Flecks - This Must Be The Place (Talking Heads cover)

Info: The only thing in life that doesn't disappoint, ever, is good music, and if you look for it, you'll always find it, and right now it's effortlessly found in Ireland. Thursday night was the October Gigonometry session, this is my second time attending in back to back months, purely based yet again, on the sheer quality of the line-up. Wowed by Maria Kelly and her incredible voice and illustrative lyrics, the electro-pop, rock and fun and abandon of Dreaming of Jupiter and their genre-spanning set. A first encounter with the wonderful Flecks from Dublin, I must point out they had sophistication and very enjoyable calm grooves all the way up to the end of their set, when they covered Talking Heads (video above) just before their final song of the evening. Then the night finished with Buffalo Sunn, a band I'd heard loads about over the past few months, and one who are already moving beyond the 'check them out' stage, like Fleet Foxes with happiness thrown into the mix, but also a keen sense of sincerity in their music. I'm being earnest when I say 'what a time to be alive', and a music fan in Ireland. Here's some photos of some very talented Irish musicians.
