Listen: Manchester Orchestra + Alt J

Had a solid week of music last week, kicking off with the truly excellent Metronomy at Rock City in Nottingham

Then on Wednesday I went to BUG – a music video showcase part of Leicester Comedy Festival

Hosted by Adam Buxton, it featured highlights from the regular night held at the BFI in London

Lots of funny videos and references, but the video below really stuck with me for it’s stunning shots – it was mesmerising to watch on the big screen

Not a new song, but new to me

Alt J (∆)

And on Friday I saw Ghostpoet at Sumo in Leicester on Friday – his broad appeal was evident in the mixed crowd

But it wasn’t just the man himself who impressed – support act Alt-J (or ∆ – try it on your keyboard!) provided an interesting blend of styles

See what you think…
