Live Gig Video: Kodaline perform new song ‘The One’ at Ocean Way Recording in Los Angeles

Not long now! Kodaline‘s hotly anticipated second album ‘Coming Up for Air’ is out on Monday on RCA Victor. You can read my review of it ahead of its release here.

Last month we posted this video of the Dubliners performing album track ‘Ready’ acoustically at Ocean Way Recording in Los Angeles, where the album was recorded. This week, they have another video from the same session, and this one is (no pun intended, and at the risk of sounding redundant) of ‘The One’, one of the LP’s ballads that works extremely well in an acoustic setting. Watch it below.

 

(SXSW 2015 flavoured!) Live Gig Video: Skinny Lister plays new track ‘This is War’ at Tokyo Shibuya Club Quattro

Ever wondered how English bands go down in other countries other than Britain? Well, having experienced it firsthand myself at the International Forum and the Shibuya-AX, Japan is always a good shout: they just love British bands, and the crowd reaction to Skinny Lister visiting Tokyo last autumn is a great example of this. Their friend Larry Dawgiello filmed this performance at the famed Club Quattro in Shibuya last October of ‘This is War’, a new track that will figure prominently on the folk punks’ new album ‘Down on Deptford Broadway’, which will be released on the 20th of April on Xtra Mile Recordings.

If you happen to be lucky enough to be going to SXSW this year, I think it is a safe bet that the accordion will be a-flyin’ for this number when played in Austin in a few weeks. They also have a UK tour lined up for April and May, with tickets on sale now. Watch the video below.

 

(SXSW 2015 flavoured!) Live Gig Video: The Districts perform ‘Suburban Smell’ and ‘4th and Roebling’ for La Blogotheque

 
By on Thursday, 29th January 2015 at 4:00 pm
 

In this lovely Take Away show from those French masters La Blogotheque, Pennsylvania growly indies the Districts perform two cuts from their upcoming album for Fat Possum Records, ‘A Flourish and a Spoil’, which sees the light of day on the 9th of February. You’ll recognise ‘4th and Roebling’, the lead single from the upcoming LP, performed as the sun sets by a canal. ‘Suburban Smell’, performed acoustically alone by frontman Rob Grote, gets its first airing in this video as well. Watch the performances below.

Stay tuned for my review of ‘A Flourish and a Spoil’, which will post soon here on TGTF. For our past coverage on the Lititz band, go here. The Districts are scheduled to perform at this year’s SXSW.

 

Live Gig Video: Tom Williams shows off his ‘New Guitar’ in his new stripped back endeavour

 
By on Tuesday, 27th January 2015 at 4:00 pm
 

You remember Tom Williams: he helmed indie folk favourites Tom Williams and the Boat, who just released their third LP ‘Easy Fantastic’ on Moshi Moshi Records to critical fanfare last year. As a bit of a breather for himself, as well as what I can imagine is him stretching his artistic wings, Williams will be releasing a mini-album later this year, featuring acoustic tunes he wrote during down time in the workings-on of the last Boat album. The 7-track mini-album will be released on Williams’ own Wire Boat Recordings label and can be pre-ordered along with a host of exclusive offers via his PledgeMusic campaign’s Web site.

The first song to be unveiled from the new project is called ‘New Guitar’, an engaging tune that tells how the fateful purchase of a new musical instrument can play a role in the start of a new life. He’s also chosen to share with us a live video of him performing this new song, filmed where he found said guitar, at Replay Acoustics in Sevenoaks, Kent. Watch below as Williams looks completely in his element, surrounded by a bevy of Replay’s lovely acoustics.

 

Live Gig Video: Kodaline play acoustic version of ‘Ready’, off upcoming ‘Coming Up for Air’ sophomore album

 
By on Tuesday, 20th January 2015 at 4:00 pm
 

Anticipation is building for Kodaline‘s sophomore album ‘Coming Up for Air’, which will drop in the first half of February 2015. The first taster revealed from the album was single ‘Honest’, which premiered in early December; you can read my single review, as well as watch the live action lyric and official videos for it.

Now they’ve unveiled a second track, which is quite a beauty. This live version of ‘Ready’, played acoustically, was recorded and filmed at Ocean Way Recording in Los Angeles, where the boys found themselves committing the new record to tape. Some fans complained that ‘Honest’ sounded too pop; one thing that has safely made it through to the other side on this new LP is Kodaline’s timeless harmonies, which are on full show in this live video. Watch it below.

Kodaline’s second album, the follow-up to 2013’s ‘In a Perfect World’, will be released on the 9th of February on RCA Victor. We’ve written quite a bit about the band, you can check out pretty extensive archive of writings on them here.
