Neko Case It’s a privilege to catch talented American singer-songwriter Neko Case at her sold-out Leeds gig, one of only two UK dates on the current tour. Neko Case has certainly led a life in music, as a solo artist, as a member of several bands (notably The New Pornographers) and also as a serial collaborator (The Sadies, The Corn Sisters, Calexico and most recently as a member of ‘supergroup’ Case/Lang/Viers).

It marks the halfway point of their first headline tour on the back of phenomenal debut album ‘Columbia’. That it entered the charts at number 54 is testament to the word of mouth buzz that this Doncaster trio have been creating over the last few years.

Goat Girl Goat Girl are a young all-female band from South London who have real attitude and write great songs. Their debut album, released last April, contains 19 short (most under 3 minutes), diverse and punchy songs and has received great reviews and radio play. The Brudenell is sold-out tonight for the Leeds stop on the band’s extensive tour. Goat Girl are really working hard at gigging: earlier this year I saw them in Montreal during their tour of North America supporting Parquet Courts. They were very well received by the Canadian audience and are making new friends wherever they play.

Wolfgang Flür There’s a good turnout at the Brudenell tonight to see a rare UK live show from ex-Kraftwork member Wolfgang Flür. Flür appeared as electronic percussionist on all Kraftwerk’s classic albums from 1974’s ‘Autobahn’ to 1986’s ‘Electric Cafe’. The audience at the Brudenell is a really unusual mix, ranging from long-in-the-tooth Kraftwerk fans to young enthusiasts of everything techno and electronica.
