Trainman Blues – Skulls, Crosses, and Bones

Trainman Blues is the brainchild of Irish blues artist Richard Farrell and Danish bass player and producer Laust “Krudtmejer” Nielsen.

Skulls, Crosses and Bones is taken off Trainman Blues’ first album, released on Danish label ‘Straight Shooter’ [and launched last night at Denmark’s hub for blues, Mojo Blues Bar in Copenhagen ahead of a European tour, with some irish dates].

David Kitt – I Still Don’t Know

First single from Yous, Dubliner Kitt’s first solo record in nine years released this morning.

They say:

The record was largely done by Kitt at his Dublin home, in a “teeny attic room” although old friend and collaborator, Karl Odlum, pops up, and Margie Lewis’s violin plays a crucial role throughout the record, as does Ireland, and more specifically, Dublin.

The city, surrounding countryside, and its inhabitants, are a constant thread throughout, giving the album the feel of a personal travelogue that spans two decades.

The Big Lovin’ – Keeping Up With The Clock

The debut single and video from Cork band led by glammed up beardster Seamus Poillot.

They say:

grabs infectious pop by the tail and knocks you silly with it. It’s like all the other original music you’ve heard, but with a twist: it’s actually good. Damn good.
