This Weeks News March 18

eileenGogan_holding_bigEileen Gogan is launching her debut album this week after spending years fronting and guesting for many Dublin pop bands. – The launch is Thursday March 24 in the Grand Social

Her powerful, unaffected singing style has been compared with Sandy Denny and Kirsty McColl but her sound – a blend of glistening guitar and vintage keyboards – draws on a range of influences such as Richard and Linda Thompson, Neil Young, Can, Patti Smith and Yo La Tengo.

Her song writing blends astute observations with razor sharp lyrics and a highly attuned pop sensibility. This collection is an enthralling and winningly confident debut from a songwriter who is in full control of her craft, Eileen has sung for some of Irelands finest bands, (The Would Be’s, The Revenants, The Drays).

The Spirit of Oberlin is the first ever collection of songs penned by Eileen herself.

This weeks News – Feb 12

Jumble RockThis weeks news Feb 12

Not this week but a date for your diary – Coming up on Feb 27 and a real date for your diary post Irish General Election is Jumble Rock – a new all ages music event coming to the Hot Spot Music Club, Greystones on the 27th of February 2016 (1 – 5 pm). There will be a music jumble sale. Sell or trade your records, tapes, CDs, books, zines. €10 to set up a stall and a cheaper rate of €5 for U16s. Email at hotspotmusicclubg@gmail.com if you want to set up a stall. We’ll be playing the best in punk, garage, blues, and folk. Expect to hear Bo Diddley, Jessie Mae Hemphill, Klennex, C.C.T.V, The Clean, Joan Shelley, and many others. Come down to browse the stalls, listen to some great music, and chat about your favourite songs. General entry is free on the day.

 

Back to this week though and it’s some weekend for gigs – small, large completely diy right through to plain alternative.  Whether it’s the folk rock tunes of Frank Turner or the trash metal of suicidal tendencies the Academy will keep you interested in the major label supported acts.

However DIY and indie promoters have just as much going on – Richie Ramone is on in the Voodoo Lounge on Saturday and Obstruct are playing with the flex in tenterhooks. There’s punk rock in on the rox and State magazine are presenting the State of faces night in Whelans.

Also Cian Nugent’s Night Fiction came out on January 29th via Woodsist Records. It is Cian Nugent’s third album but his first taking on the role of singer-songwriter. Where his previous two albums: 2013’s Born With The Caul and 2011’s Doubles saw him exploring extended guitar based instrumentals with his band, The Cosmos, here he has reigned things in and focused his songwriting skills. Guitar fans, do not fear, there is still plenty of soloing and fingerpicking here. With 7 songs both solo and with his band, this album amalgamates everything Cian has done up to this point and reveals a more broad palate of influences, including The Velvet Underground, Richard Thompson, Television, Neil Young, John Lennon, Fred Neil, etc.

Recorded over a week beginning on Valentine’s Day 2014, Night Fiction was recorded in Bow Lane Studios in Dublin with Daniel Fox (Girl Band) and mixed by Brendan Jenkinson. The album’s seven songs include solo ventures as well as full-band recordings feat. David Lacey on drums, Conor Lumsden on bass, Brendan Jenkinson on organ and piano and Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh on viola. The vibe here is familiar yet refreshing and a logical progression for Cian.
