The latest batch of tracks as part of a new collaboration with New Irish Music.
Over the past few months they’ve taken on the admirable role of using facebook as a platform for new Irish artists to gain an audience and below is the crème de la crème of this week, with 7 artists nominated for Track of the Week.
Kafanha – ‘Sept Piece (Two Good for an Encore)‘
Kilkenny based Kafanha describe themselves as ‘two guys sitting in a room with a variety of instruments and a need to create music’ and the result is an original, husky toned number with strands of Tom Waits present.
The Heads of State – ‘Chasing Them Down’
An undeniably catchy summery-acoustic fusion from this Donegal based outfits debut EP.
Rooftop Anthem – ‘Suzie’
Polished sing-along anthem from this five-piece Dublin based outfit who have already racked up sold out dates in the Academy 2.
Tin Pot Operation – ‘Black Eye‘
Politically charged indie-punk from a Belfast band who have been doing the round since 2004 and have supported Aslan and Duke Special along the way.
The Cujo Family – ‘Fool I’ve Been‘
Sprightly folk ballad from this sprawling 7 piece. Their self titled debut album is now available for download.
Ham Sandwich – ‘Ants’
Brilliant new video for a highlight from last years acclaimed ‘White Fox’ LP, which was unlucky to miss out on a Choice nomination.
Baker Jnr – ‘Hughie’ (Live)
Another acoustic ballad from Dublin based singer-songwriter Andy Sheridan who has an ear for a melody and a penchant for meaningful lyrics. Also featured on last week’s STL Listening Post.
