Jambinai appearing at this event

Jambinai are the next thrilling instalment in the tale of new Korean music. They sculpt sound in a way that's drawn comparisons to Mogwai, Explosions In The Sky and the crystalline power of Sigur Ros - but they draw deep on Korean traditions. It's not just a stage full of amazing instruments - Korean fiddles, massive zithers blended with glorious lyrical guitars - but also a conscious sense of using the tradition to create something thrillingly new. 'An enthralling post-rock group imagine Godspeed You! Black Emperor melded with strange and wonderful traditional instruments' (Guardian) Post-punk gusto, summoning a brutalist cacophony that is leavened by passages of exquisite tranquillity and post-rock progression ( Q) Koreas Jambinai impressed with their genre-blurring sound, applying traditional folk instruments to eruptive instrumental drone-rock reminiscent of Sonic Youth ( Times)
