I find a lot of my new music through bands I already follow. I also find this new music in places I would have turned against in the past such as Spotify and Instagram. Before, I would have really only bought new music if I had heard a song I liked or if a bandContinue reading “Angel Olsen-My Woman”
Throwing it way back to an early Damien Rice track for our Track Of The Week. Appearing on a B-Sides record, ‘Woman Like A Man’ is a prime example of Rice’s raw lyrics and his take on the relationship between men and women. Check out the song below!
I’ve never hidden my love for Sonic Youth and recently they’re all I can listen to. ‘Goo’ in particular is a record I keep going over, and it’s the opening track, ‘Dirty Boots’ that is our TOTW. A little more subtle than what fans of Sonic Youth were used to at the time, but stillContinue reading “TOTW-Sonic Youth-Dirty Boots”
Laura Ann Brady is one of Ireland’s most refreshing talents and funnily enough, an old friend. I’ve picked up on her music recently again and I’d like to talk about her new release, ‘Lie’. I’ve had it on repeat lately and I’m telling you about it because you simply have to take 6 little minutesContinue reading “Laura Ann Brady-Lie”
You know that painful search for new music everyone goes through? You’re tired of your current Playlist or constantly dropping back into an old album again and you need something fresh. This happens to me ALL.THE.TIME. I love an album for a month or two and then I don’t find anything new within it, andContinue reading “Shag Haired Villains – There Is A Noise”
A song I’ve fallen for once again and perfectly suited to this glorious November morning. A little bit of an oldie by now, but always brilliant. The TOTW, Heyday by Mic Christopher.
“It’s songs for the deaf, you can’t even hear it”. ‘Songs For The Deaf’, is QOTSA third album. Released in 2002, I didn’t hear it in it’s entirety until 2008, which is crazy. It’s a loose concept album built around the story of someone taking a drive from LA to Joshua Tree. They tune inContinue reading “Queens Of The Stone Age – Songs For The Deaf”
‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late‘ is the fourth mixtape by Drake. We all know who Drake is in 2017 but it was this record that brought him to my attention in 2015. I hadn’t been a fan of his previous records apart from a few tracks, but when I heard ‘Energy’, the secondContinue reading “Drake – If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late”
The Killers first record in 5 years and the first record of their’s I’ve bought in 9 years. Where the heck does the time go? I did a little research on the album the day it came out on Spotify and through that first brief listen I thought it might be worth picking up. MyContinue reading “The Killers – Wonderful Wonderful”
It’s finally here!! All is well in this world again with the release of The Nationals seventh album ‘Sleep Well Beast’. It’s been four years since ‘Trouble Will Find Me‘ and on first appearances, the wait is worth it. Four singles preceded the release of the album, the best in my opinion being ‘Carin InContinue reading “The National – Sleep Well Beast”
