After moving back to Oxford on Friday, last night I went to my first gig for just over two weeks (the longest gap between gigs since my first of the year, I think!) - and caught Little Brother Eli playing an acoustic set at The Bullingdon for Oxfam. I owe discovering them partly to Oxford Sofar Sounds and partly to Tigmus, and in my opinion, they're one of the best local bands at the minute - and certainly one of my favourites. Their unique musical style and the energy that lead singer, Alex, puts into performances, makes their sets really enjoyable - and he puts as much into acoustic sets (such as last night, and when I saw them playing at Sofar Sounds Oxford last year) as full band electric sets. Loving this new video of the band from Sofar in London, which has gained over 1000 views in just a few days!
Go here to read my post about the recent album announcement - it's called Cold Tales and is out on 24th June, and they'll be back at The Bullingdon on 25th June to launch it. Gutted I didn't take cash to the show last night as they actually had copies of the album for sale... love grabbing records at shows before their release date, especially over 2 months before!
