With a background conducting orchestras and hosting open mic nights New York’s Lower East Side, Cal Folger Day is not your typical American transplant to Dublin. Her latest solo release, the Adornament EP, was recorded on an 8-track in Woodstock with vocal takes captured in Brooklyn and Dublin and put together in Ohio. The music… Artists:

Wexford songwriter Justin Cullen released Slow Season, his debut album as Frankenstein Bolts last year. He has since teamed up with guitarist/vocalist Dan Comerford and the pair were recently selected by judges of Guinness Amplify (who include me) as one of the bands who were given recording time.

I introduced the music of Algiers, an Atlanta “doom soul trio” here three years ago but the band went very quiet after that initial appearance. Glad to hear then that the band are back and about to release an album on Matador Records in June and that they’ve re-recorded the song ‘Blood’ that got my… Read more »

William Arcane is an English producer who has received plays from Jamie xx and supported Glass Animals most recently. Last year he threw out all his computer synth plugins and went analogue with real synthesizers and re-sampled acoustic sounds.

Four-Tet

Four Tet’s shelved remix of Coldplay’s ‘Fix You’ wasn’t heard publicly until last week when Four Tet joined Jon Hopkins and played it on his BBC Radio One residency. Which is a pity, as Kieran Hebden’s reworking really amped up the sentiment of the original, with a lullaby-style bells and tones backing to Chris Martin’s… Read more »
