No Comments 07 June 2009

The final day of Primavera Sound kicked off in a dehydrated panic after realising we’d slept in. Ponytail are about to play a midday session in the Joan Miro Park, so we dive out of bed and into a taxi. Arriving a couple of songs in, the loveliness of the outdoor setting is very much […]

Primavera Sound 2009: Day 2

1 Comment 06 June 2009

The Spanish sun and too much alcohol takes its toll and we don’t make the festival until Bat For Lashes is finishing what sounded like a decent set. We head over to the ATP stage for some Sleepy Sun, and the San Francisco band’s psych rock is perfect for a sunny billing. Expanding on the […]

9 Comments 03 April 2009

A topic that’s hardly fresh, granted, but it’s interesting to note Sam Smyth’s piece in the Indo on how the Government here have not been claiming tax from visiting acts. Here’s a snippet. Top Irish bands cannot understand why they pay taxes when touring abroad but the Government does not levy taxes on international artists […]

Mogwai @ The Academy

1 Comment 21 March 2009

Mogwai’s weekend residency kicked off last night with a typically enthralling show, both the band and crowd enjoying a set that touched on many corners of the band’s back catalogue. First off; if you’re going to see them tonight or tomorrow, make sure to get there early. The band were onstage by 8.30 and finished […]

No Comments 02 March 2009

This video from last week’s Noise Pop festival in San Francisco is one of the best recordings of Deerhunter that I’ve seen. It sees the band unleash more new material amid songs from Crytograms and Microcastle; all wrapped up in eerie echoes and murky vocal loops… Setlist: Intro (3 mins of Bradford vocal echoes) / […]
