Host-ess with The Very Most-ess

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News - lmur­phy@irish­times.com By Lauren Mur­phy

Indiecater Records is mov­ing with the times. The Dublin-based la­bel will host its first gig next month. Most of Indiecater’s rev­enue is gen­er­ated through dig­i­tal sales, and to date the la­bel has re­leased just one phys­i­cal CD: the de­but al­bum of Colorado band Candy Claws, which was made avail­able in Ire­land this sum­mer. Founder Kevin Dun­phy (who also runs the MP3 Hug­ger blog) plans to ex­pand their reper­toire by mov­ing into the live fo­rum, and is host­ing a gig at Whe­lan’s, Dublin on De­cem­ber 12th.

Head­lin­ing will be Idaho band The Very Most, who have re­leased four dig­i­tal EPs on Indiecater, which will also be com­piled on CD and launched at the gig. Join­ing them are Ir­ish acts The Am­bi­ence Af­fair and Stork­boy Choons.

“Like most other record la­bels in the world, we aim to find the best old and new mu­sic, Ir­ish or oth­er­wise, and work our hard­est to get it to the widest au­di­ence pos­si­ble,” Dun­phy says. “Our aim is to put on more shows for gig-go­ers who are not re­lated to us or have not re­ceived bribes to turn up on the night to make up the num­bers.

“The Very Most are the most gen­uinely tal­ented band mak­ing pris­tine in­die pop nuggets on the planet to­day, so sign­ing them re­ally was a no-brainer.”

Tick­ets are avail­able at www.indiecater.com.
