Live Gig Video: Disclosure and Kwabs perform ‘Willing & Able’ at Wild Life

 
By on Wednesday, 26th August 2015 at 4:00 pm
 

To say I’m excited about Disclosure‘s second album ‘Caracal’, the follow-up to the 2013 Mercury Prize-nominated ‘Settle’, is an understatement. They previously revealed ‘Holding On’ featuring Gregory Porter, as well as some bits to ‘Omen’ starring the vocal talents of one Grammy-winning Sam Smith. Here’s yet another tasty morsel that was served up to some lucky fans live but is now available for all to enjoy.

Back in June, the Lawrence brothers and their fellow 2013 Mercury Prize nominees Rudimental took the plunge with a new music festival, Wild Life, which from all accounts went down a storm. A surprise appearance by r&b singer Kwabs paved the way fir this performance of ‘Willing & Able’, also set to appear on ‘Caracal’. Have a watch of its soulful goodness all unfolding below.

‘Caracal’ will drop the 25th of September on PMR and Island. For past coverage of Disclosure on TGTF, go here my friend.

Live Gig Video: Courtney Barnett and band perform ‘Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go to the Party’ outside Camden Town tube station

 
By on Tuesday, 25th August 2015 at 4:00 pm
 

Last week, Courtney Barnett and her live band stormed the area outside Camden Town tube station in north London to do a guerrilla gig and filming. So what was it all for? To produce enough footage for the live promo for ‘Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go to the Party’, of course. As you might imagine, with Barnett being such a big indie star now, the noise and hubbub of them setting up grew a big crowd for the actual performance. Watch the raucous impromptu performance below.

‘Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go to the Party’ will be released on the 11th of September on House Anxiety / Marathon Artists. For everything Courtney Barnett on TGTF, go here.

Live Gig Video: Spector perform ‘Stay High’ in front of fans at the 100 Club and Lexington in London

Spector have announced they’ll be releasing a new single the same day their new album comes out. ‘Stay High’ As described by the band’s frontman Fred MacPherson, ‘Stay High’ “is about keeping yourself distracted while everything around you goes to shit…When all that’s left of your relationship are dates booked on Groupon and your sense of adventure’s dictated by the offers on lastminute.com it’s hard not to want to dislodge yourself from reality permanently.” After witnessing it first-hand for myself and seeing some friends going through a particularly rough patch lately, I can certainly relate.

The promo they’ve filmed for it is culled footage from the band’s shows in London in March at the Lexington and at the 100 Club in April, and the claustrophobic manner in which the footage was filmed makes it feel like you’re right there in the thick of it. You know, when those overly excited fans accidentally push you while they’re dancing, or that annoying git waves his arm in front of your face, obscuring your view for half the show in his overzealousness to connect with the band. Oh yes, live gigs, gotta love them.

‘Moth Boys’, their new album, will be released on Fiction Records on the 21st of August, alongside the ‘Stay High’ single. Catch Spector live on their previously announced October 2015 UK tour, and this month during their series of in-stores and signings (appearances listed below the video).

Live Gig Video: Gaz Coombes shares self-directed live and tour video for reworked ‘Matador (Da Capo)’ ahead of new EP

 
By on Wednesday, 29th July 2015 at 4:00 pm
 

It seems to be the month for reworkings. Following on from Matthew E. White‘s redone ‘Visions’ that Carrie wrote about on Monday, today we have Gaz Coombes having a go of it.

He’s reworked and extended the title track from him album released earlier this year and called the effort ‘Matador (Da Capo)’. It features on the new ‘Matador (Da Capo)’ EP, which will be released on the 18th of September on Hot Fruit Recordings / Caroline International. Just for you collectors, the limited edition EP will be numbered and be on coloured 12″ heavyweight vinyl. The reworking will be accompanied by a demo of the track, a new instrumental called ‘4 Track Loop’ and two live recordings of ‘Buffalo’ and ‘To the Wire’ (both from the album ‘Matador’) at Coombes’ recent show at Brighton Old Market.

Ahead of the EP’s release, you can settle in and watch Coombes performing the reworked ‘Matador (Da Capo)’ in the below live and tour video that he himself directed. Enjoy.

Live Gig Video: Brandon Flowers performs ‘I Can Change’ at London Brixton Academy

 
By on Monday, 27th July 2015 at 4:00 pm
 

Back in May, Brandon Flowers played two back-to-back nights at London Brixton Academy. Lucky for us and anyone out there who weren’t able to be at either gig, he has recorded this live performance of ‘I Can Change’. The soulful, r&b-tinged song – sampling Bronski Beat’s ‘Smalltown Boy’ and guesting Neil Tennant of Pet Shop Boys, no less – floats through the rafters as punters file into the venue from the queue outside and continues on as Flowers take the stage. Watch the drama unfold below.

‘The Desired Effect’, Brandon Flowers’ second solo album following the release of ‘Flamingo’ in 2010, is out now.
