u cLOUDDEAD, Reaching Quiet, Boom Bip and Dose One and Radioinactive The names might not be familiar but that shouldn‘t stop you taking a chance on some quality underground hip hop. Headliners from the US. cLOUDDEAD (pictured) have Ninja Tune Records as their UK home and are related musically to acts as diverse as Boards of Canada. Grandaddy and EPMD. The hip hop equivalent of an out of focus holiday snap. Venue. Edinburgh, Mon 22 Jul. Biffy Clyro, Hell is for Heroes and Kinesis A three- way headlong dive into the murky world of pop metal. Biffy Clyro made a few heads spin during their recent appearance at T in the Park with their juddering Nirvana meets Mogwai snarling behemoth of a sound while HIFH follow a similar. if more conventional rock pattern. Garage. Glasgow. Tue 23 Jul.

James Yorkston and the Athletes, the Zephyrs and Malcolm Middleton Should the summer heat be just to much for you (!). cool off with some gently reflective musings from some of the most engaging live acts this good COuntry have to offer. Please note that King Creosote and Damien Rice play the Glasgow date instead of Malcolm Middleton. See preview. Barf/y, Glasgow. Tue 23 Jul; Venue. Edinburgh. Sat 27 Jul.

Burt Bacharach The master of mellow. the earl of easy. prince of perfect pop . . . Bacharach goes by many names. but ‘one of the finest songwriters ever' is most appropriate. Playhouse. Edinburgh. Mon 29 Jul.

m The Liars, Miss Black America and Kain For those among you for whom perfect pop is just not enough. why not have it glazed with a sheen of garrulous NY punk attitude? The Liars are not the new Strokes/Hives insert name of latest garage act here: they worship at the altar of Wire. Gang of Four and the Pop Group and have the imagination to succeed past the hype. King Tut's Walt Walt Hut. Glasgow. Mon 29 Jul.
