Come On Live Longsoundscapes and breathy vox from Dublin

What you may need to know…

01. Last time we checked in on Dublin four-piece Come on Live Long, they’d just launched single For the Birds with a gig at the Unitarian Church in Dublin.

02. Since then, they’ve been busy preparing their follow-up album to 2013’s Everything Fall, while vocalist Louise Gaffney also contributed to the sublime Glow, on Wicklow math-rockers Enemies‘ final album Valuables.

03. Streaming above is the video for new single Sum of its Parts, with footage taken by the band from the recording process.

04. It’s taken from upcoming sophomore album In the Still, available for pre-order on vinyl and streaming from May 19th.

Thoughts: A glimpse of something that could be absolutely breathtaking, from the less-is-more school of composition.

CatacombsCork pop outfit call it a day

What you may need to know…

01. Promising Cork psych/gaze/pop outfit Catacombs called time on their brief run last week via social media, after a year’s absence from live activity.

02. They’d been steadily gigging around Leeside, around the smaller venues, sharing stages with lo-fi pop outfits like No Monster Club and HAGS, among others.

03. Streaming above is last single Glow, thrown up on YouTube as a parting shot.

04. For those of you fond of nineties-esque jangles and fuzz, their handful of demos and singles are available here.

Thoughts: A warm note to finish on, erring on the homelier side of indie/pop as opposed to getting lost in reverb and awash with psychedelia.
