FESTIVAL REVIEW: Summer Sundae, Leicester

Summer Sundae is a The Kaje favourite. A city festival which is so far removed from the city. Just a stone’s throw from Leicester city centre, Victoria Park is transported for one weekend a year to a world of artistic wonder. With performers including Adam
Ant, Katy B, Ocean Colour Scene and Patrick Wolf on the line-up, 2012 was full of early promise.

However, the Katy B headlined Friday night failed to live up to expectations. With a distinctly small audience wandering between four performance spaces, it was difficult for any real buzz to be created. While Bastille packed out a sweaty Watering Hole, Patrick Wolf mourned diminished audiences in Crocodile’s Lagoon for his tender acoustic set. For her part, Katy B pulled in the punters and had all ages bouncing to her euphoric pop-dub.

Thankfully the sun shone on Saturday and the audience arrived in droves. With a spring in everyone’s step, Victoria Park was abuzz. Hotly tipped girl rockers Savages brought a touch of Juliette Lewis inspires glamour to the day, while the lush Lucy Rose won hearts with her wistful woes. Birmingham’s Goodnight Lenin’s Stornoway-esque folk captured hearts, while Adam Ant made everyone ‘Stand Up and Deliver’ with a riotous set. Ocean Colour Scene were worthy headliners, though the stand out performances of the day came from the enchanting Agnes Obel and addictive Lianne La Havas.

Sunday saw rain but few were deterred. Appearing far too early in the line-up were Leicester’s finest Midnight Wire, who out in a set so fresh and energetic that memories of early Arctic Monkeys were provoked. Equally exciting are Norway’s Team Me who whip the main stage into a frenzy. Beth Rowley and Juan Zelada both inject a little blues into the day, but it is Sheffield’s Hey Sholay that steal the crown with an unforgettable romp.

As ever Summer Sundae does not disappoint. An eclectic line up celebrates an array of artists and caters to all tastes. While there were a handful of lowlights, notably the over-hyped Friends and frantic Japandroids, here at The Kaje we say roll on 2013-though next time have La Havas headline!

ALBUM REVIEW: Lianne La Havas “Is Your Love Big Enough?”

An appearance on the Jools Holland show is rarely a bad career move, but seldom does it really bolster an artist to the next level. However, when 22 year old South Londoner Lianne La Havas appeared on the show last October, her tender, thought-provoking rendition of “Age” became the talk of the music world for her stirring delivery and unforgettable vocal. Any music journo worth their salt knew that La Havas was a star in the making, and unsurprisingly she went on to appear in a wealth of Tips for Top 2012 lists. So with so many eyes watching her, the question on many a tongue this week is can La Havas overcome the external pressures and deliver on her highly anticipated debut “Is Your Love Big Enough?”

Thankfully the answer is a resounding YES! “Is Your Love Big Enough?” may be a little ballad heavy, but La Havas’ silky smooth tones and subtle compositions are beautiful to the core. “Is Your Love Big Enough?” truly showcases La Havas’ ability to really channel her emotions without ever overblowing the sentiment puts her in a similar league to effortless chanteuses Erykah Badu, Ane Brun, Ayo and Asa.

La Havas is at her finest when she is at the extreme of a spectrum. Album standouts are the effortless beauty of the stirring introspective “Lost & Found” and the fresh bite of break-up anthem “Forget”.

“Is Your Love Big Enough?” is so intrinsically beautiful that it is night on impossible to criticise. From the reflective pondering of the heartbroken – “Is Your Love Big Enough?” to the nonchalant sass – “”Don’t Wake Me Up”, La Havas engages her listener with her insightful musings and toe tapping numbers.

La Havas is unlike many of the artists who show early promise, top polls and the disappear, she has managed to followed through with a gracefully impressive debut and if there is any justice in the world, she will reap the rewards of her consistently superlative efforts. Without any doubt La Havas is the true star of 2012.

LIVE REVIEW: Erykah Badu, Hammersmith Apollo (London), 27.06.2012

Lianne La Havas is even more excited than the ecstatuc audience at the impending arrival of r’n’b legend Erykah Badu to the sold out Hammersmith Apollo. With songs from her impending debut album, the hotley tipped La Havas screams Badu’s name out frantically during her set, yet keeps her cool as she hypnotises her audience with her tasty tracks. With echoes of everyone from India Arie to Badu herself, La Havas is a class act who will soon be as respected as her idol.

With an extended break between sets, the audience’s excited anticipation results in a chain of screams before Badu’s calming arrival. A divine presence, Badu oozes cool as she launches into het unforgettable set.

As she meanders through material old and new, Badu redefines what it means to captivate an audience. Unlike many of her contemporaries, Badu pulls no stunts, simply singing her way into the hearts if those around her.

In what feels more like an intimate jam session with her close pals, Badu entrances the packed house into a shoulder swaying, hand punching, singalong. Blissful, calming, exciting and charming, it is little surprise that the roof is nearly roared off as Badu closes her hour and a half long set in what feels like less than a blink of an eye.

With both La Havas and Badu proving their dexterity effortlessly the evening is beyond even words for perfect. This is an occasion where wow will have to suffice.

NEWS: Lianna La Havas To Support Erykah Badu At Bluesfest

Hotly-tipped soul-jazz songstress Lianne La Havas, hailed by one US critic as “the most striking female voice to emerge from Britain since Adele”, has been confirmed as the support act for Erykah Badu’s highly anticipated show at Hammersmith Apollo next Wednesday June 27th.

In little over a year, La Havas has gone from performing in tiny jazz clubs to making national TV appearances, touring the US with Bon Iver and gracing stages at some of the UK’s biggest music festivals.

This Hammersmith Apollo date, part of BluesFest 2012, sees Erykah Badu make a welcome return to London following her sold out show at Brixton Academy last summer. A multi-award winning trailblazer, Badu has influenced countless artists over the years, and her appearance at BluesFest 2012 is a fantastic opportunity to witness a true musical pioneer in action.

NEWS: Summer Sundae Announce More Acts!

SUMMER SUNDAE WEEKENDER 2012!
DE MONTFORT HALL AND GARDENS
17th 18th 19th AUGUST 2012
Presented by Coda and DMH

FIFTH WAVE OF ACTS ANNOUNCED FOR THE SUMMER SUNDAE 2012 BILL:

MICACHU AND THE SHAPES/ MAN LIKE ME
JAPANDROIDS/ BETH ROWLEY
THE STAVES/ BASTILLE
HER NAME IS CALLA
CHARLEE DREW/ KYTE/ VOWS
COWBOY/ BELLAWAVE

 AND THE ACOUSTIC CAFÉ WITH:
SIOBHAN MAZZEI/ PRASH GOR/ THE SIMPLETONES/
THE SKUNK-BOY PROJECT

Summer Sundae Weekender are delighted to announce the fifth wave of artists on 2012’s line up, establishing the event once again as an essential date in the summer music calendar.

Micachu and the Shapes take pop into unchartered territory and have been known to take to the stage with an array of customized and homemade instruments. Amongst their musical inventions is a xylophone constructed from light bulbs, and a musical ‘Cloud Chamber’ made out of Pyrex dishes. Signed to Mike Skinner’s record label, Man Like Me is one of the most hotly tipped acts around. Their highly energetic mix of vibrant beats, cheap synths and strange sounds is intoxicating. Brit Award nominee Beth Rowley drifts seamlessly through many different musical styles, melding blues, country, folk, gospel and Latin American music into her own soulful sound. The Staves songwriting is striking and exquisite, a melding of still, bright English Folk and sublime West Coast pop that when performed live is capable of plunging an audience into awed silence. Bastille began as an alternative identity for Dan Smith whose ‘Flaw’ video went viral at the start of 2011. Since then Bastille has continued to soak up the spirit of revolution and change that his name connotes producing an array of mesmerizing noir ballads and infectious anthems. Leicester singer-songwriter Charlee Drew has acquired an impressive online following over the course of the past year. Having featured on Skepta’s album and joined him on tour he is now working on his anticipated debut album. Also added to the bill are Leicestershire locals Ktye who bring shimmering ambience to the world of pop, Cowboy who have have reformed and are back this year with their new EP and finally legends of the local music scene Bellawave.

Joining the Drowned in Sound stage are Japandriods. On a musical mission to be ‘maximal,’ The Canadian duo’s dynamic sound runs the gauntlet of rock & roll sub genres and could easily be interpreted as the output of five or more musicians. Post- Rockers Her Name is Calla have gained critical acclaim for their dazzling take on dynamic guitar music.

Also at this year’s Summer Sundae Weekender, taking place at The Watering Hole on the morning of Sunday 19th August is The Acoustic Café. This will feature performances from some of Leicester’s hottest local talent including the dramatic and mysterious Siobhan Mazzei, the free flowing, soulful vocals of Prash Gor, a dash of acapella and barbershop from The Simpletones and the ukulele equipped The Skunk-Boy Project.
