As per the People’s Republic of Cork forum, the following acts have been announced for Indiependence, which will once again hit Mitchelstown, Co. Cork on the August Bank Holiday weekend:

JapeReverend & The Makers, The Coronas, The Chapters, Delorentos, The Riptide Movement, Adebisi Shank, Codes, FRED, Fish Go Deep, Disconauts, Ghostcat, The Funeral Suits, Yes Cadets, O Emperor, Hoarsebox, The Vital Spark.

Organisers are still in advanced negotiations with two international acts” for headliners.

The mud and accommodation issues experienced by last year’s otherwise excellent weekend will hopefully be sorted as the festival moves to a new 5,000 capacity site. The Main stage is a 3,500 enclosed permanent structure, while stages 2 and 3 are 800 capacity tents, and a smaller ‘village’ tent set up, with a 2 minute walk to the dedicated on site camping area.

Errors – Come Down With Me

0 Comments 18 March 2010

Errors - Come Down With Me

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 pop melodies. When so many most instrumental bands seem obsessed with gloom and introspection, it’s relief to have the likes of Errors around.

The album does stifle a bit during slower moments; when the pace lessens and the layers are stripped away, there’s nothing going on that hasn’t been done better by others (our own Halfset spring to mind). Overall, Come Down With Me is a triumph, mixing lush, organic sounds with bouncy, mechanical kraut leanings.

Errors – Bridge or Cloud

Errors play in Dublin’s “Academy 2 bar” (to try and call it a venue would be too kind…) next Thursday 25th March – their first show over here since they supported label-mates/mentors Mogwai at the Button Factory in 2006.

Grizzly Bear and Midlake for The Marquee

1 Comment 15 March 2010

Correction city, population me.

Anyway – the real deal is Grizzly Bear, Midlake, Camera Obscura and Villagers will play d’Marquee on Friday June 25. Tickets are great value at €35 and go on sale this Friday, March 19 at 9am.

The whole shindig is a part of a new joint venture between Aiken Promotions and notes a rare foray into the Peoples Republic for Foggy Notions.

Promoters will see how ‘Harmonic’ goes with a view to growing the brand.

Interestingly the press release notes that this will be Grizzly Bear’s only Irish date of 2010, so no Electric Picnic for them this year.

For full details on what is without doubt the best line up ever hosted at the Marquee, go to www.harmonic.ie from 10am tomorrow, Tuesday March 16.

Picastro coming to Ireland

Picastro coming to Ireland

0 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.

Their music typically centres around strings and sparse guitar work set to low tempo cymbal-rich drumming paving way to Liz Hysen lamenting vocals.

Picastro – Pig & Sucker

The live one-two of Picastro and Adrian Crowley is one I’ll be hoping to catch. The gigs are on in Whelan’s on March 26, on Sherkin Island off the coast of Cork in the Jolly Roger on the 27th and an appearance in the Crane Lane Theatre in Cork city on the 28th.
