October’s Ja Ja Ja evening is Matt Bennett, Deputy Editor of Clash magazine, who’s chosen three exceptional bands to bring you an evening of atmospheric soundscapes, electronica, rock and psych-garage drone.

Rökkurró kick the night off with their delicate Icelandic lullabies sung in their native Icelandic tongue, past favourites with Clash magazine who wrote of one recent gig “Rökkurró have a cello-­playing frontwoman with a lovely voice and songs to match.”

Sweden’s The Deer Tracks follow with their blend of ‘Northern Lights Electronica’ described by The Guardian as a “fuzzy, glitchy, melodic. folktronica, recalling MBV’s eerie prettiness”.

And we end the night with Norway’s The Low Frequency in Stereo, dubbed “psych-garage dronemeisters” by Pitchfork, who’ll bring their blend of focused and fresh sounding rock, mixed with dark atmospherics and catchy choruses. More info on all bands below.
