Playing tracks by
Cocteau Twins, Elephant, SlowPlaceLikeHome, Brous, Garret Baker & The Random Nouns and more.
I was reminded of Heaven or Las Vegas recently so felt like pulling it out for some classic Cocteau Twins from 1990. It never gets old.
Elephant are responsible for an alluring modern brand of dream pop, love that too. SlowPlaceLikeHome from Donegal plays Cork soon; Cork band The Shaker Hymn tour the country on the back of their really good debut single; This Is The Kit are on tour with The National; Colleen too is in Cork, as are Dott ahead of their debut album.
Dan Haywood with some intoxicating pastoral folk songs, The Doomed Bird of Providence with another set of deeply affecting folk songs around the Australian colonial experience.
Satelliti, loving them, fractured jazz meets math rock. (The) Caseworker making more beautiful minimal drone rock.
And Brous back again, I can't get enough of her joie de vivre, soaring melodies and bonkers arrangements.
