FIXITYCork psych-rock outfit with fourth record this year

What you may need to know…

01. The brainchild of sticksmith extraordinaire Dan Walsh and collaborators, FIXITY are among the outfits at the centre Cork’s nascent psych-rock community.

02. Walsh is certainly keenly aware of the joys of productivity – not content with being one of the city’s busiest session musicians, he’s been at the helm of two full-length improv records since June (!), and a live album of same.

03. Streaming above in its entirety is Blue Paint, the leadoff for FIXITY’s third studio full-length, The Things in the Room

04. …which will be available shortly on double-vinyl, CD and digital download via Penske Recordings, the new label of ex-Out on a Limb/AMC and current Plugd Records man Albert Twomey. Meanwhile, the project turns out to support The Spook of the Thirteenth Lock on Sunday October 30th at the Opera House for d’Jazz.

Verdict: This time around, the band seems to journey into more sparse, repetitive, Krautrock territory. Another in a series of left-turns from an already-insanely prolific outfit.
