For those of you familiar with the incredible French duo Herman Düne, you would have been upset to hear about the departure of André back in 2006. However, we had a tip off from a friend that he was back doing solo material, and he was playing at the Art Of Tea in Didsbury. We headed down to the cafe, and discovered an extraordinary library in the back of the shop, perfect for this intimate session.

Video: Vincent Nifigance

We discovered Vincent Nifigance after he sent us a link to his songs. We were impressed by his anti-folk style and abstract lyrics. Seth arranged to meet us one Monday morning at the photography department at MMU along with a clip from a ‘straight to VHS’ movie from the 80′s. The over acted surrealism of the footage complemented Vincent Nifigance whimsical performance, and delivers this solemn ceremony.

Silje Nes

We met with Silje Nes prior to her show with Mice Parade at The Ruby Lounge. We went on a prowl for a location that would suit her delicate sound. We dropped into Cup, but was too public and busy. We then attempted to film on Edge street, but we were rudely interrupted by what seemed to be a ‘practical joke’ number of cars. We finally ended up near the craft centre and a building site. A perfect setting for this beautiful, melodic and intimate performance by Silje Nes.
