A music blog from Ireland.
A few weeks ago, I outlined the basis of my friendship with Ruairi Hickson…in this post, I need only recite the tracklisting of his newest Talk To Strangers podcast and you’ll understand. Ru shares his hosting when I need to link an mp3 so some of these tracks will sound familiar…they’re the latest tunes that make our local buzz so winning:
Talk To Strangers – 09.02.10
Beastmen – Clatty – Cork-based band make instrumental songs without the killing
BATS – Shadow Fucking – Undoubtably the best lyrics of 2009
Hoarsebox – Work Party – new single from the capital popstars
Owensie – The Search – new material shows a delightful change of direction
Funeral Suits – Now We’re Moving, Now We’re Free – a pop-tonic
Logikparty – Iodine – “Jerky” and “scary” and pure HEFT.
Autumn Owls – Raindrops In The River – seasonal whimsy from the Owls
I’ll Eat Your Face – I Have A Wolf On My Head -masters of grind, the Face will ate ya.
BCLB – It’s Pretty Much Over Already – remembering the magic of football bands
Drunken Boat – Unwelcome Guest – winding down on the delightful opener from the ‘Boat’s new album, Plumb The Depths.
