystical minimalism and free jazz into a heady brew, the Ensemble's music is otherworldly, magical and unmistakably beautiful. Check out their numerous releases for Catsup Plate, Textile and many more, if further proof is required.

Farewell You Porcupine


AUM SAHIB
Aum Sahib are a London-based collective - sometimes they are 2 people, sometimes they are 10 - who shroud themselves in a peculiar air of mystery. As the name suggests, they are heavily influenced by Arabian melodies, but meld this with a Western approach to improv, producing hypnotic loops of bass, electronic tabla, shruti box, flutes, pipes, sampled noise, spokenword and vocal drones.
