Matt Berry comes to the Kazimier with his set of psych-folk and tracks from his new album, Kill The Wolf.
Liverpool arts organisation Mercy have been playing around with glitched-up, spooked-out explorations in language for a while now, and now with Electronic Voice Phenomena, they’re taking the whole thing out on a UK tour, visiting town this Wednesday. Calling on the supreme talents of poets Ross Sutherland, Hannah Silva and SJ Fowler, we’re promised rather [...]
Thea Gilmore is about to release her 14th album. The critically acclaimed singer has always been prolific. But, following an A-listed single on Radio 2 and her latest record being named the same station’s album of the week, the Oxfordshire-born, Cheshire-based songwriter is about to enter the big rooms. New album, ‘Regardless’, is a belter, [...]
We love Sound City. And we love that this year’s line-up (in music and chat) is the best yet. But, doing our homework over the past few weeks, we especially love how it’s introducing us to amazing new, homegrown talent. We’ve got a clash of about five Liverpool acts just tonight alone. There was a [...]
Ragz Nordset is a name you all should know. The Nordic chanteuse has bewitched acoustic audiences around this town and beyond for a while now. Supporting the likes of Laura Marling and Wild Beats, Ragz has built quite the following. Followers who hang on every delicate word released from her delightful melodies. That’s all about [...]
It’s always satisfying when the right man wins. And, at last Friday’s excellent GIT Awards ceremony, that’s exactly the way things turned out. Sure, the night was confirmation that the big winner was the city itself – the diversity and maturity of the musical talent on show was gobsmacking. So much so that the stand [...]
We remember watching Miles Kane back in the early 2000s as part of upstarts The Little Flames, whose sassy, aloof indie-pop briefly lit up the city. Since then, Kane’s career has had an upward trajectory: joining forces with the Arctic Monkey’s Alex Turner for the excellent Last Shadow Puppets, schmoozing with rock royalty, and honing [...]
Not at the GIT Awards tonight? Have no fear, there is a plan B. Hop over to House on Bold Street, where there’s a tasty line up of talent gathered together in the basement (and a DJ set from GIT shortlisted electronic man of mystery, Baltic Fleet) in the name of Na Na Na Night. [...]
Banning music is what Putin does to Pussy Riot. Is what the Taliban does to, well, music. It’s not something we do here. We keep on rockin’ in the free world. Until, that is, when the BBC has these sudden, blinding revelations that it knows what’s good for us. This weekend, as it wades in [...]
If you’ve experienced a few nights at the Kazimier, you’ll know that despite the cutting edge dance music and indie that passes through its doors, its heart is rooted in folk music. Not just any kind of folk – the sort of joyfully fun, honest, slightly shambolic, Eastern European party music that’s been the soundtrack [...]
So, she’s dead. It’s fair to say that only a tiny percentage of Liverpool and the north will be mourning Margaret Thatcher’s departure, and if Twitter reports are to be believed we’re actually more likely to be holding impromptu street parties and setting of fireworks to celebrate. During Thatcher’s reign in the 80s, the frustration [...]
Ever had ambitions of being Axl Rose? Or a burning desire to be Bryan Ferry? You’re in luck – Camp and Furnace are introducing a brand new karaoke night that’s set to be a total blast. Rockaoke is karaoke with a rock ‘n roll twist (well, duh) – you’re restricted purely to anything good, with [...]
This year’s GIT Awards shortlist has been announced, celebrating the best of Merseyside music from the past 12 months. Wave Machines (pictured), Clinic, Dan Croll, Stealing Sheep, By The Sea and more all feature in the list, compiled by a number of specially appointed judges across the city. The full list runs as follows: Baltic [...]
A Liverpool alumni returns to the city for a Q+A and screening of his new film about a very different, secret, City.
We love a li’l bit of Bastille – last time they were here they played a storming gig at the Stanley Theatre, and this time they’re back for an appearance at Sound City. Fresh from their #1 album ‘Bad Blood’, they’ll be headlining the Duke Street Garage on Thursday night. They’re actual, proper popstars now. [...]
