In this week’s Day And Night Column, in between Marion Cotillard’s Forehead Tittaes and the usual video, sites and links roundup, I’ve written a feature on the 10 Irish music blogs you should check out (myself excluded). I tried to get a good mix in there from indie to electronic to pop to mainstream so don’t come crying to me if you’re not listed :)
Also, as you’re probably aware from the amount of SXSW things around here this past week, I was in Texas at the South by SouthWest festival having an awesome and amazing time seeing about 50 bands in 4 days. I have written a cover story in Day and Night about the 15 bands to check out as a result (plus a short but on how two of the Irish bands got on).
Read it in the Irish Independent today or online.
