monday music 101

Everything is running a bit slow after the blog awards. Here’s todays 101 - just a little later than usual.

I’ve had the Delorento’s living in my ear all this week - discovering them nearly three years since they were the ‘next-big-thing in the making’ (according to Mr Sheridan). There is something very calmative in the songs on their album in love with detail. The confident vocals supported by the lyrics, repetitive without becoming irritating, are what stand out for me. The percussion and bass create a great, and subtle enough, atmosphere for each song that makes listening to the whole thing a real pleasure.

The band sound familiar, even on first hearing, which really can’t be a bad thing for a first album. Overall the Delorento’s have mightily impressed me - so much so that I have just booked myself two tickets to see them in the Olympia in April.

For those that don’t know (I didn’t until yesterday) Adrian Crowley has become a resident of Whelans. Well, he is every Wednesday throughout March at least. Wednesday night will see him alongside Mumblin’ Deaf Ro and Boa Morte. Aoife has an interview with Ro (as the Mammy calls him).

    Delorentos’ are one of Ireland’s best live bands. They played an amazing set at Vicar Street last week. Bleedin’ brilliant.
    Delighted to see Mumblin’ Deaf Ro and Adrian Crowley (sort of) made it to this week’s Monday Music 101! It will be a great treat to catch both of them playing on the same night.
    Thanks for the link :)

    Three links in three days. This is getting out of hand!

    Really enjoyed listening to the Delorentos all week - and looking forward to the gig on Wednesday. I’ve fallen hard for Adrian Crowley…

    A bit of link love is always appreciated!
    Adrian is great, his album is wonderful. He also played last wednesday at the choice prize, and despite his guitar disappearing from the mix for 20 seconds, it was a great show.
    See you at the gig tomorrow night so!
