‘Total Life Forever’ is English band Foals second album released in 2010. The band said that the album’s sound can be described as “the dream of an eagle dying“. Oook then, no drugs involved here.

‘Elephant’, released in 2003 by The White Stripes is in the Top 10 best records of the last 15 years. No doubt. Their previous album ‘White Blood Cells‘ had brought them mainstream success on a smaller scale and set them up for bigger things.

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”
This weeks track of the week is The Nationals cover of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Mansion On The Hill’, from ‘The Virginia EP‘. Enjoy!
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 […]
