May 24th, 2017 by

Dublin based trio Slouch have previously likened their music to “the sound of gorillas caged in a polystyrene prison cell.” This self-analysis is slightly unfair as their sound is far from personifying primitive tendencies which is demonstrated in their latest release, a double single featuring ‘It’s Not a Man Abandons Post’ and ‘Umbrella On The Empty […]

Toro Y Moi, Kamasi Washington, Le Galaxie & More

April 17th, 2017 by

“Musical criticism is a fictional occupation.” I remember the first time I heard this line from ‘The Basement’ off Kool A.D.’s most recent album, Sky Ladder. It stood out to me because despite spending a lot of my time reviewing albums and live shows it’s still an exercise that, every now and again, perplexes me. […]

Craig David – 3Arena, Dublin

April 13th, 2017 by

Zara Hedderman: 15 years ago, the prospect of going to a Craig David arena concert would not have been such a shocking occurrence. In a short space of time, he released several singles that dominated charts and clubs. Think of ‘Re-Rewind’, ‘What’s Your Flava?’ and ‘7 Days’; songs that proved instant hits. Infectious, if you […]

Clipping, The I.L.Y’s, Blood Orange, Beach Fossils & More

April 9th, 2017 by

In the last two months I have become mildly obsessed with making playlists. This compulsion to accumulate all of my favourite songs that embody a certain emotion was brought about by something that I believed could only be remedied by music. It sounds cheesy and frankly, it is an overwhelmingly emotionally charged playlist that features […]

Danny Brown, Kendrick Lamar, Mac DeMarco & More

April 2nd, 2017 by

Often, a fool is looked upon as someone who is silly. A person not to be taken seriously or that can be serious. We probably all know someone that is instantly recognisable as the messer of the friend group. In a social setting they will make the people around them laugh in an effort to […]
