    VAMPIRE WEEKEND LIVE AT THE LONGITUDE

    NYC's Vampire Weekend have come a long way since forming in 2006. The band delivered album number three ‘Modern Vampires Of The City' earlier this years, and visited Ireland for the Longitude festival.

    This set was recorded at the Longitude festival, Marlay Park, Dublin on Saturday, July 20th.

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: STANO, PEARL JAM, & GLASSER


    As every monstrously large band has experienced; there are as many people that hate Pearl Jam as there are who love them. The Seattle survivors have always managed to deliver strong albums, and ‘Lightening Bolt’ is no exception. Simply put, it’s a strong album from a band that still have a hunger to make music.

    Stano is one of Ireland’s unsung musical heroes (I don’t use that word likely). An artist who’s career has spanned many decades, but is on a steady upward trajectory. ‘Unknown Distance’ is his fourth album in as many years, and one that shows Stano at his creative best.

    Proving that her debut album ‘Ring’ wasn’t some sort of fluke (not that there was ever any doubt that it was), Glasser is back with album number two ‘Interriors’. It’s a wonderful collection of offbeat pop tunes that are going to enchant just about anyone who likes their music slightly off kilter will love this.
