Good On Paper Presents: Mesadorm + Mandel

On Saturday 11th May Good On Paper will be heading to Rodborough for a unique day time concert at Rodborough Church followed by live music and food round the corner at the Prince Albert
(Good On Paper Presents: The LBJBs)...



3:45 - 5PM

Mesadorm return to Stroud as part of their tour promoting new album Epicadus due to be released via Babylegs Records on the 12th April 2019. Epicadus sees the band re-imagine songs from their acclaimed debut album Heterogaster and some new compositions using purely timbres from acoustic instruments in the intimate and beautiful surroundings of Rodborough Church…

Mesadorm is a collaborative project between Blythe Pepino, Aaron Zahl, Daisy Palmer (Paloma Faith, Goldfrapp, MIKA), Jo Silverston (The Unthanks, Red Clay Halo, Frank Turner, Spindle Ensemble) and David Johnston (ZunZun Egui, Phil King, Chairfight!).

The relationships in the project go back many years and have a distinctly Bristol centred heritage. After a few years testing the mainstream stage with a major record deal Pepino moved back to her roots as a left-field, art-rock and electronica song-writer. Here you will find her in happy harmony with Aaron Zahl who has recorded and produced the eagerly anticipated first album fleshing out the musical world with his electronic sound scapery. Having known each other since they were teenagers and weathered various phases of life and musical outfits, Zahl, Pepino, Palmer, Johnston and Silverston have a unique connection that plays out in this project with depth and assuredness. The writing sits somewhere between the domestic observation of Suzanne Vega and the powerful, elemental other-worldliness of Bjork.

“I'm absolutely addicted….Really affecting and beautiful.” Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music
"I love [it] a beautiful record…” Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1
“Melodies that originate in the left field soothing, genuine, and perplexing a real jewel.” Clash Magazine



2:30 - 3:15PM

A new creative partnership between award winning composer Emily Hall (Bedroom Community) and violinist, viola player and singer Misha Law.
