Annie Lewendowski is both an academic from Ithaca, New York, and international superstar multi-instrumentalist & performing member with Evan Parker, Xiu Xiu, ongoing Deerhoof offshoot spinneret.s as well as her band Powerdove.
Powerdove's music is a wandering affair, somehow, constantly peering over at, yet avoiding being drawn towards, 'the line'. It is as if the performers and indeed audience are charged magnets, and the line has an opposite charge. It's an enjoyable journey, traced out amidst the brilliant half improvisations of band mates Thomas Bonvalet and Chad Popple. The band uses a selection of unconventional instrumentation in its live show, such as banjo, percussion, mini keytar etc.
In 2017, Powerdove played their first UK show, at The Old Dentist in London, co-promoted with Muckle Mouth. Though it was a low key affair, the show attracted a great audience, including a Radio 3 producer. The band enjoys good relations with the station, as well as with Resonance FM.
Powerdove toured frequently in Europe, thanks to their label Murailles Music who have done hugely positive things for the band in the European territories. They have expanded the group's profile, forging a weighty footprint and it is off the back of this work that we welcome the band from their three corners of the world: New York, Hamburg and Madrid, to tour the UK in June. We also invite offers for festivals.
In September 2018, the band performed a UK tour, including a date at the prestigious End of the Road festival, for BBC's Late Lounge stage, which was broadcast live.
