[Watch] Elbow - "Lippy Kids" Live @ Mercury Prize Awards 2011

We've already seen James Blake, Metronomy and the big winner on the night PJ Harvey perform at the Mercury Prize Awards last night. Next up I'd like to present you with Manchester boys Elbow showing theirs live skills with a great rendition of their track "Lippy Kids" which features on their nominated album Build A Rocket Boys. After seeing these guys for the first time last weekend I can honestly say I was blown away. The beer to blood content in my body may have been a little mismatched but hey, they were incredible none the less. 

You lucky people in the US will soon be able to get your hands on their LP. Pre-order it here.

[Watch] TV On The Radio, Battles, Elbow, Chemical Brothers & Warpaint Glastonbury 2011 Highlights

If you've been living under a rock for the past week then you may have missed last weekend, which musically was what we'd call a goodie. With the 40th anniversary of Glastonbury Festival being this year the festival went off with a huge bang. Loads of surprise sets not to mention the actual line up minus surprise sets. We posted a good deal of our favourites yesterday (sorry if they got taken down before you got a chance to watch 'em but the internet police got to some). Today though we have our final blast of personal faves for you to sit back enjoy.

We have TV On The Radio for you to enjoy firstly up at the top followed by Battles after the jump. Then my local boys done good Elbow will entertain you with some great sing alongs from the crowd. Don't fret though, there's still two more lots of highlights to check out after that with a great set from The Chemical Brothers and a chilled set from those sultry girls, Warpaint

With it being such a momentous weekend of live music in a rather large gathering of fields in the UK Countryside why not soak it up from the comfort of your home or office. Sit back and enjoy one of the greatest festivals the world has to offer. It'll be 2013 when we next see bands performing at Worthy Farm with them taking a year off next year to rest the  fields (plus there's some event in London with loads of Athletes and stuff, the Olympics or something, Google it). So until 2013 let's have a toast to the organisers and performers for what was truly a great weekend of music.

[Coachella 2011] Elbow's Coachella Performance

One of Manchester's best exports did us proud last weekend at Coachella performing to a packed out tent in the intense heat, of course, I'm talking about Elbow. Pulling off a stellar set to the thousands of onlookers, why not sit back and take a few out of your slow Wednesday to see what all the fuss is about when it comes to these guys and their arena filling music? The bands new album Build A Rocket Boys! is out now so grab a copy if you like what you see in the set at the top. Another great album from the group who have a knack of delivering when they get together in the studio. Kudos to them.
