Number six in the series is heavy on the beat scene and hip-hop with tracks from Rusty Child, edit:erase, Blake, Eleanor, DJ M-1, Calzone Kelly and Luke B while the world of electronica is represented… Read more »

New brooding and belligerent single from the Dublin duo's Think Nothing album.

We Cut Corners second album Think Nothing is forthcoming. We’ve heard ‘Every Thief’ (now down) and ‘YKK’, which showcased the quieter and more rocking sides of the band. ‘Best Friend’ is firmly in the latter, a short and sharp new single which has a more brooding and belligerent disposition than both those songs. If you’re… Read more »

The Dublin producer returns with a three-track EP of sample-based atmospheric electronica.

One of the most characteristically unique electronic producers to emerge from Dublin’s burgeoning scene in the last few years was Faws. Over two EPs in 2012, the music released under the name by Frankie Grimes was predominantly minimal late-night laid back electronica with jazz, soul and R&B influences. There were a lot more people making… Read more »

"In the advent of the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, please find attached a song written for you, your mother, your father, and your gay brothers and sisters in Russia."

As the Winter Olympics begins, the Russian government’s campaign to silence their unequal gay citizens under a blanket of patriotic allegiance just contrasts itself with more progressive nations. Putin’s macho posturing does nothing convince us. It’s like swearing off discrimination for lent putting away the offensive tea set while the good guests are in the… Read more »

New track from the singer's second EP out next month was Zane Lowe's Hottest Record In The World last night...

I have to admit, I thought Andrew Hozier-Byrne would wait a while longer before releasing some new music. Maybe work on an album with major label dolla, hit America (hello SXSW) and release a track or two. But there’s news that Hozier will release his second EP, From Eden next month on Rubyworks, the followup… Read more »

A suitably lo-fi track for the WHEREIIDANCE Vol.1 cassette release.

This new Frank B track goes hard. It’s taken from a cassette/download compilation called WHEREIIDANCE Vol.1 from Brighton based label Where To Now? which will also feature the likes of U, Lumigraph, Tuff Sherm, and Boya. ‘Phosphenes’ is a rough shaker, the kind of tune that’s perfect for a cassette. It sounds vaguely distant, dynamically… Read more »
