Video of the Moment (and more!) #1292: To Kill a King

By on Wednesday, 14th August 2013 at 6:00 pm

We’re very pleased to hear that To Kill a King have just signed a deal with Xtra Mile Recordings (the fine folks that bring you releases from Frank Turner and Future of the Left). They’ll be releasing a special deluxe edition of ‘Cannibals with Cutlery’ on Xtra Mile on the 7th of October with four extra tracks not on the original release; their first single with Xtra Mile, ‘Rays’, will also be available on digital download on the same day. Here is the promo for the first song they ever wrote, ‘Bones’. The promo is a nice smattering of clips from their life on the road. Watch it below. One better, the band want to give you the song absolutely free; you can get it from the Soundcloud widget, also embedded below.

To Kill a King will also be touring the UK in October and November; the dates are listed under the video and mp3 embeds.

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.
