Complimentary drinks, courtesy of The Analog Vault. Admission is free.


About the album:

"In typical fashion, Sean Lam explores the deeply personal in Hanging Up The Moon’s fourth and latest album. Just like nothing that happens is ever lost if you hold it in your mind, “It’s All Here Somewhere” is a repository of poignant memories, unspoken fears, faltering hope.


Sean is joined once again by long-time collaborators Alexius Cai, Dean Aziz and Victor Low. “It’s All Here Somewhere” also features Darren Ng (SONICBRAT) and Andy Chia (SA) on selected tracks." — https://www.hangingupthemoon.com

About Hanging Up The Moon:

Hanging Up The Moon started off as the solo project of Sean Lam, ex-frontman of Concave Scream, one of Singapore's pioneer indie bands. Recorded entirely in his study in the wee hours of the morning, the self-titled debut album was a stripped-down affair, its quiet sound captivating both critics and listeners alike.
In the albums that followed, Hanging Up The Moon explored different soundscapes with the help of good friends and fellow veterans of the local music scene: Alexius Cai (Piblokto), Dean Aziz (Concave Scream), Leslie Low (The Observatory) and Victor Low (Affixen).

The band has since released 2 vinyl LPs and is currently preparing for the launch of "It's All Here Somewhere", Hanging Up The Moon's fourth and latest album. Just like nothing that happens is ever lost if you hold it in your mind, "It's All Here Somewhere" is a repository of poignant memories, unspoken fears, faltering hope.

Sean is joined once again by long-time collaborators Alexius Cai, Dean Aziz and Victor Low. "It's All Here Somewhere" also features Darren Ng (SONICBRAT) and Andy Chia (SA) on selected tracks.

The Analog Room OutIn 003 with Obedient Wives Club / Jasmine Sokko / Cherie Ko | 28 Oct 2017

The Analog Room OutIn 003 with Obedient Wives Club / Jasmine Sokko / Cherie Ko | 28 Oct 2017

To celebrate the release of their new EP, Cinematica, The Analog Room OutIn series return with local fuzzy girl-pop band Obedient Wives Club (OWC) after a four year-long hiatus. Joining them on the bill will be 2 rare DJ sets from electronic pop artist Jasmine Sokko and OWC's very own Cherie Ko. There will be cocktails by Monkey Shoulder throughout the revelry, while stock lasts! Come by for great live music, drinks, excellent vinyl offerings and great company!

About Obedient Wives Club:
Capturing the quintessential Spectorgaze-esque sounds of classic girl-group pop with bittersweet tales of love and loss, Obedient Wives Club is a Singapore-based fuzz pop quintet comprising YinQi Lee (vocals), Keith Tan (guitar), Cherie Ko (guitars, vocals), Sulaiman Supian (bass) and Lennat Mak (drums).

Formed in late 2011, the band have released two acclaimed EPs: the self-titled debut in 2011 - rated one of SEA INDIE’s top ten Southeast Asia Best Indie-pop Releases in 2010/11 - and Murder Kill Baby in 2013, which Rough Trade describes as "Obedient Wives Club have built a massive cathedral of emotion, a group sound that is brooding, washed with shoegaze tones but also pulsing with a beating heart of melancholic female vocals."

Obedient Wives Club’s varied musical tastes run a wide gamut and each member of the group contributes their individual influences to the songs. This collaborative effort culminates in Cinematica, a five-track third EP that will be released on July 14, 2017. Supported by National Arts Council, Cinematica was recorded over 2016 and boasts legendary Singaporean musician Patrick Chng (Oddfellows, TypeWriter), American producer Brad Wood (Smashing Pumpkins, Liz Phair), American mastering engineer Hans DeKline (Pixies, Snoop Dogg), and their own Keith Tan among the production credits. 

Melancholia runs in the blood of Cinematica, depicted in various forms across its three anchor singles from a missed love connection in “Baby Bye Bye,” to two clandestine lovers in “Moonlight Rendezvous,” and selfish abandonment in “Factory Girl.” Obedient Wives Club also sheds its fuzz in Cinematica, opting instead to bring in new instrumentation such as strings and horns, showcasing a grown-up Obedient Wives Club with a more confident sound.
