Trick Mist – Fraction

Trick Mist writes:

‘Fraction’ is about those times when you are living as a shadow of yourself. Those rough times when you’re working towards something but it takes its toll on your personality. I was heading to India and sacrifices needed to be made in order for that to happen.

We hope when we make sacrifices that we experience reward. It’s frustrating but ultimately rewarding to come out the other side of it and feel like your full self again.

What the video director Graham Patterson has done with the visual is concealed the element of reward. It’s a striking, exposed and heavy portrayal of sacrifice and we never know whether it’s worth it or not.

So there.

Amanda Palmer & Jherek Bischoff – Mother

A spectacular aural and visual rendering of Pink Floyd’s Mother dedicated to the current US administration.

Hilary Phelan writes:

I don’t know how to describe Amanda Palmer’s new video. I’m too stunned to form a sentence.I just know that the media has responded with silence and this needs to get out there.

It would be great if you would publish your thoughts on the video, it deserves to be seen.

Your thoughts?

The Kerbs – Changes

Alex writes:

With the heartbreaking news from last night .. perhaps our new stop-motion music video might cheer up the nation a little bit?

With no budget, a fondness for drinking tea, and by painstakingly stitching together nearly 3500 photos, new Irish alternative rock band ‘The Kerbs’ tell the imperfect love story of two mugs of tea with the release of heartfelt debut single ‘Changes’.

Fergal Edward – Barriers

Dublin singer songwriter Fergal writes:

Having recorded my EP at the beginning of the summer, I wasn’t sure how to release it. I was stuck, basically paralyzed by a fear of putting all my work out into the online abyss.

Then late one night at a festival, luckily with my camera by my side, I spotted a luminescent butterfly struggling through the long grass, avoiding being trampled on by clumsy festival-goers.

He then takes a lifeline in the form of the hand of one of those revellers, which gives him the chance to gather his wings, and finally fly off to fulfill his airborne potential.

This moment seemed so perfectly matched with my song ‘barriers’, which is about being isolated, lacking the courage to move forward as you know you should, until you realise that sometimes you need another person to help you get where you need to be.

Eoin Glackin – Wear it While You Can

Pete Murphy writes:

The song is inspired by the story of K.V. “Kathy” Switzer, who controversially entered the Boston Marathon in 1966, when it was still a Men Only race.

The song developed into this barn burning, foot stomping single with the core message of do what you want while you are still able, “Why wait on the end when the end it waits on us?”.

Fight!

Donegal native Eoin plays The Workman’s Club (10, Wellington Quay, Dublin 2] on December 2.

Hooligan feat Christy Dignam – Justa Nother Teenage Rebel

Eugene Connolly writes:

I just thought this unique video might be of some interest to your regulars.

It is the lead track of the recently launched 4 track Teenage Rebel EP by Dublin punk band Hooligan featuring Christy Dignam on vocals.

Entitled ‘Justa Nother Teenage Rebel’, it’s a cover of the original song by The Outcasts on Good Vibrations in 1978.

Christy & I cut our musical teeth in the white heat of those early punk days & The Outcasts were a particular favourite live at The Dandelion Market, The Project Arts Centre & McGonagles.

Released on Reekus Records by Elvera Butler, it has added significance as it was she who released Aslan’s legendary first single ‘This Is’ in 1986.

The CD for sale on general release next Wednesday 18th in Tower Records & available for upload also.
