proper micro nv

What with James Blake coming to Dublin this week, it seems apt that Proper Micro NV has unveiled a new single. Blake’s influence looms large over Limerick producer Rory Hall. ‘Flaws’ is the first single from the 21-year-old’s second EP It’s Always Raining, released on December 7. It follows EP1, which came out in June […]

The lineup for Seoda Shows’ summer party in Dolan’s, Limerick, on Saturday, August 23, is pretty great, but the poster takes the event up a notch; it’s wonderful. MynameisJ0hn and God Knows are the big draw, with their live show winning over everybody this summer – hopefully their cancelled Pavilion show in Cork will find […]

The EP that Shannon-based rapper God Knows made with Clare producer MynameisjOhn and Limerick-based Graeme S was one of the best things I heard last year, so you can imagine my excitement about a full-length album, albeit sans Graeme S. We’ve already heard ‘Serious’, a BIG track that’s probably the standout of the 11 songs […]

65daysofstatic played a few dates in Ireland last week, including Dolan’s Warehouse in Limerick on Thursday, January 16, where they were supported by C!ties. The three-piece reformed especially for the support slot as 65days were one of their biggest influences. It was their first gig in about two years so maybe it shouldn’t have been […]

Limerick trio Bleeding Heart Pigeons launched their debut EP, In A Room In Littleton, Colorado, released on Virgin Records, in Whelan’s last night. Three songs long, it references the Columbine school shooting in 1999 and is never anything less than engaging, worrying, but fascinating. I can’t imagine how it was for singer Michael Keating to […]

On Monday, Clare trio C!ties announced they are going to be supporting 65daysofstatic in Dolan’s Warehouse in Limerick on January 16. They last played a show in June 2011, so there’s lots of excitement about this gig. Tickets available here. Eimear O’Donovan asked got Sean Hurson (bass), Eoghan McMahon (guitar) and Ian Malone (drums) together […]

You might remember that Midlake played Live at the Marquee a couple of years back, on a bill that also featured Grizzly Bear, Camera Obscura and what then were fledgling Villagers. The Texan five piece are returning to Cork on Tuesday, August 13, for a date in Cyprus Avenue. It’s been a while since last […]

I’ve been on a Dudley Corporation buzz for the past week since I heard ‘Grey Lights‘, from their forthcoming fourth album Everyone Does Everything Wrong. I bought their last album, 2008’s Year Of The Husband, from Plugd at the weekend, and it probably won’t come off repeat until its follow-up arrives on May 11. Today […]

It’s taken over a year for Cork/Limerick three piece Superblondes to follow up their self-titled three-track debut EP. ‘Kill Some Time’ sticks to the formula of that release though it has much more bite and is more focused. “Oh girl it’s been so long since I felt like I belong,” Eoin Hally sings, before we’re […]

Limerick band Windings are one of my favourite bands. They’ve spent the summer recording their third album, I Am Not The Crow, which is getting a release on Out On A Limb next month, while also slipping in a couple of live dates. I’ve caught them a few times in recent months, and this track […]
