Spacial Riesling @ Little Welders Dog

Welder's Dog Bar cnr Marsh and Rusden Streets, ARMIDALE, NSW

Spatial Riesling is your local gateway to the world of psychedelic easy listening – strange landscapes on a quixotic road trip, trees bearing the wrong fruit and strongly suspected harmonic mismanagement. Armidale musicians, Pat Harris (bass, guitar, vocals and loops) and Dave van Tongeren (drums and percussion) use rhythmic layering to create improvised abstracts where feeling and colour are the name of the game.
