This week Chris Jones joined Rigsy and Stuart to talk new music including:

All Tvvins – Too Young To Live
Chris:
“It’s really interesting to have followed these guys…Conor from Cast of Cheers and Lars from Adebesi Shank who used to make really kind of gnarly DIY punk music I suppose – and now they’re making this really shiny widescreen eighties...pop – doing it well too.”

Dead Errands – Hideout
Chris: “
These guys are from Fermanagh…I think they literally just formed this summer…I’ve been really really impressed with this…They remind you of Steven Malkmuz…The Strokes as well - they’ve got that kind of slacker attitude – file alongside Hot Cops I would say -  maybe there is some kind of college rock revival going on.”

CRX091081GB / Becoming The Camracid - Non Aligned Church
Stuart
: “Robin Price is at SARC in Belfast…pastoral acid ambient…it’s nice, it’s got texture, it’s a wee bit bold.”

The Divine Comedy – Charmed Life
Chris:
“It’s just been announced that Neil Hannon AKA The Divine Comedy is going to be given the Oh Yeah Legends Award in November this year (2015) in a ceremony at the Mandela Hall – same ceremony where the Northern Ireland Music Prize will be presented – so yeah I just thought it would be appropriate to mark it, since he is indeed a legend of Northern Irish music, which is what we’re here to celebrate.”

I am Niamh – Hang On
Chris:
“This is Niamh Parkinson who goes under the name ‘I am Niamh’ – she’s from Dublin. This track ‘Hang On’ is from her debut album Wonderland…it’s almost house – the tempo of it and the rhythms … it’s really nice stuff…and there’s good vocals on it too.”

Silences & Jealous of the Birds – Heart of Glass
Rigsy:
“Two very gentle acts we love dearly working together and this is free to download...and I think that’s a really really fun version as well. Silences currently working on their third EP ‘There’s a Wolf’ expected later this year and playing the Body & Soul Arena at Electric Picnic on the main stage.”

FlowerMouth – Reykjavik
Chris:
“Yeah really really impressed with this. It’s a guy called Jacob Keenan-Livingstone…Really really well produced. There’s a whole lot of different influences going on therE...It’s so rhythmically intense basically...really kind of bright timbre to it - I think it’s great.”

Josh the Human – Hello To The Sun
Rigsy:
“Formed last year currently…earning their stripes and this is their debut single ‘Hello To The Sun’ and for a band just kind of starting out, I think this is really super impressive.”
