Sheffield over the past year has lost out on four tradesmen but gained yet another new name to add to their increasing list of bands that are discharging out of the city and becoming national, if not global names.

CD Review: Joan As Police Woman - Flushed Chest
There are a few high-ranking names you could try if asked who Joan Wasser makes you think of, but the piano says Nina Simone, even though 'Flushed Chest' uses several other instruments in a finished product that can still leave you feeling as if you've witnessed voice and piano in secluded emotional contact. | 311 hits

CD Review: Detwiije - Would You Rather Be Followed By Forty Ducks for the Rest of Your Life
God bless post rock bands and their inability to come up with short, precise titles. In the world of post rock, reviewers tend to miss the point, and label a band "the new" someone or other, or even worse than that, they simply grab a handful of random bands in the genre and apply their names to newer bands in order to give them a starting point as to what they're trying to do. | 918 hits
CD Review: Joan As Police Woman - Christobel
New Yorker Joan Wasser is the vocal sensation at the heart of Joan As Police Woman. Although with a mind for equal opportunities other band members are mentioned in the biography, it is her voice you will inevitably come back to. | 298 hits
CD Review: Various Artists - Classic Rock Presents: New Wave Of British Heavy Metal
Galloping into view with more nostalgia than a thousand reminiscing grandparents, 'Classic Rock Presents: New Wave Of British Heavy Metal' does exactly what it says on the tin, and wastes no time in bringing things right back to the 70s, tearing straight into Diamond Head's 'Am I Evil?', a stone cold classic by anyone's standards, which has seen something of a deserved revival in recent times thanks to The Big Four's performance of it when they play together, such as when they dazzled the Sonisphere crowd with it this summer. | 726 hits

CD Review: Kurran and the Wolfnotes - Your Four Limbs
If we were in the business of judging bands by their names- I'd probably be talking about a sensitive, animal jumper wearing, 'beardy band' who may unintentionally look like a retroactive Flight of the Conchords parody band. | 520 hits

First hearing the yearning and inebriated message of 'Bar On A' in Preston's 'The Mad Ferret', before its recorded release on Greg Holden's latest album; I knew that such of Holden's Little-Lancashire-To-Big-Apple musical anecdotes would captivate current fans, and create new ones. | 968 hits
Live Review: Bayou Gumbo
I like to think of myself as a man of the world, a raconteur, a philanthropist and all those other words I remember my father using when I was a lad to describe himself to some hapless stranger over a pint (he never ever knew what they meant!) However, even men of the world can be caught off guard every now and then. | 348 hits

CD Review: Camera Obscura - Lloyd I'm Ready to Be Heartbroken
I wobbled over buying this after a little digging around the subject revealed niggling Belle and Sebastian comparisons, but luckily it turns out to be the near-perfect three minutes and fifty one seconds of swooning, Spector-ish pop bliss my ears had initially suspected. | 512 hits
CD Review: The Steers - Julia
Usually, doing a bit of on-line research on a band as you sit listening to their latest single will reveal a little juicy fact or will at least give you the bit of inspiration needed to start writing - even if you just find out the band members' names and where they're from. | 413 hits

CD Review: Hot Club De Paris - Live at Dead Lake
A seductive opening near minute to 'Call Me Mr Demolition Ball' kicks the album off. It's anything but demolition-like, but after this, the pace changes and the idea of a wrecking ball becomes more apparent. | 380 hits
CD Review: The Echo - Tin Foil Dreams
With a name as unimaginative and generic as The Echo it is perhaps no surprise that the accompanying soundtrack offers very little in the way of innovation. | 753 hits

CD Review: Chris Liebing - 10 Years Clr
Starts with a thud, that strengthens, the syncopated cymbal starts and you know you're listening to techno. | 255 hits
CD Review: Buck 65 - Square
An ex-baseball player, originally from Canada, now based in Paris and with 'Square', his first release for a major, maybe the pioneer of 'A.O.H' (that's 'adult orientated hip hop(c)' to you and me). | 384 hits
CD Review: 3milehigh - Cardboard World
If Cardboard World carried the sub-title "Made for an American market only" then so many stereotypes on one record could be forgiven. | 824 hits
CD Review: Catherine MacLellan - Church Bell Blues
Apparently there has been a recent influx of female singer-songwriters from Canada. Names like Kathleen Edwards and Julie Doiron don't exactly ring any bells for me, but joining them on that accomplished list is Catherine MacLellan, and her name could perhaps ring a (Church) Bell or two. | 403 hits

CD Review: Various Artists - Paul Marshall / Tascam Tapes - split single
A couple of names lately added to the ranks of Leeds acoustic singer-songwriterdom. The whole thing - quite deliberately a disc of two halves - begins with Paul Marshall's songs following a bass-and-snare drumbeat that gives way to some pleasing guitar-picking in a slightly hasty style for 'Oh Napoleon'. | 404 hits
CD Review: Andyshades & Us - Untitled
Tell me I'm not the right audience for Andy Shades and you're probably onto something, but I've seen him in concert and know he's a decent musician who works with others of the same ilk, some of whom are the US playing here. | 319 hits

Dan International, Pete, Roj, Simo and T. Any ideas? Yes. You got it. They are The High Chairs. Well done. | 383 hits
CD Review: Last Night's TV - Daylight Between The Blades
After an initial listen to this CD I'm struggling to make myself listen to it again. I kind of want to prove myself wrong that it wasn't as bad as I thought first time round, but it does take me a while before I force myself to slide it in the CD tray again. | 280 hits
CD Review: Floozy - Untitled
Five nice blokes, four affable tracks. Some springy little guitar riffs and a load of enthusiasm. A goofy, friendly CD with a big SG type guitar in moody black and white on the sleeve. | 433 hits

After a year and a half of being a young indie boy band from Leeds, I finally got the chance to have a chat with the boys from The Concetines.

The band has recently begun to grow more and more successful grabbing an opportunity to share their wonderful music with the audience at Live at Leeds 2013 this summer. | 458 hits
Live Review: Selflove
Milo was hosting Night Vision, an interesting mix of music and poetry. Playing first, a three-piece who didn't give their name gave a short mix of covers including and an innovative re-working of Frou Frou's "Let Go" and a somewhat less innovative version of Ryan Adams' "Oh My Sweet Carolina" (maybe they should've done the 'classic' "This Is It"), as well as traditional Irish folk songs. | 523 hits

CD Review: Chickenhawk - Chickenhawk
Chickenhawk's debut long-player is an ambitious and heroic montage of many different types of metal. Crunching riffs swing themselves between battering rhythms and off-kilter tempo changes, and are often interspersed with throat-destroying vocal theatrics and glitches of weird electronica. | 423 hits

CD Review: Neil McSweeney - A Rope to Hang
From buskers sat on arse-numbing pavements to famous names gently rocking crowds to the land of nod in cavernous venues, performers who opt for the minimal approach of a simple acoustic guitar and tender vocal are ten-a-penny. | 329 hits
CD Review: Arctic Monkeys - When The Sun Goes Down
Despite Arctic Monkeys' front man Alex Turner's antipathy for media comparisons to their Yorkshire (elder) cousins Kaiser Chiefs -and who can blame him, for they clearly do not sound alike- we should not forget the similarities in their meteoric rise in popularity and whilst they are still relative newcomers in age terms, both have achieved so, so much in just over 12 months; household names is termed not unwisely. | 1,419 hits

Live Review: Hot Snakes + The Computers + That Fucking Tank

For a band signed to Kitsune I was surprised to see just how many guitars were being lined up at side stage; most of my experience with Two Door Cinema Club is based on floods of remixes, and their album ploughs with a kind of mechanical relentlessness, which is possibly a ridiculous way of saying they might have used electronic drum sounds. | 675 hits

Twin Atlantic seem to have gone rather low profile recently.

Interview: The Cast of Cheers
Last Wednesday, 29th February I was lucky enough to catch up with Cast of Cheers, four very charming and down to earth Irish lads. Greeted by smiles and handshakes the band introduced themselves before settling down in the upstairs backstage at the Cockpit.
