CD Review: Shrag - Tights in August
People keep telling that Brighton is a hotbed of British musical talent. I can't say I'm entirely convinced. | 337 hits
Band Profile: The Original Conspiracy
The Original Conspiracy are driven by a love of music, performing and adrenalin. They deliver belting tunes drowned in distortion but with eloquent melodies and a refreshing honesty. | 419 hits
CD Review: Whiskycats - Image N All The People EP
Amazing. Amazing. Okay I'll say it again: amazing. Not of course to go on about the unsigned thing at all... | 465 hits
Live Review: The Young Knives + The Rumble Strips
How soon the times change. Only 12 months ago you would have been hard pressed to name more than 2 live music venues in Huddersfield and even then they would have been part-time. | 1,082 hits
CD Review: Chris Ayer - Don't Go Back To Sleep
One of Brooklyn's burgeoning singer-songwriter's animated 2009 album is still well-worth the light-hearted listen two years on. | 289 hits
CD Review: Esteban - Just A Girl
Inspired by PLAN UK's 'Because I'm A Girl' campaign, self-styled 'desert-funk' four-piece Esteban release 'Just A Girl.' Billed as the "alternative Christmas single," 'Just A Girl' is a politically-charged, world-music infused, easy-on-the-ears musical meander, with a genuineness that means it's nowhere near as toe-curling as most charity singles. | 387 hits
Live Review: Bodixa + Dionysus + Q-Dose
Tonight the Highwood, yet again packed to capacity saw another three bands from Leeds' increasingly fertile music scene. | 354 hits
CD Review: Alba Lua - Ballad of Joseph Merrick
Alba Lua's 'Ballad of Joseph Merrick' EP is the sort of atmospheric alt-pop where the emphasis is on meticulously crafting a mood, rather than serving up the traditional dish of vocal and musical hooks. | 1,243 hits
Live Review: Tsuba + The Perfect Strangers
Despite getting lost on the M621, I clawed our way back to Elland Road and skirted around the edge of the inner city road to Joseph Wells. | 249 hits
CD Review: French Kicks - The Trial of the Century
The first track of this decidedly melodious album opens up like a blooming flower, with all the passion of The Walkmen and the synth-pop giddiness of Pulp aligned in a wonderful, mind/body/soul-warming manner. | 449 hits
Live Review: Fenech-Soler + Paper Crows + Escort Knights
After cancelling a myriad of festival appearances and rescheduling their UK tour due to lead singer, Ben Duffy undergoing chemotherapy for testicular cancer, Fenech-Soler arrived back in Leeds on a bitterly cold evening following a tumultuous year. | 520 hits
CD Review: Palo Alto - Still EP
Now here's something you don't get very often - a band who like indie music but don't sound like The Stone Roses or Oasis. | 296 hits
Live Review: The Hair + Sixty 6 + The Boolean + Airstrip One
Tonight's showcase at Josephs Well was in aid of Link Community Development to raise money for the Leeds University Hitch hike to Morocco. | 1,002 hits
CD Review: Sam Daintree - Human Being Being Human
Thinly-spread, music-making, bikeshop-working, meat-abstaining, maths-loving human-being. This is how Sam Daintree describes himself on Twitter; I bet the ladies just throw themselves at a skinny vegetarian who talks about bikes and trigonometry, even his profile picture is one of a cat- oh dear. | 240 hits
Live Review: Titans Troubadours + The Hypes + 12:27 + Square Figures
There's a good atmosphere tonight at the 360 Club, and to open up we have a two man band Square Figures. | 849 hits
CD Review: McQueen - Break The Silence
After already being one up on the fact I had seen these girls perform all these tracks live, whilst supporting The Almighty in Sheffield, I was interested to see how well it sounded on more produced level because their set was pretty bloody good. | 878 hits
Live Review: Decibels in Bloom + Termite + New Portlands
Over the last few years, it seems Huddersfield has been awash with young indie bands, complete with converse trainers and spiky guitars, following bright eyed in the wake of a trail blazed by local contemporaries, most notably Arctic Monkeys and The Cribs. | 844 hits
Live Review: The Swindells + Sewersuckers + Petrol Bastard
As I venture upstairs I happen across a very peculiar spectacle in the form of Petrol Bastard. It's not immediately apparent, and to be perfectly honest, I'm still not 100% sure whether or not this outfit is meant to be a joke. | 618 hits
CD Review: Polaris - s/t
I wish I could start this review in the same way Polaris start this eponymous album of theirs. Because then you'd understand exactly what it was I was setting out to do. | 759 hits
Live Review: Kiki Dee
Soul-kissed by Kiki Call me old-fashioned but it's so refreshing to actually hear a singer just singing. | 536 hits
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. | 496 hits
Live Review: Catylyst + Brody + Colour of Fire + And None Of Them Knew They Were Robots + Drugdealer Cheerleader
It's nights like this that show what's great about the Leeds music scene. As I'm walking to the Well it pisses it down. | 601 hits
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). | 794 hits
CD Review: Katatonia - Night Is The New Day
Although the phrase 'symphonic, atmospheric doom-metal' may conjure up visions of ten minute long, utterly thankless, glum-faced instrumentals, the eighth full-length offering from Swedish doom-metallers Katatonia administer eleven shots of compact, melodic doom-metal that bucks the genre's trend for self-indulgence. | 473 hits
Live Review: Youthmovie Soundtrack Strategies + Threekseven + 65 Days Of Static + The Black Helicopters
Whiskas - Transmission promoter and tonight's doorman - is stressed. The doors are open, thirty punters are milling around already and The Black Helicopters are still sound checking. | 1,651 hits
Live Review: Cliquant + Asking Dan + Sarajevo
I've never really been a fan of 'Battle of the Bands'. The combination of short sets, often dodgy sound and unfair or reckless judging doesn't suggest the ingredients for a great gig. | 629 hits
Live Review: Sunny Philadelphia + Daniel Clark + Elmaroe
'The Crow Knows Music' is a relatively new 'Independent Music Company' on the Leeds scene, whose mission statement, according to its creator Daniel Clark, is to quench "the thirst of the city's thirsty thirsty music scene" and to provide "a stable platform for its array of quality unsigned acts". | 1,029 hits
Live Review: Queens of the Stone Age + Catfish and the Bottlemen + Enter Shikari + Drenge + GirlsOnDrugs
Opening the BBC Introducing stage on Saturday morning were this year's Centre Stage competition winners, GirlsOnDrugs. | 569 hits
Live Review: Jacobean Ruff + Littlebrook + Ben Roberts + Huw Eddy
In Bulgaria, that fine Southern Slavic nation in which many fantastic rituals are had, on the first day in May the people celebrate the more unusual of festivals name Irminden. | 584 hits
Live Review: Editors + Biffy Clyro + ˇForward, Russia! + The Motorettes
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. | 1,000 hits
Live Review: Little Fish + Wot Gorilla? + Our Fold + Amy's Ghost + The Gang + We're Only Afraid Of NYC + Sketches + The Mighty Stef + Stagecoach + Mr Fogg + End Of Level Baddie + Arcs & Trauma
Halifax-bred musical primates Wot Gorilla? have a sound animal name, thrive in a West Yorkshire habitat, and seem to have inherited a Minus The Bear tendency from Wintermute. | 1,441 hits
CD Review: Various Artists - NME The Album 2009
The press release that accompanies this two disco compilation gives NME the moniker of "the pioneers of all things cool" before promising us an album that "has its finger on the pulse, so you don't have to!" It couldn't possibly be any clearer that this is an album for people who see a band on the front cover of NME, and then spend the next week enthusing about the greatness of said band, regardless of whether they like them or not. | 1,408 hits
Live Review: Suicide Silence + Deez Nuts + Bleed From Within + More Than Life + TRC + Heart In Hand + Evita + Basement + Polar + Silent Screams + Crossbreaker + The Ocean Between Us
The Ocean Between Us have a tough job in opening up the 2nd day of Ghostfest, but rise to the occasion in spectacular style. | 1,254 hits
