Another week in Edinburgh, another week packed with gigs - let resident gig guider Jude Dryden of Radio Enjoyment take you by the hand.
Another week begins and another confusing, unbelievable volume of gigs to see in the next seven days - Radio Enjoyment's own Jude Dryden returns with her pick of the schedules including a superband and a number of other Scottish favourites.
And So I Watch You From Afar are that post-rock band that figured out that injecting a solid amount of attitude into your structured and complex melodies is exactly what a largely instrumental, fairly tired, genre of music needs. Simon explores Gangs, the group's newest delivery.
Simon made his way down to Edinburgh's Cabaret Voltaire to see hardcore punk outfits Black Lungs and Fucked Up. He came bruised, sweaty, and happy.
Check out the Radio Enjoyment guide to gigs in Edinburgh for this week.
Nanucation is a series of documentary podcasts which take a closer look at the music you love. This week, Emma Segal presents a probing look at the genre known to some as Chillwave.
Once again recommended gig listings come courtesy of Jude Dryden from Radio Enjoyment with a number of must see gigs from Edinburgh and further a field (sent with a apologies).
Metronomy hadn’t been to Edinburgh for a while, and the release of their new album The English Riviera was an excellent excuse to make the trip up North and hitting up Edinburgh’s Cabaret Voltaire. Simon went and checked it out.
Simon talks to the Smith Westerns about SXSW and touring with The Vaccines, and bobs along to a lively set by The Ceasars, a well put together performance by the Smith Westerns, and a really-hard-to-take-seriously set from The Vaccines.
