Tonight in LA: Stornoway at the Troubadour
Filed under: Tonight in LA | Posted by:

Oxford, England band Stornoway are set to take the stage tonight for the first time ever in Los Angeles with a show at the Troubadour. The band is currently touring in support of their debut full-length release, Beachcomber’s Windowsill (out now via 4AD). We had the distinct pleaure of catching them live in London in November as part of the Little Noise Sessions at Union Chapel. There was something quite special about hearing the hymn-like chants of “Zorbing” echo out across those hallowed halls and despite numerous sound issues (the venues fault, not Stornoway’s), they proved a patient and inventive bunch with trumpets, old TVs and The Keyboard Choir thrown in for good measure.¬† If they could be that good in a huge chapel with sound issues and limited time, one can only imagine how powerful they would be on a smaller, more intimate¬† Troubadour-like scale.¬† The show tonight is all ages with Seattle’s The Head and the Heart supporting.
