Just this week, Hana Elion & JJ Mitchell moved to Dublin for the summer, where they will be recording their debut album.

Hebden_Reid-1

Kieran Hebden and jazz drummer Steve Reid had a fortuitous partnership across the generations that allowed the pair to explore new forms in jazz and improvised electronic, not to mention make four albums, three recorded live in a short time period and another Tongues, more of a traditional studio record but not by much.

Jack-Garratt-Tour-Exports-185-DAH

A criticism I levelled at Jack Garratt’s show at The Great Escape, was one of showboating.

After Everything Fall, the Dublin band’s debut album, Come On Live Long released ‘Trough’, an ambient-birthed four minute track that suggested further ambitions. ‘Speak Up’ is similar in that, at seven minutes, it’s a brave length to tackle.
