Live Review: Benjamin Booker @ Manchester Gorilla

Posted on 21 Nov 2017 at 12:55pm

Some venues suit some acts, and tonight is like some kind of power couple.

Benjamin Booker launches, well saunters, on to the stage, but from there it’s explosive save for the slightly slow fuse of opener Slow Drag Under. Booker’s tempered opening shot oozes savvy blues nods and just feels right. It’s lived in, gritty and authentic and a great calling card for the rest of the show.

In fact, it almost sums up the entire show; later there may be energy and fireworks, emotion and soul, and all are brilliant snapshots of Booker’s talents, but they never stray past a core set of values. Values that are on display time and time again throughout the show.

Live4ever’s Essential Listening 2014: Best Indie Tracks

Posted on 15 Dec 2014 at 5:31am

Another year, another twelve months when hundreds of bands have been showcased on Live4ever via reviews, New Tunes Guides, interviews and Presents features.

Here, our editor Dave Smith has picked out 20 of the best Indie songs for you to revisit or perhaps discover for the first time, be it the ‘naive enthusiasm’ of Wild Smiles, the ‘raucous, foot-to-the-floor, blink-and-you’ll-miss singles’ of Slaves, or the ‘sense of joy, of wonderment’ that underpins Trampolene‘s ‘I Don’t Know‘. Tomorrow, Trampolene will be talking us through ‘I Don’t Know’s origins and their plans for 2015.

Don’t forget, you can catch up with our Essential Listening 2014 series so far at this link. The final installment, The Albums, is coming next week.
