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 »

The first properly-recorded single from the Derry singer on Chvrches' new label.

By now, readers of this site or any other site will have a rudimentary knowledge of the young Derry singer-songwriter SOAK who has played Other Voices and generally made people much older than her 17 years feel like a bit of a kid again. The big news in the past week was that SOAK signed… Read more »

"The tale of a local rock band who incur the wrath of an irate neighbor who later falls foul to the calmly psychotic, local vigilante...".

The Mighty Stef’s recent Iveagh Flats EP was a fine snapshot of a band at their best and ‘Nightwatchman of the Iveagh Flats’, from that EP is now a single with a gritty video by Lindsey Byrne. The Mighty Stef play Whelan’s on Friday with Sonance Hotel and The Statics. See more gigs in the… Read more »

A haunting club composition is forthcoming on Champion Sound.

It sounds like Pete Lawlor aka Cork-based producer Replete has been working hard at his craft. Last year’s ‘Never This Way’ was the sound of the Kilkenny man go deep. New track ‘Hold Me’ digs equally deep in its rhythm and allows some subtle breathing synths, lurching piano-house, vocal samples and digital bass to walk… Read more »
