The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS - Tony Clay­ton-Lea Jim Car­roll Cor­mac Larkin

Barry McCor­mack Dublin song­writer Barry McCor­mack (above) has a long enough his­tory with na­tive his city, hav­ing doc­u­mented many tales, both tall and not so, in a se­quence of ex­cel­lent folk al­bums. New al­bum, The Tilt of the Earth, is a de­par­ture, mix­ing krautrock bells and art-rock whis­tles to his evoca­tive lyri­cal nar­ra­tion. TECHNO Diffract Diffract bring the techno and elec­tro noise to this end of Washt­ing­ton Street with a fine gath­er­ing of home­grown names. Krayb David tops the bill, the Gal­way-based pro­ducer who has sup­ported Plaid and Bat­tles and has re­leases for the Cut & Paste la­bel un­der his belt. There’s also sup­port from Fu­ture Mu­sic’s Re­ich Joyce, Skirmish main­stay Shiv and Hames. Mu­sic – and par­tic­u­larly im­pro­vi­sa­tion – is in­creas­ingly recog­nised for the role it plays in brain de­vel­op­ment, so in­tro­duc­ing your lit­tle mon­sters to com­plex, more ab­stract mu­sic is likely to make them smarter, as well as cooler. Blend­ing mu­sic and vi­su­als, Mon­ster Mu­sic Im­prov fea­tures ground-break­ing vo­cal­ist Kin­sella, Dublin gui­tarist and pedal jockey Shane La­timer, and live car­toon­ist Pa­trick San­ders.
