Tuesday, 23 October 2018 Written by Huw Baines

The Hold Steady will return to London next spring for three shows, following up a successful visit earlier in 2018.

The rock veterans are set to take over the Electric Ballroom on March 8 and 9, with a stop at Oslo inked in for March 10. To help celebrate a decade of the band’s ‘Stay Positive’ LP, they’ll also host a Sunday screening and Q&A for their A Positive Rage concert film at the Hackney Picturehouse. Stay tuned for ticket details. “We are calling this The Weekender, and we hope to make it an annual event,” they said in a statement.

Along with looking back at ‘Stay Positive’, the band have been rolling out a steady stream of new material in the last year or so. The latest instalment of their singles series - Confusion in the Marketplace b/wT-Shirt Tux - arrived in September alongside shows in Toronto and you can stream it below. Head here, meanwhile, to read about their March London shows, which added up to a boatload of good times.

Illustration: Thomas Norton There are easier jobs than singing along with Craig Finn, particularly when he’s in this sort of mood. His arms are spread wide, proselytising like the old days. He shimmies and shakes. His guitar, never his closest friend, swings at his waist like an invitation to a party he’s only half into. His words pour out and are yelled back by everyone who can keep pace; anyone who hasn’t already screamed their voice to shreds. It’s good to see him back in a bar band, baby.

Jeff Tweedy - WARM (Album Review)
Thu 13 Dec 2018
Jeff Tweedy’s first collection of solo songs adds up to a gentile album of warm Americana that stumbles along in joyous reverie and elegant inebriation. It’s a fine turn from the Wilco frontman, whose band’s 25 year musical catalogue has sometimes fallen flat, but whose previous album—2016’s ‘Schmilco’—seemed to reinvigorate and freshen their sound. These good vibes have continued on 'Warm'.

I absent-mindedly scroll Twitter in a glass shelter as the December cold gets its claws in. Before skipping over a review of the latest Jungle Book remake I’m stopped mid-feed by an autoplay video. Julia Roberts dances in a subway carriage for the New York Times. She grins, the plastic chairs smile back with yellow and orange teeth. The sound is off—my headphones are still playing Hop Along’s Not Abel. The weird thing is, that song won’t yield the floor. Instead it steps in to lead.  
AFI - The Missing Man EP (Album Review)
Thu 03 Jan 2019
Fans of AFI, and perhaps rock fans in general, have always struggled with a sprawling, multifaceted idea that the writer L.P. Hartley put beautifully in his novel The Go-Between: “The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there."
