The last true heroes of the old South West, Langkamer make good ol’ fashioned guitar music to get your toenails twitching and your heart strings itching. With feel-good pop hits about things like mortality, anxiety and climate change, if you don’t dig Langkamer, you’re probably a square or a narc. Or both.
Bursting onto the scene in 2018 with their debut self-titled EP, the band held tight to their alt-country instincts, with bar-stool singalongs such as ‘The Earthquake’ earning them an array of support slots including The Nude Party, Fenne Lily, The Wave Pictures and Will Varley.
The dawn of a new decade has not stemmed the rivers of creativity. A fresh change came in the form of guitarist Ed Soles and bassist Tom Kelly, who joined Langkamer mainstays Joshua Jarman (vocals/drums) and Dan Anthony (guitar) at the beginning of the year. In the strange, strange summer of 2020, they finally decided to record their long-awaited debut album in the cool confines of iconic Bristol venue, The Louisiana. Produced by Will Carket of Pet Shimmers, ‘West Country’ is a curious blend of old Americana and the spirit of the South-West, brimming with infectious hooks and melodies. Equal parts Laurie Lee and Laurel Canyon, with a peppering of Pavement here and a bite of Big Thief there, this characterful album wears its influences on both sleeves while still offering up a sound entirely their own.
Plus Gobstoppers– Gobstoppers are, as Gobstoppers do. Five guys that love big riffs and big beats almost as much as they dislike misanthropy and injustice. A sloppy tight alternative rock band with a lyrical emphasis and a DIY approach. If Courtney Barnett, Elvis Costello, David Bowie and The Beatles had a party while embarking on a 4am kitchen-philosophy journey, Gobstoppers would be the mess they leave behind.
