Brid O’Donovan (Facebook | Twitter | Instagram) was back behind the camera for Hard Working Class Heroes last week. Here are her shots from Friday, featuring Pale Rivers, Soule, Jealous of the Bird, Touts, Tara Lee, Talos and Adultrock.


Dublin-based producer Adultrock is readying his first physical release for next week. The Chants EP is coming out on Bodytonic and arrives about two and a half years after Gavin Elsted started uploading his songs to Soundcloud. Comprising three original songs and remixes of the title track from Naum Gabo and Ron Morelli and Svengalisghost […]

Svmmer Svn

The electronic music blog SVNSET WΛVES (must be a fan of Chvrches) uploaded a 36-song compilation to Bandcamp on Friday. Called Svmmer Svn, I’m unfamiliar with most of the artists on the album but there are accompanying blurbs to most here. Thirty-six songs is probably too many tracks for one album – people can barely […]

Body & Soul lineup

The fourth outing of Body & Soul takes place this weekend at Ballinlough Castle, Co Westmeath. You’ve probably heard about the big international artists playing over the three days: James Murphy, Kurt Vile, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, PiL, Charles Bradley, Solange and Jon Hopkins (seriously don’t miss Solange and Jon Hopkins). This is […]

Camden Crawl Dublin took place last weekend, with tonnes of bands playing across 15 venues in the capital. Brid O’Donovan headed up with camera in tow to capture some of the action. After the jump you can see all the action, from Wife in the Village, through what looked like a great show from Sleep […]

Vice spin-off Thump (no, not Thumped) premiered a new track from Gavin ‘Adultrock’ Elsted on Friday evening. He’s certainly good at making connections, considering Annie Mac put up one of his tunes, ‘In The Shade‘, for free download a couple weeks ago. He told Thump about the process behind making ‘Goldwaves’: “I guess I just […]

Gavin ‘Adultrock‘ Elsted had his new track ‘Chants’ premiered by the website Death & Taxes and told them: “I wanted to make the same type of music as I had been making before but with the dancefloor in mind. Teengirl Fantasy and Blondes were the type of things I was listening to at the time.” […]

A lot of people have recommended the Body & Soul festival to me in the past, but I’ve somehow conspired to never get there. This year could be too difficult to resist though. Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds! Kurt Vile! Pantha Du Prince! Solange! Took me a while to stop drooling. Body & Soul […]

The third annual Dirty Weekend at the Pavilion takes place next month. On Friday, February 15, Mmoths is bringing his full band down from Newbridge for the occasion. The band has supported the xx on various dates in the past few weeks and it will be Cork’s first glance of the new-look Mmoths (Jack Colleran […]

I’ve already declared how much I like Adultrock. It’s hard to keep up with him though; as soon as you get familiar with one track – ‘Poplife‘, for example – he’s already put another up on Soundcloud. ‘Sleeper’ is a fast-paced, riotous track that from the 1.25-minute mark, only picks up. It’s going to feature […]
