Video: Daithí – The Dog

‘The Dog’ is the curtain closer on Daithí’s stunning Embrace EP.  This beautifully shot video was directed by Eoin Kelly Smith, a media student who has worked with Imeall (check out his Smedia winning mocumnetray here)! The video captures Daithí, himself a native of Clare, roaming the Burren and jamming in his apartment, his own creative hub as well as shots of   Smith’s aunts three-legged, obese dog.

The tireless Daithí will be performing at Solstice Cork as part of the Cork  Midsummer Festival between June 16th and 19th, as well as Body and Soul, No Place Like Dome and Castlepalooza with more festivals to be announced. He’s currently working on his first album, due for release next year with the singles due to come out later this year.

Tune of Today

Since the ever knowledgable Albert Twomey of Plug’d Records recommended Marnie Stern’s self titled 2010 album to me a few weeks ago I have been well and truly addicted. It is fucking rockin. Think Sleigh Bells meets Fang Island…and then some! This is the opening track and the album doesn’t stop to take a breath from the first second to the last.

Album: Mojo Fury – Visiting Hours of a Travelling Circus

I recently started writing for Goldenplec.com, but I plan to keep tipping away on this auld yoke all the same. Here’s my first album review for the site.

Having formed in 2004 and with three EPs under the belt, it was about time Northern Ireland’s Mojo Fury released their debut album. That said, when we consider the face-lift the band has experienced,going from a three piece to foursome with Michael Mormecha migrating from behind the drum kit to front the band as vocalist and guitarist, the delay becomes understandable….
