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 […]

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 […]

Tobacco – Fucked Up Friends

No Comments 06 February 2010

This album has been out a couple of years now, but it’s only recently I got into Tobacco (via his main project Black Moth Super Rainbow) and got hooked. Like movies and their sequels, it’s rare that a side project proves to be far more interesting than the flagship act, but that’s just what happens […]

White Lies @ Cork Opera House 10/12/09

1 Comment 11 December 2009

Having unfortunately missed Neon Indian and obliged a forgettable set by the Kissaway Trail, Guesslist and co wrangle standing room in a packed Opera House for White Lies. As with Guesslist’s company on the night, many present were curious onlookers availing of a free promotional ticket rather than devoted fans.

U2 @ Croke Park, Dublin 24/7/09

No Comments 27 July 2009

It has been almost eight years since the first – and only – time Guess List has seen U2 live. Then it was September 1, 2001 and an unprecedented second sell out night at Slane Castle. In a little over nine months time Fianna Fail would come within a handful of seats of winning an […]

New musical direction for The Flaming Lips?

1 Comment 24 July 2009

A couple of takes from The Flaming Lips forthcoming double album Embryonic have surfaced online. Convinced of the Hex and Silver Trembling Hands sound very promising; strange, atmospheric, and most importantly completely different to expectations. It’s been 10 years since The Soft Bulletin saw The Flaming Lips evolve from the fearless freaks of the underground […]

Guess List at Oxegen 2009

1 Comment 13 July 2009

Due to a combination of logistical and financial disasters, our Oxegen experience is limited to the 3rd and final day of the festival. We’ve missed out on a load of great bands and lot of rain – arriving into a muddy Punchestown feels like being sent to man the trenches. Reports from Friday and Saturday […]

The Prodigy @ The Marquee, Cork

2 Comments 19 June 2009

It was somewhat fortuitously and very much at the last minute that Guess List headed to Cork’s docklands to see The Prodigy open the Marquee summer shows in the rebel county. En route we took in the split demographic who shell out to see Liam Howlett and co; on the one hand there are the […]

Primavera Sound 2009: Day 3

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 […]
