cove love and work cover

Cove are a three piece from Cashel, Tipperary, who released their debut EP well over a year ago but have taken it pretty easy since, playing sporadic live gigs while recording new music over the past few months. The fruits of their labour are now evident in ‘Love & Work’, a reassuring, dance-infused track that […]

imploded view theres nowhere

Jerome McCormick aka Imploded View is planning a new EP release next month. Entitled Coburn Days, it sees McCormick putting on his platform boots and making a beeline for the LED-coloured dancefloor. ‘Flutter Funk’ was uploaded to Soundcloud a couple of months ago and sees McCormick sidling onto the dancefloor’s fringes, but ‘There’s Nowhere’ sees […]

le galaxie humanise

Le Galaxie‘s MO in life is to get you to dance. “Come with us, do you see the electric light? Come with us and we will dance with the people of light,” they hipshook on ‘Beyond Transworld’, the second track on debut album Laserdisc Nights 2. “Tonight I feel it, tonight I feel we’re working […]

Daithi have to go

As festival season kicks into gear (Electric Picnic announces its lineup tomorrow, Wednesday, at noon; Beck, Portishead and Outkast, anybody? And Indiependence in Mitchelstown, Cork, reveals its first names on Thursday evening), you can almost hear Daithí packing his violin, synths and wellies readying for a busy few months. Because rest assured, he will probably […]

ships space inside cover

Despite a few mixes and remixes over the past 12 months or so, I don’t think Dublin duo Ships have released new music since ‘Places‘ well over a year ago. (One half of the band, Simon Cullen, is Lasertom, who released one of my favourite albums last year.) But they’re been busy in the studio […]

new jackson satisfaction cover

After wowing us with the 10-minute plus ‘Of A Thousand Leaves‘ and remixing TR-One, New Jackson has announced details of his second EP, entitled Made It Mine. The four-track release is out on February 21 via the Munich label Permanent Vacation, which is home to the likes of Mano Le Tough and John Talabot and […]

replete EP cover

Kilkenny producer Peter Lawlor is Replete and has signed to the Northern Ireland label Champion Sound, home to the so-hot-at-the-moment UNKNWN, for his next release, the Hold Me EP. It’s out on March 4 and sees Lawlor go in a different direction than I was expecting. I thought he might veer into the deeper, darker […]

I still don’t think I’ve fully wrapped my head around New Jackson‘s last release, the 10-minute-long ‘Of A Thousand Leaves‘. But David Kitt has got his hands on Tr One‘s ‘Viceroy-9c’ and made it a little more subtle and atmospheric, though it still most certainly belongs in the genre of house. The remix features on […]

lumigraph cover

Lumigraph must’ve been a seafaring man in a former life: he released an album entitled Nautically inclined on Opal Tapes earlier this year and is following that up with the Yacht Cruiser EP on Brooklyn’s Mister Saturday Night label. Clocking in at over six and a half minutes, Gareth Smyth has created a pretty killer […]

clu jade 2

Dublin producer Clu aka Sean Cooley – who is joined on live duties by Kevin Freeney – has a new track ‘Jade’ featured on a curated compilation for the Chemistry, which arrives on December 8. ‘Jade’ is a strange four and a half minutes, as we listen to a high-pitched germ of an idea slowly […]
