Ryan Adams-1989

Now, I’m a fan of Ryan Adams. I think he’s done some great work, a mix of country, rock, and heartbreak. He has a fantastic amount of work done which is something no one can take away. He’s been in two bands which have also released material. He’s been through some shit too and comeContinue reading “Ryan Adams-1989”

Sonic Youth-Sister

  Noise, YEAH. Art rock, AWW YEAH. Distortion, FUCK YEAH. “Her brother said she’s just a bitch”, wait, what? Sonic Youth have quickly become one of my all time favourite bands. I hate to say it but they’re cool as fuck, and that’s a big part of why I like them. Every record has aContinue reading “Sonic Youth-Sister”

The xx- Berlin 25.02.17

When my girlfriend and I heard The xx had a new tour coming up to support the release of ‘I See You‘, we couldn’t wait to get our hands on some tickets. Trouble was, they didn’t announce an Irish gig (sad face). However, that wasn’t going to stop us and the chance to travel and […]

Joy Division- Unknown Pleasures

Joy Division’s debut ‘Unknown Pleasures‘ is regarded by some as one of the best albums ever released.  When I first heard it I was in awe of the sound and feel of the album largely down to Ian Curtis presence. I was brought to the album through comparisons people had made between the music ofContinue reading “Joy Division- Unknown Pleasures”

John Grant-Queen Of Denmark

John Grant is one of those artists who can pull off almost anything. His album ‘Queen Of Denmark’ consists of songs filled with humour, relationship break ups, religion and general life issues.  A collaboration with the band Midlake, its pop, synth-pop, folk and electronic. He also showcases his skills on the piano in most tracks.Continue reading “John Grant-Queen Of Denmark”

Glass Animals-Zaba

‘Zaba‘ is the debut album by English band Glass Animals released in 2014. I hadn’t heard of them until I came home last summer and a few friends were raving on about them. So what’s all the fuss about? A strange mix of hip-hop beats, jungle sounds and alt/indie rock makes up the album. It’sContinue reading “Glass Animals-Zaba”

Mac DeMarco-2

Mac DeMarco’s ‘2′ is one of the most chilled albums I have. It sounds like he put minimal effort into it but still ended up with a pretty good record. Obviously, he put in the effort as it was his debut record but I’m just talking about the overall feel. This is the first DeMarcoContinue reading “Mac DeMarco-2”

Best Coast- Fade Away

I had only heard Best Coast’s debut, ‘Crazy For You’ because it somehow ended up on my laptop. I liked a few tracks off it like ‘Boyfriend’ and ‘I Want To’, and I dug the whole surf/dream pop thing. What stood out though were the lyrics, which I thought were as predictable as water being wet.Continue reading “Best Coast- Fade Away”

Editors-The Back Room

‘The Back Room‘ is the debut album by English post-punk/rock band Editors. It was actually the second Editors album I bought because I only heard of them when ‘An End Has A Start‘ came out. I actually prefer this one to their second effort as it was a little more dark and and also slightlyContinue reading “Editors-The Back Room”

Track Of The Week-Savages-Adore

I bought Savages second album ‘Adore Life‘ a week ago and I can’t stop listening to ‘Adore’. I liked their first album, but I love this second effort. Have a listen to ‘Adore’ below.
