Squarehead – 2025

I somehow, inexplicably, missed the release of the album ‘Respect’ last year from Squarehead. However, I’ve been afforded the chance to make amends by the (re?)release of the single 2025 in aid of St. Francis Hospice in Raheny. I urge you, the discerning reader-listener-viewer-person, to do good for your ears and society as a whole by joining me in shelling out for the single. Not only do you get to support charity, you get to support one of Dublin’s best bands too!

2:54 – No Better Prize

From the new album “The Other I”, this is a track called “No Better Prize”. It’s a bit of a grower, so give it a few listens. Some really lovely drumming in there. Sounds excellent on a Sonos Play 5, for the record!

Ben Howard – Rivers In Your Mouth


Seems like the right kind of track for today’s grim, overcast weather. Reminds me a bit of White Ladder-era David Gray.

Glass Caves – Go

Some hirsute gentlemen from the UK tell you to go… somewhere. They aren’t specific.

…And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead – Lie Without A Liar

New Trail of Dead album! It’s called “IX”, and is out now. I’ll probably post another couple of tracks later this week, but this seemed like a good track to start off with. It’s unusually low-key for a Jason Reece-fronted number, but builds to a good climax.


The Twilight Sad – I Could Give You All That You Don’t Want

Another quality track from the new Twilight Sad album. Perfect material for a rainy, grey, overcast November day.

Manchester Orchestra – Girl Harbor

A little something quieter for Friday evening, from the usually-not-so-quiet Manchester Orchestra.


Tkacuk – Borders And Land

Decent, if somewhat repetitive bit of indie-electro. Where do they get these names from?


Pulled Apart By Horses – Medium Rare

Do you like classic rock? Then you may like Pulled Apart By Horses quite a lot. This is the latest single from their new album ‘Blood’.


Young Tongue – Cat Calls

I’ve only heard two tracks by these guys, but they’re both very good indeed. I’m tempted to say that they’re particularly ‘fresh’, as they don’t really seem to have a website or major Internet presence of any sort. Still, let the angular guitars and unexpected percussion twists speak for themselves.
