  • read more
  • The title of Be Honest and Fear Not is an affirmation of the band’s modus operandi in 2016; if you are good at something, don’t compromise. Be Honest and Fear Not is filled with the Limerick outfit’s keen sense of melody and also some of Ryan’s finest lyrics penned to date; filled with the hopes, fears, doubts, aspirations, confusion and bemusements of the modern Irish musician. The intervening time between the Choice Music Prize-nominated I Am Not The Crow and Be Honest and Fear Not has not seen the band resting on their laurels – releasing a split record with Dublin indie outfit Land Lovers and collaborating with fellow Limerick mavericks Rusangano Family and Naive Ted (who also recorded, produced and mixed ‘Helicopters’ with windings). The band follow up recent shows with Generationals, The Decemberists and Grandaddy with Irish dates following the album’s release with long-time collaborators Out on a Limb Records. For long-time windings’ fans, Be Honest and Fear Not sees one of Ireland’s most interesting bands return in a manner that we would have hoped to see and hear. For first time listeners, this will be one of the most rewarding sonic experiences of your year.

Thursday 6th April - Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble

Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble - Admission: €18 (also available in advance online – www.tickets.ie at €18 INCLUDING BOOKING FEE)
Stereolab vocalist Laetitia Sadier returns to Dublin with her new Source Ensemble. Bubbling synths, kraut pop rhythms and angular guitars a plenty, all underpinning that delicious laconic French voice fans of the ‘lab have adored for years!

  • read more
  • Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble,
    Another New Year, and new shapes are forming – if only we are fortunate enough to notice them! As we spin through this world, we are witness to all manner of combinations unfolding before us – familiar arcs and breaking waves alike, upon all of which it is our choice, our chance and our challenge, to possibly ride. Find Me Finding You, the new album from the new organization called the Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble, manages to strike new chords while touching familiar keys in the song of life.

    From its percolating opening beat, Find Me Finding You locates new systems within the sound-universe of Laetitia Sadier. When we hear synth lines diving, lifting and drifting, unusual guitar textures, the plucked sound of flat wound bass strings or the bottomless pulsing of bass pedals stepping out of the mix with an exquisite vibrancy, this is the sound of the Source Ensemble! This designation implies a new togetherness phase; alongside long-time collaborators Emmanuel Mario and Xavi Munoz, keyboard and flutes parts played by David Thayer were essential contributions, as well as further keys, synths and electronics from Phil M FU and several intense guitar sequences from Mason le Long. The duet with Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor on “Love Captive” (not to mention Rob Mazurek’s distinctive coronet playing!) gives voice to an ideological cornerstone of Find Me Finding You – that, should we be responsible enough to endeavor into a world of basic incomes and open relationships, we would make astonishing strides as a society. These sorts of things can only be done in agreement with others.

    The first single, “Undying Love For Humanity”, announces its immediacy with protracted rhythms and pronounced vocal expressions. Laetitia proclaims power to the people–now! It’s a call to arms for the public to recognize and exercise their strength for good, which is just what the world needs now at this moment in time. It doesn’t hurt that “Undying Love For Humanity” is catchy as hell, now does it?
    Expressing great compassion and expectation, as well as an abiding belief in an underlying unity that permeates and intimately binds all things and beings, Find Me Finding You is set for release on March 24th!
