Best Gigs In London This Week: 10-16 November 2014

Tom Du Croz from LondonGigGuide selects five small/medium gigs around town this week.

Tuesday 11 November

Slow Club, Electric Brixton

Slow Club's new album Complete Surrender is out now on iTunes. They're a Sheffield boy-girl duo: Charles Watson (guitar, vocals, piano) and Rebecca Taylor (drums, vocals, guitar). The album was recorded with producer Colin Elliot, who previously helped create an equally widescreen sound on albums by Richard Hawley. Tonight their live performance takes place in Brixton. @SLOWCLUBHQ, @brixtonelectric

Jordan Hunt, Servant Jazz Quarters, Dalston

Jordan Hunt is a composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist. He's currently working on his debut EP from which this track is taken — get your gig tickets now. He describes it as a demo but to our ear it sounds very tight. @JordanHuntMusic, @ServantJazz
