What an incredible treat to begin the year with (we may have been asleep when this was released a week or so ago..ahem). Donal Dineen and Miles O’Reilley (Arbitus Yarns) have turned their couple of pairs of mits to a new audio-visual venture, and just one episode in, it’s shaping up to be something special indeed. This Ain’t No Disco debuted on Christmas Eve, but do watch it now below if you haven’t already, to see the likes of Katie Kim, Lynched’s Radie Peat, Patrick Kelleher, Niwel Tsumbu, and Sunken Foal. The show aims to celebrate the diversity and complex beauty of Ireland’s music scene, while eschewing the kind of middle-of-the-road pish currently, heavily propagated by the majority of national media outlets.
“Live music, visuals, discussion and collaboration are the cornerstones of This Ain’t No Disco.”
So far, so good.
