Whilst we can’t for the life of us understand why the dazzling, thrashing mouth-agape
talent that is Anna Calvi is playing second fiddle to the effortlessly
bland and pedestrian eye-shut, brain-dead talent that is Mumford & Sons,

NME Awards show Communion night at Dingwalls in London on 22nd February.
Other artists on the bill at this intimate show include Marcus Foster and Rachel
Sermanni. Communion is co-run by Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett.
But just in case your faith in music was all but destroyed by the announcement,

along as special guest to label-mates Arctic Monkeys at a special
