‘9 (After Coachella)’ is a fizzy electronic pop song with whirring sounds and big bass stabs and frenetic co-production from Sophie.

The song was written by the Norwegian producer last year after Coachella when he lost a girl in the crowd he was into. The video delves into the singer Karen aka MØ and Magnus aka Cashmere Cat’s back stories. So we meet their parents and their pets. It’s a cute and engaging video.

Longitude Festival is this weekend in Marlay Park and as is customary here are the acts to highlight on your lists and timetables. 12 acts playing, 4 per day – you simply must see, according to Nialler9.


1.

Kelela

Friday, Heineken Stage, 17.30

kelela

Kelela is the owner of one of my favourite voices in music. The Los Angeles singer released a great mixtape Cut 4 Me and last year’s Hallucinogen EP cemented her status with one of the best songs of the year – ‘Rewind’ (there’s a fascinating Song Exploder about it). Recent appearances on tracks from Obey City and Clams Casino add to attraction.


2.

Hare Squead

Friday, Heineken Stage, 14.45

harewsquead

From Tallaght promise to major label deal in less than two years, and they’re just getting started. As the band’s first proper single ‘If I Ask You’ shows, Tony Konstone, Jessy Rose and E-Knock are three lads as comfortable with R&B, pop and electronica as rapping. Live, they always bring a full live-band and a party atmosphere that veers from ramshackle to varying degrees of professionalism with energy and big smiles.


3.

Kendrick Lamar

Friday, Main Stage, 21.15

kendrickj

Since the release of last year’s To Pimp A Butterfly, King Kendrick has been on a mission to show he means business live, enlisting the likes of Anna Wise and Thundercat for his band and delivering next level performances on late-night TV and the Grammys among others.

The last time he was in Ireland, at Vicar Street, he gave us a rap show of a high calibre, this time at Longitude, I feel he’s going to show just how far he has left his former self in the dust.


4.

Adultrock

Friday, Red Bull Stage, 17.30

adultrock

If you like your dance music robotic but with a touch of the real, get your ears around these dancefloor cuts from Adultrock. The Push And Pull EP is the latest release: electronic music with arpeggios, tough basslines and percussive sparkle, anchored by Gavin Elsted’s vocals. Live, it’s an all-analogue affair duo performing face to face. Gerrin.

had to cancel her gig in The Academy a couple of Saturdays ago due to illness. Disappointment was had. Turn that frown upside down maybe because now you have months to practice those ponytail-swinging moves (hey, she’s a busy Danish girl).

The gig is now in The Academy on November 4th.

All previously bought tickets remain valid for the new show.

Tickets priced €17.35 excluding fees are on sale now through Ticketmaster.

If you needed more compelling evidence that Danish youngster Karen Marie Ørsted aka is the coolest new pop star around? Peep the video for her new single ‘Waste of Time’. She was one of the best things I saw at this year’s South By South West festival and I expect her to be highlight of the Longitude Festival come July, all despite not being able to buy any of her songs here in Ireland yet. What’s up with that?

…and some not so good ones ones.

When I’m asked why I go to Austin for South By Southwest, the answer is basically: to see as many new bands as possible. The festival features over 2000 bands playing over 10 days so I try take in as much as I can. You can see/read myself, Una Mullally, Finian Murphy and 45 Sound’s SXSW coverage over at Red Bull Ireland including some video interviews and sessions.And pick up Day & Night on Friday for an interview from SXSW with Little Green Cars from myself. On with the good stuff…
