Loose Joints is a podcast where we talk to a guest and play music they like new and old. True to the name, the podcast features a loose collection of tunes, tied together by very little logic, just like our chats. Nialler9 and Sally Cinnamon are your hosts.

This month’s guests is Cian Murphy, one half of I Am The Cosmos, and music shop dude at Freebird Records. Last year’s 12″ release is a taster of what’s coming from the synth-electronic duo.

This month’s chat we talk to Cian about influential Cosmos music, get deep into new age, why Gorillaz cartoon characters are not better than Zig & Zag, Steely Dan and some great new music selections.

Gavin Elsted is one of the three resident DJs at Lumo Club (alongside myself and Simon Roche), the monthly night which celebrated being a a year-old in Yamamori Tengu in Dublin in October, a year in which we also took the club ethos to Body & Soul, Metropolis, Forbidden Fruit and most recently, Dingle this weekend.

Gavin is also the producer known as Adultrock, who released the fine Push & Pull EP this year.

The next Lumo is Thursday December 22nd – our Christmas party. Tickets here.

Here are his top 10 tracks of 2016:


1.

Youandewan – ‘Waiting for L’

From one of my favourite albums this year. I had seen the name knocking about for a while and one of the online retailers like Phonica or Juno had posted this tune and I was hooked. Subtle, minimal instrumentation but a lot of emotional power in this track.


2.

Pional – ‘The Way You Like’ (feat Empress Of)

One of two tracks featuring Empress Of on my list. Pional’s productions are always very special and this is no different – equally at home on mainstream radio as it would be in the club.


3.

Parple – ‘Sacred’

I think I’ve played this at nearly every Lumo since I got my hands on it. A muscular modular workout from John Talabot under a pseudonym, this never fails to get bodies moving. The best bit is when it cuts to just the beat and the bassline – you can hear the tops off from a mile away.


4.

Machinedrum – ‘Do It 4 U’ (feat Dawn)

I am fond of the occasional bit of maximalism and this definitely ticks the hyper hyper box for me. Very close to something off Rustie’s Glass Swords but more hook-laden and a bit more direct.


5.

I Am The Cosmos – ‘Letting It Go’

A beat, a bassline and vocals. That’s all this is and yet it manages to be as engaging as anything else you’re likely to hear. If this is what the full-length that this is from is going to sound like, I can’t wait to hear it.


6.

Empress Of – ‘Woman is a Word’

My favourite pop song of 2016, hands down. Must have listened to it about 20 times on repeat when I first heard it. Super hooky, direct and to the point – no messing about.


7.

Cloud Nothings – ‘Modern Act’

Single handedly keeping me in shouty guitar man land are Cloud Nothings. This is technically a 2017 tune because the album’s not out yet but as teasers go it’s pretty enticing. Plus I wanted to put Brand New in here but I don’t think I’d get away with it.


8.

Asa Moto – ‘Wanowan Efem’

Super slinky electronic funk from the DeeWee label. One for earlier in the night to encourage loosening up, a secret weapon in the warm up for me.


9.

V – ‘La Nouvelle Epoque’

From the split with Ripperton (I reckon V is actually Ripperton as his remix history would suggest) on Fort Romeau’s Cin Cin label, classic chugging electro complete with New Order-alike bassline and Blue Monday-choirs. No complaints here.


10.

Mmoths – ‘Eva’

I think the Mmoths record is an incredibly accomplished piece of work and this is the standout from it. Deft touches to the tune bring it out of the machinery it was made on and back towards a starker, more humanised sound.

Three years on from the release of Monochrome, the debut album from Ross Turner and Cian Murphy as I Am The Cosmos and the presence of its analogue synthesizer dance music in my regular listening has never diminished.

Where Monochrome was inspired by a single song from the Japanese band Mariah, a band who have inspired and moved crate diggers and music outliers alike, the band’s new material, live in recent shows, had much more muscle.

‘Letting Go’ and ‘Taciturning On You’ are the first bits of new original music from I Am The Cosmos since Monochrome and there is a marked difference in the approach.

The A-side follows the band’s remix of Girls Names last year, all pulsing synthesizer electronics, swallowing Joy Division vocals that itself starts to lose control echoing the title.

The B-side ‘Taciturning On You’ premiered here on Nialler9 for the first time, relies on meandering atmosphere before a motorik rhythm and billowing oriental synth notes dominates the instrumental track.

The Single is released on Happy Valley Records (Lung Dart, Hazing, Cloud Castle Lake) on 1st July backed with a Lumigraph remix. iTunes link. / 12″ Pre-order.

I Am The Cosmos Live dates

02/07/16: Castlepalooza Festival, Offaly IE
07/07/16: The Nines, London UK
16/07/16: Bello Bar, Dublin with This Greedy Pig, Padraic E. Moore.

The synth-loving electronic duo of I Am The Cosmos have reimagined ‘I Go’, a track from Jape’s recent album This Chemical Sea and have roped in Cathal Cully of the Belfast-based band Girls Names on vocals.

Their version is built on hard-edged arpeggiated synth notes, which their new music has been delving more and more into, while Cully provides some extra dark punk energy.

The original:

Jape plays Vicar Street next Saturday December 12th with support from Pleasure Beach.

Join us, and him, for the afterparty buzz at Bar Tengu at our third Lumo Club night where Richie is the special guest DJ.

Over three days and nights in Cork the Sounds From A Safe Harbour’s programme took hold in the venues of the city that saw the likes of Lisa Hannigan, Wild Beasts, The National’s Bryce and Aaron Dessner, Richard Reed Parry, Crash Ensemble and many more contemporary artists play shows in a new festival put together by Mary Hickson of the Cork Opera House and curated by Bryce Dessner.

It was a superb first year, with bonded warehouse food, cocktail bars, gigs and talks; exhibitions and screenings and an attendance that further suggested Cork was more than ready for this unique style of contemporary/classical yet alternative-leaning festival to dock in the city.

As part of the whole experience, I curated a free music trail around 5 pubs/venues in the city including Crane Lane, Bodega, The Oval, Poor Relation and BDSM which featured shows from My Brightest Diamond, I Am The Cosmos, Rusangano Family, Bantum, Shookrah, This Is The Kit, I Have A Tribe, Katharine Phillippa, Somerville, Quiet River Of Dust, Slow Skies, Loah, Conor Walsh, Deady, Adultrock, Talos and more.

If you missed out, here’s flavour of the weekend through the lens of Bríd O’Donovan. Here’s to the hope of the return of the festival next year. Thanks Mary, Bryce and Cork for having me too.

Sounds from a Safe Harbour is a new festival taking place around the city of Cork from September 17th to 20th. put together by Cork Opera House with a lineup curated by Bryce Dessner of The National.

Already set to feature the likes of The Gloaming, Julianna Barwick, My Brightest Diamond, Sam Amidon, a collaboration between Lisa Hannigan and Aaron Dessner, Valgeir Sigurðsson, Amiina and lots more as previously announced, today the festival have added Wild Beasts to their lineup. The band will headline Cork Opera House on Sunday, September 20th.

Sounds from a Safe Harbour music trail

On a personal note, I’m pleased to share the news that Nialler9 is curating a music trail around the city that weekend which will take place in various venues and pubs owned by Benny McCabe including the Rising Sons brewery, Bodega and more.

The confirmed lineup for the free music trail which will take place in the afternoons, evenings and late-night during the festival includes Slow Skies, I Am The Cosmos, Rusangano Family, Somerville, Bantum, Talos, Shookrah, Conor Walsh and Vinyl Love with more to be confirmed. Artists from the existing lineup will also be playing these music trail shows.

Other confirmations

Soundings from a Safe Harbour – Lisa Hannigan and Dylan Haskins’ podcast turned live show will welcome Bryce, Aaron and Jessica Dessner in the unique setting of a Bonded Warehouse down on the Port of Cork. The show happens in three sections – the first is stories to inspire, then stories to alarm, and finally stories to humour. Each section is bridged by a song on those themes.

Cork salad king Rocketman will host a food area at the Bonded Warehouse which will include Cork food, food trails and special dining experiences.

The Glucksman will present a week long exhibition of the mesmerising seascapes of renowned Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugimoto. The exhibition will take place in one of the interior chambers of the historic observatory on the UCC Campus, evoking the connection between tide and moon, sea and stars.

A screening of Matthew Ritchie’s ‘Monstrance’, which is scored by Bryce Dessner and features Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond).

‘Sail to Sirius’ – Saturday 19 September. A vessel will leave Port of Cork with 40 souls, bound for Sirius Arts Centre in Cobh. On board, the seafarers will be treated to a live performance by Landless before alighting at Sirius for lunch on the venue’s veranda, overlooking Cork Harbour. This will be followed with a double billed performance by Rainwear and Sirius Arts Centre’s artist in residence Nad Spiro.

Cork’s own Alex Petcu-Colan will present a percussion programme in CIT School of Music’s Curtis Auditorium with a programme entitled WoodMetalWater with the Bangers and Crash Percussion group.

Craig Carry of Fractured Air is teaming up with Filter Cafe for an exhibition of work created in response to the festival programme.

Cork Concert Orchestra and the Lords of Strut will also play over the weekend.

Some shows are free, some are ticketed and you can buy a ticket for all shows all at the Ticket section.

Longitude Festival is fast approaching this weekend in Marlay Park and while you already probably know the big draws you’re going to see whether it’s Haim, Disclosure, Ben Howard, Massive Attack, Rudimental, Hozier or Chvrches, like last year, here are my recommendations for five acts per day to see that are lesser known but equally worthy of making your festival.

There’s also a Spotify playlist of Longitude artists at the end of the post along with the site map and a timetable.

You can catch me DJing at the TXFM stage on Sunday night alongside Kelly-Anne Byrne and Claire Beck. My show on TXFM on Thursday night at 10pm will be a Longitude special too.

Friday | Saturday | Sunday | Spotify playlist & timetable


Friday

1. Lasertom

lasertom

Red Bull Music Academy Stage, 3:15pm

When not rocking some sweet electronic funk with his partner in Ships, Simon Cullen delves headlong into elongated gilded space-disco. Last year’s Drift album collated his cosmic grooves into one place and live, recently at Body & Soul, Cullen had pushed the shapes of the songs into more hypnotic synth-laden structures.


2. Snakehips

snakehips

Heineken Stage, 4pm

From recent collaborations with Sinead Harnett to George Maple, London production duo have shown they have the chops to make head-nodding sunshine summer jams, halfway between R&B and electronic.


3. I Am The Cosmos

cosmos

Red Bull Music Academy Stage, 15.45pm

Monochrome is one of my favourite albums of the last five years and that’s reason enough to recommend the Dublin pair. Ross Turner and Cian Murphy’s moody disco is infused with the brittle beauty of warm synthesizers of the past. Live, they expand, with members Rian Trench and Glen Keating into a propulsive and sophisticated live electronic band.


4. Krystal Klear

kk

Heineken Stage, 6.15pm

The Irish-born Manchester based DJ and producer has moved from electronic disco into deeper dancefloor weapons on his own label Cold Tonic in recent months and the sound really suits him, particularly when a tune as epic as ‘Squad’ is in his record bag. I would go for this song alone.


5. John Talabot

jt

Heineken Stage, 7:30pm

The Catalan producer’s 2012 album fin brought him international acclaim but he’s mostly spent the last two years DJing around the world since then with the exception of a handful of live shows. Listen to his three-hour set from the Button Factory last December for an idea.


Also recommended on Friday:

Bonobo, Samaris, Parquet Courts, Shane Linehan.
