Sleepy Sun – Queen’s Social Club, Sheffield 18/04/14

Sheffield United playing at home up the road? The bingo night next door? For whatever reason, Sleepy Sun's first visit to the Steel City didn't go exactly as planned.

These New Puritans – Barbican Centre, London 17/04/14

As they did with Hidden, These New Puritans return to one of the UK's premier art spaces to recreate Field of Reeds in its entirety.

Tim Hecker – Oval Space, London 14/04/14

Sound artist Hecker treats us to more of an exhibition of his craft than a gig.

Kurt Vile – All Saints Church, Brighton, 13/04/14

Though Vile's playing is immaculate, cold stone and Catholic orthodoxy prove the wrong backdrop for this solo set.
