A Song For The Weekend: Ordinary Love

U2 Ordinary Love

U2 are very much the human embodiment of Marmite. Some people love them whilst more love to hate them. Of course the Dublin four-piece differ greatly from the notorious sickly brown goo. These differences can be quantified in the form of the Irish bands Grammy success, record album sales or even their high protein content … Continue reading A Song For The Weekend: Ordinary Love

A Song For The Weekend: Latch

Kodaline

I haven't done one of these in a while, a long while come to think of it. But rather than re-use the most commonly present sentence on my blog 'sorry I've been busy bla bla bla' I'm just going to get on with things, business as usual. (although to be honest I've been really busy … Continue reading A Song For The Weekend: Latch

What’s Happening

blog_awards_2013

Two years ago on this very day, a certain somebody decided to put fingers to keys and start a blog. The blog was of course this one and the person, have you guessed yet? It's been a busy couple of years, starting with a handful of film reviews and even fewer followers. But somehow, against … Continue reading What’s Happening

A Band For The Weekend: The Statics

the statics

Yes, I said band! I wanted to kill two birds with several stones in the form of a single blog post this weekend, so I have quite cleverly (even if I may say so myself), decided to combine the 'song for the weekend' segment with the new band 'introducing' segment. Call it crafty, lazy, whatever … Continue reading A Band For The Weekend: The Statics

A Song For The Weekend: Devils

analoge wave

Remember Analogue Wave, the Dublin based electro duo I wrote about a couple of months ago? (https://keelanfoley.wordpress.com/2013/07/06/introducing-analogue-wave/) Well they've only gone and released an album, a debut album to be exact. And it's a cracker. But don't worry, you won't have to rely on my solitary opinion for long. I'm working on an exclusive album … Continue reading A Song For The Weekend: Devils

A Song For The Weekend: Taro

alt-j

The beauty of Alt-J (well for me anyway) is that I have no idea what Joe Newman (the band's frontman) is singing. He could be spouting out streams of random babble and I'd have no idea (Please tell I'm not alone here). But surely this can't be a favourable attribute for a band to possess. … Continue reading A Song For The Weekend: Taro

Two Songs For The Weekend: Why Not Sure

Travis

As the title suggests, I have selected two songs for this weekend. And of course, why not sure. So I have decided to mix things up a (very) small bit, with two bands that I respect and adore very much. I could rabbit on and try to justify my selections but it is probably best … Continue reading Two Songs For The Weekend: Why Not Sure

A Song For The Weekend: There Goes Our Love Again

white lies Big TV

I know the weekend is technically over but it's still Sunday night, making it the weekend. And so bearing this point in mind, here is this weekends offering. Taken from White Lies new album, Big TV, here is the KFMB's (Keelan Foley Music Blog's) SFTW (Song For The Weekend) 'There Goes Our Love Again'. I wanted … Continue reading A Song For The Weekend: There Goes Our Love Again

A Song For The Weekend: Disco

saint yorda

The blog felt a bit cold, almost lifeless, for the past few months and I could not figure out why (Well apart from the fact that my posts have been far less than frequent). But one of the more noticeable absences would have to be the patented, world-famous 'A Song For The Weekend'. Whilst I … Continue reading A Song For The Weekend: Disco

A Song For The Weekend: The Fallen

I recently came to the startling realization that my blog is lacking one vital component. Well it's missing many but I just happened to spot this one. So what absence an I talking about? From the title of this post you may come to two very different conclusions. One, you may take the reference to … Continue reading A Song For The Weekend: The Fallen
