Jorja Smith It was a bitterly cold winter's night in Coventry, for the presentation of two of the brightest and authentic emerging acts in UK music. Jorja Smith being supported by Mahalia at the Coventry Central Library, a very intimate yet beguiling venue, at some points throughout the night you were certain people wanted to let loose but then quickly realised they were in a library.

Sleepwalkers by Brian Fallon Is Sleepwalkers the album to push me kicking and screaming back into Fallon’s brand of Americana? Maybe... Opening track If Your Prayers Don’t Get to Heaven is vintage Brian Fallon. Catchy, melodic and deceivingly simple, the New Jersey songwriter has clearly lost none of his soul. Indeed, this album is more upbeat generally than pretty much anything Fallon has been involved in since the Gaslight Anthem’s American Slang.

The Lovely Eggs Tonight The Lovely Eggs play the first gig of their tour to promote the new album, ‘This is Eggland’. It’s all rather special as the venue is ‘The Yorkshire House’, a gig-loving pub in the band’s hometown of Lancaster. The Yorkshire House is a small venue and the tickets quickly sold-out when they went on sale, so we are expecting a classic hot sweaty evening of gyrating bodies and uplifting loud music.

Nadine Shah Geordie singer-songwriter Nadine Shah, has been making a real impact with her impassioned ‘Holiday Destination’, one of the best albums of 2017. While the album seethes with anger at the state of the world, Shah has a reputation as a very charming and personable performer who also likes the odd tipple, so we await the start of the gig with interest.

Highly Suspect If you've not heard of Highly Suspect then in 2018 that's all going to change. The trio originally from Cape Cod, Massachusetts deal in the sort of rock that fits easily along side day time radio friendly pop yet often nips across the border into harder territory… Think Royal Blood and you won't be far off.

Album Review: Microshift by Hookworms Hookworms' sound previously epitomised darkness and depression expressed through dissonance and well-crafted cacophony whereas Microshift is a transformation into the more palatable realms of electro-indie rock. The title of the opening track, Negative Space, suggests that this album isn't one of overwhelming positivity despite the more upbeat essence to the music which is evidenced by the desolate searching lyrical content.

Album Review: Technology by Don Broco Don Broco have gained a large following in the UK since their formation in 2008, in the same year releasing their 'Thug Workout' (2008) EP. A fresh and exciting blend of intense post-hardcore mood swings, heavy riffs and casual-tongue in cheek vocals saw intrigue from fans, 'Big Fat Smile' (2011) only consolidated this and saw them supporting the likes of Four Year Strong and We Are The Ocean.
