This week’s hottest ticket

Sufjan Stevens

Critics' choice

Like a one-man Simon & Garfunkel for the twenty-first century, Detroit-born alt folk luminary Stevens is a real one-off. He’s dabbled over the years in chamber-folk, electronica and Christmas carols, but his latest album ‘Carrie & Lowell’ is a heartbreaking and breathily intimate tribute to his late mother that’s up there with anything he’s recorded to date. Hear selections from that alongside older fan favourites at this pair of Southbank shows.

Gigs just announced

Lianne La Havas

Critics' choice

Still just 25 but tipped by Prince and with a Top Five debut album under her belt, south London singer-songwriter La Havas recalls Feist and Erykah Badu with her velvety vocals and mellifluous, synth-shimmering folk-soul sound. Her new album ‘Blood’ could win her a second Mercury nomination, so hear it first at this special launch gig at the beautiful Wilton’s Music Hall.

Wet Wet Wet

The aptly-named Scots, who reformed in 2004, headline with their wide-screen soul-pop. They've fully recovered from lead singer Marti Pellow's assorted smack dramas, and are back filling arenas in the wake of their eighth album 'Hope'.

The Bots

Critics' choice

Californian teen tearaways Mikaiah and Anaiah Lei make rambunctious, fuzzed up, DIY punk rock, stoked with a smidgen of pop, a dash of early White Stripes and the occasional heartfelt slowie.

Barfly Tuesday May 26 2015

Lady Leshurr

Critics' choice

The whip-smart, versatile MC demonstrates the clever wordplay and part-spoken, part-sung flows which have earned her plenty of hip collaborations.

The Strypes

Honey, I shrunk The Beatles! Irish lads The Strypes make One Direction look like The Rolling Stones: they're all still in their teens, and have already sold out the Electric Ballroom and supported Arctic Monkeys. We wouldn't be surprised if one or more of them has a pushy parent who's played the boys a lot of British and Irish rhythm ’n’ blues records from the ’60s, and encouraged them to get the appropriate pudding-bowl haircuts. But they're impressively skilled for their age, and present a scarily convincing facsimile of the era's best bands – complete with Bo Diddley covers – despite being too young to remember The Libertines, let alone The Yardbirds.
