HyperLapse of tracking days in Bow Lane Studios during the making of Girl Band's Debut LP back in 2015
Alarmist’s sophomore record “Sequesterer” has been out a for a few weeks now… Fecking Bahamas just premiered this video of ‘Lactic Tang’ I shot during the day we made it in the studio… I think it shows that while Alarmist’s music is very serious, composed and high brow - the actual process of its creation is a complete joke…
The first small glimpse into the making of NSW's second LP in Electrical Audio with Steve Albini. This vid was dropped recently enough to mark the 10 year anniversary of the band and finishing mixing back in Ireland with Ivan Jackman at Hellfire Studios. I have a lot more from Chicago to come...
HyperLapse from Sunn O))) at the Button Factory last summer... Big thanks to Sunn O))), Stephen O’Malley and Southern Lord Recordings for sharing all the photos and this vid last year... Best collection of amps and instruments I think I have ever seen on a stage…
Shot during the making of Popular Demain back in 2014. Alarmist use every bit of kit in the gaff when they are making an album. Always a pleasure be involved in these recordings.
HyperLapse of Maths + Maths = Maths first kraut-rock extravaganza in the Bernard Shaw back in 2015.
HyperLapse of Percolator's Dublin Launch of Sestra last year at the Bello Bar. It took 7 years to complete but its worth the wait and its great to see the album and band get the recognition they justly deserve. Out now on Penske.
Was lovely to hack this footage of Paris together for Clara Tracey. This is just a teaser for the full version which is coming soon. Clara has been out in The Meadow recently putting together new material with Rían - so keep an eye out for more work from this unique songwriter.
HyperLapse of my time in all the 5 boroughs of New York City. Its every picture taken in my time there - so its about 5 months worth of photos - somewhere between 10 and 15,000 as far as I remember but I am unsure at this stage.
Sounds composed by Rían Trench.
This vid was premiered in an interview I did with This Greedy Pig a couple of years ago. It also shown at an exhibition in Liverpool shortly after its initial release, which was organised by my old friend Sam Meech .
Hyper of All We Are's killer secret show at the The Salty Dog around the release of their first record. The lads came straight down to the boat after the Other Voices show. They returned to do another Secret Salty Show last year after playing one of the big Picnic tents.
1 Year with Leo Drezden. This HyperLapse has over 5000 images. Photos cover the writing, recording and rehearsals during the making of the album Multi Moments. Hyper also has all the press shots I took for features and interviews during their most active year after the release of the album. The Hyper featured an unreleased musical interlude and was the bands final release. RIP Leo Drezden.
Was very excited to be asked to chop this video together for The Altered Hours. Great to be involved in this EP somehow as I love band, their output and the wider group of people involved. Void was Directed by Helio Leon, shot by Izabela Szczutkowska & Helio Leon. On My Tongue was also recorded by my good buds Dan Fox and Jamie Hyland so it all comes full circle with this dropping today.
HyperLapse of the last Princess gig in the Bello Bar a good few years ago. This Hyper is backed by a never before heard piece by the band and could be the final release of music we will ever hear from the late great Princess. RIP
HyperLapse of Wild Rocket playing at the Workman's Club back in 2016. This was used to tease the (U:Mack) album launch of their second record, Disassociation Mechanics, which was recorded by Rian and myself (AKA Deaf Brothers). Rocket play Ballina tomorrow so its an apt day to drop a few live snaps of the lads.
HyperLapse of Paddy Hanna recording sessions for Frankly, I Mutate with Dan Fox and Jamie Hyland. Photo's shot on numerous days and nights in Bow Lane - which has recently been demolished. Album out on March 2nd, 2018, on Strange Brew.
HyperLapse from Robocobra Quartet in the Black Box, Belfast, back in late 2015. This HyperLapse was used as promo for a sizeable UK & Irish Tour of their first full length LP, Music For All Occasions, in 2016.
Rían and myself recorded Mescalito's first EP a while back. This is a mashup of footage from the sessions. Was great to finally pin down this legendary Irish jam band in a studio for a few days after nearly a decade of sporadic activity. There will be photos from these sessions at some stage.
So glad this vid was finally dropped today. This was my favourite track from Meltybrains? Kiss Yourself EP that Rían and myself (AKA Deaf Brothers) recorded down in The Meadow. Loved the drum sound we got together, the epic soundscape that was created for such a tiny piece of music and the ridiculous car horn at the end. Think this vid encapsulates all of that. I have one more vid from these sessions to drop tomorrow.
Another one from Meltybrains? Kiss Yourself EP sessions that Rían and myself (AKA Deaf Brothers) recorded down in The Meadow. I know that this is a bit of an old one for the band and that Bob Gallagher did an amazing live vid of this one a while back but this is one of the best studio vids I've put together during the recording process. Love the build in this and the way it just gets more and more intense. Vocals recorded in Abbey a few weeks later during mixing.
MMOTHS debut LP, Luneworks, was released this time last year. This TimeLapse is One Hour during the mixing process with Rían down The Meadow. New stuff from Jack Colleran this year, which Trench also had a hand in and I can confirm is another amazing piece of work.
I put this video together for Oddsocks during the recording of their album in The Meadow and Abbey St back in the summer and autumn of 2016. This was dropped pretty much this time last year in support of the release of their first full lenght studio LP - Sounds of the City.
Rían and myself recorded All Tvvins down in The Meadow for their first video release way back when. This is a little HyperLapse of the Setup and Soundcheck that day. I'll drop the best snaps from Setup later on. All Tvvins play another sold out show at the Olympia this Friday.
Rían and myself recorded All Tvvins down in The Meadow for their first video release way back when. These are some of the best shots during the shooting later that night. There was another session about a year later but I took a crew pic at the end of the day. Both of the Vids were directed and shot by Neil Hoare. All Tvvins play another sold out show at the Olympia this Friday.
Was great to edit all this footage of Paris together for Clara Marie. Clara has been out in The Meadow recently putting together new material with Rían. She has also just announced a Body & Soul appearance with her new band featuring Kayak (Hugh Kessel) so keep an eye out for more stuff from this unique songwriter.
First Melts tracks were released last week and are now available on all the usual platforms. This was the first Teaser I dropped for them and its a TimeLapse of the first nights recording down in The Meadow. Melts play their first headline show in Whelan's in a couple of weeks.
This HyperLapse is the Trailer for the video of Skyward I put together for Melts while we were tracking their first recordings down in The Meadow. It is made up out of all the photos from the sessions. This vid is also a flyer for the lads first headline show in Whelan's in a couple of weeks.
First Melts video which was shot during the recording of Skyward down in The Meadow late last year. The tracks are getting well received by both the press and public and have had airplay on the Paul McLoone Show. Nialler9 gave this its premiere and there has been glowing reviews from The Thin Air and The Last Mix Tape amongst others.
HyperLapse of No Spill Blood launching Heavy Electricity at The Workman’s Club. Heavy Electricity was the first production Rían and myself did together and the beginnings of Deaf Brothers. No Spill play the The Grand Social this Saturday with Deborah supporting and play Raw Power at the end of the month.
It was a pleasure to work on this Live Vid for Dan Fitzpatrick (AKA Badhands)… Shot in Ailfionn Studios and Recorded and Mixed by Chris Barry… String Arrangements by Aoife Ruth and also featuring Zoe Ni Riordain and Maud Lee…
Great to see this finally get announced and that the HyperLapse I made of The Grand Social show Spud recorded was used to launch the new collaborative Katie Kim & Crash Ensemble Live Record and its upcoming launch show at The National Concert Hall
Panik Attaks recently did a bunch of recording with The Deaf Brothers down in The Meadow. This is the first release from these sessions. The Panik Attaks are a bit of a Dublin supergroup at this stage. Trevor Keogh from New Secret Weapon on drums. The legend that is Mik Pyro doing screaming leads. Alex Harvey from Thumper on bass and recently now joined by Rían Trench on rhythm and extra screaming leads. Rob Noxious is the unfortunate captain and navigator of this wayward ship and this vid of him doing vocal takes pretty much encapsulates the Panik Attaks buzz - straight up, no bullshit, raw punky rock’n’roll.
The Redneck Manifesto celebrate the launch of their new record and 20 years of the bands existence today with a very special gig in Vicar Street. This is a HyperLapse of their last gig in Whelan’s in early 2018. The new album sounds great and was recorded by Dave Odlum in Attica.
Fucked Up blasted through a blistering set to a packed Grand Social last Saturday… It was Timo’s first gig of 2019 (which is the 25th anniversary of U:Mack)… This is the HyperLapse from the show and you can catch Fucked Up around the UK and Europe until the end of the month…
The Messthetics were definitely one of the best bands I have ever seen… Amazing guitar playing from Anthony Pirog… Backed by the powerhouse that is Brendan Canty and Joe Lally - the former Fugazi rhythm section… Robocobra were consistently brilliant as ever on support duties… U:Mack’s second gig of the year was another absolute belter…
Gum Takes Tooth in The Roundy last week… Support from BB84 at both the Dublin and Cork gigs… Was great working on this little tour with everyone involved, especially Jussi and Tom from GTT… Big thanks to Albert for looking after us at the Cork leg and setting this up from the get go… Thanks to Langero for putting us all up and putting up with us… Great first gig for Moose’s new gig promotion moniker Ascension in Dublin… The JigSaw gig was Co-Promoted with Timo and U:Mack… Deaf Brothers pulled the PA together with a little help from the lads at Acoustik… ‘Borrowed Lies’ is the tune that backs this HyperLapse and its my favourite track from last year and another stellar release from Rocket Recordings… Looking forward to the next GTT gig in Ireland…
This day last week Thee Oh Sees blew the roof off the Button Factory… It was gig of the year - no doubt… The best live band on the planet - for sure… Another stellar booking by U:Mack & Aiken Promotions… I look forward to their return… Here is the Hyper from the show… Legends…
My first monster making of… ‘7 Days’ is a comprehensive insight into the creation of No Spill Blood’s debut album - ‘Heavy Electricity’… Big thanks to Matt, Ru and Lar for letting stick cameras in their face for days on end and letting me finally put all these ideas I had had into one project worthy of covering in depth… Thanks also go out to Sargent House for premiering the vids and pushing it with the album campaign…
I didn’t make it to many gigs at Knockanstockan last year before I got totally lost… Here is a Hyper of the few I did make it to… Just Mustard was my standout gig of the weekend before disappearing into the artist car park for about three days…
Sargent House sold out the Button Factory in 2014 for a label night which featured many bands from their roster… This day next week, Russian Circles and No Spill Blood play the the Button Factory again for the start of Russian Circles European Tour to support their new record “Blood Year”… This is the HyperLapse from the last time they shared the Button Factory stage and also features Emma Ruth Rundle, Tera Melos and ASIWYFA… I will try and drop the photos from a few of these gigs over the next week… Get your tickets for the next weeks show at U:Mack or Aiken Promotions….
