girl band

Clearly releasing one of the best songs this country has produced this year wasn’t enough. Girl Band have followed up their 7-minute abrasive monster with a three minute song called ‘De Bom Bom’ which revels in its slithery industrial rhythm, an effect that comes across like Daft Punk’s ‘Rollin & Scratchin’ made with fingers hurting… Read more »

We’ve had the pulverising polychromatic parade stomp of ‘Big Unit’ and the live favourite ‘Voodoo Vision’, now, ‘World In Harmony’, the latest track from This Is The Third Album Of A Band Called Adebisi Shank out on Sargent House on August 12th, is the closest the band have come to soundtracking a track on Mario… Read more »

As one of the band’s featured in Darren McCreesh’s Irish post-punk compilation Strange Passion, SM Corporation, a band formed by Steve Averill after The Radiators From Space, have had a bit of overdue attention. After the compilation, the band performed with other bands of the era. Now, Averill’s sons, Jon and Gareth are involved in… Read more »

I prefer the low-moving epic sound of Alt-j’s ‘Hunger Of The Pine’ than the spindly rock of ‘Left Hand Free’ (it still sounds like it’s been designed to soundtrack an advertisement). ‘Hunger Of The Pine’ is weighty, defies expectation and samples Miley Cyrus for chrissakes. The video, directed by Nabil, has a similar epicness to… Read more »

From the same Kitty Cash mixtape Love The Free Vol. II that gave us SZA’s new song ‘Mood Ring‘, ‘Move Me’ from Brooklyn trio Wet has some serious seductive indie R&B grooves going on. Kelly Zutrau gives a moving vocal fittingly for the song title and subject matter. The mixtape drops on Monday in full… Read more »

Perfume-Genius

Perfume Genius‘ comeback song ‘Queen’ is a comeback and a retort also to the latent homophobia that still persists in modern society and that Hadreas feels is a type of “gay panic” when people see him on the street. “No family is safe as I sashay” goes the chorus of the song which has a… Read more »

The last we heard of the former singer of Golden Silvers, Gwilym Gold, he had utlitised a new format for music playback called Bronze for his Tender Metal album which subtly changed the arrangements of the songs for each listen. He’s back with a new single out now called ‘Muscle’, like the release’s artwork, it’s… Read more »

23 year-old Irish beat and soundtrack producer Revin Goff, from Galway has been posting songs on Soundcloud for about a year now. They range from the synth-waving clipping track of ‘Genocide City Zone’, the experimental beats of ‘Rain Shrine’, the distorted bedroom hip-hop beats of ‘Endgame’ and the electro-rock of ‘Harlots’. Clearly, there are influences… Read more »

The last time I saw So Cow live, back in November, Brian Kelly said it would be the last gig from them for a while. Presumably because the trio were psyching themselves up (or recording) for their new album The Long Con, the first album from the band not recorded by Kelly on his own,… Read more »
