Craic Boy Mental & Post Punk Podge take aim at the Irish music scene with new track ‘Dangerous Fella’

If you haven’t heard of Craic Boy Mental yet, you might know him from one of his many pseudonyms (F.K.A Oscar Benso, Dudewithswag, King Flora, Yung Gowl). If that’s all new to you, then you’ve got a lot of back catalogue to dig into with Ireland’s Greatest PopStar.

Last month he released the mixtape Cork City Anthems featuring collaborations with Invader Slim, Fynch and loads more and just a few weeks later he’s back with a brand new track featuring Post Punk Podge (minus the Technohippies). Listen to the pair take aim at the Dublin centered music scene. We count references to Nialler9, The Murder Capital, Samantha Mumba, Daniel O’Donnell, Wyvern Lingo, Louis Walsh, 
Mathman, The Corrs, D.C Fontaines, BIMM & Breaking Tunes. What a bunch of Dangerous Fellas!

Premiere: The False and The Fair release ‘First Snow’, as part of a series of winter themed unplugged videos.

TMFTML are happy to premiere ‘First Snow’, the first in four part series of winter themed unplugged style videos from Dublin 4 piece The False and The Fair. Readers of the blog will be no strangers to the band as we covered their last single ‘Gone Tomorrow’, noting how well it showed off their eclectic songwriting style in comparison to previous their release ‘Bald Apes’ . ‘First Snow’ is another beautiful track which illustrates this quality perfectly.

Filmed in drummer Jacob Fry’s sitting room, the track starts off full of harmony between the guitars, vocals and bass with sparse percussion before kicking into an unexpected groove that carries the listener along the lyrical journey towards it’s close. It’s a brand new track written for the series. A new video will be released through their YouTube page each week for the rest of December and will include new arrangements of some old fan favourites.

Gig of the Week: The False and The Fair take over Whelan’s this Saturday

Dublin 4 piece The False and The Fair first piqued our interest with last years ambitious debut single ‘Bald Apes’. Since then the band have been steadily building their following and developing their live show.

Now the band are back with new single ‘Gone Tomorrow’, a flowing acoustic led track which contrasts deeply with previous efforts and serves to demonstrate the eclectic mix of influences and original sounds that The False and The Fair bring to the table. The lead guitar, shimmering cymbals/atmospheric percussion work and leading basslines all blend perfectly together and build the song slowly to a spine tingling crescendo aided by some beautifully arranged harmonies.

You can stream or download the track for free from their Bandcamp page linked below.

This Saturday at 8pm The False and The Fair will take over Whelan’s upstairs venue to celebrate the release. Support on the night comes from Galleries and Himalaya. Tickets are only €6 and are available from

P.S. If you’re looking to make a night of it, TADGH are playing a show in the same room right afterwards.
