Dane from The Flaws by Ian Olvier
Last Thursday we were joined on the indie hour by Dane from The Flaws, who took some time out of recording with the rest of the band to tell us a little bit about the past year for this lot from Co Monaghan.
It has indeed been a great year for them, seeing their debut album Achieving Vagueness receive a Best Irish Album nomination at the upcoming Meteor Awards, as well as Best Irish Band.
We spoke about the recording of Achieving Vagueness, about how the lads found their sound, but also a little about their nomination to the corporate award ceremony that is the Meteor’s and the fact that they are one of very few independent bands and artists that have made the shortlist.
We also spoke to Miriam Ingram over the telemephone about the release of Trampolonica, which is a remix album of her own debut album Trampoline, which was released to much glee last October. She told us about the process of recording this remix album working with some of the premier Irish electronic artists, what is was like to hear the remixes for the first time, as well as about her progress on recording album number two.
We started the show with Lovely Allen by Holy Fuck, from their fabtastic album LP. Nialler9 recommended These Lay Waters from Adrian Crowley’s stunning album Long Distance Swimmer, which is to be released this Sunday the 16th December in Whelan’s. We listened to the original version of Inhale from Miriam Ingram’s Trampoline, and heard the Ian McDonnell remix of the same track to end the show.
Here is the mp3, and apologies for the delay.
