Just a quick note on Halves, Ireland's answer to Efterklang/Mogwai/Sigur Ros and the like. I did an interview with them for drop-d yesterday, before they headed off to The Indie Hour to do a radio slot with Aoife Mac. Lovely guys, can't praise them highly enough and their new album, Haunt Me When I'm Drowsy, is out on the 16th of this month.
It's an excellent 7 tracks so make sure to get a copy. Even the album cover is beautiful, in its meticulously handcrafted glory. They play Whelans on the 17th and I urge you to go along to see them as it is sure to be a wonderful looking gig, aswell as a wonderful sounding one. They've even landed a plum spot on the Transmission festival line-up this summer. Another of Ireland's young & gifted musicians! Keep your ears peeled for Halves (if you can keep ears peeled)
