Live: Travis @ The Lexington.

Live Review: Travis @ The Lexington. Travis are probably not the first band that springs to mind in 2016, but with their eight studio album, Everything at Once, set for release on the 29th April, the band are still exerting themselves on the music scene.  This week saw the BRIT award winners play two back-to-back shows on the same night at north London’s intimate The Lexington. It’s been almost 20 years since the four-piece, led by frontman Fran Healy on vocals and guitar, released their debut album Good Feeling.  Mainstream success quickly followed which drew both new fans and critics in...

Live: Katzenjammer @ The Lexington.

With eclectic, folk-driven, collective groups making their mark on the British music scene for some time, it’s a wonder why Norwegian folk-rockers Katzenjammer weren’t leading the wave rather than seemingly following it as they release their third studio album Rockland.

Eschewing the usual support act for a ‘play’ (in reality, more of a funny idea involving Connan Mockasin as a lizardy music teacher who mistakes a male student with a blonde wig perched on his head for a female – hi-jinx ensue) in Boston ‘N Dobson...

Interview: Liam Finn. 67 Varieties Of Cool.

Rachel Lipsitz caught up with Liam Finn ahead of his 4 week Murmuration residency at The Lexington in London beginning 1 Sept. Thirty year-old Finn plays 67 (!!!) instruments on his recently released, third album, The Nihilist. His gentle voice belies the sheer fun and dynamism of his live shows. Often adding musician friends to the mix, and building into controlled chaos, he and his musical collaborator Eliza-Jane Barnes’ shows aren’t your usual affair. Finn effortlessly loops guitar lines, plays drums, commands a theremin like you haven’t seen since Jon Spencer, and sings–culminating in a uniquely ramshackle show that...
