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.

Pine The Pilcrow – Only Ghosts

Video directed by Donal Moloney, who writes:

A couple of months ago I was asked to do a talk in the Tara Buildings on as part of their excellent ‘Creative Mornings’ monthly program.

Prior to my talk the audience were treated to a few songs performed by a newish Irish group called ‘Pine The Pilcrow’. I had never heard of them before but they blew me away with their melancholic and haunting tones.

Their sound seemed a perfect fit for a video idea I had. Their new single ‘Only Ghosts’ (released today) was particularly suited to my notion. I approached them after the talk and they were more than keen to collaborate. I did some prep work and shot this (above) a couple of weeks ago with the assistance of some great friends. If you ever get the chance, check them out.
