Bon Iver To Play O2 Dublin In November

Just got the fantastic news that Bon Iver will play the O2 Dublin on Monday the 12th of November. I could not be more happy about this, because I was meant to go to the gig in the Grand Canal Theater  last year, but circumstances got in the way. Delighted about this news though. Tickets are on sale this Friday from Ticketmaster and are 36.50.

New S. Carey EP


Sean Carey AKA S.Carey (AKA the other guy in Bon Iver). That is probably what most people who recognise his name will say. That would be a bit harsh on him, as he released a superb solo record ‘All We Grow’ back in 2010. He has a new EP ‘Hoyas’, which is out this week. ‘Two Angles’ is the first track off it and its really cool. It features sparse use of electronics and drum beats.

Ones To Watch: North Side Drive

This lad. Have been meaning to write a piece on him for about a week. North Side Drive, an musician/producer from Cork. As a huge fan of anything subtle, his stuff is really out there. Very much in the James Blake piano/electronic vibe, I first found his cover of Bon Iver’s track ‘The Wolves.’ So beautiful and sparse. This is not the ordinary for me. I don’t normally write about music this classically influenced, but this is well worth a lesson. There’s gonna be more great music from this guy, I can already tell. Check out his social media stuff below, along with some tunes. Class act.

Video: Bon Iver-‘Towers’

Here’s a video for Bon Iver’s  new single ‘Towers’, which is as perfect as we are beginning to expect from J.Vernon and the gang. The video also features our album of 2011’s second last track Lisbon, OH‘ at the start. It is shot beautifully in a forest filled town, presumably in Canada or North America. In case you didn’t already know, they won two Grammy Awards recentlyThe video premiered on Vimeo today.

Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon is working with Alicia Keys on new songs and he is also working on a new Volcano Choir album, according to an interview in USA Today. He is also working on a new project called The Shouting Matches. He describes it as “sort of a blues-gospel band.” Very interesting developments.
