Hollis Lomax talk to us about fermenting Şalgam, jamming with neighbour Thurston Moore and headlining Glastonbury

Hollis Lomax; consisting of Will Rowland (Keyboard/Vocals) Hugo Keays (Guitar) Will Ellis (Bass Guitar) and Rob Taylor (Drums), are excited about "reaching an audience who'd particularly enjoy our sound" now that lockdown restrictions look set to be eased further. After recently releasing their latest single, Past Time on 28th May, the four piece band, formed at Oxford University, have now secured a "support slot, alongside Pynch (Somebody Else), at The Waiting Room, Stoke Newington in August". The off-set jazzy rhythms of Hollis Lomax incorporate various elements into a mix that they themselves sometimes describe as "angular and mathy". It's not hard to see a link to both Talk Talk or Stereolab, two band's that Hollis Lomax has sited as an influence (Listening to their sound, I'm pretty sure early Metronomy must be on the band's radar too). Before they start playing to live audiences again, and ahead of a dream tour with Adele, we caught up with the creative band to discover what they're up to.

Steve Albini, Thurston Moore, El-P & more feature in new Lil BUB coffee table book

From featuring on Run the Jewels' Meow the Jewels and rocking out with Andrew W.K. to interviewing Steve Albini on her Big SHOW (not to mention having him on a 2019 live edition held in Asbury Park, where he, Kelley Deal, and Fred Armisen performed a song for her), internet famous cat Lil BUB had a couple of paws planted in the music world.

AMN Reviews: Dave Tucker, Pat Thomas, Thurston Moore, and Mark Sanders – Educated Guess Vol. 1 (2021; 577 Records)

Recorded Live at London’s Cafe Oto on March 4, 2020, right before lockdown began, this grouping of three UK-based improvisers and American Moore was one of those experiments that turned out better in practice even though it must have looked good on paper. Educated Guess Vol. 1 is two long tracks, 17 and 20 minutes respectively. On it, guitarists Tucker and Moore layer abstract chording, prickly runs, and note-bending over Sander’s rhythmless drumming. Thomas contributes his usual percussive piano, but often takes more of a background role by adding weird electronics and spacy keyboard lines.
