We’re a bit partial to the weird and wonderful from time to time, so it was a treat to find this little slice of alt-pop nestled in the inbox. ‘Fish Eye’ sees Cristobal and the Sea team up with director Elliott Arndt to create the accompanying video; an oddity of bizarre narratives that seems to […]

October 1st, 2015 by


Making WAVES (sorry..) with latest album Getting Through, The Riptide Movement are wasting no time in cementing their status as one of the most compelling rock bands of the moment.

Jape set for Vicar Street in December

October 1st, 2015 by


We absolutely loved Richie Egan’s and co.’s latest album The Chemical Sea, and it’s fair to say that anybody who may have came across it did too. His live shows are full of wit, charm and so creatively immersive, those who saw Jape at Electric Picnic undoubtedly had a fine ol’ time too. If you missed it, fear not, […]

Get set for K-X-P at Whelan’s

September 29th, 2015 by


Finnish outfit K-X-P aren’t easy to put into a box. Rather, their blend of kraut, rock, noise and electronica offers the listener a transcendental and hypnotic excursion from monotony, often jarringly so. Playing Whelan’s tomorrow night, September 30th, the Helsinki psychedelics have the support of Dublin’s Twinkranes – an equally immersive live act. Tickets for the show […]
