Joey Ryan Trio – Stay Strong
“Thought you might give this a plug – a friend of mine just released this. He’s a young, talented Irish musician who good cause aside deserves some exposure. The single is 99c, all the proceeds go to Breast Cancer Ireland. Thank you.”

Bring Your Mind – Faune
Dublin electronic duo’s stonking debut single.
“This is our very first video, produced by the fantastic ‘Cube Media’ ( who are very close with the legendary Exchequer St boy). The whole thing cost under €500 ( as a very kind favour from the Cube Media lads) and basically involved us throwing crystals at our face and swinging a disco ball around.”

The Strypes – Hard To Say No
Another Strypes video for their new single shot in the Town Hall in Cavan over Christmas where the lads played three gigs. Makes the Town Hall look shit cool in my opinion…. it’s mostly just used for Bingo.
