Playing tracks by
Mumblin Deaf Ro, Rozi Plain, Jon DeRosa, B. Fleischmann, Melody's Echo Chamber and more.
A few new albums in this week and we played a couple on the show. Wires Under Tension graced us with a brilliant, frantic, brass-laden instrumental - B. Fleischmann's album is called I'm not ready for the grave yet and he chipped in with Don't follow, a meaty, polyphonic backbeat boasting a wonderfully downbeat vocal. Mumblin' Deaf Ro was back with the absolute heartbreak and class of Little mite, Jon DeRosa's baritone made a welcome return too, Roll the Dice meets Pole, Sone Institute, Rozi Plain's compelling choral dynamics, and the irresistible dream pop of Melody's Echo Chamber. Richard Hawley and Susanna both play Cork soon (I can't wait), and Dublin duo Thread Pulls show how much drama you can wring out of a drum set and a bass (some electronics too, in fairness). And The River Fane (pictured), the most sublime distillation of the best bits of The Beach Boys, which is no disservice to its gorgeousness.
