You’ve already got your stage times, your Sunday night afterparty details and presumably, tickets. In addition to all of the regular activity at Forbidden Fruit, here’s a run down of all of the Nialler9-related events happening this weekend. As well as the Forbidden Fruit opening party on Friday night (Win tickets.) and a DJ set in Twisted Pepper on Saturday night at Subject’s 6th Birthday alongside DJ Kormac A/V set, Analogue Cops and more, the big news is Vodafone #centrestage, a Nialler9-curated tent of of talks, interviews and performances on-site in the Vodafone tent on Saturday and Sunday at the festival from 3pm til 8pm each day.
So far it includes interviews with Ghostpoet, Fight Like Apes, Le Galaxie, Everything Everything, Feel Good Lost, Strange Passion, Eoghan Kidney and performances from Daithí and The Mighty Stef with more to come. #centrestage schedule & times →
Monday night, Day 3 of Other Voices and Dingle has lost a lot of weekend out of town visitors to weekday commitments. Those people have left before halftime as there’s still lots of music to be devoured.
With artists travelling from all over the world to the far western tip of the country, it’s Irishman James Vincent McMorrow who has made the most arduous journey from Paris and has arrived within an hour of the recording of his performance. McMorrow, clearly relieved, leads his band of into a beautiful high-pitched harmony-heavy version of ‘Early In the Morning’. McMorrow’s falsetto has been impressing many of late. He’s been inducing strong feelings in audiences all year and the six-strong band do the songs from debut album, also called Early In The Morning considerable justice and then some. St. James Church is a perfect place for his music. Renditions of two new songs ‘Red Dust’ and ‘We Are Ghosts’ leave us with a general feeling that McMorrow is on the cusp of something great. (more…)
James Rutledge returns with another superb rework (he’s done this kind of thing before). Here he turns Everything Everything’s stupidly abbreviated single (original video after the jump) into a post-dubstep (!) Four Tet funk music-box-led remix.

The BBC’s annual poll of most-promising artists arrives around again with an air of inevitability and if you follow blogs and music closely, a sense of deja vu. The longlist was released today with 15 names (with 7 of them having featured here before) and is probably a fairly well-rounded new bands list. Already established artists like Marina and the Diamonds appear with more leftfield choices like Joy Orbison. For an alternative, try Neon Gold’s own list, of which I am digging Freelance Whales at the moment.
