Methyl Ethel, the musical project of Jake Webb, has announced details of a special headline London show at Peckham Audio on 19th November. This will be the first outing as a duo, where Webb will be joined onstage by regular live band member Thom Stewart. The pair will also open for Mac DeMarco on his forthcoming European tour next month. Tickets for all shows are now on sale. Visit methylethel.com for more details.
Methyl Ethel’s latest album Triage is the third of a triptych Webb started with Oh Inhuman Spectacle (2015) and continued with Everything Is Forgotten (2017) which was named Best Independent Album by AIR, the Australian Independent Record Labels Association. Methyl Ethel has always been a surrealist outfit – a dark and obscured expression of life set to the backdrop of dream pop hooks. But Triage is a more reflective album – one that explores the notion of coming of age, only to reference it for the snapshots and passing memories that it has become.
