No Monster Club aka Babby Aherne are taking the Ash route to single releases this year. On the first of every month in 2017 the prolific Dubliner is going to release a new AA-side single as part of the Encyclopedia Project. They’re all going to be free/pay what you want. “As I’ll be utilising an […]

Froh∀nd (or Fro Hand, as we’ll call him from here) is an electronic producer from Dublin. He’s got a couple of tracks on his Soundcloud page and this collaboration with Ciaran from Crayonsmith has me very excited. Built around the increasingly frightening refrain “I don’t want to wait til I’m dead and gone”, ‘Don’t Wait […]

solar bears last to leave

It’s been over a year since Solar Bears released their second album Supermigration. They’re currently writing for their third album, and ‘Last To Leave Morning Dawn’ is a potential taster of what to expect. As is their nature, the duo take us on a journey, even though the track just crosses the three-minute mark. It […]


The Vincent(s) released their debut EP Valley Of The Sun at the tail end of summer. Four tracks long, it’s intense, brash and, thanks to Marcus’s vocals, utterly idiosyncratic. The Cork band are back with a new track, ‘Milk With Tea’, which you can download for free from Soundcloud below. They describe the song as […]

The David Nelligan Thing released an album earlier this year that covered a range of genres. There was little electronica/synth in there though, but he’s rectified the matter with this five-track EP, aptly named Who Is Synthia? Its (almost) title track is the standout of the collection, which is brimming with ideas but never loses […]

Little Xs For Eyes have been busy working on their second album in recent months, the follow-up to SAD, which is almost two years old.

We are releasing free music to promote Ireland’s young and upcoming talent from the dance scene, weather it be disco, techno, house or dubstep, bass or even minimal.” The label has released plenty of singles since […]

Dublin three-piece Sounds of System Breakdown are gearing up for the release of their second album Nomad on Friday week. ‘Neon Contrails’ is the second taster we’ve had of it, following on from ‘Mayfly‘. Clocking in at just over four minutes, it’s an irresistible slice of dance-rock with a woah-oh-oh chorus that you won’t be […]

Two new songs in a week from Dublin duo Last Days Of 1984. We got the Sacred Animals-featuring ‘Aaja’ last week, a late-night slojam that pointed at a darker direction for the pair. But darker for them, after debut album Wake Up To The Waves, would still be bleary happiness for many other bands. ‘Lost […]

Only announced last week, you can now listen to and download Mmoths‘ remixed Diaries EP. I think it’s a really strong release, even if the of the remixes are of the same track; each has its own style. The bar is set high from the outset as Belfast producer Unknown tackles ‘For Her’. Max Cooper […]
