    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: TINARIWEN, THE REVELLIONS, BROKEN BELLS

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: TINARIWEN, THE REVELLIONS, BROKEN BELLS

    ‘Emmaar’ is album number six from Mali’s Tinariwen, and continues from where they left off with 2011’s ‘Tassili’. The desert blues sound still has echoes of Hendrix in parts, and remains adventurous and hypnotic throughout. A special album from a band that have had to endure more than many others can comprehend. Clocking in at 38 minutes, The Revellions bring us ‘Give It Time’. These guys don’t hang about as you might gather; they bring us an avalanche of guitars and attitude. This description has been used many times before, but it really fits here. Dublin residents may recognise the ...

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – SWORDS, & STRUMPETS

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – SWORDS, & STRUMPETS

    ‘Lions & Gold’ is the debut album from Swords. In the short period of time that it’s been out, it has won the band much acclaim and favour. They manage to mix a number of different sounds in a way that sounds cohesive, which isn’t as straightforward as you might thing. ‘Lions & Gold’ is an album with light and shade in correct measure. Any band described as “Belgian/Argentinean psychedelic dadist pop” are worth a look! The Antwerp-based Strumpets have been doing their off-beat thing since 2007; ‘Rubies & Ruffians’ is their second album. The album comes to us after ...

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK - SNOW GHOSTS, COME ON LIVE LONG, & CONGO NATTY

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK - SNOW GHOSTS, COME ON LIVE LONG, & CONGO NATTY

    Sophisticated and folkie are often misleading descriptions, but they go some way to sum up part of what Snow Ghosts have created on 'A Small Murmuration'. At times ethereal, Snow Ghosts have brought us an album to cherish. Add ‘Everything Fall’ by Come On Live Long to the list of strong Irish debut album released this year. You can really see this album being embraced by many; the reference points are far and wide, mixed with a strong identity of its own. Congo Natty is one of the many guises of Michael West, although you may know him best for ...

    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 ...

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – LITTLE GREEN CARS, GHOSTPOET, & TIERANNIESAUR

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – LITTLE GREEN CARS, GHOSTPOET, & TIERANNIESAUR

    ‘Absolute Zero’ (out May 10th), the debut album from Little Green Cars was recorded a year ago, so you’d imagine that the band are as happy about its release as the rest of us! As you’d expect, this is a strong debut, which will no doubt help the band with their steady upward trajectory. Ghostpoet’s second album ‘Some Say I So I Say Light’ comes with a weight of expectancy with it. So, does it live up to the hopes, or dare I say it the hype? Yes, absolutely! It sounds slightly slicker than 2011’s ‘Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy ...

    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 ...
