windings – new music en route
What you may need to know…
01. Limerick five-piece windings have outlived and outlasted their DIY forebears and become a staple of Irish independent music.
02. Emerging from the ashes of beloved hardcore duo giveamanakick, they’ve since trod the boards with Daniel Johnston, Smog/Bill Callahan, Bob Mould, Okkervil River, Caribou, Iron And Wine, Villagers, Teenage Fanclub, Kurt Vile, and Modest Mouse on their way to releasing three full-lengths and multiple singles.
03. Streaming above is the band’s most recent release, digital single Stray Dogs/Helicopters. Production on the B-side from Limrock noise-hop luminary Naive Ted.
04. New album Be Honest and Fear Not is on the way, and the band’s label is clearing house to make room. Long-running Shannonside label Out on a Limb currently have a summer sale on, with 25% off everything with discount code OOALSALE. Music on CD, vinyl and tape, including Rest, Owensie, Shardborne, and reissues from giveamanakick and Tooth.
Verdict: A hint at a more foreboding, eclectic direction for the veteran alternative outfit.
