The transformation Vessels made with their latest LP Dilate has been quite astounding. Just four years back the Leeds-based instrumental quintet was known for their monumental brand of post- and math rock. Dilate demonstrates an entirely different side to Vessels, employing fluid-like electronic soundscapes, ethereal synth layers and a warm, pulsating four-to-the-floor cadence, drawing influences from the likes of The Orb, Caribou, M83 and John Hopkis.

How Much is Enough? - Onderwater Producties

How Much is a play about consumption versus nature with substance and humour, at a special location: a rooftopgarden in the heart of the city-centre of Rotterdam.

But can they live with less?

CULTVIDEO screens a docu about the worst film ever (probably). Every few years a new worst movie pops up (Plan 9, Manos, The Room, Ulli Lommel films) generating a fanbase of cult-followers, boosting the imdb rating from almost zero to average. Thus scrolling down to the imdb bottom 250 can be as much fun as watching the top 250.
