Song Of The Day: Rosie Carney – Tidal Wave

Posted on by Paul in Song of the Day | Leave a comment

Ireland’s Rosie Carney first came to my attention back in late 2020 with The Bends, her track for track reinterpretation of Radiohead’s 1995 album. And while it may have been cover songs which initially grabbed my attention, an investigation into her own catalogue finds Carney to be a fine songwriter in her own right. Exhibit A – “Tidal Wave”, the gently melancholy third single off of her upcoming album i wanna feel happy.

i wanna feel happy is out May 27th via Color Study.

Next month, Montreal’s Yoo Doo Right will release their latest full length album A Murmur, Boundless To The East. “The Failure Of Stiff, Tired Friends” is the second single off that album, a beautiful, sprawling post-rock number that really hits its stride at around the midway point when the Morricone-esque guitar makes its appearance and brings on the spaghetti western vibes.

Check out the video for “The Failure Of Stiff, Tired Friends” below.

A Murmur, Boundless To The East is out on June 10th via Mothland Records.

Song of The Day: HAEPAARY – Born by Irreproachable Gorgeousness (Live at SXSW 2022)

It’s now been over a month since this year’s edition of SXSW ended and just yesterday, the festival shared a bunch of live performance footage from several of this year’s shows, including a song from one of the more memorable acts we saw all week – HAEPAARY. The Seoul-based duo blend together traditional South Korean sounds with electronic elements to produce something rather unique.

Check out HAEPAARY’s performance at the International Day Stage in Brush Square Park below.

Song Of The Day: The Wedding Present – Monochrome

While The Wedding Present haven’t put out a proper full length album since 2016’s Going Going …, they’ve certainly kept busy during the time since then with various projects, including re-recordings of entire classic albums of theirs and a collection of James Bond theme covers. And 2022 will be no different, with David Gedge and co. currently in the midst of their 24 Songs project, which sees the band releasing a 7″ single for each month of the year.

The Wedding Present’s latest release in this project, “Monochrome”, falls on the gentler side of their musical pallete and is a welcome addition to the band’s discography. Check it out below.
