Kevin Devine, Soup Kitchen, Manchester

February 10, 2014 Gig, Reviews 1 Comment

By Dave Beech

February 9, 2014

As we descend the stairs in to Manchester’s Soup Kitchen, a reasonably recent venue by the city’s standards, it’s obvious that this isn’t your usual spit and sawdust kind of establishment. A cool waft of air hits us in the face, followed immediately by the kind of damp smell you find in old cellars. And that’s precisely what the venue side of Soup Kitchen is, a damp, draughty cellar. Thankfully though, it only serves to add to the intimate and close quarters aesthetic that tonight upholds, and as such the candour brought about by the two singer/songwriters gracing tonight’s stage is apt. … Continue Reading

February 10, 2014 Album, Reviews 1 Comment

By Rob Crozier

February 10, 2014

The Casket Girls – True Love Kills The Fairy Tale

February 7, 2014 Album, Reviews 2 Comments

By Dave Beech

February 7, 2014

Last year, bands such as Chvrches, London Grammar and The Joy Formidable to name but three, all released albums that (aside from being some of the strongest releases of 2013 in general) were all electronically-driven and featured some of the most distinctive female vocals of recent years. Now, it seems the trend has been far from bucked, as Georgia’s The Casket Girls release their second album True Love Kills the Fairy Tale, and, like last year’s releases before it, proves to be another fantastic example of a genre that isn’t. … Continue Reading
