THE SWIT: The best tunes from around the world (Nov 25 – 09 Dec)

It’s snow joke here in Dublin folks, we were promised heavy snow overnight, what do we wake up to? Torrential pissings of rain, rain and more rain. Gerry’s not happy, he had the sleigh ready and he’d been practicing his Ho Ho Hos all night…..he’s gone back to bed now with a bottle of whiskey…

Super World Interview Time: David Harks

David Harks is an Englishman in Berlin (could that be a song?) – We’ve featured him a number of times over the past year – solo, with Safetalk and Satin Jackets, he’s obviously a very busy and creative chap. His music is putting metaphysics back where it belongs- on the dancefloor. I hear that John…

SWIT’s Long Player Of The Week: Okay by Wy

Wy – Okay (Hybris/Better Call Rob) First thing first, “Okay” by Wy is a fantastic record.

He largely composes for dance and film and his work ranges from conceptual to more traditional song structures, it’s always interesting and succeeds very well on its own merits. We were delighted to snag an interview, please do have a read and a listen – we…

SWIT’s Long Player Of The Week: The Luxembourg Signal – Blue Field

The Luxembourg Signal – Blue Field (Shelflife Records/kleine untergrund schallplatten) The first 3 tracks on the new Luxembourg Signal LP are a serious statement of intent, “big-boned and hardy-handsome”, carefully crafted dark, sleek, indie pop – all jagged guitars, atmospherics and coolasfuck vocals. They proclaim this is a serious band making serious music. Ok, on…
