Just in time for Christmas, the Loose Joints Podcast is back with a look at the best of 2016. The podcast features Nialler9 and Sally Cinnamon talking to a guest about the music they love: old and new.
On this episode, singer and TV presenter May Kay joins us to talk about what floated our boats this year. We also talk about Fight Like Apes, MayKay’s band who just played their last ever show last week along with her experiences at presenting Other Voices.
The IFI in Temple Bar are having a music month in October which means they’ll be showing three films of interest to music fans.
1. Bjӧrk: Biophilia Live
First up is Bjӧrk: Biophilia Live, a live film which captures Björk’s ambitious Biophilia live show will get its Irish debut on Friday October 17th and run for seven nights exclusively. The film was made by Nick Fenton and Peter Strickland and captures the final live show of the tour which takes in songs old and new.
2. Northern Soul
Secondly, Northern Soul is the genre of music that took hold in the clubs and dancehalls of the North of England and it’s also the name and inspiration for Elaine Constantine’s debut film which is centred around the 70s scene. The film starts showing on Friday October 17th at 8.45pm.
3. Jimi: All Is By My Side
Finally, Jimi: All Is By My Side, by John Ridley is a biopic that imagines Hendrix before he was famous and stars Andre 3000 of Outkast. Some of the film was shot in Dublin. It opens on October 24th.
