Cormac O’Caoimh – Shiny Silvery Things

‘All that glisters is not gold’, Willie Shakespeare once wrote. He’s right. Sometimes it’s Shiny Silvery Things, Cormac O’Caoimh’s new album. Cormac’s opted for full band arrangements on the album. With different individuals on engineering/production, mixing and mastering, Cormac has left nothing to chance, and the resulting audio sounds gorgeous. Repeated listening reveals more layers, but the mixes never sound busy, and it always sounds like a Cormac O’Caoimh album.

Bobby Green is impressed by D-Day

  Review by Bobby Green Movin On is the stomping new single from Galway’s D-Day. It’s a good old fashioned balls out Rocktastic riff a thon instant anthem. It’s so radio friendly the kick drum has already impregnated my speakers and the bass has made a mess of my headphone socket.

They are defiantly a band to keep an eye on in 2017, this exciting brand of classic rock n roll is designed for...
