Foreign Owl is no ordinary fowl

Foreign Owl – Pink Nose Mixing elements of RenĂ© Magritte, Sparklehorse, Edward Lear and whatever you’re having yourself, Foreign Owl makes quite extraordinary sounds. Take “Pink Nose” for example, it’s a surreal maelstrom of competing ideas, wild creativity, and poetic injustices. What emerges is one of the best songs I’ve heard all year, with a…

Crevice are some crack

Crevice – Black Box Crevice are Irene Buckley, Elaine Howley and Roslyn Steer from Cork. Well let me give you a steer dearheart, Crevice has just released “Black Box” and it’s very special indeed.

The Wood Burning Savages most likely are

The Wood Buring Savages – Living Hell Is there something in the water in Derry the noo?

What a dose: The Barbiturates

The Barbiturates – Fame The Barbiturates are obviously experiencing a period of artistic fecundity, the songs come tumbling out at the moment, almost, it seems, at will.

Preaching to the subverted: The Barbiturates

The Barbiturates – No Pity Here’s the new song from Derry’s The Barbiturates. Like an aural fucking postcard from 1971 – “No Pity” is a swaggering blues rockin’ psyched-up melee that messes with your head, coils itself around you like a bad dream, stomps into view only to stomp all over you….Lead Barb, The grateful…

Tuath – don’t ask why, ask why the fuck not?

Tuath – Cuz Why?! Well well, watched the first episode of the new Star Trek series last night, pretty damn good it was too, brought me back to watching the original series, just a wee latchico* running around the streets of Mayo. Speaking of latchicos, woke up this morning to find the new video by…

I peered through the fronds at Autre Monde

Autre Monde – Village Of Loomers Paddy Hanna and Autre Monde are becoming auteurs of a particular kind of Irish kitchen sink vignette. Over the episodic release of the four tracks on The Dukes Of Abbey Street (Popical Island), they’ve developed a very distinctive sound that undoubtedly wears it’s sharp, clipped new wave-influenced heart on…

Time to check in and check out Montauk Hotel

Montauk Hotel – Sense of Place We love it when people get in touch with us here at SWIT HQ (currently broadcasting from our studio inside Newgrange) and we love it even more when they come armed with tunes as good as Sense of Place from Dublin’s Montauk Hotel.

SWIT’s Long Player Of The Week: Last Days Of Elvis – Must Be A Mistake

“Serious” is the word that comes to mind repeatedly when I listen to “Must Be A Mistake”, the new LP by Hiberno-Scottish-German outfit Last Days Of Elvis for, make no mistake, this is serious music. The first thing that strikes you are Andrew Stark’s dark, distinctive and seriously seductive vocals, boy can this guy sing….
