James brought their 2014 album ‘‘La Petite Mort’ to the Leeds First Direct Arena on Sunday (November 23rd) – relive the night’s action through Live4ever’s exclusive gallery, courtesy of Gary Mather, which can be seen in full by clicking on the lead image above.

Stay tuned for a full review of the gig coming soon on Live4ever as James showed off their 2014 album, of which we concluded:

“Given the under and over currents however, the skillful avoidance of melodrama is the gift of a writer projecting from the heart, and ‘La Petite Mort’s finest moment is via the gorgeous rolling piano of ‘All In My Mind‘, its tenderness a lullaby virtue.”

“Which brings us to the final question; if James are an institution, are they better off inside looking out? Are the sane people within the walls or outside? ‘La Petite Mort’ wisely doesn’t seek to answer those questions, only to create an atmosphere of understanding. In-disposable, thoughtful and without ego, it’s proof that there is surely life after the death of others.”
