Kings of Leon

Music review: Kings Of Leon - The Followill foursome don't do humour, but Mechanical Bull sounds promising

“I'm proud to have done this here in London,” Caleb Followill announces at the end of a live-streamed, one-off set, the decision to bring the Tennessean foursome back to the UK proving inspired. Kings Of Leon only played a short arena tour in June, yet selecting a theatre tiny in comparison cements the continuing warm affection between group and fans that the singer rarely fails to remind have been with them the longest.

The new Revenio Carbon racer from Raleigh

Cycling review: Raleigh Revenio Carbon

Lacking a little oomph, but some very nice touches

Album: The Computers, Love Triangles Hate Squares (One Little Indian)

Caught in the net: Fans' fund gets Teen back in the studio

Up-and-coming Brooklyn four-piece TEEN (pictured) have turned to Kickstarter to fund the recording and release of their new Carolina EP – kck.st/11KIK5u. Things are looking good with the group already surpassing their $5,000 target ahead of their donation deadline tomorrow. The all-girl quartet offered up a sample track from the proposed EP in the form of the title track, a nice stew of dreamy psych-pop and krautrock, which can be heard at snd.sc/Zv2Yt3.
