After the scorching solo set of Tom Carter at AB Salon (2016), his acclaimed duo with Christina Carter Charalambides, will play a series of European concerts for the first time since 2011 in support of their exquisite new release ‘Charalambides: Tom and Christina Carter’ for Drawing Room. On Sunday October 28th they play a concert at AB Salon, a collaboration between AB and Oorstof. This is a free of entrance concert ! on the base of first come first served, so come on down early, doors open at 19.30.
Touching on the outer limits of acid folk, psych rock, and improvisation, the music of Charalambides remains uniquely personal and consistent. Despite Tom and Christina Carter’s prolific solo careers and numerous other projects, Charalambides has existed in an unbroken trajectory for over two-and-a-half decades, outlasting the genres that critics and other yardstick-makers have tried to cram them into. Their recent performances and recordings retain the directness and delicate menace that mark their early releases, even as they explore an interlocking musical telepathy honed by years of artistic collaboration.
Aptly tilted Charalambides: Tom and Christina Carter, the newest album from Charalambides for Drawing Room furthers the duo’s deep psychic understanding of music. Laid down in two sessions with no overdubs, the album entwines their best known approaches into a raw, fragile, wordless and hypnotic whole. It’s definitely the duo at their most exquisite. In support of this new release Charalambides will come to Europe for the first time since 2011. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to catch this unique duo live on stage …
