Live Review: Daze Edge + Ballyhoo/Eventide + The Voices + Epic Derek
Acoustic duo Epic Derek (aka Stephen Thwaites and Jim Bird) open tonight's 360 Club and despite the questionable name they deliver an impressive set dominated by sublime vocal harmonies that fall somewhere between RX Bandits and the Beach Boys.

Live Review: Honeycomb Love + 12:27 + Daze Edge + Damn Dirty Apes
The 360 Club (located upstairs at The Library pub) is a venue full of benefits. The sound is excellent and although the intimate club is by no means the largest setting in Leeds, (you're never more than 10ft away from the bar - another bonus!); the charming location is deceptively wide, creating ample space for upwards of 250 people.

Interview: Shy Child
Shy Child's rider consisted of beer, salsa and loads of meat. Proscuitto specifically, I think. I remember congratulating them on this selection of goods, although felt slightly on edge about the meat being left out in the heat for too long. After such small talk about meat, British supermarkets and why LCD Soundsystem are cool, I decided it was around about time start asking some proper questions, with the odd Elton John reference thrown in for luck...

CD Review: Is Tropical - South Pacific
The latest single from Is Tropical serves up alt-pop hooks, smothered in a heady, lo-fi fug. 'South Pacific' is vague and enjoyable and, although it runs the risk of playing it too safe, it's saved from melting into a pleasant, featureless blur, thanks to some crisp, glittering synths.

CD Review: Arch Enemy - Khaos Legions
Arch Enemy have really raised their game on this release. Following some 4 years on from the release of 'Rise of the Tyrant', there was undoubtedly much pressure on the band to deliver the goods; it is, therefore, a huge relief to find out that Arch Enemy haven't toned down their approach, but instead have released an album which not only packs more punch than a heavyweight boxer, but retains the unmistakable sound that Arch Enemy have been perfecting for a decade and a half.

The disparate range of influences that powered 'The Rise Of The Tiger Shadow' are all still present and accounted for, but 'Stripe 1' has a more prominent electro edge, most notably in 'See You Next Tuesday' and 'Up & Down.'

CD Review: Shy Child - Liquid Love
The Synthpop/Electronic duo Shy Child, who released their first album back in 2002, have released their fourth album 'Liquid Love.' It's an album full of their usual catchy pop tunes, but seems to have a little more maturity than some of their earlier work, such as 'Drop the Phone.' 'Disconnected' has a memorable tune and is reminiscent of MGMT's music, with falsetto voices and the repetitiveness of the chorus, "I'm disconnected from the source that won't take it out, out / travels backwards in your mouth / let me get it out, out." There is a discomfort in listening to the chorus and perhaps this reflects the discomfort of being disconnected, but nonetheless it should be listened to in moderation.

CD Review: Freeland - Cope
Is DJ/Producer now just the male equivalent of Actress/Model/Whatever? Adam Freeland, currently a fairly small fish in the Chemical Bros/Calvin Harris pond hopes to move to warmer techno-tepid waters with his second solo LP 'Cope.' He's certainly roped in enough interesting guests to give himself an edge.

CD Review: Kinn - Untitled
The main problem with the three songs that make up this EP, is that frontman Nikki's soulful voice, smooth vocal rhythms and naff pop-music lyrics ("right now you want me / right now you need me" etc.) are a bad fit for the steady, rock 'n roll chug of the music.

A six-track mini LP by a Harrogate based band and a very pleasant surprise.

Sound Of Guns continue to carve a niche for themselves as pedallers of earnest, stadium-rock anthems with added personality, with their latest single, 'Architects.' 'Architects' is a towering roar of impassioned, mainstream-friendly rock where everything is pushed to extremes: the vocals are bigger, the guitars are louder and the drums go off like heavy artillery.

Live Review: Whirlwind Heat + The Detonators
Despite an interesting stage get up (bandit style scarves over their faces and shirts with military targets on them) the Detonators take their sound and pretty much every move they make straight out of 1979, and with such cutting edge opening lines as 'You middle-class wankers' they obviously mean business.
