That’s right, yes indeed, while there may be a veritable articulated truck-load of radio stations already populating the Irish FM and digital airwaves, vying for the attention of your poor, confused and battered ears, that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for one more… does it?
It’s more of what we’ve come to expect from the band, but that’s no bad thing. Looking forward to hearing their new album, Babel, which is released on the 24th September. Here’s Mumford and Sons’ I Will Wait, shot two weeks ago, during the band’s two sold-out shows at the Red Rocks natural amphitheatre in Colorado.
Storyfold have unveiled their latest music video for their brand new single ‘The Sweetest Silence’. Directed by Billy Keane, the video mixes film shot on location at World’s End Studios, Dublin and self-shot videos from the recording of their debut album at Modern World Studios in Tetbury, UK. The Sweetest Silence is the 4th single […]
Well, this video’s alarming. Luckily, the song’s a treat, and it’s all yours. Singer-songwriter Bobby Womack’s been making music since the 1960s. His catalogue spans rock n’ roll to gospel, country to r&b. He’s been inducted in the Rock n’ Roll Hall Of Fame, played guitar for Joe Tex and Aretha Franklin, and wrote songs […]
MOAR IRISH MUSIC! MOAR! One more for the road! Jerome’s Law are an indie-pop band from Dublin whose album Not Today is available (even today) from Bandcamp. For freebies! We do love a good freebie here on Culch, especially when it’s as full of delicious ditties as Not Today, and these boys know how to put a tune together. Both […]
I told you we had a medley of fresh new Irish stuff, didn’t I? Have a sprinkle of this. Kildare’s Valentine Black released debut album Desire Lines on Valentine’s Day, because like our John, he loves it when a plan comes together. With a more than a dash of Springsteen in these songs about love, loss, and post-Tiger Ireland, Valentine […]
♫ Hungry ears/one look at you and we can’t help but leer at your/Hungry ears… ♫ Ok, so our profound lack of lyrical dexterity is why us Culchies never quite took off as a travelling minstrel show. We’ve accepted this, so instead we’re happy to sate your aural appetite by bigging up the musical talents […]
We told you last week that White Rabbits were giving away new single Heavy Metal as a teaser for Milk Famous, the album due this March. Now here’s the video for Heavy Metal, which is creepy and stylish (and also styley and creepish) and complements that durty, durty funk beautifully. Take a look. This is […]
‘Cracked Eggs’, the lead track from upcoming My Best Fiend debut album In Ghostlike Fading, landed in our inbox today like a present. Full of haunting vocals and a punky, melodic sound it has us straining on our pop culture lead for the full album. Go on, have a listen, it’s Tuesday, it’s not like you […]
The video might be a bit dim and vague and hipster-stroking, but the tuneage is as solid as Eamon Gilmore’s bonce. The Sleeping In The Woods EP is out February 13th. Expect big things.
Dedicated readers (hi, Nana!) will remember that The Dying Seconds‘ Glimmerers was one of our Albums Of 2011. You’ve probably bought it already, seeing as Culch’s opinion is a weight around your neck from which not even an iron spine can save you, but just in case, Glimmerers is available digitally – on iTunes – […]
Any dismissal I’ve heard of Delorentos’ charm seems to centre on the undeniable fact that they’re easy to listen to. They’re not challenging. You don’t have to wince through an album twice to “get” them. They don’t grow on you. They are immediately accessible, stirring from the get-go, and joyfully addictive. Anyone who believes this […]
Anyone with ears should cast cheers at The Cast Of Cheers. To borrow a phrase from me nana, The Cast Of Cheers is one of the very few Irish bands that put the heart crossways on me. If I was a mutant I’d give them seven thumbs up.
I do like a bitta Santigold of an unseasonably sweaty winter’s evening. This is crankin’, spankin’ new song Big Mouth. Now that you’ve finished excitedly bopping your nearest neighbour and/or humping the leg of the couch, you can download Big Mouth – for free! – at Santigold.com. Just give the lovely lady your email address […]
I still maintain that Fanfarlo’s “I’m A Pilot” is the most sublime free download on LastFM (you can nab it for yourself here), so my expectations were higher than my Junior Cert art teacher* for the indie-pop darlings’ new song, “Shiny Things“. Expectations, consider yourselves well met. Here’s the perplexingly daft video for Shiny Things. […]
