31/1-14 Samara Lubelski (US) + Dalia Aymna Sheet (Syria) @ Kontoret

2014 års första Kontoret-konsert bjöd på två instrumentala konserter. Först ut var Dalia Ayman Sheet som i december 2013 anlände till Munkedal på flykt från kriget i hemstaden Aleppo och Syrien. Kvällens huvudakt var Samara Lubelski från New York, US. Samara tog oss med på en 25 minuter lång resa med sin fiol och effektpedaler. Två vackra och suggestiva konserter.
En bra kväll i Uddevalla.

Multiinstrumentalisten Samara Lubelski kommer från New York och har bland annat spelat med Tara Jane O´Neil, Hall Of Fame, Jackie-O-Motherfucker och Tower Recordings. Samara Lubelski även spelat med Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) både live och på skiva.

Samara Lubelski has long been a core figure in the so-called New Weird America, featuring in the seminal works of The Tower Recordings, Hall Of Fame, MV&EE and more, as well as releasing 5 albums of her own and playing in Thurston Moore’s band.

“It’s nearly impossible not to be ensorcelled by Samara Lubelski’s mystical voice. She possesses that rare human instrument that is both otherworldly, and warm and familiar, easily seducing the listener after only a few seconds. Had she been born decades earlier, she most likely would have been musical comrades with sixties chanteuses like Francoise Hardy, Joyce, Brigitte Fontaine, Jane Birkin, etc. Future Slip finds her in top form with lush instrumentation creating the most perfect daydream backdrop for her beautiful vocal delivery. With Thurston Moore in the producer’s chair (returning the favor for all the great playing Samara did on his solo outing Trees Outside The Academy). And it’s really important to note that Samara isn’t just a lady with a gorgeous voice, she’s also such an accomplished musician with a wonderful knack for smart and sizzling song construction. A lot of Future Slip brings us to those more mellow Stereolab moments or when Latetitia Sadier records as Monade. Lubelski also finds kindred spirits in folks like Juana Molina and we have a feeling that Charlotte Gainsbourg’s new album in the works with Beck writing and arranging could become the perfect companion piece for this record. Future Slip sways and swirls with such ease and lingers with such a nice soft psychedelic shimmer.” (Aquarius)
