Dublin-based live session series Press Record is expanding, and they need YOUR help.
Having recorded over ninety live performances and interviews since 2014, the group now looks toward continued sustainability.
Among initiatives to fundraise for new content are a compilation album of previous sessions, a lead-off single from the same, and the announcement of a Patreon crowdfunding campaign.
Writes 98FM’s John Barker:
Press Record #1 – featuring 11 of the most memorable live performances from the past 2 years. The proceeds from the album will support them in creating quality Press Record videos in the future and help promote more great Irish acts.
Press Record are releasing a new single from the album featuring the wonderfully talented O Emperor performing their song Trash Club live in-studio. The song is taken from the band’s EP ‘Lizard’ released in November 2015. Using this unique way of generating funding and released with the full support of the all the artists involved, the live album is available to purchase today for €10 with all proceeds going towards future Press Record videos.
The team has also started funding through a Patreon campaign which encourages fans and supporters of their videos to subscribe a small amount of money each month.
Streaming above is the team’s latest live video, for funky nine-piece TooFools‘ single Torn, also released this morning.
You may have briefly caught a version of this driving grunge pop beast from Dublin-bred Otherkin on the ‘sheet last week.
There was something wrong in the audio ‘mix’ so the band – David Anthony, Luke Reilly , Rob Summons, Conor Andrew Wynne – went back to the mixing board to produce this new actually significantly improved version.
Fair play, in fairness.

Dublin-based Come On Live Long is Robert Ardiff, Louise Gaffney, Ken McCabe and David O’Connor and they play a mix of electronic, funk, alt rock and folk. ‘Why Don’t You’ is from their new untitled album which will be released in early 2016.

“This goes under the category of ‘a band not to miss’ at HWCH [Hard Working Class heroes festival in Dublin] this weekend. Bitch Falcon play Hangar tomorrow night at 9.30pm and over the last few days have been heavily tipped by Nialler9, Una Mullally, Goldenplec and every music blog you can think of as the band to see over the three days. Definitely one of the biggest buzz bands this year. This song ‘Wolfstooth’ (above) was their first and most popular single, released in January….
