On Friday night, Come On Live Long played at a set at the Nialler9/Le Cool Love:Love Music Night in Christ Church Cathedral. The band’s edifying songs filled the vast space with ease. Just two years ago, they were a promising new act with a couple of short EPs showcasing a group with sound ambition. After Friday night, I’d go as far to say as they are one of the best new live bands in Ireland. (more…)
A debut album is still a marker. Of experience, of thirst, of desire, of knowledge and of aspiration. Logikparty have three years of making music as four people together. Their live gigs to date have been visceral and gut-pounding, a heady spiky kraut-punk No Wave display. Assisted late last year in London by producer Alan O’ Connell aka Alalal (producer and engineer on records from Duran Duran to The Rapture to Maximo Park), the band recorded their first album Oh Cult! and their first big milestone.

It’s been a long time coming. Squarehead initially recorded their debut album back in September and December last year with Shane Cullen in K9 Studios and save for a couple of extra tracks and re-recordings of old favourites ‘Mother Nurture’ and ‘Fake Blood,’ the band have patiently been sitting on it since.
Yeah Nothing is a dozen tracks of no-nonsense slacker indie pop, a fuzzy collection of lo-fi rock ‘n’ roll inspired by surf-pop, old school rock ‘n’ roll and bright guitars.
It’s released on Richter Collective digitallyTODAY and physically on September 16th. Pre-orders for Vinyl and CD come with a T-shirt and they will be shipped on September 5th. A launch gig for Yeah Nothing takes place on September 17th in The Workman’s Club with support from Logikparty.
After the new videos and an album livestream from Madison Square Garden center court, Beastie Boys have posted their new album for listening in full on Soundcloud and Youtube. Personally, I love it. It takes elements of their sound from Check Your Head and Ill Communication and mixes it up resulting in a fresh take on the Beasties’ sound.
