Showcasing the Best New Music, Curating the Classics

PREVIEW: Gigs of the Week in Leeds, 2nd-8th November

Honeyblood @ Brudenell Social Club, Saturday 2nd November

Modern indie favourites Honeyblood – now technically consisting of frontwoman Stina Tweeddale by herself – released their third studio record In Plain Sight back in the summer. The outfit’s latest UK tour swings past the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on Saturday evening, from which you can expect some of the best songs of Tweeddale’s career on top of her commanding stage presence. (TICKETS)

Moon Duo @ Brudenell Social Club, Saturday 2nd November

Originally beginning life a decade ago as a side-project from Wooden Shjips guitarist Ripley Johnson with Sanae Yamada, Moon Duo have arguably outgrown their parent band in the popularity stakes. Their seventh full-length album Stars Are The Light, released a couple of months ago, reached beyond their regular psychedelic rock influences to experiment with softer, ambient textures. A great choice, then, between two good bands at the Brudenell on Saturday night! (TICKETS)

Loyle Carner @ O2 Academy Leeds, Saturday 2nd November

Lucky you if you managed to bag tickets for this one – Loyle Carner, one of the best (and most understated) British rappers around, comes to the Academy this weekend. His recent second studio album Not Waving, But Drowning was another gentle exploration of self and society in the same manner as his breakthrough debut, meaning that Loyle now has an excellent live set to draw upon. Keep an eye on the socials for spare tickets!

Pond @ Brudenell Social Club, Tuesday 5th November

Friends of Kevin Parker and dabblers in the same kind of experimental, psychedelic rock as Tame Impala, Australian collective Pond are currently touring behind their eighth record Tasmania and come to the Brudenell on Tuesday evening. Tickets are very nearly sold out, so act fast if you want to see this exceptional live act! (TICKETS)

Feet @ Hyde Park Book Club, Tuesday 5th November

Despite their truly terrible name, Coventry band Feet have been rightly attracting a lot of attention from the British indie press for their skewed yet catchy indie that mines the less well-trodden aspects of Britpop. Their compelling debut album What’s Inside Is More Than Just Ham – again, awful title – appearing a month ago, and their latest headline tour of the UK calls in to the Hyde Park Book Club. (TICKETS)

One True Pairing @ Belgrave Music Hall, Wednesday 6th November

Although the dissolution of Wild Beasts last year was a huge loss to British indie, at least its component parts are keeping the group’s spirit alive. First, lead singer Hayden Thorpe released his solo debut earlier this year, followed quickly by the group’s bassist Tom Fleming under the name One True Pairing. Fleming now takes his solo project on tour, which comes to the Belgrave in Leeds on Wednesday evening! (TICKETS)
