The run up to Christmas has given us plenty of new music to enjoy while we countdown to the 25th. Frank Turner’s 2000th show live from Nottingham’s Rock City has been recorded and released for fans to relive his high intensity performance, Brian Fallon has dropped You Have Stolen My Heart – the first single from his forthcoming LP, Local Honey, and Gabrielle Aplin’s has teased another track from Dear Happy – this time in the form of ‘Magic.’
Frank Turner – Show 2000 (LP)
Frank Turner’s 2000th show at his self-proclaimed favourite ever venue, Nottingham’s Rock City, was recorded on 15th December 2016, and now three years on has been released for fans to relive his brilliant live show. Across 21 tracks, Turner rattles through favourites such as I Am Disappeared, Photosynthesis and The Way I Tend To Be before leaving the sold-out crowd with the emphatic message of “thank you so much!”

Brian Fallon – You Have Stolen My Heart
Teasing the first single from forthcoming LP, Local Honey, Brian Fallon has dropped the first single in the form of You Have Stolen My Heart. Typically raspy, Fallon’s latest offering is the perfect continuation to last year’s Sleepwalkers. He claims “every single song [from Local Honey] is about right now. This record is 100 percent about the day today.”

Gabrielle Aplin – Magic
Packed with chiming percussion, piercing snyths and dreamy vocals, Magic comes from Gabrielle Aplin’s Dear Happy (out 17th January). This is 6th track to be released ahead of Dear Happy and we are starting to get a rounded idea of what to expect from the Wiltshire singer-songwriter’s third full length record – which is described as “an uplifting pop record that chronicles Gabrielle’s life, and the experiences and cultures she has been inspired by whilst touring.”

Larkins – Pieces
Indie outfit Larkins have been tipped to be Manchester’s next arena band – and with tracks like Pieces it is easy to see the appeal. Brimming with chilling harmonies throughout, front-man Josh Noble says it tells the tale of him having no idea what to do after leaving school at 16 and dealing with the confusing by questioning everything.

The Big Moon – Carol Of The Bells
Tis the season for bands to pull out a festive cover and this year is no different. London four-piece The Big Moon have offered this eerie version of Carol Of The Bells – one of the most iconic Christmas songs ever. With Jules Jackson’s elegant vocals and harrowing piano led instrumentation, The Big Moon perfectly execute a classic. Currently drip-feeding fans with singles from new LP, Walking Like We Do, this cover is a brilliant way to show that The Big Moon are as much pleasure as they are business.

Field Music – Beyond That Courtesy
Sunderland rockers, Field Music, have been one of the most exciting artists from the north east for the past decade and a half. Constantly imagining and experimenting with new ways to convey their sound, brothers Peter and David Brewis have offered another new dimension to their sound – this time in the form of Beyond That of Courtesy, which is taken from next month’s Making A New World. Clocking in at just over 2 minutes, it leaves a taste for more – and you can expect that craving to be fulfilled with their 7th full length.
