With Adele’s title song for ‘Skyfall’ winning the James Bond franchise’s first ever Academy Award, Leeds Student Radio is celebrating with a one-off special dedicated to the history of Bond music. Join James Hanson on Tuesday 26th February from 7-8pm for a whistle stop tour through the soundtracks of 007. From Shirley Bassey to Chris Cornell, Louis Armstrong to Madonna, this programme will leave you shaken and stirred.

Matt Tasker called up Matt Cocksedge, guitar player of Delphic ahead of their gig at The Cockpit in Leeds on Sunday the 10th of February. They talked about Delphic’s new record ‘Collections’, a record that has split both fans and critics and Matt describes as ‘shocking’ on first listen. We get an insight into the writing and recording of an album that includes dubstep guitar lines, light drum and bass as well as a guest rapper over a beatboxer. Matt also tells us about his passion for music videos and what to expect from Delphic’s tour.

On Collections, Delphic are almost unrecognisable from the hotly tipped electro pop/rock act they emerged as in 2009. A transition was expected, Collections was not. The most striking aspect of this record is the changes within. Seemingly not content with simply changing their style once, Collections is a journey of change. It cannot be described as covering a variety of genres, Delphic in many ways have invented their own, changing and experimenting constantly. After ‘Of The Young’, a transition track with continuity from their debut, Acolyte, that sets up expectations for the rest of the album, everything changes. The R&B sound promised by the band fully emerges on ‘Exotic’ where old fans will be shocked to hear rapper Greg B over a beatboxer. ‘Atlas’ has some controversial dubstep guitar lines and the phenomenal ‘Don’t Let The Dreamers Take You Away’ teases into gentle drum and bass which would not have been out of place on a Katy B record. The lyrical strength of the album shines here, with female vocalist Rebecca Lovell giving real power to, “I’m running through lightening fields”. Only ‘Baiya’ and ‘Memeo’ hark back to the Delphic of old and are therefore the most instantly likable whilst others demand more attention.

On reflection, this mixture should have been anticipated from an album called Collections and from a band that are not apprehensive to break down barriers. The problem is with the expectations that inevitably accompany this record. It sounds more like a compilation than an album and this will ultimately divide listeners on personal preference. Delphic have made the record they wanted to make. Yes, it’s inconsistent. Yes, it seems somewhat inaccessible in a first listen. However, ultimately Delphic wanted to challenge the state of music with this album. Whether they have truly succeeded is yet to be seen, but they’ve created a diverse and interesting record that may lose the attention of old fans, but will doubtless bring in many more. Disregard expectations and the beauty of this record can be discovered. Delphic have certainly not made this an easy task, but it is a rewarding one.

Delphic play at The Cockpit in Leeds on the 10th of February

 

So the first bands for the 2013 Live at Leeds Festival have been announced, and there was a ripple of excitement soon as the line-up photo hit our Facebook images. Just one day of the 4-day city-wide event has been announced, and Leeds Student Radio favourites AlunaGeorge are scheduled to play a major part. They will feature alongside Rudimental, local band the Pigeon Detectives, and Everything Everything, whose latest album ‘Arc’ entered the chart at no. 5.

Elsewhere on the bill, we are also very excited about the likes of Birmingham bands Peace and Swim Deep, the latter of which joined us for an exclusive session last year. Also, the likes of China Rats, Marika Hackman, and Dancing Years (all of whom have been on our playlist) will be playing on Saturday 4th May.
