London Gigs: 9-15 February 2015

Stealing SheepGig Of The Week

Singling out just one gig is a tough one this week, but for sheer anticipation alone, we’re going for Stealing Sheep¬†at Chats Palace, on Tuesday.

The Liverpool trio’s debut album, Into The Diamond Sun was released in 2012 and was a real gem. Deliciously spooked with lashings of pagan percussion and irresistible harmonies, it was a delight to see performed live. Its follow-up, Not Real, is pitched for release by Heavenly on 13 April, but you can catch a sneak peek here.

Announcement Of The Week

Another album we’re chomping at the bit to hear is John Grant’s third – the follow-up to 2013’s brilliant Pale Green Ghosts. He’s currently toiling away at it, and it looks like we could expect something around November – for this is when he’s set to play his biggest London show to date, at the Hammersmith Apollo, on the 12th.
