WIN / Tix to Original Penguin Plugged In session July 2014 in London starring We Are Scientists and Twin Atlantic

 
By on Monday, 30th June 2014 at 11:00 am
 

Tomorrow is the 1st of July. Another month, another great gig hosted by fashion house Original Penguin at the famed London venue the Hospital Club. Just like the one starring Nick Mulvey and THUMPERS a few short weeks back, this month’s show next Tuesday (the 8th of July) promises to be another great night of music. And we’ve blagged a pair of tickets to the intimate gig to give away to a lucky TGTF reader!

A band that really needs no introduction, Brooklyn-based We Are Scientists will be headlining the proceedings Tuesday night in London. It’s not enough that they write kick-arse songs that stay in your head forever and ever like ‘The Great Escape’, ‘After Hours’ and Rules Don’t Stop’. They’re also extremely funny guys and should you have the luck to win this pair of tickets, you’re in for a rib-tickling night with jokes a-plenty interspersed between the band’s cheeky brand of American rock.

Before We Are Scientists will be Glaswegian band Twin Atlantic, who have been wowing crowds all over the UK for as long as I’ve been involved with TGTF and we started writing about them in 2009 (probably longer). I can only say that their epic rock sound should sound amazing in the cramped confines of the Hospital Club.

Normally, the only way into this special show is if you sign up here at Original Penguin to put your name in for the company’s lucky draw. But as I mentioned before, we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away and we want to give them to a deserving TGTF reader. Keen on winning? Ready, set, go!

First, please fill out your full name and your email address in the form below. Then to make sure you really want to go (and also to confirm you’re not a robot!), you’ll need to correctly answer this question: What band is supporting We Are Scientists on their headline shows in July? (Hint: Dig around We Are Scientists’ official Web site for the answer.) Get your entries in by noon British time on Wednesday the 2nd of July. We’ll choose a winner from all the correct entries received and contact him/her by email. Good luck! Please note: this contest is open to UK residents only who can get themselves to London for the show, and the winner and guest must be 18+ or you will be turned away at the door (and we don’t want anyone to be disappointed). All duplicate entries will be discarded.

This contest is now closed. The winner will be contacted by email.

 

MP3 of the Day #839: Grimes

 
By on Monday, 30th June 2014 at 10:00 am
 

Canadian electronic goddess Grimes has released a new song featuring LA electro artist Blood Diamonds. Called simply ‘Go’, it actually sounds less experimental and out there and therefore more accessible than songs on her breakout album on 4AD, ‘Visions’. Listen to and grab the song for your very own from the Soundcloud widget below.

Wherever you will be hanging your hat this weekend, whether you’re joining the sheep at Worthy Farm or you’ve got your feet up in front of the telly, us here at TGTF will have you covered when it comes to Glastonbury 2014. The dedicated people they are, the folks at the BBC will be working all hours during the festival and feeding us live coverage as it becomes available. What does this mean for you?

The kind of artist you immediately think of who would go perfectly in an environment like the BBC Music Tent at Glastonbury 2014 would be Nick Mulvey, am I right? Here is Mulvey on Saturday with nothing but his voice and guitar, after his appearance opening the Pyramid Stage at Worthy Farm on Friday. Once you’re through with that, I recommend you get some shut eye, because that is exactly what we’re doing. See you in the morning!

The BBC at Glastonbury 2014 (Sunday): White Lies playing ‘Farewell to the Fairground’ at the Other Stage

The dedicated people they are, the folks at the BBC will be working all hours during the festival and feeding us live coverage as it becomes available. What does this mean for you? We’ll be passing along all the best bits to you, our faithful readers.

I have a soft spot in my heart for London’s White Lies: they were one of the bands that played the first show I ever covered as a music writer; they were part of a NME-sponsored tour here in America. ‘Farewell to the Fairground’ off their debut (and #1) album was one of the songs that was met with incredible cheers when it was played at their first show ever in DC. They’re now international stars but it’s great to see them play an old classic like this to the delight of their fans at an event as big as Glasto. Watch them perform it at the Other Stage Sunday at Glastonbury 2014 below.

The BBC at Glastonbury 2014 (Sunday): Glass Animals performing at the BBC Introducing Stage

Wherever you will be hanging your hat this weekend, whether you’re joining the sheep at Worthy Farm or you’ve got your feet up in front of the telly, us here at TGTF will have you covered when it comes to Glastonbury 2014. The dedicated people they are, the folks at the BBC will be working all hours during the festival and feeding us live coverage as it becomes available. What does this mean for you? We’ll be passing along all the best bits to you, our faithful readers.

Oxford band Glass Animals released their debut album ‘Zaba’ earlier this month, the first LP under producer Paul Epworth’s new Wolftone label. BBC Introducing filmed not one but two videos of the band performing at their stage Sunday afternoon at Glastonbury 2014 and we’ve got them here for your delectation. First is one of the groovier cuts from the album, ‘Hazey’. But if you’re familiar at all with ‘Zaba’, you’ll be surprised with this live treatment, as it’s quite different.

Regular TGTF readers will recall our posting back in April of Glass Animals’ superb cover of Kanye West’s ‘Love Lockdown’ after they’d laid it down in Oz superbly for national radio station there triple j. Just as it had done to presenters Matt and Alex down under, us here at TGTF were basically rendered speechless by it. The cover made a welcome appearance at Glasto to close out the band’s set, delighting the BBC Introducing punters. (I particularly enjoyed the grooving of the folks down the front, as well as the dancing of the chap in the back with the hat, who was definitely getting into it!) One has to wonder what Mr. West has to say about the cover, considering the original triple j video now has over 200,000 views (holy cow).
