Live Gig Video: Johnny Flynn and the Sussex Wit and special guest perform ‘The Water’ at Live at the Lewes Stopover 2013

By on Thursday, 1st August 2013 at 4:00 pm

Johnny Flynn and the Sussex Wit appeared in mid-July at the Live at the Lewes Stopover 2013, sponsored by Gentlemen of the Road, Mumford and Sons‘ record label. So it’s not a huge stretch of the imagination that Marcus Mumford made a surprise appearance, ukulele in hand, when Flynn’s band were ready to play their song ‘The Water’ in the lovely town of Lewes. This rendition’s beautiful, it gave me chills. Watch the performance below.

Flynn and band go on tour in the UK and Ireland in October.



Live Gig Video: Kodaline play ‘Way Back When’ and ‘High Hopes’ at Dublin’s Old Tannery

By on Tuesday, 30th July 2013 at 4:00 pm

Irish band Kodaline were recently filmed by Nokia Lumia Live earlier this month, performing at Dublin’s Old Tannery in front of a group of excited fans. In this video, the four-piece perform ‘Way Back When’ and ‘High Hopes’ off their debut album released in June, ‘In a Perfect World’. (You can read my review of the album here.) Watch all the beauty enfold below.

The band has a string of English live dates in November.


Live Gig Video: Itch performs new single ‘Best Shot’ on the Lightship 95 moored in London

By on Monday, 29th July 2013 at 4:00 pm

Itch has released this unique performance video filmed in London of ‘Best Shot’, his new single out today. If you’ve ever wondered what it was like to perform on a moored ship, this is your big chance: in this video, the UK MC is performing with a full band on the Lightship 95, a boat permanently moored in East London’s Trinity Buoy Wharf. Watch it below.



Live Gig Videos: Alessi’s Ark, The Crookes and Lianne La Havas perform acoustic sessions for Tramlines 2013

By on Friday, 26th July 2013 at 4:00 pm

In what’s like a bunker – an acoustically sound bunker – at this year’s Tramlines, the festival hid a couple acts away to record some really lovely acoustic sessions for all of us to savour.

First, Alessi’s Ark, aka London singer/songwriter Alessi Laurent-Marke, performs a stripped back version of ‘The Rain’ from her album released this year on Bella Union, ‘The Still Life’.


Next, we’ve got local boys the Crookes performing ‘American Girls’, one of the singles off their 2012 Fierce Panda album ‘Hold Fast’. The choice of song seems rather appropriate given this Tweet from them yesterday! (Mmm yes indeed. The American half of our writership is very excited about this touring prospect.)


Finally, we have Lianne La Havas (pictured at top performing at Alexandra Palace in 2012) all by her lonesome with her acoustic guitar, playing ‘Tease Me’.



Interviews: Dutch Uncles and Public Service Broadcasting chat at Tramlines 2013

By on Friday, 26th July 2013 at 11:00 am

I like a festival that actively seeks to film interviews, performances and sessions with the wealth of talent they have appearing at their event. Earlier this week we posted bands’ thoughts on this year’s Tramlines in Sheffield, as well as some live stage performances. This morning we have some exclusive chats filmed by the festival.

First on tap are Dutch Uncles‘ Duncan Wallis and Andy Proudfoot chatting about their year so far – including their support slot with American rock band behemoth Paramore – and what it’s like for the Marple band to come to play in Sheffield.

Following that, we have Wilgoose and Wrigglesworth of Public Service Broadcasting being interviewed by the Guardian’s New Band Up North columnist Emily Brinnand, ahead of their appearance at the Harley.


Live Gig Videos: The Heartbreaks, the Jim Jones Revue and Wet Nuns perform at Tramlines 2013

By on Thursday, 25th July 2013 at 4:00 pm

This afternoon we’ve got for you some really spectacular live performances from this year’s Tramlines festival in Sheffield. First up, the Heartbreaks from Morecambe are at the Harley performing ‘Liar My Dear’, which frontman Matthew Whitehouse describes as being “about being a very, very naughty boy in a seaside town”. Ooher…


Next, we have the growly, garage rock stylings of the Jim Jones Revue (pictured at top) on the Main Stage at Devonshire Green, playing ‘Righteous Wrong’ from their blistering 2010 album ‘Burning Your House Down’.


Finally, Wet Nuns bring their punishing guitars and beats in this video taken at their Academy show.
