It's not all about music anymore...



Lucius – Nothing Ordinary

A gig I am most disappointed to be missing – Lucius at London’s The Lexington tomorrow night. Their debut album, Wildewoman, is out now on Play It Again Sam and their music oscillates between soft acoustic guitar-based harmonies and wild, rhythmically… Continue Reading →

Hannah Cohen – The Crying Game

“Hannah Cohen is an American singer-songwriter”, says Google. Factual, yes, but doesn’t even come close to doing her justice. The first words that come to mind on hearing her voice are, for me, delicate, vulnerable, sincere, tentative – as though she’s fearful of even… Continue Reading →

Chelsea Wolfe – The Way We Used To

Confession time – I discovered Chelsea Wolfe through Ricall. She’s one of their Ones to Watch for 2013 and actually my favourite of the lot. Musically, she reminds me of one of my favourite artists and most memorable live artists… Continue Reading →

Julian Casablancas – I’ll Try Anything Once

I wasn’t really expecting anything from this film. I know Sofia Coppola directed The Virgin Suicides (incredible film) and Lost In Translation (Oscar-winner I’m yet to see)…but I remember her from The Godfather Part III – and then as an… Continue Reading →

Wildbirds & Peacedrums – Wild is the Wind

I didn’t write about this gig the day after I went because I couldn’t find this song, and it’s the song I wanted to write about. I remembered it today… and managed to find it on soundcloud: Wildbirds & Peacedrums… Continue Reading →

Lucy Rose

Last year was as much a good year for support-act discovery as it was for fantastic live music in general. Alessi’s Ark, The Joy Formidable, Sam Amidon – all unexpected, all intentially re-visited live. First seen at The Lexington supporting… Continue Reading →
