Fierce & fuzzy, melodic & morbid, the brill Porridge Radio clip together raw, vulnerable DIY tunes that are, in their own words, “2 cups of emotion for every tablespoon of salt”.
After seeing them on their glorious Evans the Death tour last year, we’re delighted to finally bring them to you at Gwdihw.
Support comes from the also lovely & scuzzy HODAD & Oh Peas & more TBC.
“So much sass, story and sarcasm are crammed into the group’s brutally raw, upfront album ‘Rice, Pasta and Other Fillers’.
Across these ten tracks (one of which is a Daniel Johnston cover), Porridge Radio combine occasional moments of earnestness with did-i-just-hear-that lyrics and freakout musicianship. “I can’t make you feel,” they claim on ‘Danish Pastry Lyrics’, but that’s a fib. It’s impossible to feel nothing from these songs. So much of this music sounds spontaneous, to the point where it relies on spur-of-the-moment intuition and boundless energy to get by. It’s a feeling that translates.” – DIY Mag
