Introducing: Anderson

I would just like to jump in very quickly and introduce this guy before he explodes and I miss the proverbial boat. Daniel 'Anderson' is a Dublin based folk artist, one which I've followed with great interest since I saw him enthrall the mellow crowds of the INEC Killarney when he opened for Villagers back … Continue reading Introducing: Anderson

New Music: Neon Atlas – Velocity

When considering the recent success of the Irish music scene, be it on a domestic or international level, it's easy to overlook the People's Republic (of Cork). But that's not to say that things are quite down in the Rebel County. Recent years had seen a steady host of interesting bands emerge from Cork, Neon … Continue reading New Music: Neon Atlas – Velocity

New Music: Villagers – Courage

Villagers, the solo project of Conor O'Brien, are back with a brand new tune and  a brand new beard. But as this is a music blog and not critical facial hair review site (although...)  you can listen to the new track 'Courage' below.     This new musical offering from O'Brien is both haunting and … Continue reading New Music: Villagers – Courage

Former Monarchs – Origins

Former Monarchs, The Cost of Living

Some new music for you on this fine Sunday afternoon, all the way from the 'People's Republic of Cork' (they made me say that). Former Monarchs are a four piece 'Math Rock' outfit (I hate the name of that genre) who have been on the scene for a couple of years now, learning their trade … Continue reading Former Monarchs – Origins

Introducing: Asgeir

asgeir

Let me introduce you to my latest obsession. Asgeir, or Ásgeir Trausti Einarsson, is an Icelandic singer songwriter who has been on a sort of meteoric rise (never really knew what that last expression means) since his emergence back in 2012. Having been forged in the land of Ice and Fire, Asgeir has had somewhat of … Continue reading Introducing: Asgeir

Introducing: Gangs

Gangs

Irish four piece Gangs have turned many a head following their formation back in the not so distant 2012. And in the relatively short space of time wedged in between their conception and the present day they have achieved some fairly solid accolades. Hot Press (one of the very few Irish music magazines) may have … Continue reading Introducing: Gangs

My Tribe Your Tribe

My Tribe Your Tribe is the solo project of musician and former Boy Lights Fire frontman, George Mercer.

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

Introducing: Analogue Wave

Analogue Wave

Let me introduce you to Analogue Wave,  a band (or electro super-duo in waiting) who have all but taken over my musical playlists ever since their compact disc bombardment of my letterbox commenced a couple of months ago. Okay it was 3 CD's that fell through my door, but that single action has all but managed … Continue reading Introducing: Analogue Wave

Introducing: Sparkle Motion

Sparkle Motion

Sparkle Motion is a three-piece alternative rock band from Castlemaine, County Kerry, with their sights set on nothing less than the coveted headline slot at Glastonbury.
