    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – LUCIUS, VERSECHORUSVERSE, & REAL ESTATE

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – LUCIUS, VERSECHORUSVERSE, & REAL ESTATE

    After receiving much love in the U.S last year, 'Wildewoman' by Lucius is getting a European release. Is it hype or is this a special album? Simply put, 'Wildewoman' is a beauty! It's clever, it's catchy, it's retrospective, it's new, and it may well be one of the albums of 2014. http://www.ilovelucius.com/ He used to be in And So I watch You From Afar, but Tony Wright (aka VerseChorusVerse) is walking a different path now. His debut album 'VerseChorusVerse' couldn't be more different from the thunderous beauty of ASIWYFA, but has its own magnetic identity that will spread far and ...

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: MY SAD CAPTAIN, NENEH CHERRY, & WILD BEASTS

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: MY SAD CAPTAIN, NENEH CHERRY, & WILD BEASTS

    There is a temptation to call 'Best Of Times' an album to listen to in the small hours; those quiet times when you ever vocal phrasing, every guitar chord. What My Sad Captains have come up with on this their third album is a laid back yet confident sound.  There's a strong chance that the masses may miss this, but for those who take the time to listen; they'll hear some truly inspired and brilliant songs. http://www.mysadcaptains.co.uk/ NENEH CHERRY ‘BLANK PROJECT’ Dismiss Neneh Cherry at your peril! ‘Blank Project’ is one of the strongest albums that 2014 has seen so ...

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – HOUSE OF COSY CUSHIONS, ILLUM SPHERE, & SCARLET CHIVES

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – HOUSE OF COSY CUSHIONS, ILLUM SPHERE, & SCARLET CHIVES

    The Dutch/Irish connection of House Of Cosy Cushions has come up with another strong album with ‘Spell’. HOCC was formed by Dutch-English musician and visual artist Richard Bolhuis. So where does the Irish connection come into it? Bolhuis lived in Ireland for many years, and will be back for live dates next month. ‘Spell’ is HOCC’s best work; diverse, clever, and extremely infectious. Illum Sphere is Manchester DJ/Remixer/Artist Ryan Hunn. The wonderfully off-kilter ‘Ghosts Of Then And Now’ is like a bold middle-fingered salute to a lot of what’s going on in music right now. It’s electronic eclecticism at its ...

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – NO CEREMONY///, HIDDEN HIGHWAYS, & MARK LANEGAN

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – NO CEREMONY///, HIDDEN HIGHWAYS, & MARK LANEGAN

    After a string of impressive singles (and excellent Electric Picnic performance), NO CEREMONY/// bring us their debut album. ‘NO CEREMONY///’ is a really strong collection of Pop tunes with what you might call a twist. Enlisting artists like James Vincent McMorrow, and Joey Santiago (of Pixies) makes this an even more interesting experience.There are many good things that you could say about ‘Old Hearts Reborn’ from Hidden Highway; it’s honest, it’s heartfelt, and beautifully crafted. Stand-out tracks here are ‘The World Began With A Waltz’ and ‘Wild Woe’, but you get the impression that the others will grow on you ...

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – PRIMAL SCREAM, ENEMIES, & THE CHILD OF LOV

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – PRIMAL SCREAM, ENEMIES, & THE CHILD OF LOV

    We’ve three gems for you this week, the debut album from The Child Of Love, Enemies’ second long player, and Primal Scream’s tenth studio album. Even getting to the stage where you’re released ten albums is a major achievement these days. ‘More Light’ is strong album, mixing the band’s electronic side with their retro tendencies. ‘Embark, Embrace’ finds Enemies in buoyant form, adding vocals to their mix. If you like their previous album ‘We’ve Been Talking’, you’ll be into this. It’s almost three years since they released their debut, and ‘Embark, Embrace’ sees them making a considerable jump forward. The ...

    Solar Bears are back with their second album ‘Supermigration’, the long awaited follow-up to 2010's ‘She Was Coloured In’. If you were into the debut, ‘Supermigration’ will put a semi-permanent smile on your face! To launch the album, they make a rare live appearance at The Button Factory on Friday, April 26 with a full live band. Phoenix have been building their following over the past few years, converting the masses to their kind of alt-pop. ‘Bankrupt!’ doesn’t stray too far from what they’ve been bring us to-date. They’ll be one of the acts that visit Ireland for the Longitude ...

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – YEAH YEAH YEAHS, FALLEN RULE, & KURT VILE

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – YEAH YEAH YEAHS, FALLEN RULE, & KURT VILE

    We have three Albums Of The Week for your listening pleasure. ‘Mosquito’ is the latest album from Yeah Yeah Yeahs. To say that this has been eagerly anticipated might just be an understatement! ‘No Way To Know Why’ is Fallen Rule’s debut album. In the truest sense of the description, this is an album that encompasses the spirit of acts like Jesus & Mary Chain, MC5, and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. There is a familiar sound from Kurt Vile’s album ‘Wakin On A Pretty Daze’. This isn’t a criticism, quite the contrary! This is an album that may stick with ...
