Sunday 28th January - The Weather Station

The Weather Station is the fourth—and most forthright—album by The Weather Station, the project of Toronto songwriter Tamara Lindeman. Her most fully realized statement to date, it is a work of profound urgency, artistic generosity, and joy. Self-titled and self-produced, the album unearths a vital new energy from Lindeman’s acclaimed songwriting practice, marrying it to a bold new sense of confidence.

  • read more

  • “I wanted to make a rock and roll record,” Lindeman explains, “but one that sounded how I wanted it to sound, which of course is nothing like rock and roll.” The result is a spirited, frequently topical tour de force that declares its understated feminist politics, and its ambitious new sonic directions, from its first moments. On past records, Lindeman has been a master of economy. Here her precisely detailed prose-poem narratives remain as exquisitely wrought as ever, but they inhabit an idiosyncratic, sometimes disorderly, and often daring album that feels, and reads, like a collection of obliquely gut-punching short stories.

    “Timeless… Measured, perceptive storytelling. A singer with an unmistakable & communicative voice, able to convey hope & hurt with equal clarity.” – Pitchfork

Thursday 1st February - The Bob Dylan Band

We come together to celebrate the musical legacy of the icon that is Mr Bob Dylan. Since the 1960’s, we have been spoilt by the prodigious output of this legend and the quality of his song-writing has garnered multiple awards, culminating in the ultimate recognition of the Nobel prize in Literature in 2016, “For having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition”. No matter what decade you choose, there is a favourite album or a bunch of songs that means something of significance to many followers and what the Bob Dylan Band aim to achieve is a sense of these songs throughout his long history.

  • read more
  • Drawing from solo acoustic renditions of songs such as “Blowing in the Wind”, “The Times They Are a Changing” and “A Hard Rain a-Gonna’ Fall” and arrangements of full band songs, such as “Tangled Up in Blue” and “Like a Rolling Stone”; the Bob Dylan Band also include versions of songs performed with the Grateful Dead, Eric Clapton and Bruce Springsteen. The “Last Waltz” marked a chapter in Dylan’s distinguished career and two songs from the Band, (“The Nights They Drove Old Dixie Down” and “The Weight”) are included in the set list. The show is completed with songs from the more recent albums such as Oh Mercy, Modern Times, and Together through Life, along with a selection of Dylan’s great work with The Travelling Wilburys.

Wednesday 7th February - ADHD

A band renowned for hypnotising audiences with their deep cinematic grooves, slow burning intensity, and a sonic soundscape that evokes both the glacial tundra and the volcanic desert of their native Iceland, their name, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) may be somewhat confusing. Saxophonist Óskar Guðjónsson states that their chosen initialism is, in fact, a tonic for this over-saturated, over-energised, hyper-connected world, with the music itself having a therapeutic effect on the group, as much as audiences.

  • read more
  • Live, ADHD bubble with that volcanic energy; first arising in the deep inside, only to erupt with a
    powerful intensity. IMC are excited to bring this force to Ireland for the first time as ADHD
    certainly with their roots in jazz; with improvisation and spontaneous reactions very much at
    their core.
    ADHD’s continuous search for common ground in their concentration on expansive vistas
    creates the unmistakable rapport amongst this foursome You can hear it across their 6 studio
    albums, but it still doesn’t prepare you for their singular live experience.
    Although each of the musicians have clear roles, what matters to them, fundamentally, is the
    collective sound, one which in turn is so dense that the collective dissolves into a unified whole.
    Bring open ears and an open mind and prepare your best slow burning Icelandic thunder clap.

Venue: The Loft  Doors: 7.30pm - 10.30pm  Admission: €13

Thursday 8th February - RavenEye

2016 started out fast and furious with a successful UK headline tour in January and February, as well as the direct support slot for The Darkness on their US tour in April/May and appearances at Hellfest (France), Download Festival (UK), Rock For People (Czech Republic), Azkena Rocks Festival (Spain) and the direct support slot for Halestorm in Denmark, France and Switzerland. Their incendiary live shows have captivated crowds and put them on the map as a ‘must see live’ band.

  • read more
  • Following their signing with Frontiers Records, Oli and Aaron joined forces with the masterful New Yorker, Gunnar Olsen (drums), to record their debut full-length album, NOVA.  RavenEye brought in Warren Riker (Lauryn Hill, Michael Jackson, Down, Anders Osborne), who engineered mixed the band’s EP, to help capture the band’s true sonic identity on the new album at the renowned Water Music in Hoboken, New Jersey.  The result is an exhilarating eleven-track album that pushed the band beyond its boundaries and into an astonishing new musical frontier.

    From the hard hitting riffs of “Inside”, “Madeline” and “Hero” to the raw sounds of “Wanna Feel You” and “Oh My Love’ to the stark reality of life and death in “Eternity”, NOVA transports the listener on an emotional journey of defiance, pain, love, loathing and ultimately, death.

    NOVA genuinely defines RavenEye and the things for which the band stands. Hard riffs, heavy sounds and lyrics with meaning, keeping the true 3-piece element to the sound; nothing other than guitar, bass, drums and vocals. Performing live takes this journey to the next level and developing those shows from the tracks of NOVA truly sets the present and future fans of RavenEye on the path.

Thursday 15th February - SELK

SELK formed in 2012 with the intention of creating a stripped back vocal and drum ensemble, and have been garnering much attention on the back of their live performances, but with long-player Beast under the SELK moniker, a creative identity to be reckoned with has been copper-fastened. With Cassidy the anchor man and drummer of Dublin’s jazz and hip-hop collective Mixtapes from the Underground, Jordan a unique vocalist and composer, the results are apart from much of what you’ll hear elsewhere in the country at the moment. They will be joined on the night by Barry Brady (guitar), Dave Redmond (bass), Jenna Harris and Aoife Faughnan (vocals). Support by the wonderful Liam Ó Maonlaí

Friday 16th February - Sorcha Richardson

Sorcha Richardson is a singer/songwriter from Dublin currently based in Brooklyn, New York. Since releasing an EP of bedroom-made demos in college, she has been honing her style of alternative-pop music on singles such as Petrol Station, Lost, Ruin Your Night and Waking Life, receiving praise from the likes of Zane Lowe, BBC Radio 1’s Phil Taggart and The FADER. She has performed at CMJ and Northside Festival and played to sold-out crowds at some of New York’s best venues, including Brooklyn’s Rough Trade, opening for Jens Lekman.

  • read more
  • Sorcha returned to Dublin in the summer of 2017 for what she intended to be a 6 week break but decided to extend her stay after being offered a number of gigging opportunities. This included her first Dublin headline show in 3 years at The Grand Social in September, an appearance atOther Voices in Dingle, a performance at Ruby Sessions’ renowned Christmas series, alongside James Vincent McMorrow and Danny O’Reilly (The Coronas) and a support slot with Imelda May on her Irish Tour. Sorcha was also included in RTE’s 2FM’s “Rising Artists” shortlist and is named in a number of “One’s to Watch” lists for 2018.

    This show celebrates Sorcha’s forthcoming single “Can’t We Pretend,” set for release this Spring and is the only Irish date she has planned before returning to the US in February.

Saturday 3rd March - Rob Heron & The Teapad Orchestra

Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra don’t care what genre you choose to put them in – western swing, country blues, ragtime hokum or whatever else– as long as you understand that they’re 100% sincere and 100% immersed in this stuff. This is no lazy pastiche, no dressing up box. They live and breathe this music and want you to get immersed with them.

  • read more
  • The Tea Pad are five years into a remarkable story that began with four friends studying folk and traditional music at Newcastle University and now sees them playing clubs and dancehalls and festivals the breadth of the British Isles and into mainland Europe (there was even a brief trip to India last year). Based on Tyneside but with members hailing from Orkney to Warwickshire, the Tea Pad sound draws on myriad influences – from Bob Wills to Django Reinhardt, George Jones to Cab Calloway – yet ultimately sounds like nobody else, that North Eastern Swing style that’s utterly their own and changing all the time.

    Across the three wonderful albums – 2012’s “Money Isn’t Everything”, 2014’s “Talk About The Weather” and now the new “Something Blue” – the band have constantly added new flavours to their sound: Heron in particular is a vinyl obsessive, always fired up about some new passion – calypso or boogaloo or whatever this week brings – and that eclecticism feeds into their songs, with the new album adding gospel and rockabilly to the Tea Pad palette.

    The band tour the way bands should – widely and endlessly – winning friends and fans at each new show. They played 150+ shows in 2015, including well-received performances at festivals like Glastonbury, Bestival, Wilderness and Towersey Folk Festival. They’ve appeared twice on Radio 4’s Loose Ends, and had their music played by everyone from Marc Riley to Huey Morgan.

Sunday 11th March - Huun-Huur Tu

Huun-Huur-Tu are a music group from Tuva, a republic of Russia situated on the Mongolia-Russia border. The most distinctive characteristic of Huun-Huur-Tu’s music is throat singing, in which the singers sing both the note (drone) and the drone’s overtone(s), thus producing two or three notes simultaneously. The overtone may sound like a flute, whistle or bird, but is solely a product of the human voice.

  • read more
  • The group primarily use native Tuvan instruments such as the igil khomus (Tuvan jaw harp), doshpuluur, and dünggür (shaman drum). However, in recent years, the group have begun to selectively incorporate Western instruments, such as the guitar. While the thrust of Huun-Huur-Tu’s music is fundamentally indigenous Tuvan folk music, they also experiment with incorporating not only Western instruments, but electronic music as well.

    Since the group’s inception, Huun Huur Tu has collaborated with musicians from many genres, such as Frank Zappa, The Chieftains, Johnny Guitar Watson, the Kodo Drummers, The Moscow Art Trio, The Kronos Quartet and Bulgarian women’s singing group, Angelite. Their recording “Eternal” is a collaborative effort with underground electronic musician, Carmen Rizzo. Huun Huur Tu appeared on three songs on Bahamut, the debut album of New York-based blues group Hazmut Modine. Their song “Osku Urug” is featured in the American television series Fargo episode, “The Law of Vacant Places”.

Wednesday 14th March - Keep Shelly in Athens

The ethereal and swirling sounds of the ambient influenced pop of Greece’s Keep Shelly in Athens captures the transient feelings of city life and the inevitable passing of time. With lush melodic beats and dreamy vocals Keep Shelly’s production is an accessible and light-hearted entry into the world of down-tempo electronica.

  • read more
  • With previous releases on labels including Forest Family Records, Transparent Records, Planet Mu, Cascine and Friends of Friends,  the duo have already transported their whimsical arrangements and soothing productions across the globe, including performances at Coachella Festival, Parklife Festival, Brighton’s The Great Escape Festival and Austin’s Fun Fun Fun.

Tuesday 24th April - Lost Horizons

Currently celebrating 20 years piloting the revered record label Bella Union, Simon Raymonde has scaled another personal peak, a new collaboration with drummer Richie Thomas. They’re called Lost Horizons, and though neither of them have strictly been lost, their stunning debut album, Ojalá, is a rare sighting of two gifted musicians who, for different reasons, have been largely absent from music-making for the last 20 years. Yet the record is proof of a telepathic relationship through music, established when the pair first became collaborators and friends in the eighties.

  • read more
  • Ojalá also incorporates a heady cast of guest singers. Some are signed to Bella Union, such as Marissa Nadler, former Midlake frontman Tim Smith, Cameron Neal (Horse Thief), others are long-time favourites of Raymonde’s (Leila Moss of The Duke Spirit and Ghostpoet), or newer discoveries (Beth Cannon, Ed Riman, Gemma Donleavy and Phil McDonnell). And then there is the incomparable Karen Peris of The Innocence Mission, one of Raymonde’s all-time favourites, in her first collaboration outside of The Innocent Mission and solo recordings.
    Together, the Lost Horizons ensemble has created an hour of exquisite, expansive and diverse spellcasting, from facets of soul (‘Bones’, featuring Cannon, and ‘Reckless’, featuring Ghostpoet) to dreamier invocations like ‘She Led Me Away’ (featuring Smith) and Ojalá’s lengthiest trip, ‘The Engine’ (featuring Riman). There’s the odd louder, faster detour, like ‘Life Inside A Paradox’ (featuring Neal, with Sharon Van Etten on backing vocals, and the first Lost Horizons track to emerge, on a split 7” single with Mercury Rev, for Record Store Day 2016), but the dominant mood is a deep, rich melancholia.

Venue: The Loft  Doors: 8pm  Admission: €

Saturday 19th May - Ian Moss

Respected as one of Australia’s iconic musicians, Ian Moss delivers an unforgettable sound – not only as a telling soloist on guitar but especially with his silken voice, ringing with clarity and resonating with pure soul. While primarily recognised as an axeman of tenacity and sweet melodic sensibility, Ian’s distinctive vocal is the essential signature of his soulful, bluesy muse – as it has been since his first tentative foray into music during the early 1970s.

  • read more
  • Ian Moss returns to the Northern Hemisphere for the third time following a SOLD OUT London performance in 2017 and in May 2018 will play shows in London, Glasgow, Wolverhampton and will play Manchester, Dublin, Berlin and Hamburg for the first time.

    Born and raised in Alice Springs, Ian started playing guitar in local teenage bands but moved to Adelaide after failing one of his high school years, planning to repeat in the big city. Fate intervened when he answered an advertisement for a guitarist in a shop window in 1973, joining the band that was to become a legend in Australia and that made such an undeniable impact that they are now etched in the Australian music psyche forever. That band was Cold Chisel.

    Moss has released five incredible and dynamic studio albums – The #1 and multi-platinum, Matchbook, Worlds Away, Petrolhead, Let’s all Get Together and Soul on West 53rd.
