Jonathan Wilson @ Hare and Hounds, 18th July 2019

Jonathan Wilson is a lone figure on stage this evening, usually he plays with a band but for this tour he has chosen to explore smaller venues and has abandoned the complex layers of sound produced by the additional players in favour of a stripped back version of his music. Considering the calibre of artists […]

Villagers & Pat Dam Smyth @ Hare and Hounds, 9 June 2019

Every once in a while you see a performance by a band that makes you re-evaluate their entire back catalogue. I have liked Villagers since their debut in 2010 and have been impressed with each successive release, but only now I have seen them live do I revisit those albums with a renewed sense of […]

Corduroy @ Hare and Hounds, 21st March 2019

Back in 1995 when most people still looked at you with a blank expression on their face when you mentioned music festivals, back when the Reading Festival was still awash with big name acts and dogs on ropes were only just dropping out of the scene, that was the last time that I saw Corduroy. […]

Goat Girl @ Hare and Hounds, 8 May 2018

When a bunch of leftfield Brixton guitar kids like Goat Girl sign the dotted line to a leftfield label like Rough Trade, on the same day that a small majority of Brits sign to go inward looking and insular then you know the universe is dancing the ying and yang jig. They are one of […]
