Seas of Mirth
Seas of Mirth started to emerge out of maritime-based songwriting and rum guzzling which occured in the late noughties between Cannonball Paul and Al Judders. Lots of stupidity ensued, TVs were thrown out of windows, the sound of a pump organ summoned the onslaught of earthquakes and surely after –

About the Event
Seas of Mirth have been stamping their own mark on modern music for the last decade, mixing up styles and genres while also being known for their aquatic twist. The band’s sound has been taken to a new level on their third full-length album Sub Marine Dreams. Recorded at London’s Total Refreshment Centre by producer Capitol K (known for his work with The Comet Is Coming, Flamingods, Alabaster dePlume) this is a deep-ocean inspired odyssey and various sub marine themes lurk within each of the ten linked tracks.
The extensive instrument checklist includes xylophone, bouzouki, clav organ, accordion, and theremin (to name a few), joined by a shoal of effects and watery samples. The sonic span widens into areas of psyche, dark funk, jazz, disco, ambient, latin and chime-pop – a far cry away from the galleonic jigs and shanty style vocals that made up their sound of old. Comparisons have been made to the likes of Cardiacs, Stereolab, Talking Heads, Parliament, Animal Collective and Frank Zappa.
