With a bit of a lengthy absence from the cold British lands to write new record ‘Siberia’ in her equally cold homeland of Canada, the buzz for Lights in the UK has swelled surprisingly well, and with a slight dubstep and grit in her new record it’s got all the ingredients to act as the locomotive if she can fuel it with an energetic live show.

Given the recent success of Lights‘ second studio album, ‘Siberia’, and her ever growing reputation only increasing by the day, it’s no doubt her UK album tour is almost completely sold out, and Glasgow’s King Tuts is packed to the rafters tonight to see what the versatile Canadian has on offer.

With dubstep artists such as Skrillex and deadmau5 selling out world tours, it’s no surprise that this is one of the most quickly developing genres at the moment. Internet sensation Lights Poxleitner is pushing the genre to its boundaries with her unique style, and she has already done her own world tour, having lived in Canada, the Caribbean amongst many other places as a youngster, stating that her family would have even “been happy in Siberia”, a quote which has been the inspiration for a new, very different offering from the versatile 24-year-old.

One of the UK’s biggest and most popular festival weekends, Reading/Leeds festival hosts hundreds of acts from pop to metal across an array of stages for three days. Combine mud, overly priced burgers and hot dogs with some amazing bands from across the world and you’ve got an awesome weekend ahead of you. We managed to review some of the bands at the festivals secondary site in Leeds, and here’s what we thought:

SPOTIFY: Reading/Leeds Festival 2010 playlist!

Did everyone who went to Reading and Leeds festival this year have a good time? We’re sure being back at home may be more comfy and warm but not as fun as your weekend just was, but it’s not all bad. We’ve made a playlist for all of you to relive your experience, shoving all the best artists into one chain of 37 tracks of bands and acts who played across the festival weekend. Of course not every single band that played over the weekend is on the playlist, that’d be silly and some of them were a bit rubbish. We just shoved on those that we cover on the site and think you’d appreciate the most.

If you’re a Spotify user check it out and let us know what you think of it:

Festival goers enjoy, and those who didn’t go just shove this on really loud and pretend you were there. Maybe bring some mud and grass in from outside, pitch a tent in your living room, wear some wellies and drink and dance lots!

We probably all best know Lights (and that’s her legal name now) for her electo-poppin’ bubbliness with tracks like ‘Ice’, ‘Second Go’ and ‘Savior’ almost sweet and chirpy enough to even give cavities to your cavities. Take a step back though and listen to her songs free from eletronics and studio magic, straight down to the core essentials and you’ll notice in ‘Lights.Acoustic’ that there’s a little more on offer from the Canadian starlet than you may be aware of.

Stripped down (and we’re talking musically, though undoubtedly many male adorers out there would hope for something different), album songs like ‘River’ and ‘Saviour’ are just as inviting, and arguably more real in their basic acoustic form than they are in an electronic package.
