Basco really just want to tell you some stories. Their music ranges from hard hitting, high-speed reels full of rosin dust and sweat, through sweet and melancholy tunes that tell of loves won and lost, fitful fever-dreams of fractal complexity and fascinating texture to songs that, when you come down to it, are really just about sex. Basco’s material is nearly all original, stealing shamelessly and frivolously from Scandinavian, English, Celtic and American idioms to create a kind of organic, soupy stew. If you give it a chance, it’ll lure you into the forest, give you a magic sleeping draught and keep you prisoner in a gilded cage in a tower on a hill in the darkest reaches surrounded by briars until a prince comes and saves you. But in a nice way. Tickets £14, £6 schoolchildren.
