Hello Internet

I have recommended other things with relatively little explanation. Sometimes a song doesn’t require much explanation, I’m recommending it because I think it’s a good song. But if I’m going to recommend listening to what could eventually amount to hundreds of hours of two dudes talking, I’d better tell you something about it up front. I’ll write a brief profile of the host and vice-host from a listener’s point of view.

Wintergatan

I saw the marble machine video when it came out in 2016. Like a lot of people, I was blown away. It now has over 70 million views on YouTube. I’ll embed it below in case you are the person who hasn’t seen it.

Any Joy – Cycles

Cycles is the debut album by Any Joy. If you read the About page on this website, you know I’m playing synth in this band, so I can’t claim this is an unbiased recommendation. But Oisin recorded the album before putting the band together, and I joined the band after I had already seen them play live at the album launch. I objectively liked this before I was involved in any way. You should listen to the album right now. But if you get a chance to see us playing live, that’s what I really want to recommend.

If you’re a vinyl person, you can order that on Bandcamp (limited edish). And here’s a music video for ‘Avert Yer Eyes’, the first song on the album. The video was made by Mac Premo Inc., I’m blown away by the way it’s turned out. Amazing work.

Look at them there, a great bunch of lads.

The Bees – Angryman

I like this band. I like this song. I like the album “Sunshine Hit Me”. One of the songs was in a Bulmers ad. I don’t have to write a review or do a bunch of research to recommend something. Find it in your preferred music service or format. Just press play.

Six Months

Yes, okay, it’s been six months since I wrote anything on this website.

Yeah, this isn’t that kind of website. Thanks for reading.

Under Construction

This site is unfinished. At time of writing we’ve got test pages and broken links. I bought a domain but haven’t hooked it up yet. But… at some point in the future I will point to this and say, “Look, I made something!” I’ll finish the new album (yes!) and the short film (yes!) and I’ll have somewhere nice to show them off. Until then, welcome to the backstage area. Here we let it all hang out.
