We're almost halfway through an incredible 30-day iTunes Festival with some legendary shows still to come from the likes of Elton John, Justin Timberlake and Katy Perry.

One of London's most fabulous concert venues, The Roundhouse, is holding the biggest artists of the year between September 1st - 30th and it's only going to get better from here.

The festivities kicked off with Lady GaGa, who certainly garnered much 'Applause' with her electric set which saw her don little more than seashells in strategic places as she bellowed out a taster of her upcoming album 'Artpop'.

Jimmy Eat World - Interview


Interview with Jimmy Eat World at Download Festival 2013

Jimmy Eat World performed at this year's Download Festival before playing a single date at London's KOKO and then starting their world tour!  New album Damages (produced by Alain Johannes) has just been released to public with critical success and the band aim to continue their successful run with a UK tour in September. We spoke with guitarist Tom Linton whilst on site at Download Festival.

CM: How was your trip to the UK? Is it good to be back? 
Tom: It feels really good to be back. It's been a few years I think, so it's definitely good to be back with the new record. It just feels good to be back on tour. 

CM: We're currently at Download Festival where you're playing the Zippo Encore Stage at 18:20. Over the years, have you personally or the band collectively formed any rituals or traditions that you do before playing a gig? 
Tom: We don't do anything too crazy. We do these nerdy vocal warm-ups and do a little stretching. Sometimes there's a guitar back there and we'll just play a little bit, maybe practise a little bit. Nothing Satanic or anything like that.

A Week In Music – Kurt Vile Has His Own Day, Tom Odell Lives Up To The Hype, Candy Says Are Delighted & Kanye Still Thinks He's God


Kurt Vile Kanye West Tom Odell White Lies Muse Beware of Darkness Jimmy Eat World Michael Franti Candy Says Rolling Stones Studio Killers

Kurt VileA week in videos… It’s been a busy week for the languid voiced, melancholic entity that is Kurt Vile, and he’s topped it off by releasing a new video for KV Crimes – a song off his latest release Wakin' On A Pretty Daze. Directed by Tom Scharpling, the video riffs on the recent news that the 28th of August will officially be known as Kurt Vile Day. The actual ceremony will be marked by a free concert at City Hall from, guess who, Kurt Vile

Lack of sunny weather and increased austerity got you feeling down? Then the video for Michael Franti & Spearhead - I'm Alive (Life Sounds Like) will do a sterling job of perking you up, unless you’re averse to whistling that is. Drums and face paint at the ready; it’s festival season, and Michal Franti & Spearhead are getting ready for a summer of live shows with this seasonal video, full of fun and vitality. And drums. We mentioned drums, right?

While 20 years is a long time to develop that pop punk, emo, power pop or alternative rock sound – whatever you want to call it – it seems as though Jimmy Eat World still sound the same, not that that’s a bad thing. Their eighth studio album 'Damage' is due to hit shelves on June 11th 2013, and the video for their new single, I Will Steal You Bank conjures memories of their frenetic live shows with its nostalgic black & white style.

Jimmy Eat World - I Will Steal You Back

Jimmy Eat World, Chase This Light Album Review

Album Review

Formed in Mesa, Arizona, in 1993, Jimmy Eat World made their independent debut a year later and are now releasing their sixth album. They made a breakthrough in the UK in 2002 when their single 'The Middle' entered into the top 30 singles chart and following on from a double performance at the Carling Festival this year, they return in February for headline shows.

Long before 'emo' was a lazy tag slapped on any guitar band that teens would like, it was applied to J.E.W. for vocalist Jim Adkins' ability to marry emotional lyrics to usually very catchy tunes. Sticking to the adage 'if it isn't broke don't fix it', tracks such as 'Always Be' and 'Feeling Lucky' have infectious pop melodies and energy along with negative lyrics such as 'I'm alone in this as I've always been'. No wonder the band have so many teenage fans! Based on an acoustic guitar, 'Carry You' is a particular highlight due to featuring one of the stronger choruses on an album packed with hooks, while 'Electable (Give It Up)' is a guaranteed sing-a-long with the simplest of 'oh oh oh' chants. Adkins even comes across as positive on 'Big Casino', crashing in on a wave of optimism and declaring 'I'll accept with poise, with grace, when they draw my name from the lottery'.

Like any punk-rock band with a sense of ambition, J.E.W. head in other directions occasionally on 'Chase This Light', most obviously on the brooding 'Gotta Be Somebody's Blues'. With the vocals at barely more than a whisper, it is dominated by orchestral strings and is an avenue the band might want to try in future. The obligatory ballad, 'Dizzy', closes the record and does so in impressive fashion. A tale of lost love, it is musically sweeping with vocals that could be from a boy band (but Westlife will never sound as good). Strings swoon throughout and guitars shimmer, before being let off the leash some three minutes into the track. It may not be revolutionary, but fans are sure to be happy and there are certainly additions to the band's catalogue which are welcome.
