Video: Watch John Grant perform Glacier with a little help from Sinead O’Conner and Conor O’Brien

If (like me) you weren’t lucky enough to get tickets to John Grant’s sold out show in the Olympia last Monday, then you likely missed this brilliant rendition of his song Glacier, which is made even better by guest vocal harmonies from none other then Sinead O’Conner and Conor O’Brien(Villagers). Luckily, thanks to the wonder of modern technology, a fairly good quality bootleg has appeared on YouTube. Check it out above.

Dublin band Swords have released a new video for their single ‘Hips’. The video was directed by Neil Hoare and features Katie McCann & Barry Tallon. The song comes out on Northern Irish label Smalltown America Music with whom the band signed a publishing deal last year.

Video: The Hot Sprockets release video for upcoming single ‘Homeslice’

The Hot Sprockets have revealed a fantastic new video for their upcoming single ‘Homeslice’ due for release March 7. The single, taken from their forthcoming second album ‘Brother Nature’ is a much slower, chilled out number than some of their previous offering like ‘Comin On’ or ‘Soul Brother’ and it serves to showcase the bands talent for eclectic songwriting. The video was directed by Dublin actor/director Hugh O’Conor. ‘Brother Nature’ drops on June 7th, and I for one can’t wait!
