The conveyor belt of livestreams, being our primary source of live music nourishment nowadays, is still rotating at a steady pace. 

Being the only feasible promotional tool for artists on album cycles, we've been treated to some seriously sublime shows of late. And until the landscape becomes a bit more certain, it'll continue to be the case. That might not be music to the ears of some out there, but we've rounded up a handful of shows this month that'll convert the most stubborn of livestream sceptics.

Here's our pick of livestreams to check out this February:

The Staves present: Good Woman, an exclusive livestream - 5th February, 20:00 GMT

To celebrate the release of their 4th studio album Good Woman, trio of sisters The Staves treat us to saccharine set of songs from the album backed by a full band. Recorded at London's Lafayette, this performance comes after their socially distanced Christmas show that was sadly cancelled, so be sure to soak it in.

Selector Live: Sinead O Brien - 12th Feb, 17:00 GMT

Another performance filmed from London's Lafayette, Sinead O'Brien performs a free set for Selector PRO 2021, an international music industry conference which is being held online this month. Coming top of the pile on our best EPs of last year, it's a chance opportunity to tune in and check her out for yourselves.

Mogwai: As The Love Continues Livestream - 13th Feb, 20:00 GMT

Okay Kaya, live on Valentines - 14th Feb, 18:00 GMT

Kaya Wilkins aka Okay Kaya had one of 2020's most infectious singles in 'Mother Nature's Bitch', as well as releasing two full-lengths albums so is bursting at the seams to play live. Ticket proceeds will directly benefit DrÃ¥pen I Havet, so there's literally no reason to spend Valentines Day alone when you can spend it with Kaya.

Levitation Sessions: Dead Meadow live from the Pillars Of God - 21th Feb, 01:00 GMT

Austin's Reverberation Appreciation Society have pulled it out of the bag once again with their latest Levitation Session, inviting psych-rock trio Dead Meadow to perform in the Pillars of God amphitheatre in the Californian mountains where Indian-American writer/teacher A. K. Mozumdar would hold lectures nearly a century ago. Expect a spiritual, stoner sanctuary, and see a snippet of the show below.

Bicep, live Global Stream II from Saatchi Gallery - 26th Feb, 20:30 GMT
