seen-london

SEEN is pleased to hear that Albert Man is set to release a live album ‘Live at St Pancras Old Church, which was recorded during the EP launch of ‘Nothing Of Nothing Much’ back in February 2017. Featuring songs from last year’s studio album ‘Cheap Suit’ and the more recent ‘Nothing Of Nothing Much’, the album also features a previously unreleased track ‘Groundhog Day’ which you can get as an instant gratification download with any iTunes pre-order. The album is already available for pre-order on iTunes and is scheduled for a 19th of May 2017 release, digitally and on CD.

SEEN has had a sneak preview of the album and is delighted to say that Albert’s trademark soulful vocals and particular brand of well-written accessible pop continues to enthrall his audience. SEEN’s favourites were ‘Dream Team’ and ‘Riding Shotgun’. The great thing about Albert’s songs are the skilful way he tells a story with his lyrics, and also the way in which he captures a particular moment in the progress of love. Anyone who’s experienced the heady rush of love, and the feeling of invincibility that comes with it will instantly identify with Albert’s songs.

It’s great, too, to see live gigs in the intimate setting of a church. It turns the gig into something that London does so well: an experience. Albert Man is off on tour soon and is set to play the Fiddler’s Elbow on the 17th of May.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
