Adrian Crowley

One of the most unassuming talents in the music business, Adrian Crowley is one who plies his trade with little fanfare besides winning the Choice Award in 2009. The troubador released his seventh album Some Blue Morning last year on his long-standing label Chemikal Underground. Crowley also tours extensively and has built a loyal following in the Benelux region and Germany where he frequently tours. Furrowing a terrain of love and loss like fellow musical peers Richard Hawley and Stuart Staples from Tindersticks, Crowley is never fearful of letting stunning arrangements and collaborations breathe with purpose within his soundscapes. This time round he's brought Katie Kim on board for duets which call to mind great pairings from Nancy and Lee to Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan. The soft sweep of his lyrics gently nudge all in his presence to an elevated state of existence. Experience it. / Zach Joyce

Isabel Nolan - 'Bent Knees Are A Give'

Walking into Bent Knees Are A Give initially feels like entering some sort of dystopian future memorial to the Lion King, as your eyes meet the draped flags and the eye-catchingly flamboyant yellow-gold lion. However, the flag poles are bent, and the lion offers it’s thorn-impaled paw, awaiting assistance. What we are witnessing is in fact an intricate and thoughtful meditation on power and it’s limitations. The otherwise murderous lion has to reduce itself to the victim seeking help; the bent flags, intended to command respect, have lost the emphasis of their meaning. Isabel Nolan uses sculpture, drawing, photography and text-based work in an all-encompassing exhibition centred around a motif of poet John Donne’s funerary sculpture. The high ceilinged space in the Kerlin Gallery emphasises the magisterial feel of the pieces, adding to an intriguing display. / Ben Allen

Dutch Uncles

Dutch Uncles’ Duncan Wallis throws shapes in a manner most of us wouldn’t be seen doing drunk, never mind sober, onstage, and in front of thousands of fans. Imagine David Byrne’s nerdy jitters crossed with Ed MacFarlane‘s body-shaking moves and you’re close. The Manchester band’s frontman may be the visual focus – the office-friendly high-waist slacks and tucked-in shirt are also noteworthy strings to his style bow - but that’s not to detract from the quartet’s superbly calculated math-pop songs. Recent fourth album O Shudder is the best approximation of Dutch Uncles’ influences to date, taking in all their beloved 1980s touch points (Japan, Prefab Sprout, Talk Talk) infused with a pithy new wave attitude. Great pop music should infect the head, heart and hips; a trio of targets DU are getting ever closer to hitting. Win Tickets / Brian Keane
