Simon Price is a master of creating music that is at once infinite and immediate. As a member of British heavyweights The Heads, he has journeyed with the band through two decades of brain-bending heavy psych, releasing 20 full-lengths in various editions, recording several Peel Sessions, and cultivating a following that surpasses most definitions of “cult”. As kandodo, Price offers a more introspective take on the empyrean. On k2o, released last month via Thrill Jockey Records, kandodo’s second full-length, Price presents listeners with languid expanses of guitar and keyboard that are deceptively detailed and immaculately constructed.
kandodo will be playing a co-headline gig with Californian drudes Carlton Melton in London this Wednesday (25th September) at The Lexington and tickets are available for £7 (+ booking fee) HERE.
In other Simon Price news, The Heads have been confirmed as the Artist in Residence at Roadburn Festival 2014 following in the footsteps of Enslaved, Circle, Justin K Broadrick and Neige (Alcest) and as part of the residency, he will play 3 sets, firstly with kandodo performing as a three piece on Friday April 13th at Het Patronaat. The Heads will play a live set for the first time with John McBain on Saturday April 12th at the Main Stage. The Heads (ft. John McBain)’ residency will lead in to a collaboration with fellow psychedelic travellers Carlton Melton in a one-off Roadburn exclusive performance on Sunday April 13th at the Main Stage, while Carlton Melton will also be playing their own set at Roadburn (scheduled for Saturday April 12th).
