Introducing: Anderson

anderson music

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

The Hassle

So I think I finally figured it out. And by 'IT' I mean the reason for my absence from this self built web-presence (not the Stephen King novel about scary clowns). This blog is over 4 years old. I created it, set it up with its imaginative title (ahem), wrote some blog posts and here … Continue reading The Hassle

All Tvvins – Darkest Ocean

Irish Band All Tvvins New Song Darkest Ocean

Have I introduced you to All Tvvins? No probably not. I must confess that there is a great deal of fantastic music that has taken up residence on my various playlists, portable music delivery systems (my phone's mp3 player) and most importantly my ears but has eluded any mention on this blog. All Tvvins are one … Continue reading All Tvvins – Darkest Ocean

Video: New Enemies Single – Play Fire

Enemies - Irish Band - Play Fire

Irish band Enemies have re-emerged from a two-year hiatus with a new single. Play Fire, a somewhat rejuvenated track which draws a fine line between the meticulous world of mathematically inspired rock (too far with genre specifics?) and joviality of pop music, sees the four-piece pick up from where they left off almost 24 months ago. Bearing … Continue reading Video: New Enemies Single – Play Fire

A hipo-critic no more

Writing

I'm not a musician and I've never claimed to be. And so naturally, I'm often asked why I write a MUSIC blog. I can't sing (although try telling me that after a few drinks) nor can I play an instrument, yet. I have recently acquired an electric guitar but that's a story for another day/blog. … Continue reading A hipo-critic no more

Jameson St Patrick’s Live – Vicar Street

Whilst the world was busy painting their famous landmarks green, Vicar Street (and more so Jameson) were going one shade deeper with a star-studded, whiskey fuelled Paddy's Day (well Paddy's Eve) celebration. Kicking off the party was a band who are anything but strangers to the atmospheric Dublin 8 venue. With the echoes of We Cut Corners' … Continue reading Jameson St Patrick’s Live – Vicar Street

Words

words

Words are great. You can use a thousand of them in one sentence and end up saying absolutely nothing. And in the same breath, you can paint pictures, conjure grand tales and captivate an imagination with just a handful. I was racking my brain earlier, trying to find something to write about, something to say. And … Continue reading Words

Music Festival Infographic

music festivals

So festival season is well and truly upon us. And to mark the occasion here's an interesting Infograph from the guys over at Oxygen8. It's packed with some strange and unusual facts about smart phone usage at music festivals. The most notable of which being that "Almost double the number of men preferred their outfits … Continue reading Music Festival Infographic

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

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
