So here’s another new Irish artist to add to the list. I have to concede I know very little about Dublin’s Frank Sweeney aka Bingo but this track ‘Bee’ is outstanding. Like MOTHS, Bingo has honed an ultra-contemporary electronic sound. ‘Bee’ includes samples from Destiny’s Child’s ‘Say My Name’ and has more than a hint of James Blake’s post-dubstep anthem CMYK.
Much has been said on this blog and countless others about Jack Colleran (aka MOTHS) and his gorgeously hazy brand of glitch-hop. Summer is just one of the many fantastic tunes he has mad available on soundcloud. This trip-tastic video comes courtesy of Corkonian Brendan Canty and works perfectly with the music, taking you on a Big Lebowski-esque voyage…which is nice. Canty is also the man behind the brilliant video for Daithí’s Sleep Like a Stone.
This guy just doesn’t stop. Jack Colleran has unleashed another electronic beauty to add to his growing collection. Jimmy Francis is arguably the most chilled out tune to date and it is delicious. Such a beautiful minimal sound, one of those tunes that seems to stop time when you listen to it, you just drift away into your own world where tranquillity reigns supreme. This is one young talent who deserves the hype.
A lot of college work coupled with some unforseen internet complications (which continue, damn you upc) have seen me neglect this auld yoke. Worst of all has been my limited access to the sites and blogs I gleefully waste all my time on browsing for new music. As a result my 2011 has gotten off to a slow start musically, but one artist I couldn’t escape from is MOTHS aka Jack Colleran. A few mentions on Nialler9 as well as other blogs have people talking about this very talented 17-year-old from Kildare. He’s nailed down a sumptuous Baths meets Gold Panda blend of glitch/electronic. Astonishing as his age is, it’d be a disservice to judge his tunes solely within that context, this is just damn good chill out music. Check out his soundcloud for more.
Here’s his hazy remix of Passion Pit’s Little Secrets.
