Thursday Sept 27th. 9pm.
Marc O’Reilly releases his new album 'L'etre Politique' on 23rd March’18.
L' ETRE POLITIQUE [LP]
LP, meaning "political being" is as it's title suggests, a political commentary. The album was written over a period of 3 months from Jan to March 2017 and recorded in two weeks in the summer of 2017. It deals with the politics of human interactions, from one on one friendships to more broader global themes of capitalism, war and globalisation. It offers an introspective look on universal issues-political beings, being political and the politics of being.
Marc O'Reilly has released 3 previous albums, 'My Friend Marx', 'Human Herdings' and 'Morality Mortality' and has enjoyed some recent international success with his track 'Bleed' streamed almost 2 million times on Spotify and featured on the soundtrack of the movie 'Whatever Happens'. His track 'Healer' was also recently used in the US TV series 'Salvation'.
Marc is famed for his electrifying live performances and has appeared at many major European Festivals including, Glastonbury, Electric Picnic, The Great Escape, Eurosonic, Reeperbahn etc
The Shaker Hymn
The Shaker Hymn released their new single ‘Dead Trees’ in September, recorded straight to tape by producer Brendan Fennessy. It’s a speedy follow up to last year’s full-length ‘Do You Think You’re Clever?’, released on the band’s own label Heavy Noids.
The release of ‘Dead Trees’ comes after a busy year where the band toured extensively around Ireland with more recent dates in Belgium, while also appearing on the soundtrack to breakout Irish film ‘Handsome Devil’. The band sound energised on the new track with a full release on the way in 2018.
