Post Liverpool Music Week, there will be no let-up for the city’s gig-going fraternity as Harvest Sun bring acclaimed New York rockers Forest Fire to The Shipping Forecast on November 28th.

The NYC indie rockers surfaced in February 2007, releasing the Psychic Love Star EP, a hissy five-song batch (limited to 200 copies), followed by acclaimed debut LP Survival.

Rough Trade Shops declared Forest Fire’s debut LP one of the top ten records of the year, calling the album ‘an absolute revelation.’

Check out an acoustic rendition of single Fortune Teller from the LP below.

Live, the band cover the ground between introspective folk, structured rock songs in the classic sense and noise.

The band’s second album, Staring At The X was released last month and will be followed by a reissue of Survival in 2012.

Forest Fire has spent much of the time between releases touring, crossing Europe three times last year, headlining their own shows plus playing festival dates, including the UK’s End Of The Road and France’s Route Du Rock.

On the supporting cast, Mancunians Driver Drive Faster released their debut single They May Talk through Lex Records in February last year.

Remixes of the song by The Young Knives and Manchester’s May68 hit a chord with BBC Radio 1, where the song notched up numerous plays.

They have received strong support from BBC radio 6 DJs Marc Riley and Steve Lamacq, as well as Radio 2’s Radcliffe & Maconie show.

The band have shared stages with Erland and The Carnival, The Drums and ex-Pavement’s Marble Valley.

Experimental psych rockers Tacoma, based in Liverpool launched their debut EP in The Shipping Forecast at the beginning of the year and have become firm fixtures on the city’s gig circuit.

Completing the bill Liverpool based band Greenwich Tea Party recently turned in an acclaimed performance supporting Harvest Sun faves Other Lives down in London.
