Paolo Nutini

Paolo NutiniThis 20-year-old Scotsman (his dad's Italian, to explain the name) has been bringing his soulful croon to audiences since moving to London about two years ago.  His most recent single, New Shoes, has the kind of breezy tone heard in music by Jack Johnson or Damien Rice. It's the perfect soundtrack to the upcoming spring and summer months.

The Hours

The HoursAli In The Jungle: it's not how you start, it's how you finish… it's not where you're from, it's where you're at… it's four minutes of new music, it's a euphoric melody welded to an insistent riff… it's the greatest comeback since Lazarus. The Hours are Antony Genn and Martin Slattery: their debut album Narcissus Road was released in January 2007. .. Read More

Music Reviews

Regina Spektor

Regina SpektorThe Astoria - 16 February 2007
I have to make a confession. I'm not sure I've ever been more excited for a concert than I was for seeing Regina Spektor. This is important – I promise – because I feel like my expectations will weigh quite heavily on this review. I just want to be clear, though, that she was absolutely delightful live... Read More  

Metric

MetricLondon King's Cross Scala - 10 February 2007
From the instant Metric took the stage at the Scala, it was nothing but pure rock and roll.
