Who knew the VUDU that you do?

So it turns out all round nice guy Rob – from my local coffee shop – (The Art of Coffee) makes more than just a wonderful Americano – He’s also an extremely talented musician- in fact he’s got a Latte Talent. Check out Perfect his latest single. (He hasn’t given me any social media links…

Son of a bitch this is good from Son of The Hound

This is You Are Alive off brand new album Cheers, Sound, Good Luck from Son of The Hound aka Michael McCullagh. It’s hard not to carried away with the rousing chorus and sheer enthusiastic delivery. It reminds me of a cross between The Saw Doctors and Big Country – 2 bands I adored incidentally. Michael’s…

Serious Tune Warners: Here’s Lucent Corners

Ohhh I love synth pop duos. Pet Shop Boys, Soft Cell, The Knife and now here’s a brand new Irish group called Lucent Corners. Their debut single Time’s Like a Blade is perfectly formed crossing the wonderful electro melodies reminiscent of the aforementioned with ethereal vocals from superb vocalist Susan Moran. She along with Musician/Producer…

Listen intently to the music of James Bentley

And now to the border-country of Cavan, a place I know and love well, having worked there for a few years back in the mists of time. We find 20-year-old singer/songwriter James Bentley releasing his first EP, and a pretty promising debut it is too. James has a warm, heartfelt voice and knows his way…

Super World Exclusive Time: Foreign Owl’s new song “Jump” takes flight

We said previously “mixing elements of René Magritte, Sparklehorse, Edward Lear and whatever you’re having yourself, Foreign Owl makes quite extraordinary sounds” and now new song “Jump” (produced by Rory Moore) confirms everything we thought previously and more. It’s a jumped-up catchy-groove, with wonderful vocals over(under?)laid with a  tale of divers taking a dangerous leap into…

Have Tuath been smoking the pipsissewa?

Tuath -I’m Sorry Young Man “It was the drugs Now everything is fucked” Late breaking news, very late acturally. How late it was how late (great book, read it). So, Tuath have (has?) a fantastic new EP “Youth” out since the beginning of March which I thought I’d posted already – it was the drugs,…

Angels with Dirty Faces

Dirty Faces – Hiding Place Dirty Faces are Lorcan Hamilton and Josh O’Kane, 2-piece (we can count) outfit from Derry (where else?). This is their debut “Hiding Place”, it’s a neat piece of jagged, electronic indie a la Joy Division with stonking bass lines and serious vocals. These guys are one (two?) to watch for…

Hands up who wants to hear Montauk Hotel’s new single?

Montauk Hotel – Hands Tommy walked into the offices at SWIT (broadcasting from inside Newgrange this week) supporting a Hollywood-esque Irish brogue and said “Sure there’s music comin’ from up near the well at the top field” “What the fuck is the problem with your accent Tom?” I replied “’Tis the curse of the little…

Pity of the Sea have really impressed me.

Pity of the Sea – Monster We love it here at SWIT HQ – currently broadcasting from the top of the spire on O’Connell Street – when bands get in touch and especially ones that send us tunes as good as Monster by Limerick’s (Ireland) own Pity of the Sea. This is the opening track…
