Moin (UK) + Rivet

RIYL: Valentina Magaletti, AD 93, Blackest Ever Black, post-punk, Raime, Fugazi, Editions Mego, Industrial, Coil, post-techno, Sonic Youth, Pavement.

Moin are a trio based in London, comprised of Tom Halstead and Joe Andrews of the band Raime (Blackest Ever Black, RR) and percussionist Valentina Magaletti, who operates over a great range of projects such as Vanishing Twin, Tomaga and Lafawandah.

The three have been working together intermittently for over 10 years with Magaletti contributing drums to both of Raime’s albums (Quarter Turns Over A Living Line in 2012 and Tooth in 2016) and a debut Moin EP in 2013. Magaletti also joined Raime’s live show for the Tooth album, which toured extensively.

The band navigates a revolving set of influences from obvious touch points such as alt rock, post-punk, art-rock, and doom metal to more abstract ideas found in improv and found sound recording. In addition to these more closely related areas, shades of electronic music are still present providing a constant dialogue between the two practices. The sound is direct but subtly re-assembled.

Support: Rivet
Rivet’s debut album On Feather and Wire – released 20 years into his career at the end of 2020 on the revered Editions Mego label – surprised and delighted with its punk spirit, industrial pulse, sensual atmospherics, and body music flavor, gave us a better sense of what the Malmö favorite is capable of. Hinted at by his work as the body music enthusiast behind Kess Kill record label and the years honing his production skills, first as Grovskopa and then as Rivet, his current sound has a sophisticated slink and a surprisingly accessible twist of pop, while still recognizable in its dance music lineage.

Winter 2023 saw Rivet’s second album ‘L+P-2′ dropped on Midnight Shift Records, with RA calling it, “A touching and occasionally searing portrait of grief through the lens of post-punk techno.” It came with accompanying remixes by artists Hodge, Nik Void, Hüma Utku as well as other friends and affiliates.
In 2024, the SHAPE+/INTONAL commissioned piece “Melodori”, made in collaboration with Luis Pestana and Gregory Vartian-Foss was announced. Additionally a third album is due in March 2025.
