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

Golden B.C. Interview (Part 1)

golden bc interview

I recently caught up with Brian Offredi A.K.A. Golden B.C. to talk about life, the universe and everything but somehow ended up discussing the merits of 'Robert Palmer-esque' stagecraft, stealing the limelight back from waitresses and even modern day umbrella jousting. I've had to split this interview into two posts as Brian was more than generous when … Continue reading Golden B.C. Interview (Part 1)

Introducing: The Family Monore

family monroe

Christmas is great but I cannot personally think of any one event responsible for backing up so much work. I mean It's the end of January and I'm still feeling the effects of it. As I mentioned on my Facebook page (yes this is  a shameless plug, please click on the link and like my … Continue reading Introducing: The Family Monore

A Song For The Weekend: Of Monsters And Men

So I'm, guessing you have all heard the name 'Of Monsters And Men' mentioned on more than one occasion over the course of the summer. If not, then I'm sure you heard the song 'Little Talks' being blasted out of the radio every ten minutes. If you are still answering no and or shaking your … Continue reading A Song For The Weekend: Of Monsters And Men

Introducing: I Am Oak

  I haven't brought you any new music  in a while,  but I have a real treat lined up for you this week (Something tells me that I have said this before, on more than one occasion). But anyway, the band I have for you this week are called I Am Oak (I'll let you … Continue reading Introducing: I Am Oak

Introducing: Raving Wild

  Raving Wild are a two piece  indie band from Aylesbury, England. They describe themselves as 'an acoustic indie duet with folk influences and some rock thrown into the mix'. So its  real pick and mix of music. The band is made up by Graham Iddon (rhythm guitar/vocals) and Dave Cocking (lead guitar/percussion). They met … Continue reading Introducing: Raving Wild

20,000 Views

My blog has just reached and surpassed a very important milestone today. This milestone of course being the 20,000 mark. When I started this blog back in October I never even dreamed of of receiving this much views. And its not hard to see why as my monthly views between October and January never went … Continue reading 20,000 Views

Coldplay..The band i’d love to like

The majority of my life (all 20 long years of it) have been one great immersion in the enigma which is Coldplay. Seeing as I was born in 92' and Coldplay first broke on to the scene in 00' with 'Yellow' its fair to say that their countless singles have formed a major part in … Continue reading Coldplay..The band i’d love to like
