CD Review: Due To Debt - Stealing all the awesome
Ok, so the cover note with this CD states "Our music is intended to cross heavy rock with the emotion of blues and the aggression of metal along with melodies and feelings produced from the best songs we enjoy ourselves".

CD Review: Benjamin Zephaniah - Naked
The lesson behind this CD: poetry is cool, kids. Primarily Benjamin Zephaniah is a poet, but then he writes novels, and releases albums as well.

CD Review: Jamie Lidell - Jim
Just as the simple album title so glaringly suggests, Jim is Jamie Lidell's most conventional release yet...

CD Review: Filthy Sanchez - Untitled
If you were thinking that the worse thing about Filthy Sanchez was their name, you're wrong! Yes it is appalling and fits the "funny when you're 14 and you know what it really means" category but the real travesty here is a lyrical one.

Live Review: Mishkin
The stage is set, the crowd is ready and the atmosphere is heavy with anticipation. It's time for Saturday's headliners at the inaugural Metal Fringe to deliver.

CD Review: John Parkes - Faithlessnessless
John Parkes is a singer songwriter in the most traditional of senses. One man, his guitar and his occasional harmonica is as much as is needed on this 12 song solo break from Whole Sky Monitor.

CD Review: Various Artists - The Bristol Reggae Explosion 1978-1983
A CD that without any apparent effort gives a party and a documentary in the same 74 mins of music. It doesn't matter that the title years don't spread evenly over the 14 tracks (just the two Joshua Moses numbers from 1978 & 79 and the rest are 1980-83).

CD Review: The Loving Palms - Runaway
The casual listener could be forgiven for assuming that Runaway, the latest single released by The Loving Palms, was written and recorded on some sunny coast of Hawaii, but look a little closer at the liner notes and you'll find that this eclectic, lazily-cool tune was forged in a decidedly chillier collaboration between Yorkshire, Scotland and, thanks to sublime slide guitar playing courtesy of Christine Bougie, Canada.

CD Review: Various Artists - Across the Pennines III
This is another fine offering from the good people at AtP. Again, not every tune is perfect but it's as good a sampler as any of what's going on musically right now along the M62 corridor.

Live Review: Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. + Walter Schreifels
Walter Schreifels (ex- Quicksand and Rival Schools) is up with his acoustic guitar. A charming New Yorker, now residing in Berlin, he has many songs revolving around bicycles that mend themselves, friends ('Distressed Friends'), people he meets and things he eats.

CD Review: Black Mountain College - Bright by the Sea
Having earned the prestigious title of 'Pick of the week' on C4 Teletext, Bright Mountain College arrive with a very nicely packaged CD, some epic songs and an ambitious, bold stance on things.

CD Review: Menace Beach - Dream Out
*Click* I select the first song. The clanging riff comes in. I picture fingers plucking at the strings hypnotically, it holds for a few seconds longer than that of a usual intro.

Live Review: I Drew First Blood + Horizons + Flee The Plague + Arise The Masses
If there's a single fault to be had with tonight's gig, it's that not enough people were here to witness it.
www.leedsmusicscene.net/article/15046/ | 614 hits
CD Review: New Order - Krafty
It's a tricky one, the remix CD. It can prove to be a bit of a pain in the rear sometimes, as your fans want the one they heard on the radio, not the 'DJ Killbot 12" extended techno-dub mix', but as evidenced here, sometimes it can prove to be a fruitful exercise.

CD Review: Amiina - Kurr
Amiina (formerly Amína) are an odd band. Four Icelanders better known for their connection with Sigur Rós more than anything else, they play an instrumental music that is hard to classify.
www.leedsmusicscene.net/article/8468/ | 632 hits
CD Review: The Fever - Red Bedroom
These guys are from New York and it's safe to say they are cool cats. Lump 'em in the same bracket as The Faint if you must - essentially, "electroclash rock band".

Live Review: Passion Pit + Ellie Goulding + Little Death
Tonight the crowd have piled into Leeds Met early with the anticipation of BBC Sound of 2010's winner Ellie Goulding and highly popular Passion Pit.

CD Review: Red.Star.Line - Pure / Rewards For Informers

Live Review: Frightened Rabbit + Fran Rodgers + Yonderboy
When the two planned supports pull out last-minute, it would be very easy for disaster to strike, and this evening Yonderboy and Fran Rodgers are drafted in on very short notice to avert a possible catastrophe.

CD Review: Kanye West - 808s And Heartbreak
He dropped out of college in 2004, touched the sky in 2005 and by 2007 was living the good life, but in 2008 Kanye West is welcoming us to heartbreak with the greatest artistic gamble mainstream pop has seen in years.

CD Review: Various Artists - Urban Fusion II
Mark Wright of Our Tuli sent this great CD in to LMS. And that tells a tale, by omission. Arts Leeds of the City Council, and a whole boatload of worthy sponsors put time and cash in to make the project possible.

CD Review: Napoleon IIIrd - Hideki Yukawa
The designation of Napoleon IIIrd's 'Hideki Yukawa' release as a mini-album is a clear-cut example of understatement.

Live Review: Esclavage + Misled Vision
Misled Vision have come a long way since the last time I saw them, when they were a good band but were too inexperienced as musicians and as a band to make any real impact, but the fact that they played the Cockpit today shows how far they have come.

CD Review: i concur - Able Archer
In many ways, I Concur have been ready to release this album for quite some time. A large proportion of the songs on 'Able Archer' have been happily settled in their repertoire and have nestled together within an increasingly assured and engaging live show.

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.

Live Review: Crosscut Saw
It is unaccountable that Crosscut Saw don't seem to have a growing audience. The music room at the Grove is no barn with its licensed capacity of 80, yet going there to see them one can feel concern whether there'll be enough listeners to generate decent door money let alone atmosphere.

CD Review: Backyards - If You're Scared EP
I've always enjoyed a song or indeed an EP covered with intellectually challenging lyrics, but to find one mixed with the production skills worthy of an expensive LA studio on a debut EP is astonishing!

CD Review: Pilot To Gunner - Get Saved
A good name, a good front cover, and a kudos-worthy work ethic, and oh boy it fits in my CD player like a penis in a vagina.

CD Review: The Charlatans - Up At The Lake
The first song on this album is the title track. It rocks and stomps, demanding volume. Burgess blends his natural voice, with the falsetto style he adopted on the 'Wonderland' album.

CD Review: Exit State - Bad Days
'Bad Days,' the debut single from Lancashire's Exit State is catchy, bass-driven, mid-tempo rock. Its chorus follows the tried-and-tested formula of gang harmonies bouncing off frontman Roy Bright's hoarse-edged vocals.

CD Review: Liam Frost - Show Me How The Spectres Dance
At only 22 years old, Manchester's Liam Frost, with the accompaniment of The Slowdown Family, has received enormous praise for his brooding and thoughtful brand of acoustic-folk-indie, likened to Badly Drawn Boy, and hailed by some as Britain's answer to Bright Eyes.

Live Review: Tenbob Swerver + Runston Parva + Baggy Blue Sky
Friday night comes around again and the Duchess plays host to another trio of local bands. Well, I say local, but we really have to go as far as York for the first band on tonight, Baggy Blue Sky, and as far as Sheffield for a selection of the main band, Tenbob Swerver.

Live Review: Elbow
I have never seen Guy Garvey smile as much as he smiled tonight, this is a man more likely to be spotted looking rejected and sullen in some seedy backroom bar with a fag, a pint of ale and his trusty notebook detailing the minutiae of his every failing in the romance department.

CD Review: Elle Milano - Acres of Dead Space Cadets
Irony is a lot like ironing, and more than just linguistically. You can look pretty darn smart if you can pull off either, but it's oh-so easy to botch up.

CD Review: Billy Bragg - Mr Love & Justice
Everything I don't really want to say about Mr Love and Justice is forced out of me by knowing that the slack and meandering four and half minute first track is also the single from the album.

CD Review: Various Artists - Stereogum Presents... "Stroked: A Tribute to Is This It"
It's hard to believe that ten years have passed since the release of The Strokes' debut album 'Is This It.' A surge of great singles in the early noughties from The White Stripes, The Hives and The Coral saw indie guitar pop re-enter the public consciousness in a way not seen since the mid-nineties, but there was one group scaling the heights of popularity like no other.

CD Review: Bright Knights - This Love
In this review I mention the video for this single a lot. I recommend you watch it before reading. It is viewable here: www.drawingthislove.com This music lacks personality; there is little that can differentiate it from the deluge of other anodyne releases from guitar-operating pretentious indie bands.

CD Review: Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
There's that little bit of elitist in me that would just love to shoot this album down right from the off, to rip into it with merciless vigour and launch a tirade about how why it's because of bands like the Arctic Monkeys that music isn't like it used to be.

Live Review: Dandy Warhols
Fold your hands you walk like a rock star. The Dandy Warhols represent the triumph of substances over substance and their first two albums are testament to this with a handful of quirky, catchy and perfectly snotty pop gems along with dawdling tunes you might call "Atmospheric" or "Filler" if your in generous mood.

CD Review: Various Artists - Showcase: West Yorkshire SXSW 2007
'This town is in disarray' claims the opening track from this sampler, but clearly not in a bad way. As an album it may suffer from being a hotchpotch of radically different offerings from local record labels, but I'd be surprised if any unwitting industry mogul - into whose hand this disc may have been thrust at the recent SXSW festival, and who actually took the time to give it a spin - failed to diagnose a clean bill of health for the current Leeds scene.

Live Review: Waking the Witch + Gallo
No it's not the Onion Cellar, though you'd be excused for referencing that particular venue. However, the grass is, indeed, green(ish), unlike The New Roscoe's shiny brass which is busy reflecting the populating of here, and the faces of solitary guys, with an honest lustre, (that match-making call was a good one).

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.

Live Review: Sky Larkin + Mother Vulpine + The Acutes
The primary reason for the great and the good of Leeds society piling into the cosy Faversham this Thursday night was the chance to honour our local up-and-coming pop heroes, Sky Larkin, and the launch of their debut 7" ('One of Two' on DTTR records - available in all credible outlets now, pop pickers!) Prior to this brooding slice of indie perfection, however, we had a couple of other outfits to draw us in the direction of the Fav's intimate stage.

CD Review: Cazals - What Of Our Future
Scuzzy indie chancers and childhood playmates of Pete Doherty, Cazals caused a few excited murmurs in the East London grotty party scene a few years back, and after being spoken about in the same sentences as The Rakes and The Paddingtons, signed, quite (un)surprisingly to the 'super-cool' and 'uber-trendy' French label Kitsune.

CD Review: Senser - How To Do Battle
Rap-rock pioneers Senser have existed - in various incarnations - since the 80's, and their faux American accents, rapped vocals, vague but politically-charged ideology, and industrial-metal-meets-hip-hop backing tracks, feels seriously at odds with the current scene.
