Live at Leeds 2013 - Live Review


Having quickly established itself as the best metropolitan music festival in the UK, Live At Leeds returned over the warm bank holiday weekend to send a spark of excitement and energy fizzing through the city's streets. As ever with LAL - and most other festivals - line-up clashes were inevitable though it did little to dampen the atmosphere of what proved to be one of the best Live at Leeds offerings yet.

The thing to remember when wandering the streets with a crumpled programme trying to figure out if you can sprint from Brudenell Social Club to The Wardrobe in under 8 minutes is that you really don't need to. The whole point of Live at Leeds is that there's always someone playing, somewhere, and it makes for a far richer experience to circle a couple of your must-sees though pretty much go with the flow of the festival.

Incidentally - after a visit to the Holy Trinity Church to catch the end of the impressive Harry George Johns - the first real port of call was the horrendously busy Cockpit venue in the city centre, where queues snaked up and down the street with hundreds of fans desperate to gain access. Luckily, organisers had put together a pretty tasty schedule for the venue so waiting wristband holders were eventually treated to something worth queuing for.

The Walkmen, Heaven Album Review


Let's face it; 'The Rat' was an undeniably astounding track. The sheer vigour was unrelenting from start to finish and it still gets mentioned today as one of last decade's musical highlights. It wasn't so much a 'My Sharona' for the band, obviously not as they are still revered and their albums are still looked forward to, but it was a song that cast a shadow over the band that has since made things very dark in the world of The Walkmen. Fortunately though, they are a band that strive in darkness and have yet to release a dud album; if anything, they have continually improved album after album (we're still waiting for a song that's better than 'The Rat', however).

The Walkmen, Interview


Interviw with The Walkmen

Unless you've been living under a darkened rock these past ten years, New York based quintet The Walkmen should need no introduction. Having formed in 2000 from the remnants of Jonathan Fire*Eater and The Recoys, the five-piece of Hamilton Leithauser (vocals), Paul Maroon (guitars), Walter Martin (keyboards), Peter Bauer (bass) and Matt Barrick (drums) have recorded six albums, each one receiving a high level of critical acclaim.
