Alarming news that stadium rockers Kings of Leon were forced to abandon a recent gig following a surprise airborne pigeon attack undoubtedly represents what music observers would politely describe as their "Spinal Tap moment".

Just how have Kings of Leon got so big? For ages they were no more than a middleweight indie band with a little bit of underground cachet and a smattering of profile. Suddenly, they're everywhere, headlining festivals, rocking daytime radio playlists, and soundtracking Saturday afternoons in Argos.

It's not uncommon for US bands to be embraced in the UK before their homeland catches on to their charms. Certainly the Strokes, Kings of Leon and MGMT were playing big gigs and posing for magazine covers over here while, stateside, they could barely attract a groupie. It's not too often it happens the other way round (let's not forget Jay Sean, though – America, you're welcome).

The follow-up to Nutini's 2006 debut finds Ethan (Kings of Leon) Johns gamely trying to make production sense of a record that ranges from ska to soul via country and ragtime. Adventurous, but this 22-year-old does possess a voice that conveys a maturity beyond his years, even if it's lost at times due to lack of musical continuity. "Come Up Easy" is an Otis Redding-like highlight, while "10/10", a punchy ska number, teleports you to a place closer to the Caribbean than Nutini's home town of Paisley.
