GoGo Penguin Live At The Royal Albert Hall

gogopenguin

Soundcrash are extremely proud to announce that Blue Note Records’ GoGo Penguin will be debuting their new album, A Humdrum Star, at one of the worlds greatest venues, the Royal Albert Hall. 

Based in Manchester, Gogo Penguin are a leftfield piano trio made up of pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Blacka, and drummer Rob Turner. Their music has been described as acoustic-electronica, but they draw equally on rock, jazz, and glitchy-electronica to create their unique and spellbinding sound.

A favourite among critics, GoGo Penguin’s music has been associated with the likes of Aphex TwinSquarepusherMassive Attack, and Brian Eno. In September 2014, v2.0 was also shortlisted for the Mercury Prize Album of the Year.

A spectacular band in what is perhaps London’s most iconic venue, this night is truly one of a kind and absolutely unmissable for GoGo Penguin fans.

“Rhapsodic themes and driving grooves” – The Guardian

Event Review: GoGo Penguin @ Roundhouse (London; Thursday 8th February 2018)

GoGo Penguin‘s Man Made Object – released on the exalted Blue Note in 2016 – showed merely a peek towards the progressive direction of the trio. The band’s new album, A Humdrum Star serves as a hat tip towards Carl Sagan’s TV series Cosmos, highlighting a phrase which demonstrates just…

Review: Jazz Re:Found (Turin, Italy – 7th to 11h December 2016)

Today, black music is warmth, experimentation, crossbreeding, avant-garde, tradition, and rhythm. Turin’s Jazz Re:Found festival explores these definitions, with a curious and forward thinking vision on music, honouring great names of the past while looking at the most current scenes with a sharp eye and sensitive ear. Spread across seven…
