Jeremy Warmsley’s never been one to rest on his laurels, but the man’s really excelling himself in the next few months. Not only is he debuting his new band, Acres, Acres, this week at two London venues, producing lovely covers with the Little Words, and taking himself off to the Big Apple, he’s also putting together a tour for October. Fwooft.
First things first: Warmsley’s latest project, Acres, Acres (also previously known as the Cold Sweats) are playing their debut gig at the Lexington on Wednesday 19th August. Also performing are Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, an intriguing-sounding “11 piece psyche-hearted sunshine-pop band”. Tickets available here. Warmsley’s band will then play White Heat at Madame Jojo’s alongside Three Trapped Tigers (tickets here) on Thursday 20th.
Jeremy has also announced the grand opening of the Little Words MySpace page. This band is yet another side project and various line-ups have included Euan of Stars of Sunday League and Euan Hinshelwood (a.k.a. Young Husband). This discerning collective have so far covered the songs of the Magnetic Fields, Tom Waits and Daniel Johnstone, and the recordings are well worth a listen.
Warmsley will also play his first NYC gig at Pianos on 23rd September, before jetting back for the Transgressive 5th year anniversary party at the Union Chapel on the 26th with fellow musical wonders Johnny Flynn and Mechanical Bride. Tickets are unlikely to last long for that one. As ever, a busy, busy man.
