Tame Impala – Innerspeaker

No Comments 09 May 2010

Really liking what I’ve heard of Tame Impala, a bunch of sun-soaked psych rockers from Perth, Australia. They’ve put out a couple of 7”s and are set to release their debut album Innerspeaker in a couple of weeks – I’ve a feeling I’ll be listening to this a lot over the coming summer. Their grasp […]

The Books – Beautiful People

No Comments 27 April 2010

Ugly artwork aside, I’m very excited at the prospect of new music from The Books – the duo have been making odd, fascinating music for awhile now and I’ve no doubt that new album The Way Out (due July) will be no exception. Their mix of classical, folk and glitchy sounds creates a gorgeous musical setting […]

Errors – Come Down With Me

No Comments 18 March 2010

One of my favorite album of late is Come Down With Me, the sophomore record from Glasgow’s Errors. Since their early EPs, they’ve always had a distinctive sound; but never as fully focused as in these new songs. The first half of CDWM is full of well-honed, well executed ideas – glitchy, cheerful guitar lines and synth driven […]

Picastro coming to Ireland

No Comments 24 February 2010

Canadian ambient quartet Picastro come to Ireland next month, touring with Adrian Crowley. Their sleepy but raw atmospheric sound will appeal to fans of Owen Pallett (who has collaborated with the group in the past), and their three LPs prior to this year’s ‘Become Secret’ are all available on Spotify.

At Last An Atlas – From Which We Were Raised

1 Comment 09 February 2010

From Which We Were Raised is the first full album from Dubliner Greg O’Brien, who takes us through his memoirs equipped with guitar, drum machines, synth and organ sounds. It’s an endearing mix of folk and electronica, O’Brien’s almost-spoken vocals are full of melancholy, spread over stark programmed beats reminiscent of the likes of Casiotone for […]
