|We Cut Corners|
The latest batch of tracks as part of a new collaboration with New Irish Music. Below is the crème de la crème of this week, with 7 artists nominated for Track of the Week.
The winner will be announced on STL over the weekend.
The Revellions – ‘Sigh’s’
Swinging 60s-esque track from these Dublin rockers, backed with footage from their recent tour in France. The four-piece have been doing the round since 2006, and released their eponymous debut album in 2008.
We Cut Corners – ‘Dumb Blonde’
Stripped down acoustic piece with soaring vocals from the guitar/drums duo. The pair recently performed as part of the The Certain Three tour and, would you believe, are both teachers by day (fact of the day).
Retarded Cop – ‘Van Man’
The latest project from DJ Gaz Le Rock, Retarded Cop is churning out a track a week of incessantly catchy punk-rock tunes which are mental and brilliant in equal proportions. Can’t get this out of my head.
KMCG – ‘Parasite’
Sombre lament taken from the Positively Negative EP which you can download for free from Bandcamp.
The Whipround – ‘Shanty Town’
There hasn’t been much Ska emerging as of late but here’s your fill from this Bray ensemble.
Leeward Side – ‘Vernon the Messiah’
Slowly building track from this Belfast four-piece which harks back to yesteryear. Download their debut EP ‘Fashion Something for free from Bandcamp.
Furlo – ‘Eyelash’
An accomplished, driven tune from the Northern Irish five-piece. Taken from second EP ‘Signature’ which was released last year.
