THE GIG
Nadine Shah, Malpas, Palace - London, The Old Blue Last


A launch party for the release of her ‘Dreary Town’ EP which is out from today on Apollo, Nadine Shah’s harrowing, soul-infused songs pack out an intimate London venue tonight. Also keep an eye out for Palace, who’ve only a trio of songs to their name, but all three are excellent.

THE SONG
Halfrican - Disciple
Disciple by Halfrican

Glasgow’s Halfrican have a debut EP - ‘Hot! Hot! Hot!’ - which is a good half a year old now, but the three piece of Sancho Buna, Jackson Marlette and Anne Droo have just started selling out shows, plus there’s serious merit in lending these tracks to a walk outside in the now-blistering sunshine*. ‘Disciple’ asks for followers; people to walk arm in arm with the three-piece in their quest to take fuzz to thrilling new heights. Its 1 minute ought to last forever, but despite being cut short, you’re unlikely to experience a more thrilling 60 seconds all week, even if you go skydiving while trying to Houdini yourself out of a bodybag.

Sometimes there’s nothing more exciting than a series of rough edges; a semi-lost but ultimately well-intentioned piece that steps outside of its parameters in an act of unbounded lunacy. It’s exciting. And ‘Dance, Love, Desire’ (a trio of aptly sense-enhancing words) is a vibrant lesson in how to make the ultimate of your most intense bursts of creative energy.
