Kyp Malone’s much anticipated solo album Rain Machine was released last September on Anti-records.

The provocative album art, created by Malone himself, is an appropriate indicator of the unique and defiantly personal music within. Rain Machine features ten unflinchingly original and emotional songs mixing elements of modern jazz, blue-grass and blistering guitar driven rock into a refreshing new sound.

As singer and guitarist for celebrated band TV on the Radio, Malone proved himself both a captivating and delightfully unpredictable musical force. On Rain Machine, he shows himself a singer and a lyricist of startling talents. Malone recently described Rain Machine as “a nearly full spectrum of frequencies audible to the human ear, a reflection of a variety of emotions and situations real and imagined – some rhythm some rhyme.”

James Vincent McMorrow is quickly establishing himself as a must see artist. With the release of his debut album at the end of the February, James played to a sell out crowd at the Sugar Club in March and has been touring the country in support of his acclaimed solo LP. Recorded in an isolated house by the sea, Early in the Morning is a completely self-produced and self played affair. It was recorded with one mic, a room full of beat up instruments, very little engineering knowledge, and a good amount of patience.

His song We Don’t Eat has just been included on One Tree Hill series, and the track Follow You Down To The Red Oak Tree can be heard on the current TV campaign for children’s charity Barnardos.

Tickets for Rain Machine with special guests James Vincent McMorrow are on sale now priced €18.50 incl. booking fee. They play The Academy on Thursday April 15th.
