CD Review: The Cut - Underneath the Skin
There is a marked progression between this record and the last supreme effort, 'Walking Lonely Streets': not only does the sound quality seem to fare far better, but it is in the musical arrangements and lyrics that the band truly prove their longevity.

Live Review: Black Lips + Mika Miko + Times New Viking + Gringo Star
Billed as an 8.15pm start, it was to be a night of fresh alternative music from across the Atlantic at TJ's Woodhouse Club near Hyde Park.

CD Review: SomaHigh - Lo Fat
With a late 90's influence, SomaHigh have something that is interesting and addictive. Why there is a need to show heavy influences of the great Nirvana, I'm not sure though.

Live Review: Kate Rusby
Go to a folk gig... what is that about? Well, I've been into Kate Rusby's music since I got her excellent album "10" as a present from a discerning music lover.

Live Review: Last Letter
Having frequented Stinky's Peep House a couple of occasions before for a number of house/drum and bass nights, I must admit the venue did not register as the most obvious place where you would expect to find a rock gig on a Thursday night.

Live Review: Steer
Received wisdom has it that Steer are something of an acquired taste. On the basis of this performance it is difficult to fathom what it is that needs to be acquired to appreciate their music other than a pair of fairly basic functioning ears.

Live Review: O Fracas + Downdime + Palo Alto
At surely one of Leeds' most important live venues, the monthly Engine Room is always worth a visit. Unfortunately it would seem that due to soundproofing deficiencies, the Council have threatened the Brudenell with closure.

Live Review: Oui Bee + Joseph & David + Hannah Trigwell + Amelia Orgill + Pippa Lloyd
Starting off the night is Pippa Lloyd, who breezes onto the stage with an air of vulnerability about her.

Live Review: Beautiful Feet + Moses + Mabel Blue
I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking that as much as anything else when it comes to gigs, the 'flow' of an evening's entertainment is as important as the quality of the music in catching and holding people's attention.

Live Review: Wet Nuns + John J Presley + Drenge
The Wet Nuns autumn UK tour came crashing into Leeds like a bull hell bent on destroying the proverbial china.

Live Review: Cables Cause Fires + Not Great Men + Empire Safari
There is an atmosphere in the dank cellar beneath the Royal Park pub that owes less to the faint smell of rot and alcohol hanging in the air than it does to the pervading feeling amongst all present that this event is the beginning of something exciting: A night of music organized by the bands themselves in the heart of Hyde Park, with a sense of community and mutual respect amongst audience and musicians alike.

Some of the best emerging talent this country has to offer formed a tremendous free-gig at the Cockpit.

Live Review: Wintermute + Semperfire + Dakota
"George Harrison isn't dead" Well that's according to the pensioner who took it upon himself to stand by the speakers throughout the whole of Dakota's performance, waving his walking stick and strutting his stuff, heckling at the poor lads, putting fear into the lives of those who dared breathe let alone stand more than a couple of metres from his well-guarded stage front.

Live Review: Rosie Doonan + Claire Cameron + Nicky Phillips + Pippa Lloyd
As 37,000 followers of hope, packed in to Elland Road to see Leeds United have their dreams of a place at Wembley disappointingly defeated, the music lovers of Leeds were celebrating within a parallel universe of enjoyment, due to the latest promotion from Cool Acoustics.

Live Review: Cold War Kids + The Pink Mountaintops + Derek The Poet
A prolific indie band and a back-to-basics set from a folk-rock band interspersed with poems sung by a rather quirky young man to backing tracks on an iPod were always going to make for an extremely odd gig experience.

Live Review: Caitlin Rose
Daughter of Taylor Swift's chief songwriter Rose certainly has country pedigree in her genes, so it comes as little surprise that on the back of her much-lauded debut album she is being touted as the most exciting prospect to emerge out of Nashville in years, no small praise given the city's musical lineage.

Business as usual in The Library this Friday with 360 Club back to full capacity and this week's heat wave makes it an especially moist one.

Live Review: Cables Cause Fires + Empire Safari + Thief Taker + Tom McKenzie
Leeds is a city with a growing music scene of undeniable promise, and 360 Club, a weekly showcase of new talent held at The Library pub, is frequently one of the most diverse collections of musicians in the area, none more so than in tonight's line up.

Live Review: Rose Kemp + Joe Volk + Oli Deakin + Laura Groves
Blank generation disco is the new monthly live music night at the Love Apple, Bradford, a venue that is well worth the train journey from Leeds, or wherever you may be coming from.

Live Review: Ols Moore And The Gypsy Dogs + Tag-Team Preacher + Miranda Versus The Crok + Ryan ROCKiT
Well, the weather outside is certainly frightful. But the mood in The Library is delightful (Did I really just type that?) Anyway, it's Christmas time, it's the last 360 Club of the year, and it looks set to be a cracker (pun most definitely intended).

CD Review: sammyUSA - Untitled
OK, here's a strange one - a CD that comes with a disclaimer! Apparently it's "by no means EP quality and the songs aren't the finished article", but having enjoyed the USA live onslaught, I was keen for a listen all the same.

First up, playing to a half empty square, are The Motorettes. These Geordie guys aren't half bad really, even though they fit the mould of typical indie rockers.

Live Review: Bombay Bicycle Club
Bombay Bicycle Club have always been a difficult band to pin down. New album, So Long, See You tomorrow, spent a brief period at number one in the album charts and yet you would be hard pressed to pick any of the band's four members out of a line up, whilst their musical eclecticism - their albums run the gamut from acoustic folk to the floaty, synth pop blended with African and Eastern influences sounds of the current record - can be as confusing and distancing to their audience, as it is technically impressive.

Live Review: This Et Al + ˇForward, Russia! + Mountain Men Anonymous + O Fracas
Upon recent visits to The Vine I must admit to being impressed by the seemingly more coherent approach taken to choosing the line-ups for nights, with what appears to be more consideration given to how compatible bands are both in terms of their musical style and fanbase.

The Swedish four piece trip daintily on stage, accompanied by a hurdy gurdy soundtrack that conjures up images of accordion playing moustachioed fellows and Heidi running through lush meadows.

Live Review: Phluid + Drugdealer Cheerleader + Daywaste
A night of ROCK down the Royal Park... when isn't it these days? The Royal Park is getting a name for itself now as a more rock sort of venue, possibly due to promoter Steve Kind's insistance that all bands rock at all times.

Live Review: Low + Fortdax + Geoff Smith
Leeds Parish Church is such a perfect venue for a band like Low. As soon as the bright eyed crowd had filled up the carved choir stalls, the boxed pews, the balconies and the nave seating it was obviously going to be something special.

Live Review: Rothko + The Boats + Glissando + Pan Am Scan + Sleepingdog + Phantom Dog Beneath The Moon + Spokes
Tonight may be billed as 'Forest of Sound Vs Gizeh Records', but the musically complementary and socially affable dynamic between the two rooms, and quite literal musical-chairs of collaboration going on in the Packhorse, negate any connotations of rivalry.

Live Review: The Idol Dead + Further From The Truth + Luva Gunk
After unfortunately missing the first band of the night, Beretta Suicide, it was refreshing to arrive at the 360 Club, a breeding ground for fresh young talent that is definitely becoming the best unsigned night in Leeds, to hear positive comments buzzing around the room.

CD Review: Daniel Clark - British Summertime
Daniel Clark's British Summertime EP - aptly titled, given the warmth, breeziness, and overarching congeniality of its contents - is oddly brief: it plays for just less than twelve minutes, and the material is divided more or less evenly across three songs, each slightly under four minutes.
