Hazey Haze & mankyy – SHY BOII GETS NO SWEETS

Limerick rapper and producer link up on an album that serves as “a document of life on the outskirts of society in Limerick’s Island Field.” Features Dan Walsh of Fixity and Eilis Mahon (Icebear, Girlfriend).


Love Command 0 – Integration

Jamie of Fight Like Apes & wife Bex’s Italo-disco-influenced debut album is out on famed Italo label Zyx.. Love Command O is a project inspired by a passion for 1980’s Italo Disco, New York Mutant Disco and 1980’s electronic freestyle.

exmagician – Sit Tight

Two members of Belfast band Cashier No.9 – Danny Todd and James Smith released their second album of smart psych indie pop songwriting.


Perry Blake – Death Of A Society Girl

Sligo singer and songwriter marks 26 years as a music artist. Perry has been compared to Scott Walker, Leonard Cohen and David Bowie – but his music is hard to categorise.



Stephen Roddy – Stardust Sonata

Stardust Sonata is both a tribute and lament to David Bowie in ritual ambient form. It was recorded in the winter of 2016 shortly after the release of Blackstar and Bowie’s premature death. The six tracks feature ambient soundscapes driven by electric guitars and occasional electronic elements that rise and fall in a network of interlocking waves.


Cathal Roche – Essential Tremors / Lori Goldston – Convolutions

Two albums of live improvised music on Leitrim’s Nyahh Records.

Cathal plays solo baritone, alto, soprano saxophones. Recorded at St George’s Church and Heritage Centre, Carrick on Shannon, Co Leitrim on 11th of December 2021.

Willie Stewart of Nyahh Records drove her on the tour and recorded each performance. With Lori’s permission, Willie edited and mixed each performance and put them together to make this album. The end result is a collection of improvisations and spontaneous moments.

Both recorded by Willie Stewart.
