It’s been over two years since Villagers released Becoming A Jackal, in the interim touring the world and Conor, armed with his trusty guitar, walking every nook and cranny in every city they played. When they tour the new album, due out at the end of this year or early next year, preceded by, in […]

Daaaamn, Monto went away and got himself some heavy beats and some absolute tunes. He’s had a steady stream of tracks incoming on Soundcloud for the last year or so and he seems to have really stepped it up for the Best Boy EP, released via the impressive Melted Music label. I guess the leap […]

Always nice revisiting Slow Place Like Home. Here’s a great video for ‘There Go The Lights Again’, taken from the Donegal artist’s most recent EP of the same name. A slow burning track, the accompanying visuals were created by Jules Hackett and suit the song rather nicely. It’s quite an eerie video too, like watching […]

There’s a nice end-of-summer feel to ‘Airbrushed’, the second track we’ve heard from Dublin artist Feather Beds. I was on a bit of an Animal Collective buzz yesterday, taking in a lot of the early stuff, and Feather Beds doesn’t sound too far removed from the quieter tracks of 2003/5-era AC. The vocals are difficult […]

Back in May we were introduced to the London-born, Dublin-based producer GEM_DOS. The addictive ‘Sand Hands’ mixed slivers of LCD Soundsystem with repeated vocals that sound as exciting on this end of the summer as they did at the start. There have been a few new remixes and mixes put up on GEM_DOS’s Soundcloud over […]

Really nice, simple video to accompany Adrian Crowley’s ‘The Saddest Song’, taken from his sixth (!) album, I See Three Birds Flying. It’s subtle, touching on something Feel Good Lost might come up with. The album is out on September 14 on Chemikal Underground. Pre-order it here.

Dublin duo Forrests have been making all the right sounds lately. Well, they made one great sound in the form of ‘Billions‘, a stunning three minutes of effervescent noises pulled together to blow you away. They’ve been announced for Electric Picnic and for Hard Working Class Heroes in October. Forrests are a sideproject of Channel […]

I was on holiday last week (Edinburgh, thanks for asking) so missed what I assume was the entire internet salivating on their keyboards over a new track from Egyptian Hip Hop. The hype around them a few years back was obviously a bit too much and it’s been a while since we’ve heard any new […]

The infectious ‘All Of It’s Yours’ gets a cool claymation video. It looks like something from the Morbegs. The video was produced, directed and edited by Fiona Coleman and Enette Ngoei. It features on Waterford artist the Casanova Wave‘s debut album Joy Of Being, which you can hear after the jump.
