Cork/Sheffield/Leeds pop-punk/math-rock trio Ganglions are playing a few dates around Ireland this week – they’ve played Cork before, including at Quarter Block Party earlier this year, but this is their first proper tour, with dates coming up around England too. It’s all in support of their second EP, Thirsty, released on the Audacious Art Experiment. […]

Dublin trio the Dudley Corporation release their fourth album on May 11, and their first in almost five years, and below is the nearly five-minute title track and album closer ‘Everyone Does Everything Wrong Part II’. It’s the longest song on the album – by about a minute – but it’s one that you won’t […]

Mixed bag of news for Windings fans fans this morning. First, a new song accompanied by a video. There are at least 10 different ways to watch the stars in squares type video for ‘The Hassle’. I can’t take my eyes off the cowbell square. Yes, that’s right, there is cowbell in ‘The Hassle’, which […]

Crayonsmith are one of my favourite Irish bands, mainly due to the near perfection of previous album, White Wonder. But that was over three years ago. So to say I was pleased to hear they finally had new material would be an understatement. ‘Heaven In An Aeroplane’ is one half of a split-single with Cork […]

On listening to Burials, the debut album from Dublin/Meath trio the Ambience Affair, the most striking thing is the power of singer Jamie Clarke’s voice. Take the opening track ‘Weeds’: it constantly evolves, growing in stature to the point where Clarke spits out the chorus, “And I’ll wait in my bed,” with such ferocity that […]

I missed this when it came out last month because I was on holiday; Munich and Berlin, since you ask. Milan Jay are one of my favourite Irish bands and have featured on The Point of Everything a few times over the past year. What I like about them is that no song sounds the […]

I have been meaning to write about Come On Live Long and their new EP Mender for at least two weeks now. I haven’t because the music is simply so exciting that I forget to write down words to try and describe it. First the preamble: Come On Live Long are a five-piece band from […]

Two remixes and a new track comprise A Lazurus Soul’s new, free EP Dublin Gold Exchange. Harmless Noise pointed out yesterday that the three-track release went up over the weekend to little fanfare, which is in keeping with the band’s career to date. They’ve never really gained the heights they deserved. But fans that do […]

This is really cool. Squarehead and Patrick Kelleher got together to release a double A-side single. I got slightly confused trying to explain the idea behind it, but Harmless Noise says what I couldn’t. ‘Attention To Detail’ is Squarehead taking on a Kelleher-type recording and ‘Just A Tragedy’ is Kelleher apeing Squarehead. The latter could […]

“Dublin guitar loudness 4 piece. Strictly no keyboards. And a touch of vocal.” That’s Bouts’s blurb, and the band sticks to the mantra for their self-titled second EP. You’ll know from the first riff on opening track ‘We Tried’ (the video of which is above) if Bouts are the band for you. They remind me […]
