Life in Film

Saturday, 14 March, 2015 0 Comments

Out of Hackney in East London emerges Life in Film, which comprises Samuel Fry, Micky Osment, Dominic Sennett and Edward Ibbotson. This is Brit Pop with hints of The Smiths and David Bowie along with Belle and Sebastian, but the jangle sound of the band contains trans-Atlantic echoes of The Strokes and the Kings of Leon as well. The Followills will be pleased with the homage that reverberates right through Get Closer, which comes from Life in Film’s debut album, Here it Comes.

Song of the Year: “Family Tree” by the Kings of Leon

Saturday, 28 December, 2013 0 Comments

The date 27 July 2011 is remembered well by Kings of Leon fans. On that day, during a concert in Dallas, lead singer Caleb Followill began to ramble incomprehensibly before leaving stage, claiming he was going to vomit, drink a beer and return to perform. He never came back, causing the band to end the concert abruptly. Four days later, the Kings of Leon announced that the remainder of their US tour would be cancelled, and on 31 October came the news that after the conclusion of their Australian tour in November they would be going on hiatus. On September 24 this year, the band bounced back with the release of their sixth album, Mechanical Bull. From it, here’s the Rainy Day Song of the Year: Family Tree.
