Here we go.

Two of my favourite Irish acts combine on this remix of Ships‘ ‘None Of It Real’, the most recent version of which featured on the Nialler9 highly-recommended debut album Precession.

Kildare duo Mix & Fairbanks have been knocking it out of the park of late on the remix front and last week Skream played their Orange Tree Edits release at Creamfields so the music is getting out there.

For this remix, M&F have added space and length to the original creating a space-disco odyssey with an acid dancefloor shade.

Catch both acts at Electric Picnic this weekend. Ships play Body & Soul main stage on Sunday (11pm) and Mix & Fairbanks play Casa Bacardi on Friday (4pm). EP Stage times.

We’ve got the Body & Soul Festival stage times, the playlist and how here are the recommendation for 12 acts to see in Ballinlough this year featuring 9 acts & 3 DJs you must see.

Friday

1.

Anna Meredith

Friday, Main Stage, 10pm

I have zero idea what the live show from Scottish composer Anna Meredith will be like as she’s made music that had an epic brass quality and experimental post-rock-style music but if either of those show up as the sun sets on Ballinlough, particularly the bombastic ‘Nautilus’ then I’d be happy.


2.

Le Boom

Friday, Woodlands, 3am

A late-night show from one of the best new bands in Ireland? Nice. Christy Leech & Aimie Mallon are a party band who make music that moves between house, pop and electro. They are one of the hottest tickets on Irish festivals this summer so stay up late for this one.


3.

The Bug ft. Miss Red

Friday, Midnight Circus, 21:30

If it’s heavy bass and atmosphere with a gritty rhythmic shake informed by down and dirty Drum ‘n’ bass, ragga, grime, ambient and dub, then a live show from the Bug is a must.


DJs

Optimo

Friday, Midnight Circus, Midnight

JD TWitch and JG Wilkes would be an inspiration to myself and the Lumo Club crew, and no doubt countless others, because they are great DJs, they have eclectic taste, they aren’t afraid to throw a curveball in the mix , run a great label, have made great remixes and and they created the best Sunday club ever at Sub Club in Glasgow bar none. They curate and play the Midnight Circus on Friday.


Saturday

4.

Bonobo

Saturday 11:15pm, Main stage

Simon Greene’s most recent Bonobo album traded off his reputation as a creator of intricate electronica to add some toughness and dynamic dancefloor production to his music, making Migration his best work yet. Live, he’s already known for large band recreations of that music so this should be a treat.



5.

ELLLL (Live)

Saturday, Reckless In Love, 1am

Corkwoman Ellen King’s electronic is fairly uncompromising sonically, eschewing clean lines and grids for grit and lo-fi noise. Beneath it all, is a throbbing techno style. As seen in the recent Women In electronica documentary, King is also founder of the Gash Collective, who are also playing throughout the weekend.


6.

BARQ

Saturday, 1am Bulmers Lounge, Sunday Woodland stage 11:15pm

BARQ are seasoned musicians having played with Hozier, Kodaline, Monster Monster, Damien Dempsey, Loah, Lethal Dialect, Ryan Sheridan and Zaska in the past and are establishing their own rap-tinged soulful R&B jazz sound under a genre they’ve coined as “agrosoul.”


DJ

Sally Cinnamon

Saturday, Wonderlust, 11.15pm

Saturday is a great day for Irish DJs. While it would be remiss of me as one-third of Lumo CLub not to mention that we are playing twice on Saturday at Reckless in love from 4pm – 6pm and Absolut Bar late at 2am til close. So before you come over the latter, you can find my Loose Joints co-host Sally Cinnamon playing at the Wonderlust stage where I know there’s going to be be tunes I can recommend. Sally introduced me (and many others) to this track and it often gets a play in her sets.


Sunday

7.

Hundred Waters

Sunday, Main Stage, 9pm

Lisa lowres

One of my favourite live bands. The Florida band Hundred Waters‘ music features skittering electronic leaps, abstract folk textures and the undeniably beautiful voice of Nicole Miglis.


8.

Kelsey Lu

Sunday, Main Stage, 15:30 / Woodlands, 22:30

Kelsey Lu is a North Carolinian cellist and singer/songwriter who makes orchestrally-arranged ambient folk music and has an EP out on True Panther. She has earned comparisons to Alice Coltrane and Bat For Lashes, Lu’s music leans into the avant-garde spectrum yet she has collaborated with artists in the field of pop and R&B like Blood Orange, Kelela and Wet.


9.

Ships

Sunday, Woodlands 1am

They are the creators of an album that is one of my favourites of the year, an ’80s-inspired collection of strutting synth disco with heart. Simon Cullen and Sorca MCGrath will work better than most at 1am at a festival. The place to be.



DJs

Mix & Fairbanks

Sunday, Absolut Bar, 3pm


DJ Arveene has curated a whole weekend of DJs with an emphasis on the Irish selectors and the lineup is strong across the weekend with the likes of Ciara Brady, Kelly-Anne Byrne, Billy Scurry, Jimmy Rouge, Eddie Kay, Stevie G, Cyril Briscoe, DJ Deece and Aoife Nic Canna among them. Kildare up and comers Gary O’Reilly and Rob Smyth aka Mix & Fairbanks have recently got into original tracks to whopping effect, but it’s the skills as DJs playing disco and house edits and classics that started them on their path. Just listen to the Linndrum (80s drum machine) inspired mix they made for me last year.


Bonus

Sing Along Social

Sunday, Woodlands Stage. 6:45pm

Ok so slightly cheating here, but my wife Aoife runs Sing Along Social and last year’s Body&Soul was the first time her zero commitment choir debuted at a festival and it went off as you can see below. Basically, Sing Along Social is a zero-commitment choir, a group karaoke session, a party with lyrics and backing tracks. This year’s theme is Pop Battle so think Drake vs. Rihanna, Justin vs Britney, Abba vs. Fleetwood Mac and more, including props and inflatable. It’ll be gas. There’s a kids version on the Saturday too.

Sorca McGrath and Simon Cullen have been making music as Ships for the last five years. As both a creative duo and real-life partners, they have imbued their synth-disco music with genuine exploration of human feeling. The ‘Ships’ in the title also represents some suffixes using the title – ‘relationships’, ‘friendships’, ‘scholarships’. There’s connection at the heart of their creativity.

Prior to 2017, they’ve released songs that have ably glued an emotional heft to their dynamically constructed synth-pop on songs ‘Places’, ‘You’re Gonna Feel It’, ‘Space Inside’.

With Precession, Ships have taken all that guardianship, heart and knowledge and have made one of my favourite albums of the year. Songs for the mind and body. The album is one of the most beautiful and dynamic sounding records you’ll hear this year. Its production is detailed with lots of little sonic treats that easy to pick up on but hard to create.

Ships’ established sound that engulfs synth-pop, disco, cosmic disco and vintage electronica is in its DNA. There’s groove, space, funk and glittering disco balls in its fabric. Whether its the gleaming disco-funk of ‘All Will Be’, the deep peaks of ‘Around This World’ , the booming electro of ‘None Of It Real’ or the hazed ’80s billowing ‘Another Way’, these songs demand rotational spins. Friends Rian Trench (Solar Bears), Ross Turner (I Am The Cosmos) and John Cowhie (Goodtime) help out.

Key to their success are the vocals by McGrath and Cullen, which gild these songs deeper in stature. Cullen glides across the psychedelic space-rock of Tame Impala-esque ‘I Can Never’ and McGrath’s brings a connective touch to the album synth-disco highlight ‘Where We Are’.

Precession is bound to be one of my records of the year. Support the artists.


They’re selling a handmade gatefold vinyl worth your money.

The 2017 Art Trail

Dublin-based collective Algorithm have created an otherworldly portal in the form of their Space Mandala; a vortex that undulates with colour and wills the viewer to relinquish their sense of self and dive headfirst into a shifting and uncertain future. Fusing architecture, engineering and art, Rae Moore has created the Funicular Folly, an explorable terrain that uses light brickwork to create an alternative tent structure that’s begging to be climbed. As festival-goers make their way around the grounds they’ll be greeted by surprising, twinkling, provocative and inspiring pieces from artists such as Felix Power, Jane Groves, Jason Kearney and our resident land artist Christy Collard to name but a few.

Line up: Metronomy / Vitalic / Lambchop / Sleaford Mods / Mykki Blanco / Austra / Optimo20 / La Femme / Sinkane / Birdy Nam Nam / RÜFÜS / Hundred Waters / The Moonlandingz / Songhoy Blues / Tiggs Da Author / Anna Meredith / Formation / A Tribe Called Red / Kelsey Lu / Idiotape / Mammút / King Kong Company / Parcels / Brooke Bentham / Mario Batkovic / Elaine Mai / DBFC / Ailbhe Reddy / TooFools / Weval / Avalon Emerson / Mr TC / Æ Mak / The Bug ft.

One of my favourite Irish bands of the last five years, the disco synth-pop band Ships, Simon Cullen (Music For 18 Machines, Lasertom) and Sorcha McGrath (Wounded Healer) have been carefully toiling away on their debut album for a number of years and now it’s all ready to drop on May 1st.

I’ve heard it. It’s so good. Precession will be up there with one of my favourite albums of the year.

‘All Will Be’ is one of the upbeat highlights from the album (the second teaser after ‘Around This World’), a synth-pop banger with McGrath’s earworm vocals and Cullen’s production lifting it to the next level. I’ve been listening to this non-stop for the last couple of weeks. So good.

Precession, as a title is “reflective of the subtle shifts over a long arc of time and the album represents an extract of our own experiences within that. Along the way, songs have come and gone, some have come back again and we’ve landed on a collection that we feel represents where we are as musicians and as humans in the world as it is now.”

Ships – Precession Tracklist

1. Golden Rule
2. Around This World
3. I Can Never
4. None of it Real (Featuring Ross Turner on drums)
5. All Will Be
6. Another Way (Featuring John Cowhie)
7. Where We Are (Featuring a solo from Rian Trench)
8. Round and Round
9. Nothing But

The vinyl is available to preorder from Bandcamp.

The album will be available from all the usual digital download and streaming services from May 1st.

Do you like synths?

Music for 18 Machines is a reimagining of Steve Reich’s minimal 1976 piece Music for 18 Musicians on its 40th anniversary and is a co-present between Note Productions and Synth Eastwood and was conceived by Simon Cullen (Synth Eastwood, Lasertom, Ships) and he will be joined on stage in the performance by Neil O’ Connor (Somadrone).

The pair will utilise 18 synthesizers on stage.

M18M rehearsal

Again, do you like synths?

Reich’s work is a blueprint of the minimalist movement – an exploration of pattern and process which morphs into a psychoacoustic experiment that posits the question ‘what happens when a group of musicians are asked to perform like machines?’

Music for 18 Machines reverses this process somewhat and seeks to coax an expressive and emotive performance from 18 electronic instruments triggered by a single sequencer.

The show will also feature artist Anthony Murphy (Shadowlab) who has created a new illustrative interpretation of the processes and patterns embedded in the work.

The date for diaries is the 15th of September 2016 at the Button Factory in Temple Bar. Tickets are €15+fees from UTicket.

Dublin duo Ships, Sorca McGrath and Simon Cullen have been working on their debut album in their home studio Kimmage with their two cats Jackson and Frankie for the last year. With the album nearly completed, Ships not wanting to merely release digitally are aiming to put some thought and care into a physical gatefold vinyl package for the album with designer Dave Darcy.

The band are releasing the album themselves. They are looking for €6000 to cover pressing (€2k), gatefold sleeve (€500), artwork, design, printing (€1500); mastering (€1k) and video (€1k). Check out the rewards and page for Fundit and send them some money.

Ships, consisting of Sorca McGrath and Simon Cullen are one of my favourite Irish bands. Through tracks like ‘Space Inside’ and ‘You’re Gonna Feel It’ and a sound that engulfs synth-pop, disco, cosmic disco and vintage electronica, they’ve carved out a space of their own.

The pair have been working on other projects though lately, Sorca as Wounded Healer and Simon as Lasertom. Today marks a re-steering of the focus onto Ships who have a full=-length album forthcoming they want you to know about and support through a crowdfunded campaign – more on that below.

‘Around This World’ is indicative of the attention to detail, production chops and songwriting that Ships are capable of – growing from a atmospheric funk rhythm to a glittering synth journey.

We thought about all the people who have taken the time to tell us that they’d like to hear it and wondered was there a way to make that possible. We’ve decided to put it to the people through crowdfunding, anyone who wants it can get it directly from us. We don’t know if it will be successful or not, but we’re ready if it is, and we’d be delighted. We’ve been working with Dublin printer and artist Dave Darcy, of One Strong Arm, devising the artwork and we’ll keep you posted when we’ve submitted the campaign for approval. We’re playing live at the end of June and July, where we’ll be trying out some album tracks, if you want to check out what you might be getting into!

You can catch those songs live at the Interlude Festival at the RHA Gallery on June 25th and The Beatyard in Dun Laoghaire 30th/31st July.

Ships are one of my favourite Irish bands of the last few years. They have released one of my favourite songs of the last few years and I always enjoy their live shows. While the band are taking their time in the release department and are busy with other things, Sorca McGrath has been working on a new music project of her own.

Wounded Healer is an attempt by McGrath to channel her own creativity through the music process, from writing the music to producing, to recording to mixing. More spacious and slower than Ships, the Wounded Healer EP comes out on This Greedy Pig’s label The Pig’s Ear. Watch Sorca and her friends perform the EP’s first track ‘Panic About Love’ in the National Concert Hall’s rehearsal space.

“The Wounded Healer moniker represents the rupture and repair we need to heal, learn and allow new things to emerge. Embracing words that both repel and attract me, it’s an effort to accept the light and shadow side of myself. I see so much polarising in the world around us, with such a concentration on making a villain of the ‘other’, so I want to embrace both sides to begin the process of understanding that we are all these things. These songs are about noticing these patterns and making changes from within.”

The three-track EP is now on Bandcamp, iTunes and more

Vinyl Love is an idea started by Stevie G who ran it at the recent Quarter Block Party.

The idea is simple: DJs playing 7 of their favourite 7 inches all day.

I thought the day looked like fun so I asked him could we do the same in Dublin, except this time for a special cause. The Marriage referendum is taking place on May 22nd this year and I wanted to do something to raise money for Marriage Equality.

Having just got married myself, I think it’s unjust, unfair and indecent that two people can’t get married because of their gender/sexual orientation and the Marriage Referendum is our opportunity equalise that right for all Irish citizens.

So, Vinyl Love is a celebration of love and vinyl taking place two months before the vote on Sunday March 22nd on the rooftop of the Odessa Club. We’ll go all day from noon til the early hours of Monday morning.

There will be over 20 DJs and music lovers lining up to play 7 of their favourite 7 inches including:

Kelly-Anne Byrne (TXFM / Today FM) / Discotekken / Paul McLoone (Today FM/The Undertones) / Hidden Agenda / All City Records / Mother Club / Sally Cinnamon / Choice Cuts / Young Hearts Run Free / Nialler9 / Stevie G / Adultrock / Gib Cassidy (Elastic Witch & Girls Names) / Sweatbox / Una Mullally / le cool Dublin / State Magazine / Ships and more.

Facebook Event

Entry is free with suggested donation on the door. All money raised will go to Marriage Equality.

If you can’t make it you can donate directly.

Best of 2014 : Albums | Songs | Readers Irish Albums | Readers Irish songs | Remixes | Videos 


The results of your favourite Irish songs are in.  It was a breakthrough year for a few Irish acts this year namely Hozier (duh),  The Riptide Movement, EMBRZ and God Knows + MynameisJohn. Established acts or artists who have been around a while like James Vincent McMorrow, The Riptide Movement, Girl Band, SOAK, Cloud Castle Lake and Le Galaxie stepped it up.

The addition of ‘Cavalier’, ‘Red Dust’ and the ubiquitous ‘Take Me To Church’, which placed highly last year were a result of their mainstream success. You might have heard it online last year but the latter in particular was everywhere, becoming the most virally streamed track on Spotify of 2014 in the entire world.

2014 has shown that Irish acts through their deals in the industry have forged paths and made careers for themselves while writing great tunes. This can only be a good thing for 2015 as the world continues to look to this small Ireland for music. The only thing needed now is more governmental recognition of this talent. How about it?
