A couple of weeks ago the ’80s feel of ‘Ice Field’ marked that change. It’s further reinforced by ‘Bodies’, track two on the… Read more »

‘Deep Down South’ they love to party. So say Stevie G and his Cork cohort Christiana Underwood. They’ve already recorded those sentiments so now, with the help of Feel Good Lost, they’ve demonstrated it too with a new video show in Fitzgerald’s Park, Cork. The track is out now digitally but on old-school vinyl next… Read more »

Watch James Vincent McMorrow’s pretty light show new video

Lovely video utilising the lights used on the Post-Tropical tour, directed by Emma J Doyle. I made this video because I wanted to capture on camera the lights and 3D mapping we’ve created to use on tour. The song is one of my favourites to play off of Post Tropical, I chose it because I… Read more »

Planet Parade continue their impressive song resurgence with their first single proper – a shadowy night-time grower of ‘You’ll Be Sorry’. While they first appeared in 2009 as a much more indie-rock affair, Michael Hopkins & Andrew Lloyd have spent four years working on their music, and have come up with a more nuanced mature… Read more »

The Hard Ground are about to release the second of three EPs in their Triptych series which will be eventually released as their second album. The Irish band (Marlene Enright, Pat Carey, Dave Duffy, Davy Ryan and Hugh Dillon) describe themselves as a “roots-rock” band, not something I’d normally be into, hence, why I wasn’t… Read more »

El-P and Killer Mike tease their hefty hip-hop followup album RTJ2 with ‘Oh My Darling Don’t Cry’, a bass-booming track which rather than utilising vinyl cutups and effects features the voice artist Michael Winslow doing it for them. These guys are just the best at making pure rap tracks. The track is a free download… Read more »

1. The 2 Bears – ‘Not This Time’ With every release Joe Goddard shows he has the smarts but thus far, his project with Raf Rundell was either great or a bit cheesy as it hopped from genre to genre in search of something elusive. But the new single ‘Not This Time’, from the second… Read more »
