When will the madness end?


So I got to interview Final Fantasy yesterday. 30 minutes on the phone with him, and what do we end up talking about for most of it? The Omnichord, and the Juno! Total nerdfest, but great fun. He told me a mate of his, Jenny from the Barmitzvah Brothers has made a solo album under the name Jenny Omnichord. And yes, you guessed it. She made it on an ……..

Owen Pallett is a total dude! Had a really good laugh with him, and he was pretty interesting. An edited version of the interview will be in next month’s Totally Dublin. I’ll hopefully put the whole interview up here once the piece has ran.

Final Fantasy will be coming to Dublin shortly, and the line-up for the night is excellent. Joining him on the bill are Miracle Fortress and A Hawk And A Hacksaw in Vicar St. on December 11th. Thanks to the Foggy Notions guys for another brilliant show.

Menomena, doo doo, de doo doo

Pesky deadlines have prevented me from posting recently, but that’s all over now, I’m back! Since then, Jape has managed to rack up a rather impressive, thoroughly deserving 3/4’s of a million views on youtube for his new video to accompany the release of Floating. Go on Richie! Well, there’s no point posting that vid now really, but to continue the theme of food, fruit, food fights (nope, still a rather tenuous link) here’s the video for Rotten Hell from the fabulous Menomena. I’ve been screaming about this band for quite some time now. Hell, back in the day when Pedro and I were thinking of starting a label they were one of his first choices (so the credit should go to him). Their latest album Friend and Foe is a complete masterpiece. I must be right about this because Pitchfork said so too and they’re never wrong, it’s been scientifically proven or it’s in the Geneva Convention, I forget which. Enjoy.

I just finished a review of the new Silje Nes album on Fatcat for Totally Dublin, and it’s really lovely. Definitely worth checking out. The album that is, not my review.
