SEISMIC SEA - ROOM #1 -
WARM DIGITS aka Newcastle based Andrew Hodson and Steve Jefferis released their third album Wireless World, and first for Memphis Industries, on 4th August 2017. They are the Newcastle-upon-Tyne duo that, in the words of legendary DJ/producer Andrew Weatherall, create “Machine funk kraut-a-delia – it’s rather lovely!”. Warm Digits' brew of live drums, guitar and electronics betray a love of Neu!, Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, My Bloody Valentine and Boards Of Canada. Motorik percussion, electronic basslines, Keith Levene-style guitar chops and squelchy analogue warmth are accompanied by live visuals in performances that have graced the Psych Fests of both London and Liverpool, seen them support the likes of Goblin, Modeselektor, ESG, St. Etienne, Moon Duo and many more, toured the UK with British Sea Power and blown the audience away at Supersonic and many other festivals. Their blistering live sets of "krautophonic blizzard-wave" have become have to be seen to be believed.
As Rock-A-Rolla magazine put it, Warm Digits’ music is built on “such classic acquainted tones that they absolutely must have been made in Germany in the early 1970s and yet others embody everything progressive about modern day electronic music”.
Their first album, Keep Warm. . . with the Warm Digits, came out in 2011 on Newcastle’s Distraction Records; the second album Interchange followed in 2013, an album and experimental film that grew out of an invitation to work with Tyne & Wear Archives on the Half Memory project (which also generated Richard Dawson's acclaimed "The Glass Trunk") and saw the band make a work inspired by archive photographs and plans of the Tyneside Metro system, with the recordings marking a further a step up in intensity and energy.
The band have also been busy with an array of collaborations and multimedia projects, notably writing and performing the film score for Asunder, a collaboration with Field Music and Royal Northern Sinfonia, writer Bob Stanley and filmmaker Esther Johnson on a documentary film exploring the impact of World War One on the North-East.
They’ve remixed Dutch Uncles, Maximo Park, UNKLE, and Plank! - and been remixed by Justin Robertson - and got a heavy dose of adoration from BBC 6Music (particularly Marc Riley, with whom they have recorded three live sessions).
For their new recordings, the band have sharpened up all the elements of their sound for a set of crisp, propulsive and melodically rich songs, and for the first time on selected songs have collaborated with some of their favourite vocalists: Peter Brewis of Field Music, Sarah Cracknell of Saint Etienne, Devon Sproule, and Mia La Metta of Beards.
