Loose Joints is new podcast hosted by Nialler9 and Sally Cinnamon talking to people about the music they love: old and new. For our first episode, we are joined by DJ, artist and photographer Aidan Kelly.
We discuss what really goes on in the DFA house, the majesty and tragedy of Amy, the return of Jazz music, Aidan’s desire to have a cup of tea with Liz Fraser in Bewley’s, why Sally thought Talking Heads were a band for kids and why Paul Simon would make a great secondary school teacher. Some NSFW language in there too.
Michael Kiwanuka is a 23 year-old soulful Londoner who has been supporting Adele on tour of late and just happens to sound like Bill Withers (and has covered him too). ‘Tell Me A Tale’ was produced by Paul Butler of The Bees, a band who know a thing or two about perfecting vintage sounds.
Kiwanuka’s debut EP is released through Communion in June. We could be looking at a new star here.
“It’s OK to head out for wonderful, but on your way to wonderful you’re going to have to pass through alright. And when you get to alright, take a look around, that maybe as far as you go.”
Brought to Ireland by Fresh & Noble and debuted in Cork last night, Still Bill is a documentary portrait of Bill Withers – the man responsible for stone-cold classics like ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’, ‘Lean On Me’, ‘Lovely Day’, ‘Grandma’s Hand, and ‘Just the Two of Us’.
Choice Cuts will be joining Fresh and Nobile at the Dublin screening in The Sugar Club on September 30th at 8pm. The screening will start at 8.45pm and there will be music afterwards. Entry is €7.50. More info.
